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.

Whenever Buxton is involved with my palate it’s a joy! This is a very classic stout, extremely rich and tasty. It pours oil black with a medium brown head and good lacing. Aroma is roasted malts, smoke, chocolate fudge. Complex taste with roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, tobacco, leather, vanilla. A thick dark treasure of dark lingering flavours. Perfect!

Brew_Cat (119) - Athens, GREECE - AUG 11, 2015
33cl bottle. Pours almost opaque dark brown with large long lasting light brown head. Excellent aromas, heavily malty with notes of roasted, burnt barley and mocha coffee, hints of tobacco at some point. Average hop presence mostly resin. Tints of raisin, plum, prune, dry fruits. Full body, creamy texture, lively carbonation, bitter finish. An excellently well centered top class beer. Gives a sense of aged beer when it’s actually not aged. Gimme more!

Wow, Pitch black and hugely sense, dark brown head. As you usually only see at the strongest of imperial stouts . Extremely chocolatey, dark roasted coffee, tat of toffee, tat of dark hops. Super impressive stuff, even more so at this abv. One of the best selling stouts I?ve had, ever. String bitterness of roasted rye bread. Solid carbonation yet I kept in sipping and supping. So tasty. An impressive brew from Buxton, again. One of the best stouts I?ve had this year easily, perhaps even even. (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

rubbishystuff (2334) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 26, 2015
From WLVL. This was proper good. A lot of the good qualities of a imperial stout but with less booziness and no oak. Rich but not overwhelming, smooth but not slippery. Minerally aroma and taste. Way richer than the strength indicates. Serving: Bottle

Nonshaugen (463) - 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...

Medium/heavy aroma of malts, caramel, wood, chocolate, roasted malts and coffee.

Opaque black beer with a slight/medium dark brown head.

Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, wood and chocolate; ends slightly bitter and dry with roasted malts and coffee.

This beer is intense, complex and balanced. The beer is super dark and roasted, definitely noticeable in the aroma, appearance and flavour.

Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. An inky black beer that pours without a head. It has very rich dark chocolate and liquorice flavours, spicy red fruity notes and a roasted and fruity finish.
