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.

Thanks to Ian downstairs. Pours deep brown with a small tan head. Aroma is sweet but roasty, slightly astringent with a nuttiness and cocoa character. Flavor starts sweet with some roast pushing in before the nutty character comes strong. A bit of a marshmallow note pushes in before a sweet and malty finish. Medium body and a crisp carbonation.

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 (2069) - 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

Dark pour with little head though I do notice the carbonation when drinking. Good balance between hops and malts. Easy drinking dark beer.

chinchill (2142) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 30, 2014
12 oz bottle served in a goblet. Looks and smells like a typical Irish Stout, but tasting reveals a slightly high (and a bit too lively) carbonation level and more generous use of hops. The nose is more spicy than usual too. Relatively complex flavor with hints of chocolate, coffee, molasses and dried fruit. Near even sweet/bitter balance.

Bottle; basically black in color. Aroma of roasted malt, meat, caramel, and touch of sugar. Nice complex flavor that really opens up. Sweet and roasted: fruit and caramel. Alcohol hidden. Easy to drink.

Dark, ebony color with a tan tan head. Charcoal, smokey aroma. Full body flavor, with a nice stout finished.
