look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

22oz bottle poured into a pair of large snifters

Pours tarry black, with sludgy sediment at the bottom, small quantity of light brown head, medium amount of visible carbonation. Smell is rich and chocolatey and fairly sweet and yeasty.

Taste is sweet, chocolatey bitterness, it's really nice.

Mouthfeel is a nice slightly gritty texture. Overall, very pleasing beer.

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.

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
