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.

olio (8201) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 19, 2015
33 cl bottle.
Pours dark brown, almost black color with a small off-white head. Kind of syrupy sweet aroma, roasty notes, malts and some hop notes. Low carbonation, grainy flavor with some rye and dark malts, hints of dark chocolate, some very mild vegetable notes on the background disturb a bit. A bit weird Stout.

Bottle, thanks hermod! Black, thin top. Roasty, roasted barley, ashy, but bit weak intensity on nose. Med bodied, bitter, quite easy, feels quite light for the abv. Some herbs, green hops. Wouldve said a dry porter on 5. Goes easy.

TaxiDriver (1572) - Stadland, GERMANY - MAY 10, 2015
Bottle. A malty aroma, roasted malt, some chocolate, soft alcoholic and sour. The head is very large, beige and foamy with a long duration. The body is black. A malty taste, light bitter chocolate, a weak alcoholic taste. The body is rather medium strong, creamy and light dry with a lively carbonation.

Bijna zwarte chocolade bruine kleur met een volle kraag. Ruikt chocolade, alcohol, hout, beetje vanille. Smaakt koffie, chocolade, alcohol. Iets bitter. Smaakt wat zwaar.
