COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled; Special - Past Masters series.
Note: Prior to the official release in bottle of Past Masters Double Stout in 2011, the beer was available as a special at several beer festivals but was badged as Fullerís Imperial Stout. It has not been available in cask format, or under this name since the bottle release. The 10.7% Fullers Imperial Stout released in 2013 is an entirely different beer.

Double Stout is the second in the series, brewed to a recipe from 4th August 1893 Ė a time when ístoutí meant ístrongí. Its signature ingredient is Plumage Archer barley, carefully malted and kilned using 19th Century methods. Dark, brown and creamy this beer is brewed to 7.4% ABV and balances a rich fruity aroma with smoky, bittersweet chocolate notes.

Black as pitch with a short espresso-like head. Nose is of molasses and soy sauce and a gentle whack of chocolate, coffee and ash. Lovely creamy mouthfeel with upfront soft liquorice and dried figs. The malts are definitely chocolate heavy and combine with the bitterness into a vinous style quite like port. At the end it resolves into leather and a hint of tobacco. A fine beer and a delight to drink.

Bottled 22/02/14. A black beer with barely any head. A slick salty strong stout. Oily notes. Bags of coffee and chocolate flavours. Very nice to drink. A really lovely flavour profile. Good stuff.

rand (1297) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 23, 2014
Bottle 500 ml from La Cave du Haut Jura - St Laurent-en-Grandvaux (F). Black beer with average tan head. Torrefied aromas, chocolate-coffee, licorice, tobacco and leather. The taste is roasted but soft with the same note as in aroma. Silky and smooth texture. Notes of toffy-licorice, earth, rusk, complex torrefaction and smoke point. Dry, bitterness of hops and roasting melted, pleasurable.

Helt okej! Inte den bästa struten jag druckit. Långt ifrån Fullers vanliga kvalitet. Besviken på doften smaken däremot var bra. Mycket brända toner kan förnimma mig om lite lakrits med. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cool_Bond (1933) - Kung av ÷l @ Facebook, SWEDEN - JAN 4, 2014
Heavy alcohol aroma with some chocolate. No alcohol taste but a good taste of coffee, chocolate and easy laktris. The aftertaste is of good coffee flavor that fills the mouth a long time. Excellent beer! Follow me @ Kung av Ųl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
