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.

Grzesiek79 (3998) - Radom, POLAND - FEB 22, 2014
Swietne wytrawne dry stout. Gozkie, palone czekoladowo kawowe. Wszystko to mocno intensywnie i pachnace i zwlaszcza w smaku. Kolor czarny jak smola, oleiste i ciezkie. Tresciwe i bardzo wytrawne. Kremowa konsystencja brazowawej piany, ktora jest spora oblepia szklo i jest sztywna jak ubita piana na ciasto w mikserze. finisz bogaty i bardzo, bardzo dlugi wyrazisty i wytrawny. Nic prawie nie mozna zarzucic temu piwu. Do tego fajna elegandzka etykieta stylizowana na stare piwo. Arcy tradycyjne jest to piwo, godne poleceniu.

Oelbas (272) - DENMARK - DEC 13, 2013
Meget mørk brun, næsten sort med et holdbart lysebrunt skum. Duften er diskret med ristet og brændt malt, lidt syrlig og kaffe. Smagen er tør, bitter med kaffenoter og en lang eftersmag, hvor bitterheden efterhånden bliver mere dominerende. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
