Fullers, Past Masters Double Stout
ABV : 7.4%
Looks : The colour is dark brown with a ruby tinge to it, with a one finger, milky coffee head. Head did not last long.
Aroma : There is a strong aroma with roast malt and a sweet wood smell. There is definitely a coffee smell present.
Flavour : There is a great bittersweet chocolate flavour with a nice hoppy burnt wood taste with a fruity undertone.
Finish : Long finish with bittersweet chocolate and alcohol tinge.
Rating : 9 out of 10
This is a truely exceptional ale, which has been carefully created by Fullers Brewery. To me it seems to be a stronger version of their Black Cab Stout, which was launched late in 2011. Well done Fullers.
