Beautiful black brew tinged with brown hues. Big, full brown head, with excellent retention and lacing.

Very nice strong but balanced aroma: roasted barley, cream, and cocoa. Just the barest hint of grapes in the background.

Flavor follows the nose: lots of roasted barley, manifest as a bitter dark stout. Powdered cocoa, a hint of black coffee, chewy barley, and a nice creamy undertone. Very slight alcohol heat.

Silky, thick mouthfeel, shy of the thicker stouts. A little back-end heat. No foaming or sting. Lovely.

This is a well-crafted, straight forward imperial stout, and is an excellent representative thereof. It's not overly hoppy, letting the bitterness of the roasted malt carry the balance. It has a depth of flavor that is delicious without being overpowering. I think this is an excellent brew, offered at an excellent price point.

It was a good Stout. Nothing to write home about. I'm not sure how amazing it was though considering I'm not a big Stout drinker, so I may have to revisit it at a later date.

I like this beer. Pours as it's name suggests.
All the ingredients are there-- nice sculptured foamy head
Black molasses in the nose along with a jab of hops.
But on the initial taste-- and maybe I'm expecting something else seeing "Double" in the name-- its initial stance on my palate is thin, a bit flat, deflated-- where's the air pump?
I wouldn't say this if the label simply said "Stout",,, but seeing "Double" I expected "Sumo".
Regardless of my critical demeanor-- it's a great brew with all the classic flavors.
A gorgeous beer.

Excellent stout with great smoothness and wonderful bitter chocolate aroma as warms from a bottle. Lovely dark tan head and decent foam. Great roasted flavor in the malt with slight hop dryness in the finish.
