Prince of Denmark is a strong, dark beer of great complexity and depth. It is based on traditional recipes from the 18th Century but has also been described as an ’Imperial Stout Nouveau’. Brown, amber and black malts are mixed with pale ale malts to give this beer its strong aroma and colouring.

A complex beer with aromas of leather, chocolate and liquorice, with a lingering taste.

275ml bottle from The Sussex Produce Company, Steyning. Fermented aroma of yeast, malt, toffee and alcohol. Pours an oily black beer with a thin brown lacey head. Mouthfeel is thick and full of flavour. Sweet brown sugar, treacle, coffee, caramel, dark roasted malt, licorice, presence of alcohol masked to a degree by herbal bitterness.

StueyD (1438) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2014
A black beer with a latte coloured head. A potent aroma of burnt malt elements, nutty, chocolatey, espresso coffee, ripe red fruits and raisiny dried fruit. Rich and full mouthfeel. The taste continues in the same vein as the aroma, mouth-filling dark malt flavours, bitter chocolate, coffee, nutty, then the fruits come through to add a slightly smoother sweetness. The finish is long, lingering and has all the elements from the taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
