BEER INFO

Brewed by:
The Schlafly Tap Room
Missouri, United States

Style: Foreign / Export Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.00%

Availability: Winter

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.

This is a dark, almost black beer. The head is tan and dense, but not exceptionally long lived. The beer's aroma is of sweet malt, a little grain, and it has a rich, heavily roasted character. The flavor is a mix of sweetness and grain. Full, thick body. Excellent brew.
