Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Mitchster on 12-30-2001

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.

A = Dark black without much of a head.

S = Chocolate and coffee

T = Semi-sweet chocolate coming through with hints of coffee.

M = Creamy and smooth as velvet

D = Incredibly balanced. Even after warming, the beer was great including a very nice finish.

This particular offering has turned me into a "stout" drinker.

12 oz bottle from Wolverine Market.

Pours a dark black with a finger of tan foamy head. Nose is sweet with cocoa, espresso notes, dark and complex malts, a sense of roasted beans. Taste is full; good coffee flavour mixed with roasted malts. Sweet and bitter finish. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, creamy yet smooth and dry. A decent stout but not mind blowing or Bells best.
