DIBBLE (101) - Worthing, West Sussex, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2015
Roasty toasty malt aroma. Pouring produced a mighty fine lacey tanned head over pitch dark beer. Well carbonated. Mouthfeel is full, smooth and well balanced. Roasted malt flavours with some subtle licorice and chocolate angles, pleasant herbal hopped bitterness. Lingering thick malty finish. Good stuff.

Flaska @ Bishop Arms GA. Svart öl med ett beige lĺnglivat skum. Doft av choklad med lättare toner av rostat kaffe och vanilj. I smaken tillkommer en nötig beska. Torr munkänsla. .

Barva: tmavá,pěna hustá a držící. Vůně: příjemná chlebová a kávová. Chuť: nádherná kávová se stopou čokolády, parádně hořká.Dlouhý kávově chmelový dozvuk.

Uma Double Stout de tirar o chapéu!!! Saborosa, encorpada, amargor na medida. Deliciosa!!! Recomendo.

I was quite disappointed. Average quality, watery, although interesting taste. Could be stronger. It was quite a boring. What should you expect for bottle of beer, which claims to be "best" or "oldest" brewery on planet. Decent and drinkable, nothing more.

the aroma of caramel, chocolate and toast with hints of licorice, robust and some spices... the taste is caramel and chocolate with notes of toast, dark fruits, coffee and spicy herbs... the aftertaste is sweet, bitter and dry...

Clear dark ruby red, off-white foam head. Some mentol tones in aroma, does not smell like s stout, but surely taste like one. Bitter coffee tones, also in aftertaste. (Arnhem 201504)

Bottle. Pours pitch black with a mostly lasting light brown head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, dark fruits. Taste is more bitter chocolate, smokey, dark fruits, liquorice. Silky smooth oily mouthfeel. Very nice.

bottle 500 mL. pour in mug. black pitch color with medium tanned head, aroma are roasted coffee malts, chocolate and caramel, very nice. its taste are coffee, chocolate, caramel, nuts with a low-moderate bitterness, very nice, although its abv is quite low for a stout, so "double stout" aint accurate, maybe a porter... very tasty beer anyway, a new top pick for me
