4.23/5 rDev +6.5%
A: Beer pours a nice dark black body with a nice thick tan head that quickly fades.
S: I am picking up a lot of chocolate, roasted malt, coffee, toffee and a sweet malt.
T: There is a strong amount of roasted malt, some chocolate, coffee bitterness and as the beer lingers, it becomes much sweeter.
M: The beer is very easy to drink and has a tiny amount of crispness on the tip of the tongue and the back of the throat.
O: This is a very tasty beer and fits perfect with the season. Nothing better than a stout when it is cold outside.

3.58/5 rDev -9.8%
A - Pours the color of coffee, with a thick creamy head that narrows as you drink, but still retains a half-inch head for the majority of the experience.
S - Mostly chocolate, a little roasted malt, and a slight hint of alcohol.
T - Follows the nose, mostly. I taste a lot of chocolate, light roasted malts, and cream. Though the cream is present, I expected a little more for a drink titled, "Double Cream" I'm sure it's better on a nitro-tap.
M - Smooth and creamy, but there is some carbonation in there.
O - For an out of the bottle cream stout, I thought this was pretty good. On nitro-tap, I think this beer would be a knock out. I would have also liked a little more decisiveness in the flavor...either more chocolate, or more cream. Since it's a cream stout, more cream would be great.
