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.

Near black colour, thick light tan head; roast, cream, black toffee, raisins aroma; very sweet/bitterish taste with black toffee, caramel, chocolate, dates and coffee aromas; bitter finish with liquorice, treacle, black toffee, raisins and coffee aromas. A wonderfully rich and malty beer, which is big and bold in a quite un-lagery way. The label proclaims it as "tmavý porter" or dark porter. I’m not sure that’s what it is, but who gives a fig - it’s still a great beer. Well worth seeking out.

This is an extremely sweet beer with minimal hops. It’s very smooth and extremely sugary. I would buy it again if I wanted a non hopped drink.

Primator Double Bock, 16.9floz/500ml bottle into a Samuel Adams glass; served cold. Aroma: Malty, boozy. Chocolate and caramel. Sherry. Appearance: Near opaque dark ruby body with a creamy, tan head. Taste: Oooooooooooh yeah, good and boozy; there’s no subtlety here. Tastes like a nice oloroso sherry. So much caramel flavor. It’s almost identical to Samichlaus, but more malty and less sweet. Palate: So rich and smooth. A nice warming, boozy finish. Overall: At work I have walked right by this beer for months. SO MUCH WASTED TIME. This is a truly fantastic doppelbock.

Pours a dark clear very beautiful amber color with a thick creamy nice of white head with amazing lacing. Aroma is fresh pruns And some figs and dark fruits and red candy licorice and a hint of alcohol. Taste follows the aroma with some hints of oak bourbon barrels and chocolate cherries and a touch of charred malts and smokyness extremely smooth and a bit creamy and complex. This is a very delicious brew. On the sweeter side but very nice. Reminds me of a complex bourbon barrel aged stout with a lot of complexity.

My favourite beer, very sweet and strong. I dont like beer in that traditional way, so I am fan of dark strong sweet beers. This one has only one small negative and it is sweetness, could be a bit lower.

Cinnamon-hued brown with finely-beaded mocha fondant foam. Mouthwqtering Toffee, plum/prune, dough, pouncake, and Twinkies aroma. Sweet but not cloying… rich, rich malt flavor… hints of cocoa and kirsch, tobacco, and (drool) tawny port. Abv is gently warming and tingly on yhe tongue. Mild bitterness remains in the background. Although full and sticky, the palate befits the beer’s heft. OMFG. World class.

This is a very sweet beer with a mild amount of bitterness. It is a very good beer overall if you are not drinking it to get drunk. It is very sweet, and i am not usually fond of sweet beers but this one is actually very good due to how much taste and depth it has. I suggest it paired with something bitter to complement its sweetness, like a strong cheese pairing. Also, I would note, i dont suggest drinking two, again its very sweet and heavy!

Strong, malty aroma has an overtone of caramel and hints of horehound and apple. It pours a barely translucent dark coppery brown with a fairly thick, if not too persistent, light tan head. Mouth-filling malty flavor has a strong caramel overtone and is rather sweet but not cloying. I get hints of apple, hops, and - is that butterscotch? The subtle bitterness offsets the sweetness somewhat. Full-bodied texture has a fairly strong and persistent fizz that leaves a tingly, sweet, subtly hoppy-bitter finish. If you like bocks, I heartily recommend this one.
