4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A crackin’ stout, really smooth and has loads of roast malt on the nose (coffee there too) and palate. It’s typically dark with an off white head which isn’t that thick but lasts well and leaves a good lace. The long finish has a slight bitterness but thats well balanced by the richness of the malt. I loved this! Asda.

From bottle. Sweet liquor, chocolate coffee aroma. Fantastic deep black appearance. Frothy stainded head. Great smooth charred coffee taste. Great texture like silk. However a slight bitter after taste. Great stout but would have liked it to have a better finish through to the end.

Aroma comes off as grassy hops but as it warms goes into chocolate and toasty flavours. Taste is more chocolate but the hops are still present, better balanced than more stouts iv had this year and possibly the best rating of a stout so far because of that.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Brown highlighted black with a dense cap of tan. Deep char aroma, sort of along the lines of flaming marshmellow. A little overbearing at first, but it softens and there is a creaminess there too. Chewy, slighty tart coffee flavor. Sort of a thin palate. It’s cool that this is a revival of an old recipe, and I love to see Hooky tapping into their rich history for inspiration. But good stories aside, the stout is not a standout.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Toffee and booze-scented stout with a firm roasty bitterness, smoky coffeeish notes, and a teasing creaminess. Not to mention the marmite-on-toast. Oh yes. Reddish-black body with filthy yellowish froth and an unusual transparency (for a stout). But who’s looking? It’s already disappeared. Very nicely rounded stout, thankyou very much.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours dark rown with thick brown head. Aroma of coffee, caramel, some sweet berries and a touch of liquorice. Taste is full, roasted, coffee and the dryness of hops and caramel - very nice. Refreshing and full.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Lovely - not extreme strong but strong enough - coffee and chocolate aroma with black currant. Deep brown color, small light brown head, very nice lace. Flavors are good, of course coffee and chocolate and nice roasted malt bitterness. But the name double stout triggers a feeling that isn’t there. The palate is quite weak and even sparkling. What a pitty. But still a nice beer.

Øl (50 cl) købt på arbejdet.
Alm stout uden specielle nuancer. Er dog ikke så brændt i smagen, og der er en mystisk nugat/humle duft over den.
Den er overraskende humlet af en stout at være.
