Guinness Foreign Extra
Review Date 11/21/2008 Last Updated 2/18/2013
Updated 2/18/2013: It's a lovely night for a Guinness (brewed in Ireland as it should be), and an even lovelier one for a truly special Guinness: Guinness Foreign Extra Stout. I'm sipping a bottle from the holiday sampler 12-pack, and the Foreign Extra Stout here, like all the beers in the sampler, was brewed at the St. James Gate brewery in Ireland.
I swear this is one of the best beers on the planet. Raisins and dark bittersweet chocolate and allsorts licorice and coffee and a wonderful dark roastiness. Just as I remember. It does not get any better than this folks!
And at just $13.99 in the sampler, a true bargain as well. Hopefully, we'll see this beer, Irish brewed, on store shelves again in 2013.
And remember, try a new beer today, and drink outside the box.
