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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

New slim 1/4 barrel keg tapped last weekend. Draft poured into my Stone RIS tulip.

A: Pours a murky dark shade of brown with a big beautiful frothy tan head (2 fingers worth) on top of it.

S: Roasted malts with a touch of vanilla, all done at a moderate volume. I pick up on some cocoa as well. To style.

T: Wow. Thick, rich, velvety, creamy. These are some of the words that first pop into my mind. Vanilla and cream first appear, followed closely by notes of luscious cocoa. A dry, semi-sweet finish, full of "roasted malt flavors", really rounds the experience out for me and make this an excellent, highly drinkable, thoroughly enjoyable Stout.

M: Elite. It's thick, full, luscious, and creamy. Simultaneous "full" and yet "light". Frothy and creamy, with a great moderately dry finish.

D/O: Highly drinkable. Thoroughly enjoyable. Strongly recommend. This keg purchase was not a mistake.

Serving type: on-tap
