Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Pours a dark blackbody with a thick, rich, craggy head with excellent retention and lacing properties. Roasty aromas of dark chocolate, cold coffee, and a bit of toffee. Flavor is sweet and cocoa-like with hints of toffee right up front, before mocha flavors, with their espresso bitterness, round out the mid-palate. There is a slight but pleasant alcoholic warmth on the finish that reminds you that this a sipper, not a gulper. Medium full body is appropriate to the austerity of its flavors and abv. I absolutely love this beer.
