Notes/Commercial Description:
Inspired by the perennial café favorite, Double Latte combines two of the greatest things in life: good coffee and great beer. Oregon’s Ninkasi Brewing knows their way around a good cup of joe. Featuring cold-press coffee from the legendary Stumptown Coffee Roasters and a dose of milk sugar, this coffee milk stout is a rich and roasty treat.

This young-gun brewery has a locomotive charge. A rich conversation at a local bottle shop in 2005 has morphed into a Pacific Northwest staple. Named after the Sumerian goddess of fermentation, Ninkasi’s first batch of beer was Total Domination IPA and it remains a must for those with a lupulin itch.

Appearance: Dark, dark brown with a dark tan head.

Aroma: Dark roasted coffee smell, not quite burnt or smoky, but very roasty.

Taste: Pleasantly sweet, but with enough bitterness to balance. Lots of roasty toasty malt present, which give it a dark chocolatey, coffee-like taste.

Mouthfeel: Milk stout without a doubt, very soft and smooth.

Overall: Definitely evokes the flavors of a double latte with its milky sweetness, coffee bitterness, and smooth, foamy feel. One of the highlights of the Beer Camp 12-pack for sure.

Poured into a standard pint glass: color is black, fairly solid, brown edges; head is tan presenting 1/2 inch thick then dissipates to thin top with nice lacing on the glass sides.

Aroma is coffee heavy near espresso strength, sweeter undertones integrate later, hint a lactose like sweetness but lean more towards malt like sweetness, with roast and chocolate coming through.

Taste is even more espresso like at first, trending towards the latte like mixture of coffee, roasted malt and sweet flavors from the lactose and sweeter roasted malts. Other flavors are chocolate, toffee, roast and then some cleaner bitter flavors, light earthiness.

Mouthfeel is a bit sweet, but not to the cloying level, but a nic elingering sweetness with a bitterness that snaps at the tongue.
