3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours very dark with a small tan head. Taste of roasted malts, chocolate, some coffee. Balanced. Sweet but not overpowering. Understated alcohol with a smooth pleasantly bitter finish. Very nice and I’ll say it again: balanced.

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2012 Not as much aroma as I would’ve expected. A little bit of smoke. Tastes roasted. Chocolate, a little coffee, with a little bit of biscuit. Not quite as smooth as a cream stout should be, but great on the palate. Pleasant, welcoming aftertaste.

Thick creamy body, slight coffee smell. Tastes like a good milk stout, with a nice coffee finish. Doesn’t knock me over, but a decent brew.

I had a glass of this at Ashley’s of Ann Arbor, and it must have been aged because I had it yesterday. Expedition is too intense for me but Double Cream is just about perfect as stouts go--bittersweet chocolate with coffee and alcohol.

Very smooth and creamy, but balanced with a little bitterness. Almost a perfect balance of maltiness, sweetness and bitterness. Thick, sweet flavor that fills the mouth and coats the throat.

Full of Malts, caramel, some roasted coffee and a little bit chocolate. Creamy but not that syrup crap many Stout makers are passing off. Absolutely delicous. Just sampled a fresh batch from Oct. 08. It think it’s even better this year...

(11.26.08) 12 oz. bottle: Black pour with small light brown head. Roasty aroma of coffee, milk chocolate. Creamy palate, typical of a sweet stout. Flavor is like the nose, milky, roasty, malty.

Sweet coffee and chocolate taste but in no way cloying, enjoyed this one in a way comparable to Founder’s Breakfast Stout.

Outstanding cream stout. Very nice, think body and head that stays for the whole glass. Nice flavor, but prefer a more flavorful coffee stout. Nice smooth finish. No bitterness like you get in some imperial stouts. Great winter beer I’ll get year in year out.

Very smooth. Pours black with a brown head. Very creamy taste. Best served after dinner and in the winter. It’s a ’warmer’ tasting brew.
