UPDATED: JAN 27, 2013 Black with a tan colored head about 1 1/2 fingers worth. Aroma was mostly cocoa chocolate with some roasted malts. Flavor was sweet with milk chocolate up front with coffee following And some burnt malt on the finish. Had a thin almost water mouthfeel. Overall an ok nothing special stout.

burgy (455) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - NOV 15, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 25, 2012 Not one of my favorite stouts... This starts straight roasted malt for me not much else. Pours deep brown with light lacing and heavy carbonation (less CO2 and I would like it a lot more). Palate is medium to heavy. Overall, not gunna buy it again.

Thick creamy body, slight coffee smell. Tastes like a good milk stout, with a nice coffee finish. Doesnít knock me over, but a decent brew.

Pours black with quickly dissipating khaki head. Aroma is dominated by roasted malts and coffee, with a slight chocolate note. Taste starts sweet but quickly reveals some hop bitterness and finishes with strong roasted malt. Nice beer but nothing revolutionary. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle to pint glass. Dark opaque appearance, light tan head. Sweet malty aroma. Smooth milk upfront, light roasted coffee aftertaste. Not a miss, but was looking for more robust flavor. Average overall

Pours black with a thick light tan head. Aroma is sweeet espresso. Taste is smooth, sweet light coffee. The lactose makes itself known and the bitterness slides in for an easy finish.

mikesaum (600) - Newark, Ohio, USA - SEP 28, 2013
Pours an awesome black with a good thick tan head. Aroma is a bit smoky, chocolate malts and some what creamy. Taste is sweet chocolate that fades to a more smokey malt flavor and a clean finish. For being labeled double cream stout, the palate i feel should be much creamier. Not too bad.

On tap at Bellís Beer Social at Tap and Mallet. Not sure if they served this or Milk Stout. They were calling it Double Cream Milk Stout, and called it a sweet stout. Served after the porter, and tasted lighter than the porter, but it was good. Starts creamy, somewhat light in body. Ends smoky, heavy in the charred malts. Satisfying.

scotchzombie (385) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - NOV 2, 2013
Pours deep deep brown with a foamy tan head that fades to a finger or so. Aroma is creamy roast malts and slighty bitter. Taste is creamy smooth and very mild - a bit milky/thin-watery. Not a ton of flavor depth. Roasted malts with chocolate and coffee vanilla cream. Again mild. Aftertaste is slightly bitter roast malt with a sense of cream but mouthfeel is more skinny than creamy. Not nearly as good as Expedition but easygoing and drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours deep coffee brown with little head. A rich, sweet malt dominates the aroma. The flavor is smooth and sweet. A little hop tingle in the finish. I donít know how "special" this stout is, but itís pretty darn good.
