I thought you were saying that there was only the one strong Guinness in the heavier, 12 ounce bottles, so I went to my local store and bought a six-pack of imported Guinness Extra Stout. This one was brewed in Canada and doesn't have the alc% on the bottle, but as I recall it's about 6.5%. It's been on the shelf of that store for a long, long time. I'll have to go look for the newly released Foreign Extra at a real beer store.No, I'm actually not wrong. There are two slightly different versions. The 6.5% has been available here for a long time, but not the 7.5%. I'll have to pick some up. I'll also check to see if the slightly less strong version is still at the store.
both versions are both still available. that's what I'm saying - you're wrong in saying that its not available in the States - it was just released in the states (which is what generated this thread and hence why I said it in my best "McLaughlin Group" w/ smiley statement since an article referenced the new release- damn interwebs).
there's now 3 versions of packaged Guinness available on the market - Draught w/ widget, Extra Stout, and Foreign Extra Stout - (4 if cans are still out there)?
