Product Details - Ridgeway Foreign Export Stout

See below for information about this product:

Product Type(s): Alcoholic Drinks / British Corner /

ABV 8.0%

"FES" is a big big stout. The style was made popular by Guinness in the Caribbean and in Africa and I first came across it in a hands on way when working for Tooheys in Sydney in 1980. Tooheys brewed Guinness for the Australian market and in a slightly crazy decision sold the 8% FES version on draught. Drunk ICE COLD it was a revelation and a completely different proposition to the same beer at English pub temperature. Years later I decided to make my own version and just as back then the crucial thing was to somehow make an 8% beer dangerously drinkable...which it is! The secret lies in brewing a stout slowly at a lower temperature so that it doesn't get excessively flavoursome, and incorporating some lager malt to keep it from becoming cloying. The end result is dark and deeply flavoured with coffee and chocolate notes from the roated malts but somehow it disappears from the glass. Dangerous stuff!
