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 ingrediŽnten 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.

(draught) pours black in colour with a creamy beige head. aroma of sweatsocks, roasted malts and grass, with a hint of strawberries, earth and brown sugar. flavour is mostly the same, though slightly husky, with a hint of alcohol, dark chocolate and a light tartness in the light roasted-bitter finish. medium-bodied with soft carbonation.

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 isnít the fullest, but it drinks very well and not too sweet. Zesty, original recipe, works well enough. (Tilburg Beer Festival)

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.

Draught at Tilburg Bierfestival 2013. Black beer with a beige head. Roasted chocolate aroma, caramel, licorice, some metal. Chocolate flavor, fruity, caramel, a bit strange and not really good.

Bottled shared at home - cheers Steven! Pours lively! Big white head on a dark brown beer, doesnít last. Aroma has faint wood and whisky, some roasted notes. Tastes like a Belgian take on stout, more spirits, slightly medicinal, minty even. Finishes a bit thin for the strength. OK. Too fizzy and a bit confused.

Tap at the Den Haag festival 2013. Poured a dark mahogany with a frothy tan head. The aroma is roasted malt and some yeast in the background. The flavour is medium bitter, citrus zesty, yeasty and with some liqourice too.

Mooie donkere kleur. Leuk flesje. Het aroma is heerlijk. Dit vind ik meestal minder bij een stout maar bij deze is het super. Romig mondgevoel. Smaak is iets bitter, geroosterde mout maar erg subtiel. Nasmaak is heel zacht. Fijne nasmaak.

330ml bottle (shared by FatPhil, thanks). Dark mahogany color. Medium size brown head appears and stays for a while. Dusty, roast, dark fruits in aroma. Smooth and milky texture. Sweet, roast and coffee also in flavor. Very drinkable.

330ml bottle (Bacchanalia, Cambridge)
Rich aroma, some slightly sweet tart dark berry fruitiness, but a good roast too. Super dark ruby red, nice sticky tight beige head. Lovely full smooth palate, gentle carbonation is nice. Great dark roast in the retronasals, turns into stale coffee grounds, but not bitter.Finish is back to a more black-malt roastiness rather than coffee. Tart berries there too still. Very nice stout.

Dark brown. almost black, light beige head. Strong, but rather boring stout, with some coffe, roasted malts and hops. No chocolate, vanilla or juniper berries detectable. Ok body and carbo.
