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.

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!

wchesser (1899) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 26, 2016
Bottle. Label just says ’Extra Stout-Stout Ale’ but ABV is the same. Pours deep black, quite thick for the ABV with some brown lacing. Nose is molasses, some stewed prune, dark roast malts. Taste is some sweet malts with a bitter roast finish. Flavors of treacle, prune, and baker’s cocoa. Drinks like an imperial and a great representation of an English strong stout. Not quite as good as the Kernel’s but a close second.
