Guinness Extra Stout(Canada)@ 5.0% served cold from a 341 ml bottle
A-pours a dark cola brown with medium size tan head with very little retention leaving almost no lacing along the pint glass
S-dark roasted malt , coffee
T-toasted grains , some barley and hops add to a somewhat roasted bitterness finish
MF-moderate carbonation , crisp finish , just lacking something for a Guinness
Ov-a bit of a dissapointing brew , a maybe for trying again

cheers LampertLand

I was expecting really more from this beer. It pours a dark, very dark chocolate color. head is minimum with almost no retention. It has a toasted coffee smell. little bit of chocolate also.

It has a bitter taste, with a remarkable presence of hops. Not my favorite flavor for a beer.

Poured into a dimpled Guinness Extra Stout mug, appropriately enough.

A: Poured black with about an inch of rolling brown head, the foam of which clung to the glass as it disappeared, leaving a ring around the edges and a thin film on top as the beer disappeared (stolen by goblins? We may never know).

S: Wet and tinny. No real scent to speak of, which was a bit of a disappointment.

T: Roasty charcoal notes and a bitter carbon char finish. Pretty basic.

M: Rich for a medium-bodied brew, with a dry, crisp finish.

O: Only so much you can say about a classic. Sure, it's macro by BA standards, but I think it holds up in its category better than most mass-produced pilsnery lager beers do in theirs.

Guiness extra stout for NA market is brewed just across the border in New Brunswick-- assuming the Moosehead brewery is the NA contractor. I buy one or two bombers/monthly even though the craft stout market is strong here. The appearance is dark color with a large head that pillows. clumps and laces. Smell is of dark roasted malt and hops. Taste is of the heavy roast malts, dark coffee/chocolate undertones and hops. Mouthfeel is medium and crisper than some. Overall I still very much appreciate a guinness extra stout even though it is "macro" for practical purposes. The fact it is brewed just up the way makes me think the stock is a bit fresher here.
