The aroma speaks of malt, chocolate, and coffee. Not quite as harsh as some of Bell's other stoutly offerings. Opaque with no head at all. Body is creamy with elements of lactose and coffee. One of my favorite stouts!

Overall an enjoyable beer. Not much of a head or lacing. Black in color, looks just like a good stout. This is only my second "cream" stout (the other being Sam Adams) but I liked this one a lot.

Pours very dark brown, with good brown head. Rich, sweet, creamy,malty aroma. Smooth creaminess, sweet and malty. Some chocolate and vanilla, and light roasted flavor, with a nice balanced bitterness. Excellent beer.

Wow. Bells hit a home run again; they’re so good at making stouts and porters......this one’s so creamy, I expected it to be cloudy white with whipped cream in it. great roasted flavors, subdued bitterness, ends with a mild hop flourish and lingering roasted maltiness. Excellent.

Bell’s Special Double Cream Stout - 6.1%
Had at Lititz cask ale festival 10/29/10
Soft black with small creamy tan head. Roasted coffee aroma, earthy. Extremly smooth and quite dry. Not a lot of carbonation. Tasty is creamy milk chocolate with a hint of coffee. Silky mouthfeel, I could drink a few of these if I didn’t have anything to eat.
Exceptional cream stout, well done.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tasted at the Great Madison St. Stout Off, from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Loved the fresh cream aroma off this and this one is smooth and sweet and flat out one of the best tasting beers Ive ever had. Light brown bubbling head on a pitch black body. This one is close to perfect for me.

Pours black with dark brown head. Aroma is a little rusty, flavor is chocolaty coffee with some fruit notes, but reduced itself to a bit of a steel taste on the palate. Decent beer.
