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 Fuller’s 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 – a time when ’stout’ meant ’strong’. 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.

A room temperature bottle sold to me by a nice man in the Fullers pub! Opaque black brown beer. Good bubbly pale tan head. A light semi dry palate. The dark malt is quite mild with a trace of licorice. A little tang, whisper of milky coffee. Semi dry finish with the dark malt tang lingering in the aftertaste. Light for it’s abv.
