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.

First beer I've had the pleasure of enjoying from the guys at Bell's. Poured from a twelve ounce bottle into a tulip glass. Beer came out jet black but ran smooth down the glass, not overly viscous, I was a little surprised at the very little head that emerged. Smell; strong roasted malt and slightly sweet not much else yet. I Let the beer sit for about five minutes and some notes of coffee began to emerge. First sip very smooth roasted malt obviously comes through, the coffee i smelt earlier makes a strong entrance without overpowering. Second sip begins to reveal subtle flavor of burnt sugar and the creaminess of the beer becomes more noticeble. With a name like double cream stout i honestly wasn't sure what to expect of what to compare it to, but great beer overall.
