I could mix this with my Cocoa Puffs in the morning. Great flavor...wonderful aroma. Glad I have 4 left.

Just as a top notch stout should be with hints of dark chocolate and roasted coffee. It has a great after taste that stays in your mouth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone Kennyshomebrewing.blogspot.com

Bell’s has done it again with yet another masterful craft brew. For stout lovers, you can’t go wrong. And, a nice stout for those not into stouts. A sweet tasting stout with a chocolate malt aroma. Pours a deep, rich black color with little head. A silky, creamy texture with little carbonation that is long on the finish. Best sipped and savored, not chugged!

One of Bell’s all around best brews. Naturally it’s better on Draft but is easily one of the better stouts out there

Bells special double cream stout. Will get this again. Good winter beer and a new favorite porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

UPDATED: MAY 22, 2005 Bell’s double cream stout is the perfect dessert beer. This is the one beer that you would be most tempted to create an ice cream float with. The chocolate and roasted barley blend perfectly to produce a well balanced malt flavor - excellent hop balance. The head tend to be a lot darker than many stouts. A friend of mine who is a confirmed Budweiser drinker, makes this his only exception. This might rerate at a perfect 5 someday in the future.

pours black with diminishing tan head. choclate and coffee nose. damn good stout but seems alot more like an imperial stout than a sweet or cream stout, but who cares its good

The best word to describe this beer is creamy... creamy pour, creamy head, and creamy mouthfeel... more than hints of mocha and bitterness. Good on special nights but the rule of too much of a good thing applies with this beer. A little to specific for a staple beer, but deliscious the same

Wow. Bells hit a home run again; they’re so good at making stouts and porters......this one’s so creamy, I expected it to be cloudy white with whipped cream in it. great roasted flavors, subdued bitterness, ends with a mild hop flourish and lingering roasted maltiness. Excellent.
