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

Oh I love me some Guinness. With age Ive come to appreciate the stout beers especially Guinness. I have yet to try the European, UK and Ireland versions but all in due time. Pours a deep, rich thick super dark brown with about a full inch and a half head. Head was light brown and slowly dissipated. Flavor of roasty, maybe woody, slightly bitter brew. Well see if its true form is better.

A thicker Guinness. Slightly sweeter up front and more roast in the aftertaste. An upgrade over the original; I'm looking for this beer on draft, preferably nitro. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Opaque dark with thick frothy head, that refuses to dissipate. Roasted coffee/malt aroma and taste, with dark chocolaty aftertaste. A lot more flavor than the draught, but also much heavier. A definite classic, that has been my go to beer for many years.

Piana nie najladniejsza, szybko opadajaca. W aromacie dominuje przyjemna gorzka czekokada. Smak palonej kawy z wytrawnym finiszem i chmielową goryczką. Piwo poprawne i bardzo pijalne, choć mogloby oferowac mocniejsze doznania zarowno w aromacie jak i smaku.

jgb9348 (6104) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 15, 2017
Deep dark brown coloured body with a large, soapy light brown head, about two centimetres tall, that leaves a pretty ugly lace on the side of the glass. Aroma of cream, milk, lactose, light malt, nuts and very little else - mellow in the nose. Light to Medium-bodied; Assertive cream, milk and lactose flavours throughout with a lot of nuts, earth and malt, but the lactose and cream are very evident, even on the end. Aftertaste shows a lot of milk, some earthy malt and toffee sweetness coupled with a touch of light cherry and fruit flavours near the end - nice and subtle. Overall, a smooth and very mild stout with a thinnish body and showing only a touch of complexity from fruit, compared with the majority of the taste - which is all about cream and lactose with some small malts. I sampled this 33 cL bottle purchased by my Uncle Larry on the Eastern Shore of Virginia in 2016, sampled at home at his house here in Pungoteague, Virginia on the Eastern Shore in his honor on 15-January-2017 - RIP Uncle Larry.

Flagship for stouts in my book. Certainly the first I ever had. Strong in most ways. Opens with a dark black appearance and a dark tan head that slowly leaves. Little carbonation. Unusual scent, sort of sweet, fruity and grainy. Heavy taste. Molasses. Raisins. I have moved on. Like the really strong, high alcohol content of the newer stouts I have recently tried. Actually I think Guinness is best as a black and tan. Now there you go.

Very dark with a finger white head, this beer radiates a soft scent true to its style. The taste is thin and not lasting but easy to down while also filling. Good beer overall.
