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.

butelka, warka rozlana 24 grudnia 2015... wigilijna :) wyglad spoko pod kazdym wzgledem. w aromacie sporo nutek, zaleznie od temperatury piwa (sacze sobie powoli) rozne z przodu, najczesciej kawa, czekolada i wanilia. ale sa tez niemal na rowni z tymi palonosc, pralinki, zboza (w sumie to zbozowa kawa). na dalszym planie tez costam sie przewija, juz cholera wie co troche, owoce ciemne jakies, chleb, jakis alko a la porto. Bardzo fajna ta paleta i bardzo fajnie zrownowazona. W smaku jest ciut gorzej niz obiecal aromat, bo - jak na moj gust - ciut przyduzo kwaskowatosci momentami (pewno od palonych slodow? i znow - zaleznie od temperatury). Ale poza tym detalem tez baaardzo fajnie, analogicznie do aromatow, slodkosci tez nieco, alko dobrze ukryte (wylacznie w formie tego porto odczuwalne), niskie wysycenie, troche goryczki (kawowej w odbiorze), dosc mila, gladka konsystencja, ciut lepkie, ciala nie jakos bardzo duzo, ale tez nie brakuje... zeby taka szpile wbic, bo w koncu czemu nie, to ma toto wiecej aromatow, smakow, ciala niz niejeden RIS z nad Wisly - niewesola konstatacja.

lello4ever (631) - ITALY - MAY 6, 2016
Nera, pochissima schiuma marrone non persistente. Aroma ottimo di legno, malto tostato. Sapore eccellente, tostatura, caffè, cioccolato, torba, giusta secchezza che non eccede. Carbonazione media bassa. Ottima Stout spinta.

GlasgowTAD (1336) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAY 2, 2016
Pours opaque black with a large dark teak coloured head. Aroma is a bouquet of dark cocoa, molasses, fruity coffee, leather and oak. Taste is a rich portion of dark chocolate with a moderate cocoa content, bitter and milk chocolatey sweet, vanilla sweet, dark roast coffee, hint of molasses sweetness, modestly roasty. Long bitter dark cocoa finish. Full bodied with a decadently full mouthfeel.

Heidbummer (196) - SCOTLAND - APR 23, 2016
My word this is bold. Pours dark as hell with a thick tan head. Coffee and charcoal on the nose. Which is what you get on the taste too. Burnt caramel, espresso, hint of roasted nuts. I like this but it will divide opinion. Sign me up!
