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.

Jyrsa (307) - - NOV 20, 2015
Pours dark brown with strong light brown head. Malty aroma with hints of chocolate. Mouth has loads of roasted malt and some coffee. Bitter and not too sweet. Smooth palate and an after taste reminiscent of oyster stouts.

Ippopodio (112) - ITALY - NOV 18, 2015
Birra mogano dalla schiuma cappuccino abbondante con grana media. Al naso una discreta intensità di caffè torrefatto e cioccolato amaro. In bocca ritorna il tostato e il cacao ed il finale è quasi astringente.

Well balanced stout. On the nose some sweet chocolate, coffee and even tobacco.Little bitterness in the end separate this from the best stouts i have tasted. Still very good indeed!

RexTalionis (3307) - FINLAND - NOV 8, 2015
Bottle. Black in color with a tan head. Roasted coffee and dark chocolate in aroma. Quite smooth one. Same nice roasted coffee and nice cocoa notes in taste. Dry and chocolatey bitter finish. Tasty. Bit too roasted finish perhaps.

miquelcrush (1969) - Granollers, SPAIN - NOV 8, 2015
Cervesa molt correcte, on destaquen tocs torrats, pel meu gust és massa aigualida. Cerveza muy correcta, dónde destacan toques tostados, para mi gusto es demasiado aguada.

VastActiv (4537) - Oulu/Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 6, 2015
Tap at Pivo, Oulu. Colour is black with small white head. Aromas and flavours: Chocolate, some coffee and roasted malts. Actually this is quite soft. But I don’t get what "double" means in the name.

50 cl, bottled. Pours black with a decent tanned head. Aroma: Roasted malt, cocoa, fruits and vanilla. Taste: Medium sweet, grains, malty flavours. Bread. Palate: Near medium body, average carbonation. A bit thin, maybe. Not bad. Some noticeable bitterness, chocolate and bread in aftertaste.

TET (2338) - Kaarina, FINLAND - NOV 5, 2015
A black, a head is medium and beige. Aroma has roastiness of coffee, some liquirice, hint of metallic notes. Taste has strong roastiness, black coffee, some bitterness in the end. Almost medium bodied. Decent but I expected more. Roasted.
