4.23/5  rDev +5.2%

Poured from 22 oz bottle into a Half Acre tulip.

A- pours pitch black with a 2" dark cola head. Leaves rings of lacing on the glass.

S- chocolate, roasted malts, and pine.

T- bitter dark chocolate, roasted ,alts with just a touch of char. Has a nice pine bitterness at the finish.

M- medium body and carbonation. Finishes a little dry but drinks pretty well.

O- very good stout as far as regular stouts go. Nothing crazy or eccentric about this beer just a stout with good flavor and aroma. Would drink this again if I ever get another chance.

It is a black pour with a 2 finger head of tan foam and leaves some nice lacing.

It smells very roasty with a bitterness from both the roast and I believe a dark chocolate like bitterness. Nice if a bit mild.

Lots of roasted malt in the taste and it does have notes of dark chocolate, a bit of coffee, and some light sweet malt hidden pretty well, as it should be, considering the style.

It's been many years since I've had this brew(in 12oz bottles); I think it's very cool that XXX still hits the spot for me when I've tried soooo many Stouts before I got to try it again.

It's a smooth drop, mouthfeel wise....close to if not full bodied and a lightish amount of carbonation.

Yeah, I reckon Pike made and continues to make a fine Foreign Extra Stout. Good on them.

3.15/5  rDev -21.6%

22 OZ bottle with no date.

A- Poured into a pint glass leaving a one inch tan head that disappeared quickly. This stuff is like a black hole in a glass, totally opaque and almost pure black.

S-Malty, burnt toast and coffee.

T- Taste is one dimensional, some bittter roasted malt up front, and then more burnt tasting bitterness at the finish and maybe some licorice.

M- Mouthfeel doesn't match the pour which was thick looking and viscous; a bit thin for something called extra stout. It leaves a bitter chalky sensation at the end that lingers.

Nothing off about this beer, it is a vision of stout that seems focused on bitterness and color.

Poured in a goblet and developed a one half inch head, good lacing all around the glass. Roasted coffee and chocolate hit my nose; the taste is as if I am drinking strong unsweetened coffee with chocolate added. I like it, it leaves a bitter after taste that some might dislike. HOG
