Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Vancer on 02-07-2007

Our Irish-Style Extra Stout amplifies the traditional drier versions from Ireland for a bolder, black brew. The addition of both roasted barley and Dark Crystal malted barley give Extra Stout undertones of chocolate, molasses and dried fruit. The beer is generously hopped with East Kent Goldings to balance the sweetness from the malted barley.

Extra Stout is a descendent of the British and Irish porters of the 18th Century. These strong porters eventually became known as strong stout, then Foreign Stout or Extra Stout, depending on origin. Extra Stouts were exported world-wide, gaining popularity in the West Indies, Africa and parts of Asia.

Great stout. Lots of roast coffee flavor, with a hint of char. Some malt sweetness but balanced by the hops.

Smell of Carmel and nut.

Pours coffee dark, thick long lasting caramel colored head. Amazing flavor, low to no bitterness. Very good and amazing beer. I personally prefer this offer the Guinness extra stout.

On tap:
Pours a little thin, dark brown, with light tan head. This pour was to the top, but some large bubble head still managed to form as I tip it for sips. Lacing is mildly surprising. The nose is cola and root spice, maybe a hint if licorice and in some sniffs, date/fig. Also can note an alcohol burn as the beer warms.

Taste follows the nose, but with just a hint of tang added. I get this in other beers and have trouble describing it: it's a light bite like charred wood/dark pitted fruit, but not at all a major component of the taste. The more prevalent taste that lingers is a medium-dark, but fairly bitter coffee taste. Feel is a tad light, and a slight bit oily instead of being that dry. Depth/body are about medium.

Straightforward stout with a little bit behind it, making it a tad sweeter than a normal Irish dry stout. Alcohol is pretty well hidden in the taste, but might add to a lighter feel. Definitely would grab again on tap as an occasional beer, might be cautious against a six pack.
