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.

Mustaa, niukkaasti vaahtoavaa. Stouttimainen tummahko tuoksu, liukas, raikas, paahteinen suuntuntuma, maltainen, kuivahko. Liukkaahko jälkimaku, kuiva. Stoutiksi sata kertaa parempaa kuin se perus Guinnes.

Ottimo il profumo. La tostatura è persistente piacevole perché non eccessiva. Buono il retrogusto. Nell’insieme è completa in tutte le sue componenti.
