IanAcceptable29 Jan 2008 Deep ruby/brown with little beige head. Roasty stout. Maybe overly roasted with liquorice too. Some condition. But a little thin in mouth. Too much liquorice for my liking. Toffee, caramel aroma, maybe a touch of diacetyl. Odd and not to my taste.

Hook Norton Double Stout

4.80% ABV.

Smooth and full-bodied with a refreshing hoppy aftertaste. A blend of dark malts give it a character all of itís own. Black malt enriches the colour and teases the palate, and brown malt gives it the dryness.

We have tried this beer 14 times.

We have given this beer an average score of Good to Excellent.
