I am not a huge Guinness drinker but during my trip to Ghana, this is what was served to me each evening. The flavor was a little tough to handle the first couple of days but by the end of the trip, I was loving it. Foreign extra offers a stronger taste then your common Guinness. The sweet malty flavors really come alive in your belly and fills you up after a couple bottles. As you can imagine, the color is dark as night.

Huge thanks to SeaBass for bringing this one back from his trip to Africa.

A: Pours a deep dark nutty brownish black hue. Small tan head no retention or lace.

S: Wonderful sweet aromas. Molasses and Sorghum. Very sweet and lactic, almost syrupy in flavor. Hints of chocolate (sweet) with some dark fruit.

T: Wonderful flavor, probably the best variation of Guinness I have had. Loads of sweetness. Molasses and very sweet sorghum. A milky chocolate type quality with some strong dark fruit undertones. Hints of roast to provide a bit of balance to the sweetness. Unique, but good.

M: On the fuller side of medium, average carbonation, almost syrupy on the tongue. Not your typical Guinness.

D: Very good, malty sweet, and yummy. Glad SeaBass brought this one home to share with me!

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Format: thanks to my mate Simmo who brought me one back from Africa. A 440mL black can. I love the half-English, half-African writing on the can.

Appearance: pours a solid black with a heavy tan-coloured head that dropped to a creamy half-finger with fantastic retention. Looks pretty much like the Extra Stout - which is not a bad thing.

Aroma: the aroma is similar too - plenty of roasted malts, toffee and dark fruits. I think this is just an amped-up version of the extra stout.

Taste: roasted coffee with some chocolate and toffee. Some of those heavy fruits again.

Aftertaste: the same bitterness comes through on the finish, which is nice.

Mouth feel: heavier in feel than Guinness Draught, and a moderate carbonation. Not quite as creamy but still fairly smooth.

Overall: a decent version of Guinness - it seems the stronger it gets the better it is. More complex and more interesting.
