COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A black opaque ale with rich creamy roasted malt character and a very mild hop complement. This beer may look a little scary but take a sip and you’ll see why this Extra Stout can convert even lite beer drinkers to Stout lovers. A unique flavor profile that starts with a slight coffee flavor and finishes with a hint of roasty chocolate. Try a pint with a scoop of French Vanilla ice cream. This beer is a favorite as a compliment to any dessert or as a hearty breakfast drink.

Cantabrian (762) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - APR 7, 2013
A five star stout! Dark brown, pouring like thick coffee into a black night with a brown, greasy head, surprisingly this has nothing of the oily, leathery scents of some other US stouts, maculated by heavy hopping. The nose here is pure chocolate and coconut, very much like the lovely Three Boys Coconut Stout. Then, after such sweet seduction, the smooth flavour of chocolates and roasted malts is no surprise. Not much of a bitterness, neither from hops nor from charred malts. Delicious notes of vanilla to enhance the chocolate. A velvety feel, creamy on the mouth, this could be more of a sweet stout. Total redemption for US stouts, which do not need to be heavily hopped at all. This is perfection.

Pours an opaque brownish black from the bottle with thin tan ring of lacy head that doesn’t really stick. Aroma of roasted makes and a hint of sweet chocolate and sugar. Taste follows, a hint more of the sweetness but a nice bitter coffee finish. Pretty solid.

Candied sugar and roasted malts on the aroma. Blackish brown with no foam. Roasted cocoa, toffee and espresso. Overall, basic stout flavors with masked alcohol.

Fish on the bottle! Not sure why it's an extra stout.... Smokey malty smell, decent stout taste. I won't miss it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

beastmaster (204) - Florida, USA - FEB 18, 2013
Beautifuly copperhead coffee colored pour. Aroma has coffee and caramel but I’m hard of smelling. Thick and delicious. Cofee heavy with a burnt expresso bean note that fade. Very flavorful, not artificial in any way. Way to easy to drink.

Bottle from 16 Tons, Eugene. Pours very dark, with a slight bit of tan head. Aroma is rich and very chocolatey, with a fair amount of roastiness to be had as well. Body is creamy and thick, finish is dry and sweet. Really enjoyable, especially for the price.

UPDATED: AUG 23, 2013 For my birthday my girlfriend gave me 30 beers with 30 memories incorporated into the name. This one was Strohs Steelhead Stout. Named after the crazy boozy rum that turned me bright red and made me hallucinate. She asked when I wanted to wake up the next morning and I replied, The internet. Anyways, that stuff is good and this beer is better.
