Appearance - Pours a dark cola brown with a light tan, 2 finger head, good retention, and leaves behind a thick, sticky lace.

Smell - Aromas are more sweet malt than dark roast, with a decent amount of bittering hops to boot.

Taste - Follows the nose, a lot of bittersweet character to this beer. The sweet malt presence is met with an earthy, bitter hop which dances on the tongue; only after their tango does a nice roasted coffee character come out near the finish, while the bitterness rides beneath.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Carbonation is decent for a stout. Finish is dry.

Overall - Bigger and stronger than it's 'draught' brother, extra stout gives a much truer impression of what St. James can bring to the table. An interesting beer from sip to finish.

A- a dark pour with a half-inch of mocha brown head.

S- roasted malt and coffee on the nose, like guiness with an added umph.

T- coffe and some semi-sweet chocolate, smooth finish with a bitter twang, slightly metallic. A little thin on the feel.

O- a very solid stout but still misses the mark just a bit on aroma and mouthfeel.
