Ps. After that, if you like dark beers try a Sam Smith's Imperial Stout. In the bottle, which has gold foil over the top, it looks a bit darker than a Guinness ES. But after you remove the foil, you see that unlike the brown Guinness bottle, the Sam Smith's is clear glass.
Cool. I love dark beers and it has always been a small hobby of mine to seek and find obscure ones. Thank you. My wife is about ready to kill me right now because I've been watching the New England game with my "6 pack." Sam Smith's Imperial Stout, I will have to try that. Where do you get the Foreign Stout?
I first had the Foreign Extra Stout when I ordered "a Guinness" in the cafe/bar at the Hotel Muhabura in Ruhengeri, Rwanda. But about a year ago I ran across some 4-packs in the liquor store next to the Whole Foods in the town where I live, so obviously it can be ordered in the US. Maybe ask your local store?
Watch that Foreign Extra Stout it makes your eyes go funny!
Note there are a number of versions, I prefer the one brewed in St James' Dublin. It is also made in:
"FES is produced at Diageo owned breweries in Nigeria, Kenya, Ghana, Cameroon, Ethiopia, Tanzania, Uganda, Seychelles, Malaysia and Jamaica. In addition, it is produced under licence in 39 other countries. Diageo has brewing arrangements with the Castel Group to license brew and distribute Guinness in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Gambia, Gabon, Ivory Coast, Togo, Benin, Burkina Faso, Chad, Mali and Guinea" according to Wikipedia.
