fleagle (18) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - AUG 22, 2011
Pours a dark black with a thin, somewhat persistent head. The taste and aroma is a complex mix of several malts, raisin, chocolate, vanilla and nuts, balanced by just the right bitterness. The mouth is full and lightly carbonated. I’ve sampled a dozen batches of Double Cream Stout. Each one has been slightly different and each one has been great. My favorite beer.

Una Stout que és bona, i que si no fos per la baixa graduació seria una Imperial Stout en quant a cos i sabor. Té gust a licor de café i el sabor de les Imperial Stout envellides. Té cos mig/alt. De color negre nit. Fa escuma baixa, amb bombolla petita. Amargor nul·la, és gairebé dolça. Olor a licor de cafè i xocolata. Recomanable.

ghostbeer (203) - Nebraska, USA - FEB 26, 2017
Pitch black and incredible smooth and unctuous. I was drinking this with other stouts so any aromas or nuanced flavors were really lost for me. Disappointing but I would like to try this again on its own.
