BEER INFO

Brewed by:
The Schlafly Tap Room
Missouri, United States
schlafly.com

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.

Bottle: Poured a deep black color stout with a nice light brown creamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of deep chocolate notes with light roasted malt notes also noticeable. Taste is heavier than I had anticipated with loads of black chocolate notes with some roasted malt notes and some light dry bitter notes. Body is fuller then expected with good carbonation. Very enjoyable and probably closer to a foreign stout than an Irish stout.

Bottled January 2012

Poured into a chalice with a vigorous pour that only produces a minimal head.

Smells of dark fruits, cacao nibs, and a bit of roasted coffee and chocolate.

Taste is smooth with some initial sweetness from the cacao that fades to prunes and dates, then dries out to dusty finish.

Mouthfeel is decent. Slightly more carbonation than I prefer, but not so much that takes away from the smoothness of this beer.

Overall, not my favorite style, but one that Schlafly has done well and I can appreciate it.
