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.

It is a good stout. The carbonation is regular and the foam is strong and more white than the St-Peters cream stout. The taste is toasted coffee and bitter and the malt is present.

Shared bottle. Pours is dark with thick persistent creamy tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, hazelnuts, chocolate, toast, cereal, light fruity, light plums. Taste is medium bitter, light sweet, cofee mouthfeel. Light body, thick texture, long coffee bitter finish. Aroma was very promising but I was quite dissapointed by pretty mild taste and very watery palate. Overaly good, but not my cup of tea.

Piwo bardzo ciemne, praktycznie czarne. Piana jasno beżowa, dość obfita, bardzo ładnie zdobi szkło. Aromat likierowy, przywodzi na myśl portery, wyczuwalna czekolada i kawa zbożowa. W smaku konkretna goryczka, gorzka czekolada, kakao i odrobina kawy, finish palony.

Beerheart65 (1349) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 4, 2015
Clear dark brown/black, 2 finger brown creamy head, sticky lacing. Lots fo coffee and chocolate, medium roasted, bit ash, mocca. Light to medium body, roasted dry and bitter, soft carbonation, long roasted finish. Bit too dry roasted and bitter for my taste, lacks also nuances. Not bad but not more than ok either.

Bottle from Blackrock cellar. Pours deep black with tan creamy lasting head. Chocolate, roasted malt, burnt toast, nut, some dark berry on nose. Flavour follows nose with a dry burnt caramel finish. Quite dry finish. Pretty decent.

Pullo @ Alko. Kaatuu lasiin mustana, muhkealla noin kolmen sormen paksuisella ja hyvää pitsiä jättävällä vaahdolla. Tuoksussa on todella vahvaa paahteisuutta, joka kääntyy enemmän leipäiseen kuin kahviseen suuntaan. Yrttistä humalointia ja maitosuklaisuutta on myös selvästi joukossa, vaikka ne jäävätkin paahteen jalkoihin. Maussa taas kahvisuus ottaa vallan, yrttinen humalointi pyrkii tukemaan, mutta jää jalkoihin. Suklaatakin on hieman alkupuolella ennen kuin paahteisuus ottaa niskalenkin. Suutuntuma on kuiva ja keskitäyteläinen. Kuiva ja paahteinen, oppikirjamainen stout, mutta moniulotteisuutta puuttuu, jotta tästä nauttisi enemmän.

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 (134) - 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.
