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.

Reviewed from notes 11/20/12

Pours black with 2 inch khaki brown head.
smells strongly of roasted malts and sweet mocha.
taste is great, very smooth, rich and sweet but not overly sweet at all, reminds me somewhat of st. peters cream stout, leaves silky after taste on the palate. simple yet delish!!
