Wadworth 125 Double Stout (6%)

Brewed to celebrate the 125th year of the Northgate Brewery and using an old, private recipe, this is a very nice stout indeed.
But it’s nowhere near a double stout.
Very soft and very delicious, the backbone is port and bitter chocolate.
Prune juice with custard cream biscuits, followed by a shot of warm rum.
As I said it’s a great stout, but double?
Surely something double should have at least one enormous knockout thing, big bad hops or a mega chocolate punch in the kisser.
This beer doesn’t have that in any way, but the things it has are delightful.
And it came in a nice box with a fancy glass.
