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.

Reddish black, thin head. Nose is hoppy, slightly sweet with dark fruits. Very chocolate w. plum and cherry notes. Slightly milky, roasty chocolate finish. Aroma needs some work.

estoppel (1028) - Buffalo, New York, USA - SEP 28, 2004
Black body, small dark tan head, mild espresso nose. Nice mouthfeel, but a little weak in flavor, with sweet coffee, minimal bitterness and a sweet finish. A hint of chocolate lingers.

A decent stout, but nothing that really stands out in my mind. Good roastiness and coffee flavors with a big bitterness in the finish. Moderate thickness and good smooth creaminess.

crzybob77 (530) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 13, 2004
Opaque black just like your usual stout. Taste is smooth and easy to drink with roasted coffee. A very good drinkable stout. Sometimes stouts like this are a nice break from all of the incredibly robust stouts like expedition and world wide.

humulus (339) - Salem, Missouri, USA - SEP 12, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2004 Black as sin with a tawny head. Licorice and coffee in the nose comes strong and pulsing. Thick flavor with roasted almond and bitter hops that leave you knowing you just tasted a stout. Perfect carbonation for the style. Very pleasing. A milk stout smell and feel.

Silphium (3188) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - SEP 8, 2004
Deep chocolate brown body, thin tan/brown head. Rich aroma of chocolate, licorice, and molasses. The body was quite rich and oily with tart rich chocolate, licorice, smoke, and charcoal with a tangy and woody mouthfeel. Reminded me of an English stout or perhaps even a Baltic Porter. Also somewhat similar to Dark Horse Cream Stout but with stronger soy notes. Good stout.

jayme9874 (756) - Hamburg, New York, USA - AUG 29, 2004
Black with a quickly dissipating brown head. Roasty aroma with the usual elements of coffee, and mocha. Nice medium-full body, creamy feel, lots of roasty bitterness but not overly so, balanced nicely by the sweeter nuances. Very good stout.

Actually, I think their porter looked more like a stout than this stout, but nevertheless, the aroma is chock full of roasty chocolate, and is very pleasant. Great, smooth finish, nice smokiness - not overpowering like others I’ve had in the past. I strongly agree with those who’ve mentioned the espresso-ness to it.

Opaque pour with an intense, burnt brown head - complex aroma of chocolate, toffee, some vanilla - a little on the thin-bodied side, but the flavor does a good job at trying to make up for that - carmelized brown sugar, dark roast coffee, chocolate and a touch of liquorice all make apearances - espresso bitterness in the finish - don’t see what’s exactly "extra" about it, but good none-the-less.
