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 youíll 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.

Pours a basically black color with a medium head and good lace.

The beer is particularly aromatic. Chocolatly with some mild ashiness and berries. The mild but troublesome character of cardboard is present in the aroma.

The flavor is very roasty to the point of being ashy. The beer is nicely bitter and has a lot of chocolate without sacrificing a good deal of dryness.

This is pretty nice beer but itís a touch short of greatness, I canít imagine that this isnít freshest as I bought this about the moment they started selling it on the Des Moines market, but I want to think that the beer would be significantly better at source.

Maris (1390) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - OCT 19, 2016
From a 355ml bottle on 19/10/2016. Pours close to black with a small head. The nose is roasty and nutt, with a bit of vanilla.. The flavour features dark chocolate with hints of caramel, coffee and vanilla, along with some mild vinous notes. The bitterness is quite sharp with some burnt character to it. Full bodies with moderate carbonation. A solid enough stout.

Werckmeister (2277) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - JUL 24, 2016
0,355l bottle at home. No BB date. black color, small dark coffee-colored head. smells nicely of bitter chocolate, earthy, coffee, roast, lightly leathery, nicely creamy, also some milk chocolate, very nice smell. medium to full body, soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes of coffee, a bit ashy, earthy, hints of bitter chocolate, a bit scratchy bitterness. finishes lightly roasty bitter and earthy with notes of coffee and leather. overall very nice beer, taste is lacking a bit compared to the very nice smell, might be also related to freshness since its unclear how old the bottle is.
