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.

Very nice rich, yet sweet Stout... Smooth enough to session on. Also full enough to enjoy only one or two. Very creamy and balanced. Worth seeking out but won't blow you away~

A- Dark as all hell. Small creamy head. Lacing remains after head quickly dissipates.

S- chocolate covered hop.

T- Dark roasted malts and chocolate first. Moderate bitter middle mixes nicely with the sweet and produces a rich complex and creamy flavor. Even more in the end with some creamy coffee and light smoke. Always creamy.

M- Double cream is no joke. Starts and ends smooth without being heavy. It's a double double.

O- This is one rich and creamy stout. It has great balance with the sweetness of the chocolate roasted malt and bitter hop back. Fits like peanut butter and jelly. Good job Bells.
