Wow, that got confusing fast! So, the FES that I drank is the stuff Guinness JUST released in October to the United States. It was previously NOT avialable in the United States. Since I am not in Jamaica, Canada, Singapore, Nigeria...wherever, I don't know what the heck they have!
I just know that the FES that is now available for me to enjoy here in the U.S. of A. is a tasty beer, regardless of it's origin. I do know, however, that it is NOT the "old" Extra Stout (still a favorite and a must for most of my chili creations) and is definitely not Guinness Draught.
Okay...that's all I have.
