Pours black and is an amped-up version of a traditional dry stout. The addition of both roasted barley and dark crystal malted barley give Extra Stout undertones of chocolate, molasses and dried fruit.

Stouts for summer. Why not? While lots of folks are reaching for a pilsner or pale ale, I figured Iíd go the opposite direction, drinking some stouts, which I usually prefer to have in the dead of winter. 12 ounce bottle, with about 8 ounces poured into a snifter glass. Little to no head in the pour, despite my attempts to get something out of it. What little head their is collects in a small ring at the outside of the glass. Pours a very dark black the consistency of motor oil. Smells surprisingly fruity, with notes of raisin followed by the typical stout smell of roasted barley and chocolate. Some almond notes are there too. Surprisingly bubbly on the palate, with the roasted chocolate followed by more roasted notes and some coffee. Hop character is there, but not exactly easy to find and itís mainly in the finish. Hard to believe this is an Extra Stout with the 8% ABV. One would expect this to be heavy, almost syrupy, but thatís not the case. Itís actually a very well balanced beer and quite enjoyable.

This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a large sized head of foamy finely sized dark brown colored bubbles that were and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque black colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The aroma was chocolate and dark malt. The thick mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The thick flavor contained notes of roasted malt toasted malt dark malt and hops. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.

On tap at Schlafly Botttleworks. Pours black with tan head. Aromas of dark chocolate, roasted malts, and light coffee. Flavors of roasted malts, dark chocolate, and coffee. Finishes dry and roasty. Really flavorful stout. Truly solid beer.

Aroma of roasted coffee, dark chocolate and smokiness. Appearance was black with frothy tan head. Flavor matched the nose, and was like drinking roasted, smokey chocolate. Palate is bubbly and creamy. My favorite dry stout.

Aurelius (4773) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 13, 2010
Black, with a dark brown head. Very nice chocolate roast aroma. Dyr, roasty, nutty, good stout flavor. Medium to medium-heavy body. ONly major flaw was too much coffee acidity in the finish. Creosote in the aftertaste as well as bitter chocolate, and the alcohol becomes prominent. Tap, Flying Saucer, KC.

Interesting offering from Shlafly here. January 2010 bottle pours an opaque black with a thin cocoa head that dissipates instantly and doesnít lace. Aroma is subdued nutty, roated malts. Flavor is a nice mix of hop bitterness (not as bitter as the deScription would lead you to believe, but itís there) and smoke on top of a hearty, nutty roasted malt base. Smooth mouthfeel, somewhere between creamy and oily, not slick at all but not entirely velveteen either.

Pours opaque, brown head. Aroma is somewhat muted but maybe thatís because I just got it out of the fridge. Creamy body. Itís pretty smooth, and has a good rich flavor, slight roast, but itís not really bitter at all. It doesnít particularly stand out. Still, itís a nice brew, reasonably priced, and fairly strong without saying so. Iíll probably pick up some more of this stuff soon.
