A stout from Ramses bier brewed at the 3 Horne brewery. Brewed with biological coffee, vanilla, hopflowers, bog myrtle, juniper berry. SHIRE STOUT is een sterk, stoer doch elegant bier. Om de bierbewaarheid te ondersteunen is Gagel en Jeneverbes toegevoegd. Vanille en koffie complementeren de mout smaken. Door de bitterheid, het hoge alcohol percentage, en de bijzondere ingrediënten kan dit bier gracieus rijpen. Single hop UK Pilgrim Het 120 minuten continu toevoegen van deze Engelse hop draagt bij aan het exclusieve karakter van dit bier. Het is aangenaam kruidig met een toon van ceder en een vleugje citrus. Dry hop Het toevoegen van extra hop tijdens de lagering versterkt de hop geur en de hop smaak zonder het bier bitterder te maken.

Donker van kleur. Heel licht koffie smaakje met een frisse afdronk. Niet zo bitter in de mond. Vond hem niet bijzonder.

erickok (4464) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUL 2, 2013
Non-wood/barrel aged version, on tap. Good dark brown appearance with lasting head. Well hopped yet to give character to the cacao malt base. Some spices with the same cause, rather than bringing a spice bomb to you. For the abv the body isn’t the fullest, but it drinks very well and not too sweet. Zesty, original recipe, works well enough. (Tilburg Beer Festival)

77ships (6130) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUN 30, 2013
Sampled draught @ Tilburg Bierfestival 2013. Blackish, good sized tanned head. Nose is sweet liquorish, coffee, brown sugar, mocha and light roast. Taste is oily bitter syrup, molasses, sticky vines, reasonable amount of liquorish, sweet herbs, light roast. Oily & sticky body. Not what one would expect traditionally but quite enjoyable still.
