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.

The beer has the perfect stout looks. The color of the beer is pitch black on the eye. With a strong light behind it, a truly astonishing ruby/cherry red color can be seen. The beer looks quite clear, but it is so dark that it is hard to determine. The beer pours a minimal layer of dark foam with a color of roasted almonds. The smell is typical for a stout. It has some delicious aromas of roasted barley, coffee and some sweet chocolate. The smell is a little mild rough. It could have had a bit more bitter tones of roasted barley and smoked oak. Those aromas are present, but just not strong enough. The smell also had a soft sweet aroma, of some red forest fruits. This is quite a nice touch. The taste of the beer is delicious to. This is a little stronger than the smell, it has a bit more kick. The beer has a delicious roasty smoky bitterness to it. There is also a nice alcohol flavor to it. The flavor has a delicious strong bitterness to it. This gives the beer a real stout flavor. It also has some sweet chocolate and some coffee. The balance is nice. It is a good stout, but not the best one around.

Lore (1900) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 24, 2016
dark brown colour, moderate sized brown head; aroma and taste of coffee, some herbs, hints of vanilla, ash and intensive roastedness; not bad, but a bit one-dimensional (mainly dominated by roasted bitterness with only minimal other notes)

sjorsvdg (328) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 19, 2016
Een lekkere imperial stout, die een prima balans tussen bitter en zoet in zich heeft. Aroma van hout en koffie. In het smaakpalet zitten daarnaast pure chocolade, pruimedant. Droog bier zonder schuim.
