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.

A: Beer pours a nice dark black body with a nice thick tan head that quickly fades.

S: I am picking up a lot of chocolate, roasted malt, coffee, toffee and a sweet malt.

T: There is a strong amount of roasted malt, some chocolate, coffee bitterness and as the beer lingers, it becomes much sweeter.

M: The beer is very easy to drink and has a tiny amount of crispness on the tip of the tongue and the back of the throat.

O: This is a very tasty beer and fits perfect with the season. Nothing better than a stout when it is cold outside.
