A stout from Ramses bier brewed at the 3 Horne brewery. Brewed with biological coffee, vanilla, hopflowers, bog myrtle, juniper berry. SHIRE STOUT is een sterk, stoer doch elegant bier. Om de bierbewaarheid te ondersteunen is Gagel en Jeneverbes toegevoegd. Vanille en koffie complementeren de mout smaken. Door de bitterheid, het hoge alcohol percentage, en de bijzondere ingredinten kan dit bier gracieus rijpen. Single hop UK Pilgrim Het 120 minuten continu toevoegen van deze Engelse hop draagt bij aan het exclusieve karakter van dit bier. Het is aangenaam kruidig met een toon van ceder en een vleugje citrus. Dry hop Het toevoegen van extra hop tijdens de lagering versterkt de hop geur en de hop smaak zonder het bier bitterder te maken.

yngwie (16989) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 18, 2014
Bottle. A gusher, almost clear though, topped by a dense, light beige head leaving some lacings. Dark brown in color. Roasted malts, lots of chocolate, some dried fruits and a faint yeast note on the nose. The flavor has vanilla and coffee blending in with the roasted malts and chocolate known from the aroma. Full body and a nice carbonation level. Lasting finish. A decent beer, but a tad boring I think. Lacks depth. 140530

Maakun (5183) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 12, 2014
Very dark brown with huge light beige head. Sour berries, some weird musty taste like old spice mix, rye, cola, light nuts, light citrus and pine. Some grains and a hint of coffee. Sour with bitter finish. Medium bodied, way too much carbonation. This is kind of weird, quite interesting though but the carbonation doesnt help.
