4.4/5 rDev +10.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a bottle into a short stem wine glass (this is all i had at the time)
Appearance- Very dark just the way I like it, looks like motor oil, a very very deep black hue and a tan-ish low retention head.
Smell- The smell is amazing, definitely shines the light on roasted malty characteristics, the smell is misleading to how it tastes though, this is definitely a unique stout.
Taste- Very smooth as it first glides onto your tongue, then an immediate, almost carbonated taste, I would compare this to the Steel Head stout or Fish Tale organic stouts, I noticed that it was named by the ingredients and not the taste, however, it saying "double cream", I expected it to be creamy like a milk stout, more creamy flavor would balance out the hoppy taste in this beer, its good but I feel like I'm drinking a Sierra Nevada stout.
Mouthfeel- Slightly carbonated and hoppy, coffee/ malty like after taste, best served really cold! Perfect beer for these cold nights.
