Bell’s Double Cream Stout pours to a jet black opaque color with a thick, creamy tan head, and a soft carbonation. The nose on this beer is just jam packed with malt and hops. Waves of dark chocolate, sweet malt, coffee, and fragrant piney/citric hop aromas flood the nose. The palate is big and fat on this beer, with lots of big malty flavors. Really wonderful chocolatey flavors, coffee syrup flavor, and sweet malt flavors dance over the tongue, with just a hint of roast. This beer finishes with more big chocolate malt flavors up front, then ends with a balancing piney/citric smack of hop bitterness.
Wow. This beer is awesome, and pure bliss to drink. Its fresh, rich, robust, bitter sweet chocolate, and coffee flavors make this beer ideal for deserts. This beer would match well with a desert of chocolate pudding, chocolate layer cake, or as a desert itself 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.

This beer is absolutely delicious-- creamy, sweet, with just the right amount of bitter. Perfect as a desert. Deelgee (17) - - SEP 24, 2017

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2005 The name alone got me to drool. This beer is like a good chocolate malt, and goes great with chocolate covered pretzels. Normally I like a stout to warm up a little, but I love to get these ice-cold in a cooler and get the bottle nice and wet. I swear the best beer is brewed in Michigan, and stuff like this supports my case. The flavor is not totally over the top like Expedition Stout, but rich and creamy indulgence.
