This beer is a good beer, if you are buying it at a gas station. Look, in all honesty, i think this beer isnt a great extra stout... The carbonation is too in your face. Its very roasty smelling, plus some slight hints of caramel, and slight indication of bitterness. A very dark brew, with a head that sticks around as long as you can drink this beer. I like that. Tastes a lot like a good stout should, minus the nitrogen. It has a depth that guiness can provide,(ie malt, subtle hop, and roasted barley) but it has a lack in the characteristic that a good on tap beer has. My honest opinion is to get this beer on tap somewhere that is reputable, and not in extra stout. Very drinkable, and it has a soothing mouthfeel, but doesn't compare to the real thing.
