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.

0,5L bottle nice black colored beer. Tan head disappears soon. Aroma liqourish, bitter, burning tyres. Some interesting bitter taste what i can’t remember at the moment, but it’s similar to strong esspresso, also dark bread, bitter chocolate. Some notes of water but it dosen’t disturb at all. Medium body and carbonisation is okey. when it warms up it goes sweeter. In my oppinion 0.33L bottle would make it more better.

Moravius (572) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 11, 2014
Flasche (50 cl) von Bierlieb, Berlin. - Pechschwarz, sortentypisch bescheidene Schaumbildung. - In der Nase bitterer Kakao, vage dunkle Frucht, etwas säuerlich. - Antrunk sehr schlank, fast dünn aber kräftig röstig-bitter mit Bitterkakao, Mokka, etwas Vanille. Kaum süß; feine fruchtige Säure. Sehr dünner Körper. Abgang trocken mit viel Röstmalzbittere, einem Hauch von Holzkohle und leicht erdig-holzigem englischen Hopfen, aber nicht allzu viel davon. - Sehr schlankes, röstmalzbetontes Stout. Süffig und voller Aromen, trotz seiner Dünne.

MrHangover (2664) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 5, 2014
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown beer with a medium sized, tanned head on top. Aroma of chocolate, light roasty characters, coffee and molasses. Flavor is medium bitter, loads of coffee again with bitter chocolate touches. Nice, full bodied stout with a great drinkablitly and a nice easy going mouthfeel. Light bitter aftertaste. Very nice!

JonnyConga (101) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2014
Bottle at home. Roasty aroma. Tastes of coffee, burnt roastiness and a dryish slightly bitter finish. I think I'm more of a sweet stout sort of person, this is tasty but perhaps a little burnt for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
