From the brewer

A direct descendant of our archival recipes, Guinness Extra Stout is based on a beer first brewed in 1821, when Arthur Guinness II set down precise instructions for brewing his Superior Porter. This beer has since become the precursor to every Guinness innovation you’ve ever enjoyed. Brewed at our St. James’s Gate brewery in Dublin, Guinness Extra Stout is crafted from finest quality malt, hops and Irish barley.

Who's been drinking this

Better than my memory of this. Still a little prickly and bitter, but a smooth chocolate roast evens it out. Most of it was going to go into the corned beef anyway.

Very annoying bitterness that doesn't not contribute to the beer and that keeps building up. No other complementary flavors to mellow the bitterness.
Tastes like the Guinness bundt I had on St. Patrick's Day, with a malty bitter chocolate and sweetish cake flavor. It's not a bad beer, but let's just say it's much better as a cake.
I was too lazy to go where they had beer I really wanted...
