Liquorpond Double Stout
1830’s Double Stout – 7.4% ABV, 94 IBUs
A beer brought forward in time from the 1830s, this Double Stout will change your idea of what a stout can taste like. A large amount of brown malt brings a nice roast flavor to the beer (without going into coffee), and yet a creaminess lingers on the back end. Even at over 7%, you’ll want more than one of these pints!
Double stouts are exactly what they sound like, two stout recipes in one. In the modern parlance you might consider these a form of “Imperial Stout” though those were a bit different and really made for the European market (especially the Baltic area).
This particular recipe (from a long-gone London brewery that used to located on Liquorpond Street!) was of supreme popularity in it time! The hop level on this seems to be (to the eye) a lot on the IBU scale, but in reality it is really smooth. The hops (Goldings & Fuggles) are needed to balance the remaining sweetness in the beer, and they really help to round out the earthiness of this brew. We think you’ll really enjoy this one!
