Drake (14078) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 22, 2007
Bottle. Aroma of coffee, sour milk and dirt is not too appetizing. Pours black with tan head, small and with a little lacing. Cream is right! Mouthfeel is almost like milk. Still a little sour tasting, but a good effort. THis is 4 of 4 of my Bell’s stout-fest. I’d rank them 1) Expedition 2) Java 3) Double Cream 4) Cherry

On Tap. This is one creamy and delicious ale. It just makes you want to suck it down. Bell’s serves it too cold though.

BeerandBlues2 (13813) - Escondido, California, USA - JUN 10, 2006
12-oz. bottle from tjthresh, Batch 7250. Pours opaque with a tiny foamy tan head that mostly diminishes leaving enough for some fizzy lacing. Aroma is deep, rich dark chocolate and coffee malt, yeast (leather) with some faint hops. Malty, moderate acidic, dark sour chocolate, coffee, caramel sweetness, some creaminess, finish is toasty cocoa. Dark bodied, fizzy-tingly, creamy and smooth palate.

Dogbrick (13759) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 13, 2002
Tasted at the Barrelhouse Brewing Company Microbrew Fest on November 9. This is an excellent Stout, which I understand is par for the course with Bell's. I can't wait to try the entire line! Pours black as night with a thin bone-white head and good lacing. Great smooth creamy flavor that I could enjoy all night.
