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.

Étonnant. Un look black de chez black. Un vrai verre de pétrole à travers aucune lumière ne filtrera jamais. Un nez étonnamment discret. Par contre le ’’extra’’ se révèle en première bouche ; ’’taba da bouss’’ en première intention. Gros, gros goût de café bien torréfié mais... mais ... qui s’adoucit assez vite et ne dégénère pas sur une amertume folle comme on pourrait s’y attendre. Du coup, les équilibres sont plus complexes que prévu. J’y réfléchis encore.

Sigmund (6646) - Tau, NORWAY - MAR 3, 2016
330 ml bottle, from Vinmonopolet Kvadrat. ABV is 7.4%. Pitch black colour, large brown head. Roasty aroma with notes of strong coffee, dark bitter chocolate, liquorice and wood. Medium dry and roasty flavour, notes of espresso coffee and dark bitter chocolate, with unsweetened liquorice and hops in the finish.

VastActiv (5603) - Oulu/Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 1, 2016
Tap at Jumpru, Oulu. Colour is black with brownish head. Aromas and flavours: Some coffee, some chocolate, some syrup, molasses and roasted malts. Pretty heavy stuff for this abv. Malty backbone which I like.

Diabobale (448) - Vallata, SUD ITALIA, ITALY - FEB 27, 2016
Stout ben strutturata. E’ di color nero quasi corvino, con schiuma beige scuro, abbondante, fine e molto persistente, pannosa. Al naso sentori di cioccolato fondente e qualche nota tostata di caffè. In bocca ha carbonazione bassa e una buona robustezza. Al palato ancora cioccolato fondente, con chiusura amara finale tendente all’erbaceo.
Earlier Rating: 12/19/2015 Total Score: 4
Si presenta di un bel colore nero con qualche riflesso rubino, la schiuma color marroncino è però subito evanescente. Al naso subito note tostate (caffè e orzo), fruttate (albicocca disidratata) e lontanamente qualche nota alcolica ed erbacea. Al palato ha carbonazione bassa, un corpo leggermente strutturato ed è molto morbida. In bocca tanto torrefatto ma anche tanto amaro sul finale, con una vena erbacea. Sorso rotondo ma che lascia una buona pulizia, seppur senza secchezza.

rikstar (2133) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 19, 2016
0,33l fles bij bierkoning vandaan? Zwart als de nacht met een zeer zijde licht bruine schuimkraag. Geur is vol van cacao en koffie ook wat geroosterd. Smaak is perfecte balans tussen bitter en zoet, caramel koek met koffie in de nasmaak een bitter dat subtiel opbouwd maar niet overmeesterd. Smaak eindigt in zoute drop. Body is medium. Perfectie in een flesje

Cunningham (6912) - Halden, NORWAY - FEB 14, 2016
Ahhhh lovely evening sipper. Powerful and tasty.
Complete black as usual. Fine beige head. Ok intensity in the aroma. Chocolate and espresso. Medium to full body and a soft carbonation. Mellow nice sweetness with a fine bitterness to balance it. A bit oily texture. Lovely floating chocolate drink this one. Also some espresso and quite mild roast.
[On tap at Førtito Bar & Bowling in Sarpsborg, Norway]

Pours a black colour with a thick head. Taste is of strong coffee, roast malts and liqourice. A fairly good stout, I would class this as a foreign stout or imperial stout on rate beer

mariuspoenari (1425) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 28, 2016
33cl bottle. Viscous pitch black pour, with a very fine espresso head that is slow to rise to the surface, and that gives way to a nice lacing. Smells of roasted malts, dark chocolate. The taste follows the same notes, with roasted malts, dark chocolate, bitter espresso, a bit of smoke and dark cherries.

Nonshaugen (424) - Fetsund, NORWAY - JAN 22, 2016
33 cl bottle. Jet black, thin cherry-ish brown head. Aroma is fantastic, chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, wow... Full, thick body, nice hop bitterness, nice alcohol warming in the throat. Flavours of dark chocolate, dark caramel, dark coffee, dark everything. Plus some alcohol, but very subdued. A real treat to yourself on an insanely cold winter night like here, right now...
