COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Foreign Extra Stout is a beer like no other. The most full-flavoured of all. Singular and striking. Uniquely satisfying. Brewed with extra hops and roasted barley for a natural bite. Bitter and sweet. Refreshingly crisp. Always rewarding. Pure beauty. Pure GUINNESS.

Editor’s Note: This is the standard FES. Sometimes it is imported from Ireland but more often it is brewed locally. This version is most common in the Caribbean and Africa. All versions from those places, save for Jamaica, Nigeria, Kenya and Ghana should be rated here.

This is Guinness Original on steroids. Robust coffee aroma with strong cocoa presence. Taste: sweet malts, oats, dark chocolate, espresso with hints of dark fruits and mild bitter hop finish. Wish I could find it on tap.

UPDATED: MAR 19, 2018 Une Stout à la portée de tout le monde, même les non fans de la première heure. On est surpris à la première gorgée par l’amertume prononcée dès l’attaque, qui ensuite, au fil de la dégustation s’amenuise pour les notes plus « subtiles » de grillé, noisette, café caractéristiques du style. Une « gentille » stout pour le marché africain ?

UPDATED: MAR 11, 2018 Tried this beer at the airport. Even though it’s a strong one, I didn’t have any problem with finishing it, no alcohol taste or something like it. Very coffee taste, very dark appearance, and will get you drunk in no time!
