Mountain Goat FX Stout

Mountain Goat (Asahi)

Released May 10, 2013

It's usually around this time of the year that Mountain Goat rolls out its big guns, sorry, Bigfoot. But this year, there's a different kind of stout in town, namely the FX. Short for Foreign Extra, it's a beer that weighs in roughly midway between where their Surefoot and Bigfoot normally register on the ABV scale, measuring 6.7 per cent. It's smooth, rich, deeply dark and dangerously drinkable if you're into roasty, chocolatey affairs. Traditional in its design and gently warming too, it should be perfect for when this last bout of 20C plus weather departs Melbourne and winter descends too. It's also the precursor for another big beer from Goat; we hear a new Double IPA is waiting in the wings that one of the brewers tells us is their best DIPA yet. Watch this space...
