5.2%ABV. Stout. Poured out black. 40şSRM. Nose is sweet with some medicinal aromas. There is a hint of sweet smokiness reminiscent of burnt straw. Stewed fruit and ripe dark fruits and sweet stone fruits in the nose. Brandied cherries. Mouthfeel is soapy and thin. The palate has burnt toast, deep roasted barley malt, Not much sweet in the palate which is very very nice. Dry with ume like herbal preserved fruitiness. The palate is dominated by dry oaky dusty and dry oak leaf flavors. There is a nice bold bitter middle-end to the palate. The bitter is English bitters, sweet charcoal. Finish is woody and dry. Good clean charcoal and ume finish. Goes on Favorites List!

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2016 Pours dark brown color with 1 finger tall creamy hazel head with good retention. Smells coffee, dark bread crust, dark chocolate. The taste is quite faint. Some sourness, some bitterness. Full-bodied, perfect carbonation. I would put overall 14, but the smell is really good.

Biroholik (718) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - FEB 12, 2016
Kolor : Czarny. Nieprzejrzysty.
Piana: Kawowy kolor. Tworzy zwartą strukturę drobnych oczek. Wysoka, czapowata. Do ostatniego łyka pozostaje na szkle. Lacing prawidłowy.
Zapach : Mocna kawa espresso. Aromat ciemnych słodów . Lekko zbożowy. Mleczna czekolada.
Smak: Bardzo mocno kawowy. Double stout to double espresso. Aromat kawy jest bardzo przyjemny. Goryczka ma również kawowy charakter. Jest lekko zalegająca ale wciąż przyjemna. Piwo jest dość gęste, treściwe i wytrawne.
Wysycenie: Niskie.
Podsumowanie:
Shepherd Neame uważany jest za najstarszy browar w Wielkiej Brytani. Browar powstał już w 1698 roku! Miałem okazje spróbować prawie wszystkich jego obecniedostępnych piw. Double Stout to świetny angielski Dry Stout. Piwo można kupić w angielskiej sieci marketów Asda w cenie Ł1,5. Cena jest bardzo przystępna biorąc pod uwagę że Fosters, Stella lub Heineken są w podbnej cenie;) Piwo o wyraźnym smaku i aromacie czekoladowo-kawowym z przyjemną goryczką. Warte spróbowania.
