Brewed by:
Bell's Brewery - Eccentric Café & General Store
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.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance - Dark chocolate color, almost black. Pours with a nice brown colored head and diminishes immediately into slight brown film.

Smell - Rich, nutty aroma with a hint of smoke and molasses.

Taste - Nice smokey flavor with a touch of residual bitterness. Rich spicy flavor with wood-like notes.

Mouthfeel - Very smooth and creamy on the palate, even thicker as it goes down.

Overall - Extremely enjoyable and balanced cream stout. Not too overpowering, but rustic smoke flavor is apparent. Pleasant mouthfeel and texture. Great winter beer.

Poured out of a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

A – Black pour with a healthy one finger of dark tan head that receded quickly and settled down to a nice cover.

S – Milk chocolate and vanilla with a nice roasted malt. Toffee.

T - Roasted malts first followed by a light chocolate taste, more dark chocolate then the aroma suggests. Not sweet. Coffee next with almost no bittering effect. Vanilla and toffee. Not much alcohol feel to it, fairly light.

M – Very creamy on the palate. Smooth. Medium bodied with ample carbonation.

O – Very solid stout here. Tasty and good mouthfeel.
