Pours a black with thick mocha head that stays around for a while. Aroma of chocolate and coffee. Flavor is a pleasant surprise, slight sweetness with hints of vanilla. Finishes very nicely and sticks around for a while after. Definitely a very nice stout.

RedSox2004 (1685) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - OCT 22, 2016
Deep black with slight mahogany highlights, one-finger mocha head that dissipates quickly and oily lace. Aromas of roasted malts with dark bittersweet chocolate, wood and hints of dark fruit. Complex flavor profile starts with roasted malt that quickly gives way to bittersweet dark chocolate, powdered cocoa, and a dark fruit note. Burnt toast, roasted coffee and cream make appearances. Full body, minimal carbonation, slick mouthfeel and a bitter chocolate/coffee finish.

From Labirratorium. In Teku glass. Playing Magic duels. Pleasant smooth brew, without nothing standing out but nothing bad either. On the mild side without being flat.

katrinaez (1431) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 8, 2016
Really nice sweet stout. Not fake sugary. Malts and bitter barley end well. Sugars balance it nicely. Lots of vanilla a bit of the swiss miss cocoa concept. Mouth is full and coats the tongue the way a sweet stout should. Bottle

snoworsummer (4805) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 8, 2016
From a bottle. Pour opaque dark brown with a fizzy tan head. Tastes like dark chocolate malt, booze, smokey wood, ashy, and earth. Light/medium body and carbonation. Smells like dark chocolate malt, earthy, ashy wood, and booze.

Itís been a little while since Iíve started a review with a blatantly inappropriate comment. Hereís one for not-so-old timeís sake: Bellís Double Cream Stout was so good it made me cream myself twice. Okay, Iíve got that out of my system. This Sweet Stout pours black and opaque. Cocoa and coffee smells. Bold roasted coffee flavor with some (but not too much) lactose behind it. Some chocolate and a little licorice. Smooth as suede. It was a damn good breakfast pairing.

Luvystypotables (1692) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - SEP 27, 2016
Not up to Bellís standard, an aroma of malt and coffee with a hint of smoke, pours a dark brown color with a lasting tan foamy head. A dry feel with a bitter coffee taste and dry bitter chocolate finish.

Rami Rami is drinking a Special Double Cream Stout by Bellís Brewery at Hostal Plaza De Goya Z 12/01/15. Niewiele ciala, ale poza tym bardzo fajny, slodkawy, owocowy, nieco palony, pumperniklowy. Troche jak dobry baltycki. Bdb+

SeniorZozo (1274) - Budapest, HUNGARY - SEP 13, 2016
Tasting session @ Budapest. Aromas of nutty, roasted malts, roasted chocolate, lactose, vanilla, nougat. Taste is chocolate sweetness with caramel and nutty notes. Mouthfeel is a bit too light bodied with moderate carbonation.
