Great Britain’s oldest brewery still counts among the suppliers to the Royal Court (By Appointment to HRH The Prince of Wales). Its first double stout was brewed in 1868. The brewing methods have hardly changed at all ever since. The most remarkable elements are the original mash tuns made of oak that are still used to this day.
The result is a black, illustrious beer with a strong hop aroma and delightful roasted flavour reminiscent of chocolate. Velvety-soft on the palate with hints of mocha and dark chocolate. The finish is dominated by a pleasant hop bitterness accompanied by delicate roasted flavours in the finale.
