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.

2 Served from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass and a Duvel tulip.

A: Very dark, nearly black - light does not get through. About a half finger of a head that dissipates rather quickly but is a very attractive burnt marshmallow color that contrasts beautifully with the pitch black below. Mild to moderate lacing.

S: Creamy chocolate; roasted malt; light roasted coffee, hint of vanilla and cream; fresh espresso like feel in the nose. Very nice.

T: Creamy chocolate, light roasted coffee, hints of toffee as it goes down. Absolutely fantastic balance with all the tastes. Every sip tastes great, I can hardly wait to take the next one. Everything I would be looking for in a double cream stout or american stout.

M: Medium body with light carbonation. Again, absolutely terrific balance. finishes almost like an espresso feel on the tongue. Absolutely silky smooth.

O: I was shocked how much I liked this beer. It is a fantastic stout. I love the taste as it is a festival of flavors but in a calm and elegant delivery and each one balanced perfectly with the next. Officially one of my absolute favorite beers and if it's on tap, I'm getting it.

Nearly black in color, tough to get a nice head. What forms is off-white in color. Some lacing.

Aromas of bittersweet roasted chocolate and coffee, mostly.

Taste is much the same. Bitter coffee notes, lightly sweet chocolate, other dark and roasty malt flavors as well. Pretty robust for the ABV.

Medium mouthfeel, stout-like.

This is a good stout--Bell's tends to do them well. But it's nothing out of the ordinary, really.

A: Near black with a small khaki head that dies quickly. Hardly any lacing.

S: Roasty malt, with milk chocolate and a hint of mocha. Smoke lingers in the forefront.

T: Follows the nose pretty close. Roasty up front, then some coco sweetness. There is a hint of smokiness to it too. Some hops come out and make an appearance in the finish.

M: Medium body, average to softer carbonation, pretty silky smooth.

O: A pretty solid stout. Tasty, no huge thrills, but nothing off at all.
