Sets the standard for all Irish stouts. Pours black, great cream head on nitro. Aroma of roasted malts, choc and toffee. Taste is always the same and great Mouthfeel is too light for me, but who am I to knock Guinness. thepatrickman (1358) - Jevington, East Sussex, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2015
Still the benchmark for what a dry stout should be. Pros: Beautiful black color and, on nitro, a voluminous off-white head and creamy mouthfeel; nice, if light, roasted notes. Cons: Pretty light flavor; love-it-or-hate-it sour characteristics. Overall, a solid stout that I’m always happy to order when I’m out and about, but easily overshadowed by a lot of the world’s more flavorful, aggressive stouts.

Every now and then I get an itch for a heavy coffee like after work adult beverage, when a traditional lager won’t cut it I go back to the Extra Stout and I am always pleased. alainanoah (2) - - OCT 10, 2015 does not count
A bit richer than the original guiness and also a bit smoother. I love a dark beer and this one fits the bill. Fevernova (222) - Willoughby, Ohio, USA - SEP 20, 2015

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. Rperez (263) - Florida, USA - AUG 19, 2015

Old , good Guinness. Perfect appearance, balanced taste. Coffee , roasted malt , moderate bitterness.... Paigeturner (101) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 15, 2015
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.
