Guinness Foreign Foreign Stout was brewed as early as 1801, when it was known as West India Porter. Brewing stronger and more highly hopped than the standard stout, the higher ABV and extra hops were added to preserve the beer as it traveled to the tropical markets.
This beer was pulled from the US during prohibition, so you can't find it in your local store - but you can make your own! Similar in character to the dry stout, this more robust beer straddles the difference between an easy drinking Guinness and an imperial stout. With prominent roasty flavor and dry finish, this beer is a favorite of stout lovers worldwide.
