Based on a beer first brewed in 1821, Guinness Original Extra Stout is a direct descendant of the early recipes from the Guinness Archive. Still brewed at the Guinness St. James’s Gate brewery in Dublin, Guinness Original Extra Stout is crafted from finer quality malt, hops and Irish barley. Sharp and crisp to the taste, it’s an entirely different experience from the smooth, creamy Guinness Draught. Medium and balanced, with roasted character and subtle fermentation fruitiness with warming, toasted aromas of coffee, toffee and caramel. A distinctively black and full bodied stout beer, with a rich creamy head.
