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.

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
