"Foreign Extra Stout is brewed with generous hops and roasted barley for a bittersweet balance and 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. Today, Guinness Foreign Extra Stout is enjoyed by millions of people around the world. Pure beauty. Pure Guinness." —brewer
"Finally, our friend has come to the US — hopefully, she'll stay. The head towers from a moderate pour, and slowly cascading bubbles take some time to build it. Black color is nothing but expected. Uniting sweet aroma with delicate roasted grain, Madeira alcohol and a faintness of hop. Silky smoothness gives the beer a gentle landing on the palate. Mildly roasted flavors pull on the taste buds, while currant berries and a warming alcohol show its size and complexity. Modest hopping, though the sweetness stays in control (or at least the roasted flavors and alcohol keep it in check). Bittersweet finish with a breath of alcohol lingering. No hype of a single-release day of a limited batch needed here — greatness can come in large quantities. Just keep it coming." —BeerAdvocate Magazine
