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- Fantastic dark brown, not quite black color and a nice lingering tan head. Slight carbonation noticeable.

S- Subtle coffee and chocolate.

T- Roasted coffee followed by a long, oaky finish.

M- Carbonation lightens the beer up and really helps it drink easy.

O- Not quite the beer I remember it being, but nonetheless I am glad I have a couple to cellar.
