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.

It was undeniably black with a tan head. I could smell roast, toast, and chocolate. The beer tasted of very crisp chocolate, roast and super dark chocolate bitterness. This beer was a sipper that made you want to gulp, and I had trouble keeping it on the table.

mansquito (5474) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUN 14, 2015
New Beer Distributors, NYC bottle: pours black with a small and very brown head. Aroma is mollases, coffee, some fruitiness, mebbe some soy sauce. Taste is sweet with a mild bitterness towards the end which continues on into the aftertaste. Pretty thick body. A bit sticky. Actually pretty easy to drink And managable on both the sweetness and bitterness categories.

schenkt stroperig zwart met fijne bruine kraag. aroma van chocolade, gebrande en geroosterde mouten, koffie, heeft eerder het aroma van dat van een porter dan dat van een stout.
Smaken zijn behoorlijk moutbitter (gebrand), koffie, donkere en bittere chocolade, poederachtige smaken in de mond, vanille, redelijke body, romig van textuur.

Pours black with a tan head. Aroma has notes of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, caramel and licorice. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter with a long roasted, chocolate, coffee and licorice finish. Body is medium to full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

Black with tan lacing head... burnt, chocolate, roasted, coffee, treacle... thick and rich. Everything you need in a stout. Spot on once again from Buxton. Great beer and a great brewery.

On tap. Poured a dark brown with a slight off white head. Aromas were of sweet chocolate, coffee, toffee and slightly airy alcohol (likely because of associating the remainder of the aromas with coffee liqueurs). Tastes sweet, with a full body (malty), resulting in a fresh stout. Good this!

alteregoo (990) - POLAND - MAY 22, 2015
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.

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.
