Guinness Foreign Extra Stout

94 / 100

I made a point to drink a few of these on my recent trip to France. I should have brought as many as I could home with me. Not being able to get this style of Guinness in the United States is a crime.


Oh the lovely, sweet, thick black elixir. It kind of looks like motor oil. The coffee and toffee aromas hit first. Yum. It has a warming, familiar flavor. It's kind of like that hot chocolate your mother used to make for you. That sort of comfort comes through in the flavor. It's sweet, it's malty - it's delicious.

Night and day from the stuff you can get here - sadly.

so foreign extra stout just means stronger flavor or also abv?
