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.

3.94/5  rDev -4.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Consumed 1/27/15

A: Nearly black at first glance, more of a deep, dark brown upon inspection, with some dark brown around the edges - pours with a small, light brown head, fades to a few wisps of a cap and leaves some spotty lacing

S: Dark chocolate and roasty coffee - nice range of chocolate, with some dark chocolate, semisweet chocolate, and brownies - nicely burnt, with some chocolate malts - really nice coffee aroma, very roasty - hints of the lactose underneath the bold chocolate and coffee aromas - lightly nutty with some caramel and caramelized malts

T: Chocolate, coffee, and some nice sweetness for balance - big chocolate flavors, with dark chocolate, semisweet chocolate, milk chocolate, and cocoa - nice dark roast coffee flavor, roasty and lightly burnt - moderate level of burnt overall, with just a hint of char - the milky, lactose sweetness cuts through the darker elements and works well - some caramel, molasses, and toffee sweetness as well

M: Medium body, maybe on the thin side, nicely carbonated, some residual stickiness from the lactose, would be better if it were slightly maltier

O: Like an iced mocha latte... except actually worth drinking

I saved this Beer Camp beer for last with hopes that it would be a proper goodbye to camp. I am happy to find that it is. I am a sucker for beers that manage to taste like dessert without tasting like they are going to cause some form of rapid-onset diabetes. Other than some issues with the mouthfeel, this is one of my favorites from the Beer Camp pack.

from the Beer Camp box, poured into a pint at cellar temp.

Look: Lignite Brown only when backlit, otherwise seemingly black with a thick mocha head and impressive lacing.

Smell: Hershey's chocolate bars with a moderate dark roast coffee

Taste: chocolate syrup sweetness with coffee grounds bitterness

Feel: decent body

Overall: very good stout

Bottle poured into a wine glass. The Doubl Latte pours nearly black in color with deep mahogany brown highlights. Offers good clarity and a thin cap of bubbly mocha foam. Settles out to a thing surface ring bit too swiftly.

Aromas of roasted malts dominate along with some cold brewed coffee and a touch of chocolate with some warming. Taste notes are similar and finish with a coarse spice character then a lingering roast coffee flavor. More cold coffee notes after settling but a return to rich roasted malts with some agitation. Overall better than I feared, that being too much on the coffee side of the equation, which is why I hesitated till now. Actually straddles the beer/coffee line nicely, and hides its ABV like a ninja.

Dark, black color with a tan head and decent lacing. Smell is of coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malt, light cream sweetness, and milk chocolate. Taste follows the nose with big coffee and roasted malt flavors, touch of creamy sweetness balances mid palate and finishes mildly bitter with dark and milk chocolate flavors. Creamy mouthfeel with a medium body. Overall I enjoyed this one, nice coffee flavored milk stout.

12 oz bottle with a packaged date of 30 May 2014.

This dark brown ale looks essentially black and opaque in th glass and is topped by a durable and very creamy tan head.

Aroma: fine mix of coffee and dark roasted grains in nearly equal measure. Only a faint hint of dark fruits and char.

Flavor: Excellent bitter-sweet balance: mildly bitter in keeping with the coffee and dark roasted grains but definitely bitter for a milk stout. Lingering aftertaste of black coffee, light smoke and black bread.

Feel: medium body is creamy smooth despite near medium carbonation. Carbonation is higher than average for style but nicely soft.

O: excellent and certainly one of the best, if not the best, of the dozen 2014 special SN Beer Camp releases.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a snifter. Moderate carbonation. 1 finger caramel colored head. Dark beer with some nice lacing.

Aroma is a major hit of coffee. This is totally the dominate aroma. The coffee is dark very toasty almost burnt. Minor smell of hops, vanilla, and tobacco.

I disagree that this is a sweet stout... It's not. Good carbonation up front makes the beer drinkable. Definitely coffee forward. Dark, roasty, almost burnt espresso. Wet oak, tobacco flavor, and that bitterness associated with such burnt ingredients. Hop bitterness is also present at the end. I don't get a creamy mouthfeel or any milk flavor at all. The beer is dry with really no sweetness. I think this would be an excellent barrel aged beer!!!

Overall pretty decent beer. Not worth buying the pack for it ( or really any of the beers in the collection). I would pair it with Korean BBQ short ribs or cola braised pork chops.I give it 87/100.
