Michigan, United States

Style: American Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.10%

Availability: Winter

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.

Deep black color with red highlights and a dark caramel thin head.
Predominant aroma of coffee with milk, some caramel and dark fruits.
Malt roasted flavor with notes of milk, coffee, cocoa, earthy and citrus hops and licorice. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Quite creamy body with low carbonation.
A mellow Stout with a velvet sensation. Good, not exceptional.
