Thumbing through her grandfather’s books, Dorothy came upon a recipe for a wonderful stout with intense roasted barley flavours and a dry, bitter finish.
Together with her friend Jimmy, our head brewer, she created this dark, full-bodied number. It boasts roasted coffee notes and plenty of hop flavour.

Not bad but it’s missing something.Creamy, longlasting headwith coffee flavor. This one doesn’t have a lot of body, also,it’s kinda of bitter at the end.

PapaVillum (439) - Valby, DENMARK - JUN 25, 2014
500 ml, flaske, 4,6 % ABV, julegave fra Robert - tak! 25. juni 2014. Ibenholt-farvet engelsk Stout med 1 cm moccafarvet skumtop, ikke tætskummende, ej heller entydigt storskummende. I næsen er der noter af brændt malt og lidt fjern chokolade. Smagen er typisk britisk-stout'sk med bitterhed og syrlighed. Smagsbilledet starter bittert, men slutter af med en anelse mere sødme sammenholdt med det bitre. Ikke oppe at ringe for undertegnede. Et medium indhold af kuldioxid. Eftersmagen tør og kort. Klart en Stout i den milde ende af alkoholskalaen, men smagen er alligevel tydelig.
