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.

Poured into bells pint glass

A-pours a dark black. Cant see any light through even when held up to the light. Small 1 finger head that falls into a nice mocha brown layer on the top.

S-I'm getting sort of a sweet oatmeal scent with a hint of roasted coffee. Smells pretty good. Maybe a hint of vanilla somewhere as well.

T-Interesting. I;m getting quite a mixture of flavors here, taste buds seem a bit confused, in a good way. Some sweetness, oatmeal, a bit of coffee, and something else I can't quite put my finger on.

MF-Very smooth. Medium to heavy body for the style. Definitely getting some carbonation, maybe a tad to much but nothing to complain about.

O-this is a pretty good beer. I have recently decided to raise my standards for a 4, and this I think still gets one across the board. Very nice blend of all the malts.
