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.

Very smooth stout with great combination of flavors and a pleasant creamy mouthfeel. Flavors include roasty coffee/chocolaty flavor with a nice presence of sweetness. Good thick brown head on the beer that dissipates, leaving good lacing around the glass.

Arguably the best all around stout I have had. Definitely recommend trying it if you have the chance.

Bottle to tulip glass...the camping trip is now over

A: Jet black with a small creamy off-white head. Looks darker/thicker than I expected, excited!

S: Getting mostly roasted malts and chocolate with some coffee. Since I didn't open this fresh, I expected as much so no points off to them.

T: Much like the nose. Lots of roast goodness and bitter chocolate finishes dry, could be coffee bitterness

M: Fairly thick, as a good stout should be. Creamy

O: Best of the pack IMO. This is a great beer I wish I could pick up as a 6-er, but I'll have to enjoy it now. I wish I had opened it earlier to try and get more coffee because I just had a FBS and having a hard time picking a favorite. Fresh FBS definitely has more coffee, but I think Double Latte is thicker...oh well, they are both great so I'm a happy person!

We crack the bottle, pouring into our Great Lakes pints. It shows a dark soy sauce coloring, with glowing orbs of the deepest ruby red near the bottom and sides of the glasses. A generous three finger head of effervescent, battered cappuccino colored bubbles retains well, leaving thick, ridged patterned lacing in its stead. No haze or sediment is noted, and carbonation appears to be light. The aroma gives beautifully authentic roasted coffee notes, toffee sugars, light wheaty graininess, confectioner’s sugar sweetness, tinny metallics, lactic acidness, smoked black and chocolate malts, cinnamon and black pepper spiciness, fermented apple fruitiness, light soapy base hops, and burnt coconut husk. Following through the flavor is richly roasted bittering chocolate and blacked brown malts, raw barley, smoked tobacco leafiness, rich raw coffee beans, milky and lactic sweetness, vanilla bean, cotton, nickel, soapy and floral hop airs, black pepper, pencil woodiness, attic dust, and chocolate orange oiliness. The body is lighter, and the carbonation bubbles to match. Each sip gives hearty slurp, smack, creamy, froth, and glug. The mouth is initially cooled but then crisply dried into a crumbly tannic astringency. The abv is appropriate, and the beer disappears quickly.

Overall, this is one bold beer. The aroma hits you like a ton of bricks, and the flavoring doesn’t disappoint. While the feel is in keeping with the style, albeit a little light, it doesn’t do the strength of flavoring enough justice. You get this intense, chocolatey, coffeed, malty roast akin to your big Russian imperials, for example, but this little dinky feel to carry it. The flavoring is so present, however, that you don’t really spend that much timing worrying about it beyond a simple critique. This is the best beer of the bunch thus far, with a fantastic representation of both beer and coffee, as was intended.
