Availability: Winter

Notes/Commercial Description:
Double Cream Stout derives its name from its smooth, creamy texture, not the ingredients. Completely dairy-free, this stout blends ten different specialty malts to yield a remarkable depth of flavor. With only a touch of burnt notes, Double Cream Stout focuses on the softer, cocoa & espresso-like aspects of roasted malt.

Real dark brown pour, cream colored head. Roasty coffee, malt and mocha. Not extreamly "creamy", but it has the best of milk stout flavor with the edge of a double. More roasty malt and coffee than a normal sweet, but has the chocolate, mocha and slight lactic tones. More hoping than usual creates this balance I would guess. Drinkable and dangerously sessionable with it's slightly lower abv that beers with similar characteristics, ie imperial or double stouts. This is somewhere between a sweet stout and a double, which is what makes it a standout and unique to me. Nothing out there is quite like this one.
