COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Double je tmavý speciál typu Porter. Je výzvou pro všechny smysly každému, kdo umí vychutnat něco neobvyklého a zajímavého. Čtyřiadvaceti procenty původního extraktu a 10,5% alkoholu je Double nejsilnějším českým pivem od roku 1990 a jedním z nejsilnějších v Evropě. Bedlivě střežený poměr surovin (5 druhů sladů – český, bavorský, karamelový, barvící a pšeničný) dává základ jedinečné chuti, ve které dominují pražené slady. Vysoký obsah čistého extraktu, který žaludek okamžitě zpracovává, může vyvolat gejzír energie a navnadit smysly. Proto jej doporučujeme jako „pivní aperitiv“. Často bývá označován jako tzv. „černá viagra“. Antracitově sytě tmavý mok s krémovou pěnou vynikne ve vysoké sklenici na nožce, která vyzdvihne tento jedinečný šperk náchodského pivovaru. Dokonalý průvodce dezertů, zákusků se paradoxně hodí i k pálivým jídlům. Je to gurmánské pohlazení pro vaše chuťové pohárky.
Beer with distinct and sweet taste of malt aroma gradating into smooth bitterness.

Douberd (4825) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - SEP 18, 2016
(Primátor Double 24° (Specialni Tmavé)) Bottle 500ml at my home in Parga, Greece. ABV 10.5% Brown coloured body, clear, with a good sized, thick, tan head on top, low retention. The aroma has caramel, dark fruits, marmalade. Very sweet taste with stewed red fruits, plums, dark fruits, well hidden alcohol. Medium thick bod, soft carbonation, sticky palate. Good and easy to drink in spite of its high alcohol and the high midday temperatures.

Winey aroma, plum juice. Tastes of prune juice. Nice and dark, but a bit flat. Palate flat, a bit heavy, it’s sweet and sticky. A nice berry drink, but where’s the beer? Finish has bitter dry hops. Crazily sweet, but I do like it - yum!

koshack (1335) - Gdańsk, POLAND - SEP 7, 2016
Aromat przyjemny. Mocny, owocowy, zapowiada moc alkoholu. Potem lekka nuta kwaskowa, lekka paloność, ciemne sody. Jest trochę nut pumpernikla. W smaku słodkie, zaklejające. Ale pozostawia przyjemny goryczkowy posmak. Lekko idzie w stronę barley wine. Bardzo pełne w odczuciu. Co ciekawe na etykiecie opisany jako "ciemny porter". Niezłe, ale trochę jednowymiarowe.

kamil3ds (27) - POLAND - SEP 6, 2016
Bardzo słodkie, gęste piwo z niewielką goryczką. Dla mnie bardzo pijalne, alkohol dobrze ułożony. Odjąłem za aromat, jest słaby i głównie palonego słodu.

Evilman (121) - Taverny, FRANCE - AUG 19, 2016
A little bit of a failure of my own with this one. We bought it with friends during a trip in Czech republic, interested by the quite high alcohol level for a czech beer, but we didn’t know what to really expect and we drank this at warm temperature. Not the good way to appreciate it, for sure. Taste is very caramelized, much sugar, I usually really like this kind of beers, it is similar to Gouden Carolus Classic or Bush de Noel to picture the thing, so it’s better to drink these a bit cold considering the quite strong taste. Result was mixed for us, a bit too much soda-ish, but that’s just because we drank it warm. We didn’t had the opportunity to get more, so... Next time will be better. Still recommended for strong beers amateurs. APPROVED BY TAVERNY’S BLACK METAL CREW!

Iznogud (2500) - CROATIA - AUG 18, 2016
Bottle, 500 ml, courtesy of JFK10000. Shared with him and Miro. Pours dark brown with beige head. Bit of alcohol in aroma. Roasted, caramel malts, some dried fruit, but lots of brown sugar. Extremely sweet. Too much sugar for me.

hrabren (920) - Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 6, 2016
Tasting at Ljubljana Beer and Whiskey Festival 2015. Shared with Dinko, Mišo and Shotgun Fred. Brown with orange tint, small head. Malts, toffee and raisins in the aroma, alcohol present there. Very sweet and sugary. Mouth-clenching from sweetness, but quite drinkable for a Doppelbock. Good, but to sweet.

Gerwazy (42) - Legnica, POLAND - AUG 6, 2016
Aroma: very strong malty aroma. Also plum, sweet cherry and some roasted notes. No alcohol, which is quite unexpectable. Liqueur. Apperance: brown, with rubby reflex. Clear, with almost no head. Taste: sweet, very sweet. Taste like not fermented wort. But this beer have his enchantment. Palate: full body, oily and creamy structure, low carbonation. Overall: because of ABV, sweetnes and texture beer looks/taste like liqueur. Diffrent but nice. Not my style at all.
