Guinness Foreign Extra Stout Beer 24 x 330ml Bottle
- Alc Vol: 7.5%

- Guinness Foreign Extra Stout is a bold tasting beer with a complex flavour profile. Originally brewed to withstand long journeys, its origins can be traced back to 1801 and the original recipe of West Indies Porter. With a full-bodied roasted and fruit flavour, it is a drink of distinction to be savoured.
- With a higher alcohol content, it has a fuller mouthful with strong smokey notes and bright hop bitterness.
- Fruit and caramel flavours begin, smoky notes and a vibrant bitterness follow. Where extra hops and a stronger alcohol percentage were once used to preserve the beer, allowing it to survive and thrive during long sea voyages, now they yield its bold taste and unique flavour profile.
- Guinness® Foreign Extra Stout is a beer born of a thirst for adventure, tracing its origins back to a recipe for our West India Porter, first set out by Arthur Guinness II in 1801. In the early 1800s, while other breweries were content to stay close to home, we struck out into unchartered territories, braving the perils of sea travel to export our famous black beer across the globe. Brewed with more hops to preserve the beer in the ships’ holds during voyages of four-to-five weeks in tropical climes, the recipe yielded a powerful drink with a complex, fruity bittersweet flavour.
- While our proudest invention to date arrived to be embraced by rest of the world, back in the brewery the team remained focused on the journey ahead. What was then known as West India Porter became the Foreign Extra Stout enjoyed today. But as the body evolved, its soul remained the same. It's where tradition meets innovation. And we're proud to transport that across continents.
- We can trace the origins of Foreign Extra Stout back to 1801 and the original recipe of West Indies Porter
- Full bodied palate of roast, fruity character
- Beer drinkers who are looking to experiment in beers but want to ensure they choose a quality liquid
- Originally brewed to withstand long journeys, the use of higher gravity and more hops resulted in a bold tasting beer with a complex flavour profile. Still brewed at our St. James's Gate brewery in Dublin, Guinness Original is crafted from finest quality malt, hops and Irish barley.
