Shepherd Neame – Double Stout

WP_20140414_001What they say: This magnificent example of a classic double stout delivers a velvety-smooth palate of dry, burnt flavours - complemented by roast, cocoa and coffee notes.

Those who see the word stout and think this is just an English Guinness will be in for a shock – or surprise. The flavour is intense. Very intense. I struggled to finish it, not because I didn’t like it – it was just so powerful. Tame it with some hot spicy food to enjoy it best and treat it with respect – 5.2% A.B.V
