Bell’s Special Double Cream Stout

12 oz single from Liquor Barn, Lexington, KY, USA. Batch #7684.

Jet black pour with some orange highlights at the extremeties. Nice milk chocolate head froms which provides good lace.

A mild funk in the aroma that I suppose is the lactose/cream element but it smells a little odd – slightly sour. Taste reflects the style but lacks any serious sweetness and the lactos element seems to have turned to mild cheese in my sample!

Doesn’t really do it for me, the beer lacks a certain depth and taste. Not bad, just not up to the usual high standards that we have come to expect from Bell’s.
