Since 1845, every Fuller's Head Brewer has kept a hand written book of brews. The Past Masters series uses this precious archive of brewing knowledge to revive selected, long-lost beers for today's connoisseurs. It's a glimpse into our unique brewing history. Double Stout is the second in the series, brewed to a recipe from 4th August 1893 - a time when 'stout' meant 'strong', its' signature ingredient is Plumage Archer barley, carefully malted and kilned using C19th methods. Dark, brown, and creamy, this beer balances a rich fruity aroma with smoky, bittersweet chocolate notes.

    The LCBO got a bunch of different Fuller's this past Christmas, and this is one of them. Pours a dark cola brown colour with very little red highlights. The head is big, creamy, beige, long-lasting and creates great lacing. Aromas of roasted malts, molasses, coffee, caramel and hints of anise. Smooth mild creamy mouthfeel with a little wetness. The roasted malt is felt a bit more in the taste with a nice roasted finish. Notes of nuts, chocolate, coffee and very light dark fruits. Smoke lingers in the aftertaste. A very easy-to-drink Imperial Stout.

    Finally found time to post my tasting notes on these Fuller's specialties. This double stout pours a dark brown-black with a smallish cap that does lace the glass well. Modest carbonation. Nose has lots of fruity notes, some roasted graininess and a note of wet hay wonderful clean stout aromas. Medium bodied, rich silky mouth feel. Big dose of bitter-sweet coca in front, some smoke, woodiness, roastiness, goes to a decadent complexity as it sits on the palate – some hazel nut, dark fruits and caramel show up - all in excellent balance with traditional UK hop varieties. Goes to a long lingering finish with roasty-cocoa-hop tones, clean roasty end. Possibly the best commercial stout I’ve ever tasted and at this price a bargain - I’d have bought a case if it were more available.

    One of the 6 beers brought in as part of the Fuller's release at the LCBO. This is the easiest drinking Impy Stout I have ever had. A deep brownish colour with a thin head. Lots of chocolate and cocoa in the aroma and flavour and absolutely no hints of alcohol.

    The beer poured a solid dark brown colour with a bubbly brown head. The aroma was roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, and vanilla. The mouthfeel was full bodied, creamy, and medium carbonated. The flavour was roasted malt, coffee, and caramel. Very good beer.
