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.

Piana brązowa drobno i średnio pęcherzykowa, szybko opada do kilku milimetrów trwałej, delikatnie zdobiącej szkło obrączki. Barwa czarna jak smoła, nieprzejrzysta. W aromacie gorzka czekolada na pierwszym planie połączona ze świeżo mieloną czarną kawą i sporą palonością, w tle nuty torfowe i stare drewno dębowe. W smaku podobnie, początkowo wytrawna goryczka ciemnej czekolady i ziaren kakaowca, mocna kawa espresso, palone słody, whisky, po chwili pojawia się likierowa słodkość. Fajnie jest to zbalansowane, odwrotnie niż zazwyczaj do głosu dochodzą kolejne nuty. Nagazowanie średnie do niskiego, odczucie w ustach półpełne, ale treściwe. W afterteasie czuć nie do końca ułożony koniakowy alkohol i palone kable.

minutemat (4147) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2015
330ml bottle from Eebria. Pours very dark with tan head. Aroma is dark malts, coffee. Taste is rich & full flavoured with coffee and chocolate notes. It’s a powerful stout that packs a punch. But then it was never going to disappoint.

23/IV/15 - 33cl bottle from a trade @ home - BB: n/a, bottled: 3/I/14 (2015-462) Thanks to JefVerstraete for the trade!

Clear black beer, big creamy irregular beige to brown head, stable. Aroma: soapy touch, roasted, sweet, some dried fruits, charcoal, little metallic. MF: soft carbon, medium body, creamy texture. Taste: pretty sourish start, are they sure this beer is good for ageing? Bitter, dry, hoppy, roasted, some coffee, bit of chocolate, caramel touch. Aftertaste: coffee, creamy, some chocolate, hoppy and bitter finish. Good beer, but not sure it will age well, per se.

Totally black colour on the body, thick pour, one finger of thick, dark brown head with good retention, leaving medium lacing on the glass. Aroma of dark roasted malts, coffee, some vanilla too. Rich taste, lots of roasted malts, plenty of coffee, ash, coal, some fruity touches, nicely bitter. Full and thick body, good carbonation, sticky on the palate with a smooth texture.

CraftyBeerTour (141) - Barcelon, SPAIN - APR 21, 2015
33cl bottle. Aromas of milk choc, dark bread crusts, liquorice but above all coffee. A jet black oily pour produces a dark tan foam, that is quite dense and persistent. Flavour is suitably rich, sweet up front, then roasty, slight earthy bitterness, velvety texture, light buzz of carbonation, lingering drying burnt bitterness. Seductive.
