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.

phaleslu (8006) - 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.

Sampled from a 12 oz. bottle @ DLD 4/28/07. Pours an extremely dark brown color with a medium sized tan head. The aroma is roasted malt and a hint of dark chocolate, but its not very strong. The flavor is roasted malt with some chocolate and a touch of coffee. Dry finish, medium body. Nicely balanced, more like a dry stout than an imperial IMO.

blipp (7342) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 11, 2011
Draft. Pours near black with a beige head. Roasted malty aroma with light smokey notes. The flavor has lightly roasted malts, some dry nutty sweetness, and a hint of smoke. Not bad.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 26, 2007
Pours an opaque black with a small, but dense and frothy, wispy-lacing dark tan head. Aroma of lightly sweet, toasty, dark chocolate and caramel malts along with some doughy chestnut character. Starts with a nice viscosity and velvety texture revealing semi-sweet dark caramel and chocolate flavors toward a smooth, lightly roasted bittersweet finish. A nice and true to style foreign stout.

b3shine (7111) - Indiana, USA - MAR 23, 2014
Draft to taster. Looks good for the style; cola with foamy beige head. Smells of dark malt, dark chocolate, and coffee roast with some hop notes as well. Tastes like it smells, but less balanced. Bitter, but not from the hops (it’s more metallic). Average (at best) on the palate. Not bad, but smells better than it tastes.

BBB63 (6507) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUN 25, 2007
I had this at DL day: Deep brown with some reddish highlights, small ring of tan foam. The aroma has notes of bittersweet chocolate, coffee, and oats. The taste has malty overtone with coffee bitterness, mocha and vanilla notes and a dusty yeasty finish. The mouth feel is smooth and refreshing, a tad thin for the style but makes it very approachable. A good beer but more akin to a big dry stout than an Impy.

Bottle. Licorice and soy aroma. Black, dark brown cream. Molassis, fermented fruit sweetness, roast, licorice, umami. Medium body, a bit fizzy. Dry roast finish. Strong flavors, seems a bit unharmonious.
