COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

Bottle at home. Dark brown pour, thick dense creamy tan head that leaves lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, bready yeast, some dark fruits and caramel. Flavor is quite bitter and roasted, caramel, coffee, sweet chocolate and bread. Very full bodied and intense flavor. Very nice balance. Great brew.

Potente olor a chocolate, vainilla y café. En boca un toque más amargo, que recuerda al café. Agradable al paladar, suave y cremosa

Bottle from a trade with bierkoning, huge thanx!
Pours deep black with flat creamy head. Smell has lots of coffee, roasted malts and chocolate. Starts with sweet chocolate notes, paired with some milk sugar and vanilla. Middle part has coffee, milk sugar, vanilla and lots of sweet chocolate. Goes into a sweet chocolatey finish with much lactose, coffee and some roasted malts. Outstanding Stout!!!

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.

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.

Bottle from European Secret Santa, many thanks, MrHangover. Very dark brown colored beer with thick stable beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, cocoa beans, licorice, some fruitiness. Taste, roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, juniper, vanilla, citrus hops. Long light hoppy bitter finish. Alcohol is dangerously hidden. Tasty, unusual stout.
