COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Labeled simply as "Extra Stout" for the US market, this 7.4% stout is called Stronge Extra Stout in the UK and was brewed to celebrate the arrival of Buxton’s new brewer Colin Stronge. However we are not allowed to use the word Stronge in the states because it implies that the beer is high in alcohol as opposed to the brewer’s last name. So the name was simplified to Extra Stout, our apologies to Colin. Extra stout has a full rich body with huge proportions of dark malt that lend this traditional stout masses of tar, smoke and leather.

dysenteri (127) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - SEP 14, 2016
33 cl bottle from Etre Gourmet. Bottled 151124, 10 months old. Pitch black with minimal brown head. Loads of chocolate in aroma, also dark fruit, raisins, vanilla, coffee, roasted malts. Roasted flavours, a bit lactosey also. Dark chocolate. Gets tastier when it gets a bit warmer so don’t drink it too cold. It has a pretty full body, nice mouthfeel to it.

drjoeng (857) - SINGAPORE - AUG 30, 2016
7.4%ABV. Stout. Poured out black. 40ºSRM. It poured out the way I like impys to pour out, which is with an oily sinuous, darkly sinister slightly resinous physicality. Nose on this one is Chinese medicine, liniment, fresh roast coffee. Bourbon. Mouthfeel is smoky, light but with heavy. Palate has charred wood, bamboo charcoal. Palate has black bread, dark roasted barley, smoked wheat toast, like something you’d do over wood fire. Clean noble hops. Finish is medium and heavy smoke. Goes on Favorites List !

colui72 (661) - HONG KONG - AUG 27, 2016
Whenever Buxton is involved with my palate it’s a joy! This is a very classic stout, extremely rich and tasty. It pours oil black with a medium brown head and good lacing. Aroma is roasted malts, smoke, chocolate fudge. Complex taste with roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, tobacco, leather, vanilla. A thick dark treasure of dark lingering flavours. Perfect!

Bottle. It pours jet black with a creamy brown head. The aroma is bitter dark chocolate, coffee, toffee and a little smoke. Mild roasted. Quite thick mouthfeel. Quite bitter roasted flavor that leaves notes of coffee, tobacco and light tar. Dark chocolate notes. Full flavored for the abv. Very nice!

3fourths (9137) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 9, 2016
Bottled dated July 18 2014 pours black with a dark brown head of limited retention. Aroma impression is malty in the way of dark chocolate, roast, ash, nougat, fudge cake; yeasty-phenolic in the way of metal flakes / iron / blood; minimally hoppy and only slightly oxidized. Medium-full body, semi-sweet to off-dry, rich and savory with fine carbonation. I would prefer the carbonation be more lively-frothy, and would think more aroma hops would suit the phenol and malt well (though two years old is certainly no fair age to judge a beer’s hoppiness), but as it is it’s expressive and nuanced enough to make things interesting.
