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.

Malty nose - mainly roast - seasoned with coffee and chocolate.
Pours deep dark brown under a finely bubbled foam collar, thin but lacy. The roast flavors are soft rather than bitter or harsh.
Palate: bittersweet chocolate and coffee, a touch of caramel sweetness.
Chewy with an extraordinarily creamy body - very fine carbonation.

On Nitro at Al's. This allowed the beer to a creamier, softer taste as compared to a bottled version. Paired well with a chocolate dessert
