Guiness Foreign Extra Stout pours a very dark brown/ not quite black color with a thick milk chocolate colored head from a brown 330 ml bottle. Dark malts are present in the aroma. Lots of dark malt in the flavor, even a hint of caramel. Definitely stronger than the original in both flavor and alcohol. Sweeter too. This bottle came from the Caribbean. Definitely worth a try.

Poured into a Bruery tulip. Beer is black with a thin brown head that leaves a lot of lacing on the glass.

Aroma is sweet and very roasty.

Beer is medium bodied and very bitter. Its a little sweet up front but very very bitter. It finishes very dry, its good but I've had better Guinnesses...Guinnessi?
