BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Bell's Brewery, Inc.
Michigan, United States
bellsbeer.com

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.

A - Jet black, carbonated tan head, looks like Coca-Cola, head never really dissipated

S - Chocolate and Coffee! (My four-year-old daughter thought it smelled like cookies!)

T - Delicious! Chocolate stout, malty, very creamy, just the right amount of carbonation and bitterness

M - Thick and creamy yet crisp and clean (if that makes any sense); doesn't leave that thick aftertaste other stouts seem to

O - One of my favorite Bell's beers! Very sessionable, in my opinion. I could see some nervous stout wannabe's give this a go and enjoy it. Worth the high price point if you ask me...

Very nice rich, yet sweet Stout... Smooth enough to session on. Also full enough to enjoy only one or two. Very creamy and balanced. Worth seeking out but won't blow you away~
