Michigan, United States

Style: American Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.10%

Availability: Fall

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.

From a twelve ounce bottle into a pint glass.

A- Pitch black (as was the trend for my beers this past Saturday), dark khaki-colored head a finger thick, abundant lacing

S- Heavy grain smell, oatmeal and granola and other sweet malts.

T- Molasses is heavy at the finish, and there's lots of vanilla, caramel and dark roasted malt gives it a burnt flavor. There are some hints of dark chocolate.

M- Creamy, somewhat light-bodied, with lots of different sensations on the tongue. There's the dryness, sweetness, and a mealy sort of feel.

O- I didn't know what to make of this stout initially because there are so many flavors and sensations going on. But I'd say it's good. Maybe a bit scatterbrained as far as its approach and perhaps unfocused, but still good.
