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.

celebrating 5 years(and one day) on RB! bottle. deep, clear, purplish brown under a very large, loud, fizzy tan head. aroma of dark fruits(plum, raisin, cherry), nougat. i happen to like sweet beers and this one is definitely that. first sip resembles some kind of alcoholic raisin, sticky prune, liquid candy concoction. extremely sweet. medium bodied and chewy. the second sweetest beer i remember behind the old Kasteelbier Donker(melted brown sugar) underrated.

troopie (2303) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - JAN 27, 2010
Bottle. Poured deep ruby with thick ecru head. Much lacing. Fruity aroma, cherries, malt sweetness, caramel, toast. Flavour is unbalanced. Alcohol with plums and syrup. Oversweet. Finish begins thin, then turns to alcohol. This needs more hops to balance it.

boFNjackson (4200) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 26, 2010
Bottle... Poured a mahogony/ruby tone with a thick, beige head. Aroma of rich, brown sugars, dark fruits, and a metallic quality. A thick, boozy brew. Lots of fruit esters and dark plum, raisin, and prune-like fruit flavors. Not a lot of hops going but vastly diacetyl.

MrBunn (2789) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 25, 2010
Bottle (with a terrifying 10.5% ABV indicated on the label.) I’m a little worried about blindness or some other side effect from this as I pour. Pour is fair enough, though. A nice reddish brown body with a very dense foamy head of a finger and a half. Aromas are even pretty attractive. I pick up some light chocolate, a bit of fruit (apples and plum?), a little bit of a creamy smell and no alcohol. Flavor is another matter... it’s not bad, it’s just too much. Way unbalanced sweetness and fruitiness (which might even be really good if I were in the mood for it), an alcoholic warmth and a bit of an astringency.

yemenmocha (659) - Glendale, Arizona, USA - DEC 20, 2009
New, fresh bottles just arrived here. Contrary to many, I find this to be a good doppelbock. My fresh bottle made for an amazing pour with a good 1-2 inch head of light tan froth that looked gorgeous, and retained rather well through the stein. Plenty of lace. Nose has some fresh brownbread aromas and a faint resemblance to cookie dough. Upon tasting there is a very pleasing malt sweetness that is far more sweet than most doppelbocks present to the palate. Espresso crema is there as well, perhaps an espresso with 2 shots of sugar in the raw. No harsh flavors whatsoever. Smooth body. Somewhat sexy & sweet. Finish leaves a kiss of caramel on the palate.

Bottle @ Billa, Prague. Pours dark brown with a small creamy white head. Nose is vaguely roasted and very sweet of nuts and chocolate. Taste is even sweeter. Lots of Sugar, syrup and some caramel and dried fruit. Smooth and medium mouthfeel. Way too much syrup and alcohol.
