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.

TedE (1008) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 8, 2016
500ml bottle into pint glass. Dark opaque beer (backlit, it is actually deep mahogany) with frothy tan-coloured head. Aroma of iced coffee, chocolate and cocoa. Full-bodied and bitter in the mouth. The finish is much more coffee-bitter. Touches of burnt wood and aspirin late on. A very adult type of stout, good for winter nights and log fires.

Ratto (130) - - APR 5, 2016
Bottle bbe 10/2016. Aroma buttery. Taste strange combination of butter, fruity sourness and acrid roasted malt. Finishes with strong minty bitterness and some coffee, a bit unbalanced. Don't really know if I like it or not. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Distinctive coffee aroma and dissipating head greet with the pour. Relatively thin mouth feel and little follow through on the coffee. Hints of choc in the finish.

Gurthnar (5018) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAR 10, 2016
Bottle from Damian. Serious oxidized-like washing cloth aroma and flavour severely impairs the beer for me. Otherwise it is pretty dry and intensely roasty, but lacking some malty complexity. This is only plain ashy roast.

drjoeng (935) - SINGAPORE - MAR 5, 2016
5.2%ABV. Stout. Poured out black. 40ºSRM. 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!
