COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Labatts 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. Editors 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

To me, I have had better tasting stouts...it is just a very strong stout, with an extremely bitter after taste, which makes it less than enjoyable...

I prefer the regular stout. Maybe I am a wuss, but this was just too much. More bitter, and very strong. The flavor is still truly Guinness, but I will stick with the normal stout.

Hall of fame, all-time classic - cant go wrong with this one.

RERATE: Have had this a few more times, and my previous rating was way too generous. Nasty bitter, without the charm of the regular stout. Barely drinkable Canadian wannabe.

Not my favorite Guiness, a tad bitter but availability and price make it a good choice.

Mads Langtved (2244) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - JUL 11, 2002
Bitter, bitter. A little too much. I would rather drink the normal Guinness Stout.

Oily, bubbly, roasted chocolate ale…Nowhere near the foreign version...

UPDATED: MAR 31, 2003 My favorite version of guinness, big on flavor. Nicely sour.

brownalegirl (199) - Fountain, Michigan, USA - JUL 6, 2002
I would rather drink Miller or Labatts just because the expectation of drinking a Guiness is so high that I was amazingly disappointed by the amazingly weak liquid that came out of the Guiness bottle. It might have sufficed if I had never had Guiness on tap or out of a can.

Much better than Guinness Draught in a Bottle.
