BBB63 (6368) - 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.

decaturstevo (5342) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JUL 4, 2007
A dark brown pour with an almost yellow head. A light malty aroma with a hint of sour to it. A flavor of slightly sweet malt with a medium bitter finish. A very thin palate an a bit fizzy for me. Just a little bland for me and fizzy. Not terrible but just short.

mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 13, 2007
Bottle. Pours a deep brown body with a creamy whitish head. The aroma has some sweet vanilla, chocolate, and mild roast. Moderately oily body. Toffee, roast, and chocolate start out in the flavour and there are also some hints of vanilla. Kind of surpising that itís classified as an Imperial but still, it was pretty decent.

JMerritt (1867) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - MAR 29, 2008
Dark garnet brown with a tiny tan head that is quickly and totally diminishing. Dry coffee and chicory aroma with spicy, roasty malts (bordering on burnt) and whiffs of cocoa. Bitter, roasty flavor. Dry finish. Velvety soft mouthfeel with fine carbonation is about perfect. Very surprising that this is 8% abv, relatively high alcohol level is completely hidden, but overall, there isnít much setting this above other cheaper and more readily available stouts.

Bottle from dkachur, thanks! Deep dark brown color. Soft roasted aroma with hints of peach and licorice. Dry roasted flavor with loads of laurel and licorice. Some dark chocolat. Slightly alcoholic. Just a bit thin. Solid extra stout.

GT2 (9166) - San Diego County, 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.

ansermadide (1526) - Kyle, Texas, USA - JUN 24, 2013
Very dark brown in color with a light brown, airy head, this is a well-carbonated stout. It has a really great, dark, roasted, almost nutty, sweet nose that ends with a touch of cocoa powder. The flavor is heavily roasted and bitter, but clean. It has a pleasant palate, easy drinking for a stout and pretty sessionable. Itís light-bodied, but heavy on the tongue, with a clean, roasted finish and a touch of sweetness and a welcoming bitterness.
