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

12 oz Bottle -- Pours black with a thin soapy light brown head. Aromas of raisin, chocolate, fig, brown sugar, black current, and toast. Not overly sweet, with a long bitter finish. Pretty lively carbonation.

UPDATED: MAR 19, 2016 Originally rated on 8/15/08. (i was a big fan back then) Upon checking my inventory i couldnt belive that i hadnt reviewed this one. I used to be a huge guinness fan until they moved production to canada a few years ago and the quality (to me) dropped off. Anyway this is the only guinness that i still occasionally buy. A dark black body, minimal carbonation with a thin head, Mouthfeel thick and creamy. Flavor of malts and a little chocolate. Good finish, still a top notch brew.

From a bottle. Roasted coffee aroma. Classic dark stout appearance with an off white, well retained frothy head. Taste somewhat similar to regular Guinness with stronger roasted black coffee notes. Medium bodied and more malts in the finish.

Aroma ok with roast. Great black color. Nice carbonation, but real real water lean. Tang like on aftertaste. Better than most macros but way better stouts out there.

Pours a very dark brown. Thick pillowy tan head. All kinds of lacing.

Aroma is of dark roast malt. Coffee and chocolate are in there too, like you would expect from a stout. Theres something else too, cant quite make it out.

Taste is good. A little watery. An excellent balance between hops and malt. Its bitter, its sweet. But its not too much either way. Its almost a head to head matchup between chocolate and coffee and having a draw.

Mouthfeel is medium, not exactly what you expect from a stout. Its watery. It finishes a little bitter. Its a little lower in alcohol than I expect from a stout. But still, its super drinkable.

Overall, its excellent. A very drinkable stout. Its iconic, but this is made in Canada. Im a little disappointed. Still, very tasty Certainly worth trying!

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.
