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 decent offering, not sure about the "double cream" part, but still good...

I liked it's dark coloration and tan head, though the smell was mostly run-of-the-mill. Mouthfeel was slightly creamy, very carbonated and a tinged astringent. I tasted chocolate notes, roasted malts, and a base of coffee grounds (I like coffee.) Anyway, it's not as creamy as advertised but it's still solid enough.

Pours a dark brown with a light tan head. Smells of cream, chocolate, and roasted malt. Tastes of sweet coffee, chocolate, roasted malts, and cream. Medium-heavy body with medium carbonation. Overall a really good sweet stout.

Pours a black color with a small amount of light brown head that fades into a little lacing. Smell is roasted malts, dark chocolate, cocoa, and coffee. Taste is bitter chocolate, black licorice, vanilla, hint of brown sugar. Creamy, smooth, full body. Great beer, good flavors, easy drinker. Would happily buy this again.

L: Black with just a tiny bit of ruby red at the bottom of the glass. The head is small, tan, with moderate retention, and splotchy lacing.
S: Milk chocolate, malted milk balls, cocoa powder, roasted grains, toasted brown bread, almond milk.
T: Milk chocolate, caramel, malted milk balls and cocoa powder upfront, with some black licorice and raisin. On the mid-palate, a toasted brown bread malt backbone with lots of roasted grain. The finishes dries out with some dark roast coffee, and toffee, a bittersweet chocolate taste lingering coating the mouth and lingering.
F: Medium, smooth, slightly creamy, well-rounded with a moderate carbonation.
O: A really great, sessionable stout with a greater, sweeter-ish flavors. Like a really great oatmeal stout.
