COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 ingrediënten 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.

Pour ma 150ème néerlandaise, un petit choix personnel s’est naturellement porté sur cet impérial stout aux nombreuses particularités. Niveaux abv de 8,7 %, et ebu de 66 (à noter qu’ils sont différents de ce qui est enregistré sur ratebeer). Le reste des caractéristiques semblent lui identique : café, vanille, piment royal, baie de genièvre. A noter le houblonnage en continu pendant 2 heures avec du pilgrim, et un dry hopping avec ce même houblon. Mon exemplaire avait 14 mois de mise en bouteille, et pouvait allègrement attendre la fin de l’année, ou même bien plus, mais il devait représenter les Pays-Bas à mon 150ème … Donc fidèle au poste et courageux comme le cheval de l’étiquette, il a rempli sa mission … Couleur noir intense (122 ebc), à l’opacité très forte. Nappage brun clair soyeux et stable à 1 mm. Arômes de malt choco, baies noires, chicorée, pointe délicate de charbon. 1ère bouche très souple au remarquable ensemble café/baies/genièvre. Arrière-bouche complexe, longue, très fine. 2ème au superbe développement sur café et verdure (mais n’oublions pas que le café nous arrive vert avant torréfaction, donc pas d’incompatibilité ..). Arrière-bouche qui souligne bien le malt. 3ème à la remarquable harmonie café/myrte/houblon. Arrière-bouche longue, aux cent nuances. Longueur qui développe le tout, avec un point d’honneur sur le malt torréfié. Jambes huileuses, longues. Levure dense, boisée, très grande ligne. Alcool parfait, il surveille, dirige, organise, et ne laisse rien passer. Finale à la grande harmonie. CONCLUSION : très grand imperial stout, travaillé avec une grande délicatesse et un soin quasi maniaque sur le malt et le houblon. C’est superbe de nuances, et remarquablement bien fait.

Mooie donkere kleur. Leuk flesje. Het aroma is heerlijk. Dit vind ik meestal minder bij een stout maar bij deze is het super. Romig mondgevoel. Smaak is iets bitter, geroosterde mout maar erg subtiel. Nasmaak is heel zacht. Fijne nasmaak.

I was really happy to try this beer yesterday at the Pibar, Lausanne with Raoul. I am a lover of the stout and this one is a good one, classical, strong and simply well done, all the qualities that you could expect from one stout like the horse running ahead. The body is a pleasant black colour, deep with a perfect white and brown foam. At the nose, there are nice aromas of roasted malt and coffee. The first sip confirmed that it is a good job, the taste is delightful like a full moon that you are contemplating, roasted malt, coffee, vanilla, dark chocolate in few quantity, hop. The finish is dry and mineral. It is the kind of beer that I could dry daily with pleasure.

At the end of the glass it is a good friend, but there is a journey until it's softer tones appear. First sip shows cholate and lots of bitterness. It it is really bitter, some berries, lots of malts. It is a little sour, but grows more sweet. A really nice strong ris. ---Rated via Beer Buddy (iOs)

The beer has the perfect stout looks. The color of the beer is pitch black on the eye. With a strong light behind it, a truly astonishing ruby/cherry red color can be seen. The beer looks quite clear, but it is so dark that it is hard to determine. The beer pours a minimal layer of dark foam with a color of roasted almonds. The smell is typical for a stout. It has some delicious aromas of roasted barley, coffee and some sweet chocolate. The smell is a little mild rough. It could have had a bit more bitter tones of roasted barley and smoked oak. Those aromas are present, but just not strong enough. The smell also had a soft sweet aroma, of some red forest fruits. This is quite a nice touch. The taste of the beer is delicious to. This is a little stronger than the smell, it has a bit more kick. The beer has a delicious roasty smoky bitterness to it. There is also a nice alcohol flavor to it. The flavor has a delicious strong bitterness to it. This gives the beer a real stout flavor. It also has some sweet chocolate and some coffee. The balance is nice. It is a good stout, but not the best one around.

Bottle at home. Dark brown pour, thick dense creamy tan head that leaves lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, bready yeast, some dark fruits and caramel. Flavor is quite bitter and roasted, caramel, coffee, sweet chocolate and bread. Very full bodied and intense flavor. Very nice balance. Great brew.

Potente olor a chocolate, vainilla y café. En boca un toque más amargo, que recuerda al café. Agradable al paladar, suave y cremosa

Bottle from a trade with bierkoning, huge thanx!
Pours deep black with flat creamy head. Smell has lots of coffee, roasted malts and chocolate. Starts with sweet chocolate notes, paired with some milk sugar and vanilla. Middle part has coffee, milk sugar, vanilla and lots of sweet chocolate. Goes into a sweet chocolatey finish with much lactose, coffee and some roasted malts. Outstanding Stout!!!

Hamirubi (595) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - MAY 26, 2016
33cl bottle at De Vlaamsche Reus, at Wageningen in the Netherlands (26 V 2016). 8.5 ABV, 66 EBU, 122 EBC, in a perfect imperial combo. A black tanned brew with red brown gloom and big white to beige head. The nose is rather fruity with grapes, berries, winegums and other candies. The taste has keen coffee flavours and of course the traditional sugary sweets, yet also a hoppy bitterness and mild fondant chocolate body. This results in a not that heavy, yet very long lasting chocolate-like bitter brew. Great job!

Bottle from Mam and Dad’s Holiday, Netherlands. Inky black with a thin white head. It has a rich coffee, chocolate and vanilla flavour followed by oak, leather and bitter chocolate on the smooth finish. Very good.
