Attention Ex Pats

26 Mar

Making its first U.S. reappearance since the days of prohibition, Guinness Foreign Extra Stout is back. Claiming to be the fullest in flavor of all the Guinness brands this black one is unlike the Draught which most Americans are familiar with. Clocking in at  7.5%abv this stout is loaded with roasted aromas and the fact that it is brewed at a higher hop rate than the Draught will not go unnoticed. Cool facts: this beer was first introduced in the U.S. in 1817 and the yeast from each batch is transferred on to the next, meaning that the original yeast’s descendants are still being used today. Rating: Traaaadition!
