This magnificent example of a classic double stout delivers a velvety-smooth palate of dry, burnt flavours - complemented by roast, cocoa and coffee notes. Black, creamy and delicious; it is a Shepherd Neame masterpiece.

rami_pl (277) - Warszawa, POLAND - FEB 12, 2015
Butelka, Pod Mosteczkiem. Piana przy agresywnym nalaniu ladna, ale szybko opadajaca, ladnie zostaje na szkle. Bardzo ciemne, wlasciwie zupelnie nieprzejrzyste. Aromat glownie palonych slodow, troche kawowych nut, przy czym taka kawa ginie w palonosci. W smaku tez palonosc gra dominujaca role, choc - zaleznie od temperatury, pojawiaja sie rozne dodatki - kawa, czekolada, kakao, czasami jakies takie taninowo-drewniane nuty. Bardzo wytrawne, dosc gladkie w teksturze. Historyjka z kontretykiety (300 letnia, odnaleziona receptura) brzmi przy takim jego aromacie i smaku zaskakujaco realnie a nie marketingowo, Goryczki chmielowej w sumie malo, albo po prostu ginie we wszechogarniajacej palonosci. Piwo niewatpliwie jednowymiarowe, ale... ma to swoj urok. Dla fanow food-pairingu - ni cholery nie pasuje do panierki na schabowym ;)

adasko (787) - Poznan, POLAND - FEB 8, 2015
Aromat czekoladowy, palone słody, delikatnie popiołowy, niezbyt intensywny. Piwo czarne, nieprzejrzyste. Mało obfita piana, szybko opada, świetny lacing. Piwo za bardzo nasycone i wodniste, brakuje troszkę ciała. Bardzo wytrawne, nie ma w nim w ogóle słodyczy. W smaku dość pusto, troszkę kawowo. W posmaku kawowa kwaskowość. Ogólnie jest troszkę nijakie, bez wyrazu.

Poured from a .5 l bottle into a pint glass. Aromas of malt and burnt coffee. Pours a classic black stout color with a tan head, not too thick. Burnt malt taste, smoky without any balancing sweet or smoothness, coffee and dirt tastes. Some full body, creamy texture with soft carbonation, and a burnt long finish. Not a masterpiece in my book.

der_andreas (3) - Munich, Bavaria, GERMANY - JAN 31, 2015 does not count
Samtig, elegant, kerning und schokoladig und mit Kaffeenoten, so ist der erste Antrunk. Der Schaum könnte stabiler, auch der Geschmack könnte intensiver sein. Dennoch ein super Biier, dass sehr gut und süffig ist!

hohops (463) - Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2015
Appearance is almost jet black with a one finger fizzy beige head. Aroma- coffee, cocoa, toffee hints, dark malts. Taste- lots of coffee and dark chocolate, roasty, fairly sweet- toffee and caramel, but then a bitter hoppy finish. Nice fluffy mouthfeel. Very good.

Fisler (125) - GERMANY - JAN 25, 2015
Schön dunkel im Glas, fluffiger Schaum, etwas untypisch für ein Stout. In der Nase Kaffee. Im Trunk sehr schwach, wenig Kaffee, trocken im Abgang. In meinem Verständnis kein Double Stout. Zu wenig Aroma, zu wenig Geschmack.

Milter (241) - Nyborg, DENMARK - JAN 22, 2015
Bottle, 500 ml. A decent stout, coffee is clearly present. Aroma could be more complex, dominated by coffee. Lively and interesting palate.

vidmidia (54) - Vila Velha, BRAZIL - JAN 15, 2015
Opaca, marrom escura, com espuma âmbar média de curta duraçăo. Aroma e sabor de café, amadeirado, levemente defumado, com notas de chocolate. Sabor amargo com ligeiro adocicado e leve acidez. Retrogosto amargo, um pouco ácido de longa duraçăo.
