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.

Pours solid black, but not thickly. Nose full of molasses, coffee and vanilla, smooth rich and warm in the mouth. Softly textured, carrying a full on wallop of booziness, fading to a delicious cream-and-coffee aftertaste. A delicious beer, smoother and richer than most stouts; the alcohol carries a delicious roundness that just keeps propelling a strong, full dark-ale flavour along.

Bottle at home. Even though Iíve enjoyed a few Fullers beers in the past this caught me by surprise. Really enjoyed it. Poured pretty much black, thin tan head. Aroma, smoke, roasted malts, licorice. Flavour has soy sauce, coffee, chocolate. Some sweetness, bit of dryness, bitterness, lochness. Quite light mouthfeel. Tasty stuff and no mistake.

Tranquillity (1410) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 25, 2014
Really dark, medium dark head. The aroma is a bit weak compared to other isís. The taste is great though, a bit spikey and not too sweet, but with a really long finish.

When I tried this beer I fell in love. But that was a long long time ago. I raved about the hop quality that made this brew unique. Looking at it now it probably needed to be aged. English hop character in a stout is very nice though and if I can ever get my hands on an english hopped black ipa this beer will at least give me hope for it working out. I am going to rate this from memory as it is no longer available and for what I would give it now instead of the 10/10 i would have given it before trying some of the worlds best beers.

theSlipperyPen (236) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2014
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 (1280) - 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.
