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.

500ml dark bottle from Morrisons. Retro label. I do like the retro beers that some of the older breweries are doing. They are not authentic recreations - these are older recipes brewed on modern equipment, with modern ingredients and yeasts, and in a modern style, but I like the idea. This, of course, doesn’t taste any different from any modern stout brewed at around this strength. The thing with stouts is that like espresso coffee, the ingredients and recipe tend to make beers that don’t leave much room for individuality or character. This is a typical roasted malts dark beer. All the flavours and mouthfeel that you’d expect are here - like drinking raspberry jam on burnt toast. Lovely.

Biroholik (227) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - FEB 12, 2016
Kolor : Czarny. Nieprzejrzysty.
Piana: Kawowy kolor. Tworzy zwartą strukturę drobnych oczek. Wysoka, czapowata. Do ostatniego łyka pozostaje na szkle. Lacing prawidłowy.
Zapach : Mocna kawa espresso. Aromat ciemnych słodów . Lekko zbożowy. Mleczna czekolada.
Smak: Bardzo mocno kawowy. Double stout to double espresso. Aromat kawy jest bardzo przyjemny. Goryczka ma również kawowy charakter. Jest lekko zalegająca ale wciąż przyjemna. Piwo jest dość gęste, treściwe i wytrawne.
Wysycenie: Niskie.
Shepherd Neame uważany jest za najstarszy browar w Wielkiej Brytani. Browar powstał już w 1698 roku! Miałem okazje spróbować prawie wszystkich jego obecniedostępnych piw. Double Stout to świetny angielski Dry Stout. Piwo można kupić w angielskiej sieci marketów Asda w cenie £1,5. Cena jest bardzo przystępna biorąc pod uwagę że Fosters, Stella lub Heineken są w podbnej cenie;) Piwo o wyraźnym smaku i aromacie czekoladowo-kawowym z przyjemną goryczką. Warte spróbowania.

Bottle. Almost black beer. Aroma of coffee, toast and dark chocolate. Taste is of roasted malts and coffee. Medium bodied and a bit too carbonated. The end is very coffee bitter.

Bottiglia 500 ml. Marrone scuro con bellissimo cappello di schiuma beige persistente. Aroma di caffè, malto tostato, cioccolato. In bocca malto tostato, caffè, sentori di liquirizia, finale asciutto e amaro. Allaccio al bicchiere, corpo medio, bassa carbonazione. Squisita!

Pours black colour with small brown head. Beautiful smell of coffee and chocolate. Surprisingly high carbonation for a stout. Mouthfeel is a bit light at first but it turns into creamy soon enough. Taste is mostly burnt, roasted coffee with a very bitter and dry finish. Overall, quality stout and well worth a try but I’m a bit disappointed with it lacking some flavour other then burnt. Not for everyone.

Keskiverto Stout. Tavallinen Shepherd neamen maku. Vähän outo. Ei niin hyvä kuin voisi.

500ml bottle from Ken Warne grocery store, Darlington. Black colour, beige foam head leaving some lacing and aroma of ash, coffee, roast malt, dark chocolate. Taste is smokey, roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, dark fruits, liquorice and lingering bitterness. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry roasted dark chocolate bitter finish. Quite drinkable.

Pours an opaque black colour with a disappointingly thin tan head that dissipates quickly. The aroma is of caramel, burnt toffee and roasted malt. The flavour is similar with a slight hint of coffee. Overall and excellent stout, possibly the best English stout I have tried.
