Foreign / Export Stout

The Export Stout is a typical English Stout with a higher ABV and stronger flavors, originally brewed in order to survive a long journey overseas. The style was started by Guinness, and was first advertised as a "West India Porter".

Generally dark brown to black in color, the actual ABV varies, but is normally around 6-9%. Roasted and slightly burnt flavors and bitterness are elevated from the normal English Stout, with the increased alcohol providing a dry aftertaste.

Best served at cellar temperature, 55-57 degrees, in a pint glass or beer snifter.

Guinness Foreign Extra Stout

7.50% ABV

Foreign Extra Stout is brewed with generous hops and roasted barley for a bittersweet balance & full-flavored, natural bite. Developed over 200 years ago for global export from Ireland, the addition of extra hops ensured this Stout would arrive to its destination in perfect condition.
