16D - Foreign Extra Stout

 

Overall Impression

A very dark, moderately strong, fairly dry, stout with prominent roast flavors.

Comments

Also known as Foreign Stout, Export Stout, Foreign Export Stout. Historic versions (before WWI, at least) had the same OG as domestic Extra Stouts, but had a higher ABV because it had a long secondary with Brettanomyces chewing away at it. The difference between domestic and foreign versions were the hopping and length of maturation.
