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.

Looks dark and beautiful, smells delicious, mouthfeel is so creamy, and it tastes as delicious as it smells. I know its seasonal but I stash a few to enjoy all summer long. The roasted malt characteristics stand out, with some fleeting hints of smoke and dark fruit. Just enough sweetness to balance out the earthiness and hop bitterness. Such a great beer I can't get enough of it.
