Coming to a store near you in October, you will soon be able to pick up Guinness Foreign Extra Stout. This Stout has been brewed for more than two centuries and dates back to 1801. The Foreign Extra Stout is brewed with extra hops that create a more intense flavor. The addition of the extra hops gives the beer has a distinctive flavor and allows for a longer shelf life since the hops act as a natural preservative. The ingredients of the Foreign Extra Stout are malt, roast barley, hops, yeast, and water. The alcohol by volume content is 7.5%. To serve the Foreign Extra Stout, you can pour the stout in a signature Guinness goblet or enjoy it right out of the chilled bottle.

Let’s talk about to the taste of the Foreign Extra Stout. The appearance is a strong deep brown color. I poured the FES into a goblet at a 45 degree angle and let my taste buds take over. The stout has a rich and deep sweetness to it due to the malted barley. There is a strong caramel coffee taste as well that you can pick up on the aroma from the stout. Some beers give me a bad after taste once you have finished the beer, but the Guinness Foreign Extra Stout leaves me wanting more. Having tasted other Guinness’ products I find that the quality is right up there with the rest of them. Guinness fans will be psyched that the Foreign Extra Stout will now be available for the first time in the U.S. since before the prohibition back in 1920. You can pick up a four pack for $9.49 which is a great value for an outstanding stout.
