Style: Foreign / Export Stout
 
Style Information
The Foreign or Extra Stout is similar to a Dry Stout in that they have a malty sweetness and notes of caramel. They also have a dry finish with a slight roasted bitterness. The color should be dark brown to black. The aroma should have a decent malt sweetness, caramel, roasted grains, and a slight coffee smell. The taste should mirror the aroma, with roasted malts, caramel, coffee and a very slight bitterness. There may also be a hint of chocolate or cocoa powder. The feel should be medium to full bodied. ABV ranges from 5.7% to 7.5%. IBUs should be between 30 to 60.
