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.

hopscotch (10215) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 18, 2007
Bottle... Pours very dark and sits almost black in the glass with a mid-sized, creamy, khaki head. Good retention. Coffee, cola and vanilla notes comprise the nose. Surprisingly, I didnít pick up on any chocolate or cocoa. The flavor is a combination of rich, sweet goodies and ends up tasting like a heavily toasted campfire marshmallow. The alcohol is very well-disguised. Medium-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and feather-soft carbonation. Bitter-sweet, well-roasted finish. Many kudos to vyvvy for providing me with this excellent stout! Imperial though?

Tap @ Schlafly St. Louis. Pours a brown appearance with a light brown head. Anise, dark fruity, anise, Belgian chocolate aroma. Somewhat roasty, a touch burnt, dark chocolate flavor. Not my favorite.

GT2 (9410) - Oceanside, California, USA - MAY 12, 2011
Tap at Paradiso Georgetown as Schlafly Extra Stout. The pour is a deep cola ruby to deep brown looking near black in the glass. Topping the pour is a lively, deep brown coffee head with small retention and weak but present lace. Aroma is burnt caramel, cooked cherries, wet tobacco and earth. Taste is bitter, spicy, full of tobacco, gets a little sweet and syrupy. Mouthfeel is rich, heavier, syrupy, full of grenadine.

shrubber85 (9332) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - SEP 8, 2011
Bottle. Molasses, chocolate, ash and alcohol aroma. Opaque brown-black color with moderate head. Lightly sweet molasses/chocolate malt and moderately bitter herbal/alcohol flavor. Decent - a bit rough.

DrSilverworm (8877) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 23, 2013
12oz bottle, bottled 1/03/13. Pours dark brown, with a 1-finger thick brown head. Kind of a hoppy nose, with toasty and chocolate malt, and a sort of metallic smell. Light, but decent lace. Good big predominantly bitter taste. Bittering hops are noticeable in the flavor, but thereís little to no American-style piney / resiny flavor here, barely any earthy hop, even. As far as I can tell, mostly just bittering hops, and it works well here. Nice toasty, lightly roasty malt, light dark chocolate, just a bit of coffee flavors here. Bigger body, with good chewier texture. Light, crisp carbonation. Finish is more on the dry side overall. Impressive stuff. Pretty faithful take, flavor-wise, on an irish dry stout, despite the high ABV. This works.

jercraigs (8810) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 25, 2015
2015-08-21. Black body with a tan head fades. 3+ Aroma is sort of fruity with notes of treacle. Flavour is similar, treacle and caramel, light roast and dusty malt notes that linger in the finish. Smooth average plus bodied palate, modest carbonation. Enjoyable. Bottle from Ye Old Spirit Shop, Frederick, MD.

arminjewell (8754) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 30, 2011
Pours dark brown/black, off white head. Aroma has notes of roast, some pine, and nice hints of chocolate and coffee. Bit thin on the palate, but has nice roasted, chocolate, and coffee notes, some bread and a slightly piny bitter finish. Pretty good.

MartinT (8661) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 9, 2013
My Bottom Line:
Caramel and chocolate chips lead to a fruity second half in this effervescent Extra Stout.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy head of foam tops the brown-edged blackness.
-This doesnít feel like 8% at all.
-The nose isnít too exciting for the style.
-Light roastiness is occasionally tasted.
-This was great with steak on the grill.

BVery (8206) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - SEP 13, 2013
Bottle. Very dark pour with a small khaki head. Bitter roasted malts, cocoa, coffee. Slight sweetness to balance in a great way. Full flavored. This is excellent!

phaleslu (7831) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 20, 2010
Draft sample at Hop in the City 2010. Pours a dark, nearly opaque brown color with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted barley malts, dark chocolate, earthy hops, and tobacco leaves. Flavor of bitter dark chocolate, earhy hops, roasted barley malts, tobacco, molasses, and wood. Medium-full bodied, with moderate carbonation and an earthy mouthfeel. I missed this one in bottles this year, so I was happy to get a chance to finally try it. Labeled "Extra Stout" at the event, the Irish get no credit.
