We are delighted to announce that our Imperial Extra Double Stout has won “World’s Best Imperial Stout”, and Tom Paine “Europe’s Best Bitter over 5% abv” at the World Beer Awards 2014. Imperial Extra Double Stout has now received an amazing 15 major awards in the past 15 years!
View their tasting notes for the beers below;
“Great oliy texture, a real hint of whisky? Barrel aged tasting. Quite a high sugar content cutting through the treacle candy notes. Beautiful but not a slow reeal, more like a bold slap around the taste buds.”
“Murky, dark note, dense. Dark and oily, vegetal, very complex. Light musty note, long finish, still charred and vanilla-ish. ”
“Refreshing acidities (lactic and acetic). Fascinating example of an Imperial Russian Stout.”
“Orangey gold, almost in head, raisins/ dried fruit aroma. Tangy and bitter – gives way to malty aftertaste.”
“Good copper colour, burnt sugars and rounded flavours.”
“Interesting. Difficult to dislike. ”
