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.

Poured Bell's Special Double Cream Stout into a pint glass.

A - The stout pours black as midnight with a finger of light mocha head.

S - Getting some roasted malts, some chocolate. A bit of coffee in there as well. A little faint on the aroma.

T - Some smooth coffee and a tad of bitter hops comes through. A taste of baker's chocolate comes through mid palate. Faint vanilla flavor in there as well.

M - This is a creamy stout, medium carbonation with medium mouthfeel. This is where this beer shines. It truly is a cream stout, nice stuff.

O - A very good stout here, I think Bell's does a nice job here. Enjoy! Cheers!

T: Roasted malt, cocoa, coffee, a hint of burnt sugar
M: Medium-bodied, smooth
O: Not my favorite stout, not my favorite Bells beer, but overall a solid beer & enjoyable to drink
