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.

Lovely rich full. Best beer Iíve drunk for a while. Lovely balance of darkness, roasty pleasure with leather, hints of tobacco dark chocolate and all good things in dark beers. Sometimes with a gem once is enough but I could do a few of theses

500ml bottle, 2011, courtesy of tashi, drunk 16th June 2011. Deep brown with a tan head. Smoky, roasted nose and a similar flavour. Hints of dark chocolate, liquorice and coffee. Very smooth, alcohol very well hidden. Very easy to drink. I really enjoyed this. Perfect strong sipping stout.

2011 vintage. A deep dark stout with a thick collapsing brown head. In aroma, musty bitter chocolate with dark fruits, light peated notes, nice. In mouth, a sweet fruity chocolate malt with smooth vanilla notes, light dark fruits, smooth alcohol warmth, still solid after more than 4 years...BB 19-APR-2014

Bottle @ home. Aged 4 years. Dark brown to black color, beige head. It has developed a nice moderate vinous sweetness. Aroma of plums, raisins chocolate, toffee, honey, some coffee, warming alcohol, malt and bread. Similar taste, sweet with a dry finish and lingering chocolate and licorice.

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 ]
