COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Labatt’s brew a pale ale base to which is added the unfermented but hopped Guinness wort extract. Guinness Extra Stout is brewed in Canada by Labatt under license from Arthur Guinness Son & Company. Editor’s Note: It looks like Moosehead is also brewing Guinness. Bottles in the US are from there of late, but Canadian bottles are still showing Labatt. 04/23/06

I like this WAY more than draught. More flavor, more body. If only ALL Guinness was as good as this I would have a better opinion of it.

Bottle gifted by my cousin (to your health!) poured into a glass mug. Wish I had a bar next door with Guinness on tap so I could compare to a draught but here goes...Aroma - roasted malt and brown sugar. Ap - dark with a tan head - no surprise here. Taste - 70% roast malt, 10 % hop bitter, 10 % bitter chocolate, 5 % roast malt-cherry, 5% - other? Palate - smooth but also carbonated at the same time. I have a home brew stout aging in the basement and will add an edit to compare it in about another two weeks.

Bottle. Much better than Guinness Stout draft! Medium hoppy aroma with actual discernible carbonation. Balanced hoppy taste. Slightly bitter finish.

ajnepple (3285) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - JUN 21, 2015
12 oz single bottle from Mile High Wine & Spirits. Black appearance with a light brown head and lacing. Aroma of roasted grain, wheat, bitter chocolate. Similar flavor with a mild roast bitterness and a light dry, lingering finish. There is just something off about it. No thanks. Pairing: Dropkick Murphys - I’m Shipping Up to Boston

Bottle @ Butcher Block, Sarasota, FL. Dark, rich, chocolaty aroma. Tastes great. A tiny bit too bitter on the palate, but the overall deliciousness negates this. Overall, a tasty & refreshing dark brew. Just disappointed it’s not brewed in Ireland.

A pleasant dry stout. Nothing crazy good, but good none-the-less. Something to drink when there isn’t much better.

Whiffs of chocolate, coffee and some detectable hops. Great espresso bite with some chocolate coming beforehand. Lingering dry finish with espresso and hops closing the door ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a black from a bottle with a thick khaki head. No nose to speak of, perhaps dampened by the pillowy head. Flavor is of mild coffee, maybe a little cherry jam. Dry in the mouth, overall I feel the mouthfeel is where this beer stands out comparatively, other characteristics are kind of meh.

Finhead (1323) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - APR 15, 2015
Deep black pour with a frothy, tan head. It has a sugary sweet aroma with mild chocolate. The medium body has smooth texture, sweet taste, and a dry finish.

I don’t know about "Best beer in the world", but definitely a better than average dark beer. A little lighter for a stout, but still medium-heavy in appearance and mouthfeel. Has a good flavor....mainly of chocolate malts, little bit of caramel, and minor hops. Slightly bitter going down. Overall, a quality beer, recommended for anyone who hasn’t tried.
