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.

Flaska @ Bishops Arms GA, Malmö. Svart öl med ett kolossalt och långvarigt beigt skum. Dofter av rostad malt, kaffe och choklad. Smaker av desamma plus en nötighet. Torr avslutning, där en lätt sälta anas. Medel mot liten beska.

500ml bottle served in a snifter glass. A: Pours a dark brown to black color forming a big and creamy beige head with excellent retention and lots of soapy and lingering lacings left in the glass. S: Intense roastiness. Strong notes of dark chocolate, coffee beans, roasted malts, roasted almonds, dry plums. Flowery hops and earthy hints. T: Slightly sweet upfront that becomes quickly, quite dry and bitter. Strong notes of dark chocolate, coffee beans, roasted malts, roasted almonds, dry plums and grassy hops. Intense and persistent bitterness: excellent! M: Light to medium body. Medium carbonation. Dark chocolate and grassy hops in the aftertaste. O: Excellent drinkability. Excellent British Stout. Review #2001!

50cl bottle 7 months from expiration. Aroma of of light coffee, milk chocolate, vanilla and smooth roastiness. Pours pitch black with thin espresso-like head. Taste of roastiness, earthy, coffee and bit creamy mouthfeel but dry. Bit of hop bitterness on the backbone. After taste is coffee with dark chocolate. Palate is smooth medium carbonation. First mouthfeel is more creamy and finishes pretty dry. Very nice beer and very drinkable.

Una stout dal sapore forte di caffè. Ha un aspetto perfetto ed un gusto strepitoso. Ha un solo grande difetto: 5,2 gradi. Per renderla perfetta mancano 3/4 gradi alcolici

26.6.2014. Chocolate aroma with roasted malts. Taste has some british bitter style along with roasted malts and slight chocolate. Why it says double stout? It’s rather light and not a porter of my taste in general.

More to do with the style than the brewery. Just a bit burnt for me. Needs some oats and a bit more hop to make it interesting.
