4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a viscous black-dark brown. When held to the light, traces of ruby red can be seen on the outline, but the beer is quite opaque. A tall, beige pillowy head dissipates eventually, leaving a fair amount of lacing. Aroma is rather musty, driven by wet grains. Taste is much better, however, and far more complex. Flavors of coffee, toasted malts, and slight stone fruits give the beer a sour-sweet quality, which gives way to a slightly bitter finish. As the beer warms, the malts assert themselves more and the other flavors give way. Alcohol is faint, but noticeable. Mouthfeel is thicker than water, but not by much. In sum, this is the beer by which all Irish dry stouts should be judged. That’s not to say it’s the best--a (select) few may be better--but this is the standard IMO, the exemplar of the style. Plain (nitro) Guinness is too weak, too watery for me, and Extra Foreign Stout too strong, too hoppy. But this is just right.
Watery beer. No pleasure. Maltiness, it is boozy for 5%. Thats all for what i know for this brewery and this style. Just a commercial brew. Wasting money. LaserDave (29) - - NOV 4, 2017
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 kind of liked it but it wasn't one I would tend to drink but I'm not sure why. A pretty well-balanced beer leaning towards the hoppy side. Very mild carbonation. It has a long, slightly bitter finish. very late in the finish I get a slightly metallic taste that lingers

Ciemne, niejprzejrzyste. Bardzo ładny lacing. Lekko kwaskowe, delikatna goryczka w posmaku. Zapach palonych ziaren kawy, trochę pietruszki?

Go to daily beer. Always like it. Easy to get at grocery stores in Metro D.C. JohananaV2 (278) - Hurst, Texas, USA - JUL 27, 2017
Far superior to the draft beer, which is rather flat and not very complex. Extra stout Foreign is better too. Whole Foods has it.
Just a no nonsense stouter version of the basic Guinness. I wouldn't go crazy trying to find it

Bomber from Kroger’s. Close to black and opaque, medium bodied. Roasted malt nose. Taste is bitter chocolate, malt and hops, with hops dominating the finish. Niko100 (3001) - Chicago, New York, USA - MAY 14, 2017
Rich black color; Medium slightly creamy body; Aroma of toasted malt, & some dark fruit; Flavor of roasted malt, hops, caramel, and some chocolate; Finish is slightly bitter; Overall, pleasantly surprised - pretty decent. coachd (949) - Missouri, USA - MAY 14, 2017
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.
