Fuller's - Past Masters Double Stout
Second in the Past Masters Series.
Pours very dark brown, almost black with a thin but lasting tan coloured head.

Aroma of molasses, coffee and chocolate.
Feel is rich, full and creamy.
Taste is dark chocolate, berries and raisins, a touch of molasses and a lot of bread dough.
Very good blend of flavours with nothing overpowering and a bright enough finish to clean everything up well.
The dark chocolate and berry flavours linger for a long while. I could find no hint of alcohol.
I like this a lot. Once again this is from Fuller's "Past Masters" series. According to the back label this is from a recipe dated Aug. 4th 1893. It seems that beer drinkers were doing pretty well then.

A coarse and short-lived head on a very dark red/brown coloured brew.
The aroma is quite malty with lots of roasted grain smells, some coffee and licorice with just a hint of citrus.

Feel is chewy and thick, quite creamy.
Tastes start with chocolate and coffee, the anise or licorice tastes are a nice touch, they are fairly faint and well in the background but noticeable. There is a light sparkling citrus like bitterness which lingers well into the finish. An alcohol taste is barely discernible when I think about it.
I think that it is the feel of this beer which makes it most successful. Thick and rich, perfect for cold weather drinking while the light and bright tastes in the finish don't bog it down like some heavier beers tend to do,
I like this one in the winter, for much the same reasons that I like a good Imperial Stout.
