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.

Ciemnej barwy. Piana brunatna, trwała, zdobi szkło. W aromacie palone słody, czekolada, ciemne suszone owoce. W smaku wytrawne. Doochodzi kawa. Alkohol dosyć dobrze ukryty.

Benters (154) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2017
Pours dark black with thin tan head. Aromas of roasted malts, dark chocolate and coffee with some hop bitterness. Taste is smooth, a rich combination of coffee and chocolate with a firm hop bitterness. Roasted bitter finish. Much heftier than standard Guinness.

Definitely not as smooth or delicious as a regular Guinness Seems more bitter and larger after taste. It’s fine but I’ll pass next time ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Daboch (267) - Gdansk, POLAND - OCT 25, 2017
Prawie czarne nieprzezroczyste piwo z średnią pianą. Aromat kawy, przypieczonych tostow, również dość dużo chmielu. W smaku kawa, trochę czekolady, lukrecji, czarnej porzeczki, oczywiście obecne są nuty palone. Klasyka stylu

euniceradio (563) - Worthington, Minnesota, USA - OCT 18, 2017
Pours black, big brown head. Aroma of raisin, caramel, choc, butterscotch. Taste of same with great body and rich flavors of coffee and dark chocolate. Definitely Mich better than US Guinness Draught. Wow.

Backlog, ocena wystawiona na podstawie wspomnień z degustacji oraz przepisana z profilu na Untappd. Niczym się nie wyróżnia, przeciętny stout.

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2017 Pours jet black with coffee coloured head. Aroma chocolate and dark fruit. Taste matches. It isn't as smooth as regular Guinness but is much more full flavoured. Nice stout.

Initial mouth feel is suprisingly thin and refreshing, giving way to the familiar full body expected from stout, roast malt flavours (leather, chocolate,tabacco), and a strong, pleasant bitterness. Well balanced, satisying but not too heavy; still one of the best stouts on the market. Shame the standard(e.g draft/weaker ) vers is so insipid in comparison!

Bottle in Nattitangou, Republic of Benin. Black color, malty, roasted, chocolate,maybe some vanilla notes

Guruhso (1101) - Grindsted, DENMARK - SEP 16, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 14, 2018 Backlog from Irland. Bottle at Guiness Storehouse. Roasted aroma of caramel, chocolate, vanilla and light coffee. Some herbal, citrus hops. Moderate sweet with a bitter roasted finish. Medium body and creamy texture. A descent one... the hyped atmosphere here might have gotten me.
