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.

L: Dark. Head rises creamy and is durable.

Sm: Malt, coffee, licorice, hops

Taste: Malt, coffee, mild hops with a mild carbonation. Well blended flavor profile without anything being overly aggressive. The flavor is long lived and the beer opens up well after about 10 minutes.

Feel: Smooth, creamy finely carbonated.

Overall: The beer has a low alcohol content which is further shoved to the back ground by making this beer smooth and readily drinkable. The hops an coffee flavors are well balanced and long lasting. A good beer.

Value: I have to admit, I am partial to Bell's beer. It is priced slighter higher than most beers, but this is balanced by a better quality than other beers. I like it.
