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.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Pours black In color with a 2 finger deep tan head. Head retains nicely and leave a good amount of lacing around the glass.

Smell has a great malt body to it. hints of toffee and a slight nuttiness are present with an overall deep rich Carmel smoothness. Reminds me of Carmel corn, very plesent. The finish in the nose has a very slight roast character to it.

Taste is great. Starts with a rich malt sweetness that has hints of Carmel and chocolate. The roasted malts finish this beer and add a great dimension and transition from the rich malt to roasted malt with a slight bitterness tying it all together.

The mouthfeel of this beer is awesome. Thick but nothin too crazy, has an overall creamy rich feel to it. Carbonation is there but not overdone. This is a great s beer. You will have a hard time finding an American stout better then this unless you go to the brewery and grab the nitro version.
