COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled; Special - Past Masters series.
Note: Prior to the official release in bottle of Past Masters Double Stout in 2011, the beer was available as a special at several beer festivals but was badged as Fuller’s Imperial Stout. It has not been available in cask format, or under this name since the bottle release. The 10.7% Fullers Imperial Stout released in 2013 is an entirely different beer.

Double Stout is the second in the series, brewed to a recipe from 4th August 1893 – a time when ’stout’ meant ’strong’. Its signature ingredient is Plumage Archer barley, carefully malted and kilned using 19th Century methods. Dark, brown and creamy this beer is brewed to 7.4% ABV and balances a rich fruity aroma with smoky, bittersweet chocolate notes.

Grainy smooth nose. The beer starts fresh malty. Nice fresh hopped, malty with a nice bitterness. Round and refreshing with a nice malty bitter aftertaste. Nice.

500ml bottle, 2011, courtesy of tashi, drunk 16th June 2011. Deep brown with a tan head. Smoky, roasted nose and a similar flavour. Hints of dark chocolate, liquorice and coffee. Very smooth, alcohol very well hidden. Very easy to drink. I really enjoyed this. Perfect strong sipping stout.

Bottle @ home. Aged 4 years. Dark brown to black color, beige head. It has developed a nice moderate vinous sweetness. Aroma of plums, raisins chocolate, toffee, honey, some coffee, warming alcohol, malt and bread. Similar taste, sweet with a dry finish and lingering chocolate and licorice.

MarkoNm (2874) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - FEB 10, 2015
Rating for the past, completely forgot about it. Poured a deep black color, topped with a rather small tan colored head. Roasted aroma, some notes of coffee and chocolate also in there. Malty and chocolate taste, coffee and bitterness in the body and finish. A fine one.
