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.

GoddamnNoise (62) - Pontevedra, SPAIN - JUL 9, 2016
Aroma: roastead and toasted malts, hints of coffee, burnt malts. Appearance: black color, totally opaque. Thick brown super creamy head formed by irregular sized bubbles. Above average persistence. Good Brussels’ lace. Taste: medium sweetness, medium-to-high bitterness, no sourness. Flavors of roasted malts, dark chocolate, liquorice, cocoa. A very light hint of alcohol. Palate: medium-to-full body, oily-to-creamy texture, soft carbonation, very long dry bitter (with chocolate and cocoa flavors) and slightly acid finish. Overall: a great beer, very enjoyable. The aromas of roasted malts are very good, the flavor is well balanced, the finish is extremely long and bitter and a little acid.

ciocanelu (1425) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JUN 24, 2016
Pitch black color with creamy, mocha colored head. Aroma has a more classic, english style profile with sweet malts and dark fruit notes. Taste starts bittersweet and fruity with roasted malt character and dark chocolate. Finishes more bitter with a slight acidity from the roasted malts. Medium to full bodied with medium to low carbonation and smooth mouthfeel. Overall it’s a really good, well made stout.

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.

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.
