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.

Black pour with a 3-4 finger, creamy tan head and some little tan floaties. Aroma is chocolate, roast, black malt, hazelnut, woody malt, woody, earthy hops and dark fruit. Flavor is sweet and chocolatey right away, drying out a bit as some earth, herbal and mineral notes come in, then nice nutty and burnt sugar notes along with dried tree fruit and some nice dark fruit, woody and slight boozy and vinous notes to the finish. Medium to heavy in body with a creamy, viscous entry, very light, but blanketing and surprisingly sharp carbonation, and slightly dry, still creamy finish wiht a hint of chalkiness. Really solid stuff, I bought it on a whim, basically just to rate in a mix your own section, I think I will go in for a sixer before the cold weather is over.

Well done for style. Light crisp roast with a hint of chocolate. Pours black with God mocha head and lacing. Light bitter finish. Smooth, with slightly creamy consistency. Taobat Scion.

Malt character closer to imperial stout, than a dry stout. Great flavor with pronounced tones of chocolate and coffee. Slightly bitter aftertaste. Great beer.

Dark brown beer with reddish hues that supports a medium foamy beige head. Surprisingly light nose of coffee, vinegar, and licorice, but it’s all rather faint. Flavor is stronger with semi-sweet cocoa, roasted grain, and a bit of smoke all hitting at once and then some sweetness comes through, like burnt caramel or molasses, and everything finishes with a pleasant bitterness. The texture is a bit light and fizzy, but otherwise this is a solid stout.

Jeez I just realized this is 8.0 abv which explains the price point and hangover. Pours dark and stouty, some sweet roasted malt.

This was a nice surprise! Pours deep brown with no head. Huge chocolate aroma. Very smooth, malted finished with a slight hop bite. Well done.

Pretty good for Schlafly! Very malty, dry in the palate as it should be. Dark molasses, chocolate, roasted coffee. Some dark fruit flavor too.

MadRobin (2239) - Silver Spring, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Poured from 12 oz. bottle. Opaque, near black with a 2-finger tan head and very good lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, hot chocolate and caramel. Taste of chocolate, toasted malt, molasses, roasted coffee, nuts and apples. Medium/full body and medium/high carbonation. This richly flavored stout is certainly "extra." I'm not certain how "Irish" it is. But don't quibble, just enjoy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
