Michigan, United States

Style: American Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.10%

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.

I'm not sure if a double cream is a recognized style but this is really good. I tried slamming a couple quaffs but it was like stuffing two milk chocolate truffles in my face. So chocolatey! So drinkable. Liquid chocolate love. Not too hoppy - a fault with many stouts. This is milky and thick and malty and very much like a malt shake. I say "you make me very happy." Double happy. Good beer.

I really enjoyed this beer.
Draft into a typical pint glass.
Ever present cream head about a millimeter deep.
Beautiful rich dark black with brown lacing.
Soft mouth feel with soft effervescence. A little sticky without cloying.
Toffee and coffee with a hint of hop bitterness, raspberry chocolate to finish. Well balanced and integrated.
Pasteurization: No
