Double Stout

Stout - ABV 5.1%

This Double Stout is brewed to the same strength as that brewed in 1938 with Pale Malt, Chocolate Malt and Black Malt.  In the copper we use the finest Kent hops and late hop with West Kent Goldings. We also use the same yeast as used in Westerham Ales up until the brewery's closure in 1965.

My Story

The word 'stout' in the brewer's lexicon means 'strong'.  In Victorian times 'stout porter' was a strong porter brewed with pale, brown and patent black malts. 'Double Stout' was therefore a stronger type of stout.  In the 1920s and 1930s the Black Eagle Brewery in Westerham brewed 'Single Stout', bottled as 'Family Stout' and a 'Double Stout', sold on draught and in bottles.

This Double Stout is brewed to the same strength as that brewed in 1938 with Pale Malt, Chocolate Malt and Black Malt.  In the copper we use the finest Kent hops and late hop with West Kent Goldings. We also use the same yeast as used in Westerham Ales up until the brewery's closure in 1965.
