Very dark beer. Smells roasty, with hints of chocolate. Has a slightly creamy feel and a roasty taste. Not a stout I would rate among my favorites, but it’s not bad either.

Bottle in Seattle. Thanks Andrew. Tiny head, quick foam. Deep brown, lactic, deep milk chocolate, mocha. Rich, creamy, delicious, ok spicy alcohol. Tasty but not outstanding.

Listigovers (819) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 12, 2016
Nice roasted flavour with some oats. Pours black with thin tan head. Tastes really nice rich malt flavour with little bitterness or astringency. Interesting mouth coat, lots of flavour, good.

mike_77 (5062) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - JUN 6, 2016
Black with quick fading head. Aroma and flavour have are intense but certainly not overpowering. Smooth and creamy texture. Flavours of sweet coffee with milk and some chocolatey notes too.

andrewje41 (2611) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - MAY 29, 2016
12 oz bottle poured. Pours a near black with a loose bubble head. Aroma is initially sweet, with a caramel malt and chocolate settle. Flavor is rich chocolate, some vanilla, but masked by a roasted finish. A little empty on the finish. Some late chocolate, cocoa reminder. Pretty good, but expectations were not quite met.

ronaldtheriot (1724) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - MAY 26, 2016
Bell’s Special Double Cream Stout has a thick, beige head, a dark, red-brown appearance, and almost no lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet, brown bread, a touch of coffee and chocolate, and a shade of cream. Taste is of those elements, with noticeable, but low-level, bitterness, really, some acrid notes, and char. Mouthfeel is low medium, and Bell’s Special Double Cream Stout finishes on the slightly dry side. RJT

benpickens (475) - Camarillo, California, USA - MAY 14, 2016
Dark pour with roasting aromas of dark chocolate, tobacco, and dark roast coffee; big mouthfeel and palate with malt forward presence and a nice prolonged finish. Tastes bigger than its 6%

Vignale (3146) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 12, 2016
Flaska från Mikkeller Webbshop. En lite lättare godisstout med vissa likheter med Expedition. Söt karamell, vanilj, bränd socker, créme karamell samtidigt som att rostningen är ganska kärv. Trevlig och välbalanserad och större än sina 6,1%. Riktigt trevlig.

Negro con reflejos caoba y espuma de beis. Aromas de chocolate, café, licor, fruto negro. Cuerpo medio, con sabor de fruto negro, chocolate y final de amargor acafetado.
