American Stout |  6.10% ABV

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.

3.8/5  rDev -4.3%
look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a fresh growler

A- pours pitch black with just a thin ring if dark tan head that dissipates quickly leaving no lace.

S- sweet chocolate and cocoa powder, a bit of bitter coffee, maybe some raisin as well.

T- sweet and creamy chocolate with just a bit of vanilla and coffee. The finish is roasted, but very subtle. Not as smoky as a usual stout which leads to a softer, creamier finish.

M- medium body with moderate carbonation, very smooth mouthfeel, finishes slinky creamy

O- very drinkable with a pleasant chocolate linger on the back end. My wife hates beer, specifically stouts, and she actually didn't make her usually disgusted face when she tried this. The underlying roasted character gives it more drinkability and would be a good option for ose who don't quite have the palate for super roasted and smoky stouts.

Serving type: growler
