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.

At the end of the glass it is a good friend, but there is a journey until it's softer tones appear. First sip shows cholate and lots of bitterness. It it is really bitter, some berries, lots of malts. It is a little sour, but grows more sweet. A really nice strong ris. ---Rated via Beer Buddy (iOs)

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.

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!!!

Hamirubi (547) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - MAY 26, 2016
33cl bottle at De Vlaamsche Reus, at Wageningen in the Netherlands (26 V 2016). 8.5 ABV, 66 EBU, 122 EBC, in a perfect imperial combo. A black tanned brew with red brown gloom and big white to beige head. The nose is rather fruity with grapes, berries, winegums and other candies. The taste has keen coffee flavours and of course the traditional sugary sweets, yet also a hoppy bitterness and mild fondant chocolate body. This results in a not that heavy, yet very long lasting chocolate-like bitter brew. Great job!

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.
