12 x 330ml Foreign Extra Stout (7.0%)

Big Ideas Series 04 Foreign Extra Stout (7.0%) x12

  • Background

    Like a rugged off-road version of its smooth, dry Irish cousin, the Foreign Extra Stout is gnarly and coat-your-mouth chewy as opposed to clean and crisp. We’ve gone big on the roast malts here, with both roast barley and black malt in the kettle, and doubled down on the darkness with a substantial addition of molasses. The original Foreign Extra Stouts were fortified with increased hopping rates to aid preservation, and that extra bitterness balances the higher ABV as well as the treacle-sweetness.


    Tasting Notes

    Rich, lightly burned dark chocolate aromas; roast-driven and treacly with a substantial full-bodied mouthfeel. A long, bitter finish that makes for a somewhat unexpectedly moreish experience.
