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.

0.5l bottle. Rocky brown head, deep dark color. Aroma of brown sugar, heavy sweet caramel flavor. Full body, alcoholic kick. Not for ordinary drinking.

This beer needs some serious balancing. The flavor was intense but not quite right. Apparent brown sugar, caramel/molasses, and a definite alcohol kick. Fleeting head although it did produce quite an aroma. Smell definitely set me up for disappointment when the taste didn’t back it up. Overall, disappointed with the beer and actually poured out about 1/4 of it.

bsp77 (724) - Minnesota, USA - OCT 30, 2009
Extremely dark brown with a garnet hue. Very small head formed initially but then fled. Very, very sweet smelling, with brown sugar, figs, plum, caramel and a big blast of alcohol. Starts off with a sweet mix of plum, rum and caramel, and then turns even sweeter, with notes of fig, syrup and whatever you can imagine that is ridiculously sweet. No evidence of hops whatsoever. Low carbonation, full syrupy body that is somewhat cloying. Overall, it certainly is a shot of flavor, but needs some serious balance. Not very often that a lack of balance means a lack of hops.

Bottle from the Albert hypermarket in Chodov, Prague I guess, shared with heavy.
Hmm poured a deep red going black body with a small-medium beige head. Oily malty nose, sweet, dried figs, maybe a little alcohol, roasty. Eh. A very sweet, sugary almost taste ending with oily alcohol, reminiscent of a mead even for a seconds. Chewy maltiness, very light roast. Dried figs again... ooof... warming. Started off badly but improved in the end as it warmed, hopping from 2.4 to 2.9. Not as subtle or complex like the best but has its own merits.

D (577) - Gdynia, POLAND - OCT 1, 2009
Had it sold as a Baltic porter, so I was a bit surprised. It was transparent, of a mahogany-like colour with small, partially lasting head. Tasted, indeed, like a very strong doppelbock, with nice sweet finish. Alcohol is palatable, but well hidden overall.

Dark amber of color with a beige head. An aroma of apples, fruits and sweets. A flavor of fruits, apples and caramel.

kappldav123 (6015) - GERMANY - SEP 4, 2009
Bottle looks good, the beer in the glass is dark, almost black. Very malty, alcoholic and complex aroma. Starts very strong, alcoholic, with notes of liquorice and strong coffee. Malty-oily finish. Unusual, but good!
