Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BeerAficionadoMCMXC on 07-02-2014

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.

this has been sitting in my fridge for a WHILE. from the 2014 beer camp variety pack.

A: pours a very dark brown. head is a brownish off-white. frothy, but doesn't last long.

S: aroma is laden with chocolate. coffee is in there too, but not nearly as intense as the

T: flavor follows similar to the aroma, heavy on the dark bittersweet chocolate flavor. a bitter coffee flavor comes into the finish. complex. earthy.

M: the lactose adds a really nice creamy mouthfeel to the beer that is perfectly fitting for the style.

D: overall a fine take on the style and tasty brew from the variety pack. i usually don't desire stouts like this until it is colder outside, hence why i waited so long to drink this. some of the coffee might have faded, but the brew is still solid.

Inspired by the perennial cafe favorite, Double Latte combines two great things: coffee and beer. Oregon's Ninkasi Brewing knows their way around a good cup of joe. Featuring cold-press coffee from legendary Stumptown Coffee Roasters and a dose of milk sugar, this coffee milk stout is a rich and roasty treat. Brewed in the style of a milk stout. Available in single 12 oz. bottles as part of the Beer Camp Across America 2014 Variety pack and on limited draft.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle to a Sierra Nevada tulip glass. Served above 62 degrees Fahrenheit.

(Appearance) Pours a soft foamy head of a mocha cream color over a near black body. Retention is very good and lacing is light and streaked. 4.25

(Smell) The roasted coffee bean aroma comes forward first, generating notes of earth and delicate fruit, with lesser characters of a malt body, light caramel, light roasted malt ,milk chocolate and dark sugars with a touch of lactose sweetness for some cream and sugar. Potency is modest. 3.75

(Taste) The roasted malt is more forward in the flavor, lightly toasted caramel bread, cocoa and soft lactose for a modest coffee base, finishing with a lingering earthy bitterness of coffee bean accented with subtle notes of fruit which accounts for significant enough balance to maintain interest. The depth of flavor may resemble more of a cup of black coffee over a brewed latte, but the balance comes forth better at warmer temperatures, cutting through some of the bitter edge. 4

(Mouthfeel) The texture is lightly chewy, silky, clean and mildly dry. Carbonation is mellow, generating a medium frothiness and a very soft crisp finish for a light creamy mouthfeel overall. The body is medium+ for the style, shy of heavy overall. Balance is nearly even earthy bitter to sweet, although bitterness wins out by a hair. Alcohol presence is mild and there are no notable off characters. 4.5

(Overall) My grand finale of the Beer Camp Across America 2014 Variety pack is a roundly satisfactory stout. A solid and clean-cut malt profile is compensated with a bitterness almost entirely sourced by the usage of coffee beans, generating more delicate flavor characteristics for a fuller coffee flavor. Stouts are becoming increasingly more difficult to distinguish as superior over other quality stouts, and only the truly unique seem to be recognized above the rest. I find it a bit more formulaic than other entries in the Beer Camp collection and have had many coffee stouts before, although I appreciate the balance and range of coffee flavor that Double Latte produces through the bean. Plays nicely for a middle gravity stout, but there is certainly great potential to amplify the malt body for a deserving imperial treatment. I would not be surprised if this beer is many people's choice winner of the entire pack, and it would be a highly popular choice to rebrew this for widespread distribution. 4

Bottle poured into a Sierra Nevada imperial pint glass

A: Pours deep brown with a slight ruby hue and a creamy brown head that settles and laces well.

S: Dark chocolate, coffee, maybe a hint of dark fruit.

T: Follows the nose with rich dark chocolate and coffee, nice roasted malt, lactose sweetness, and maybe a touch of earthy hops.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation, silky smooth.

O: This is easily my favorite from the case and probably more along the lines of what we expected. Love it!

Brewed with Two-row Pale, Caramel, Brown, and Chocolate malts, coffee from Stumptown, and Lactose. Hopped with Nugget.
7.6% ABV, OG=20.4P, FG=6.8, 60 IBUs.

Pours out to a clear black, forming a small light tan head with poor retention and sparse lacing. Carbonation is medium, ~2.5. Nose is potent with coffee, milk chocolate, black walnut. Cleanly fermented. Taste is quite nice...opens with a brash display of coffee, followed by a chewy malt body and a nicely balanced level of roast, medium bitterness, a little residual sweetness, some mild roast acidity, and a firm hop flavor in the finish. Mouthfeel is a little acidic between the roast and coffee and hops.

This is a nice stout. I've had many beers, however, that taste exactly like this. I think coffee stouts need a big body to stand up to the coffee flavor, and this isn't quite chewy enough for me.
