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.

MaartenRF10 (1639) - Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 16, 2013
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.

Idiosynkrasie (4369) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JAN 7, 2013
330ml bottle. Hazy dark brown colour with small to average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Minimally roasty and chocolately dark malty aroma with a decent fruity touch, blackberry. Taste is moderately sweet dark malty with an explicit blackberry note, later dry dark malty with a touch of fruit parings, some juniper.

sebletitje (7028) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 31, 2012
33cl bottle from Biernavigatie, bottled on 12/08/2011. Brune, col moka-café au lait. Arôme est agréablement malté-grillé avec une pointe de torréfié-café. Baies de genévrier apporte ici une belle dimension au bouquet.Alterne entre baies et café avec une pointe de vanille et une fine note d’amertume citronnée. Palais est assez épais, levure avec des baies de genévriers bien présentes sans pour cela dominer le tout. Le malt reste généreux laissant des pointes grillées-café-caramel avec la vanille arrivant juste en fin de bouche. Le tout est balancé par un apport houblonné légèrement amer. AU final, bonne bière mais manquant juste ce petit extra.

snzcujo (282) - RUSSIA - DEC 30, 2012
Tasted from the bottle, on 30/12/2012. Looks oily black with just a tiny head, which disappears quickly. Aroma is roasty/tart, not very intense. Taste is watery and tart as well, then with notes of roasted malts, biscuits and coffee in the end. Quite drinkable, but a bit too simple for its 9%abv, i would say. Neutral. Ps. After a few sips also could feel distinct booze character lingering the throat. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Theydon_Bois (10590) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2012
Bottle on the train from Edinburgh (Nina’s Mini Market) - 08/12/12. Opaque deep chestnut brown with a thin tan head that retains well. Nose is light roast malt, touch of hops and pine, hint of mint. Taste comprises roast malts, light vanilla, toffee, background hops and pine, a litte boozeyness. Fuller end of medium bodied, smooth on the palate, dry in the finish. Decent enough stout - the alcohol is well disguised.

sic1314 (4033) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - NOV 10, 2012
On cask in the Wildeman. Poured dark brown, no head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate and sweet malt. Medium body, doesn’t really taste the strength. Flavour of roast malt, vanilla coffee, dark chocolate. Nice lingering dry aftertaste.

CamdenD (1110) - Madrid, SPAIN - NOV 4, 2012
Very strong ’normal’ stout. The 9% comes through on the nose and the aftertaste. This is a sipper and not a drinker. Coffee comes out consistently. The juniper and other spices are present as well. A bit light on the tongue. Otherwise, strong.

Bottled (thanks Kim N!). Very deep brown colour with a small beige head. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee, some grass, chocolate and mild toffeeish notes. Flavour is roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, mild toffee, some juniper berries and mild vanillaish and wooden notes. Hides the alcohol rather well.
