Brewed by:
Bell's Brewery, Inc.
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.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A - Pours pitch black with a two-finger tan foamy head. Heavy lacing.

S - Roasted malts, sweet milk chocolate, and dark coffee.

T - Follows the smell. Roasted malts with sweet milk chocolate. Bitter coffee in the middle. Finish is smokey.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Smooth drinking with a watery mouthfeel.

O - Very easy drinking roasted stout. A little more body would help out. Still very good.
