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.

Rating for the past, completely forgot about it. Poured a deep black color, topped with a rather small tan colored head. Roasted aroma, some notes of coffee and chocolate also in there. Malty and chocolate taste, coffee and bitterness in the body and finish. A fine one.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2014 500ml bottle served in a chalice (sorry about that :)) A: Pours a magnificent dark brown to black color forming a big beige mocca bubbled aired head. Medium retention. Head never disappears completely, leaving only few lacings around S: Roasted malts, dark chocolate and coffee. Bit fruit and alcoholic too T: Follows the nose. Strong notes of dark chocolate, roasted malts and coffee. Delicious roasted bitterness, oh boy! M: Medium creamy body. Good carbonation. Intense roasted bitter aftertaste O: Very drinkable. Kind of excellent beer to stout lovers like me... [ BA Review @ 4/7/2012 ]

Pours pitch black with a small tan head. Aroma has notes of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, brown sugar and caramel. Taste is medium sweet and light to medium bitter with a long chocolate, caramel, licorice and coffee finish. Body is medium to full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to flat.

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.

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.
