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.

Had a couple of these at a local restaurant on tap. Definitely a heavy stout for a winter day. Outstanding flavor. Actually prefer this over Guinness. Next to a great burger, forget about it...

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

On tap poured into shaker pint


A: very dark black slightly off white small head


S: very roasty nice deep smell of coffee and roasted malts 


T: very smooth a little roast a little coffee a little licorice quite a nice taste and a good dose of chocolate


M: Average to thin but for a lower ABV beer it's not too bad 


O: it's got a great flavor but it's thin which hangs me on most stouts but it still is one of Bells better offerings
