COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Double je tmavý speciál typu Porter. Je výzvou pro všechny smysly každému, kdo umí vychutnat něco neobvyklého a zajímavého. Čtyřiadvaceti procenty původního extraktu a 10,5% alkoholu je Double nejsilnějším českým pivem od roku 1990 a jedním z nejsilnějších v Evropě. Bedlivě střežený poměr surovin (5 druhů sladů – český, bavorský, karamelový, barvící a pšeničný) dává základ jedinečné chuti, ve které dominují pražené slady. Vysoký obsah čistého extraktu, který žaludek okamžitě zpracovává, může vyvolat gejzír energie a navnadit smysly. Proto jej doporučujeme jako „pivní aperitiv“. Často bývá označován jako tzv. „černá viagra“. Antracitově sytě tmavý mok s krémovou pěnou vynikne ve vysoké sklenici na nožce, která vyzdvihne tento jedinečný šperk náchodského pivovaru. Dokonalý průvodce dezertů, zákusků se paradoxně hodí i k pálivým jídlům. Je to gurmánské pohlazení pro vaše chuťové pohárky.
Beer with distinct and sweet taste of malt aroma gradating into smooth bitterness.

500ml bottle poured into a dimpled mug. PST pours dark brown with a creamy head. It is a very attractive beer. The nose is very mild with sweet prunes and light alcohol being dominate. The flavors are strong and pleasing. Apricot, prune, alcohol, and light pine nuts can be detected. The finish is thick and syrupy and won’t let you forget about this beer anytime soon. This would make a good after-dinner beer and winter warmer.

luttonm (6274) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 24, 2010
,5L bottle from Rare Beers in Budapest. Well loved bottle that gushses a brown Soda with screaming tan, foamy, effervescent head. Nose is metallic salts and sugar, a bit industrial but intriguing. Sip is a wall of popping alcohol sweetness and the little bit that is left of the body. The flavor is so concentrated in the start of each sip, intensely sweet and a bit sour. Mellows a bit and the rest relies on a bulked up malting package. This is an explosion in the bottle, especially considering the ABVs around. A great find but it is far from refined .. but that is ok, I love these huge surprises every now and again. A bit bonkers this one, i’ll be sucking on sweet-sour-alc malt from the corners of my mouth for a week, but definitely worth it.

hopscotch (11101) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 19, 2010
Bottle... Clear, dark ruby lager with a small, creamy, off-white head. Good retention. The nose is nutty, vinous and biscuity with traces of Russian black bread and vegetal avocado. Full-bodied and oily with delicate carbonation. Very sweet with nutty and crusted port-like nuances. Finishes sweet, then soothingly boozy and bitter. Warming, for sure

It is what it is...a somewhat watery double bock style from Eastern Europe. Hits it when it hits, or needs to.

DYCSoccer17 (3698) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 2, 2010
500mL bottle purchased at the Davis Food Co-Op. Aroma is spicy, lightly sweet, with some molasses notes. Lightly ethanolic. Transparent ruby-mahogany body with a small light tan head that is rather quickly dissipating. Weak lacing. Wow...this is incredibly sugary and sweet. Holy shit. Underattenuated mess. Light cocoa and roasted notes, but the pure cane sugar that dominates this thing is fucking ridiculous.

Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 17, 2010
Bottle. Pours dark brown with a 2 finger off-white head. The nose is dark fruits and caramelized brown sugar. Taste is pancake syrup with Everclear added. Brutally sweet hot mess. Drain pour.

3.7
PorterPounder (7970) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 17, 2010
Savannah, Ga. - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - 500 ml bottle. Very dark, almost black pour with a quickly dissipating off-white head. Sweet aroma reminiscent of dates and molasses. Sweetness carries over to the flavor with some light underlying chocolate, molasses and prunes. Nice stick to your ribs flavor - would be great in the winter. Thickish, rich mouthfeel - 10.5 ABV hidden extremely well. Impressed - did not expect when looking at the budget brand label.

2.5
Zaprozdower (66) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - MAR 21, 2010
Pours a very dark brown and a small creme, head. Aroma is quite strong with notes of raisin and caramel. Has a thin body with a very obvious presence of alcohol at first sip. Flavor is extremely sweet with no discernible attempt at balance. A good beer at first, but is a challenge to down a half liter because of how cloying it is. Does unfortunately remind me a bit of steel reserve.
