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.

Misc.: Collaboration with Ninkasi Brewing Company; Packaged May 30, 2014 at 3 p.m.

Poured a very dark brown, almost pitch black color with 1-2 fingers of frothy, tan head. Uneven, semi-layered spiderweb foamy lacing along the sides of the glass. Average-to-above average retention. (Sight - 3.88)

Smelled boozy Special Dark Hershey Bar, roasted toffee and caramel, black coffee malts, roasty nuts and espresso. Booziness tapers out late. (Smell - 4.13)

Tasted similar to the nose. Got roasted coffee beans, caramel, toffee, roasted nuts, bitter Special Dark Hershey Bar, sweet sugary chocolate and dark cocoa nibs. (Taste - 3.88)

Full-to-medium body. Slick texture. Average carbonation. Long, bitter, slightly warming finish. (Feel - 4.25)

A pretty decent milk stout overall. Very nice for the winter. Would have it again for sure. (Overall - 4.00)

I enjoyed this 12oz bottle chilled in a snifter

The color is black, opaque like an 8ball with thin tan cream head with ultra fine bead with spots of lace that collect randomly. The smell has lots of coffee up front fresh smelling with a creamy/roasty mix of aromas with a cocoa type sweet malt odor with a coffee candy type smooth roasted rich and full aroma. The feel is excellent with smooth yet medium roast texture with moderate carbonation and medium sweetness level with slight char and dry texture in the finish with almost no alcohol in the feel.

This stout has great coffee flavor which matches the aroma with a roasted and somewhat sweet taste with plenty of light milk chocolate flavor -nice caramel in the malt with light toast flavors to compliment the bean taste. There is a sort of Iced French roasted coffeee with cream in that there is a deep roast or smokiness in the background with a slight char flavor which is pleasant alongside the creaminess from the lactose with a mild woody accent perhaps of hops with a light vanilla type earthy flavor. The malt depth is easy to savor with only a mild amount of alcohol creeping in as it warms but the coffee flaovr and roasted malt supporting has a relatively low bitterness that lasts into the dry finish.

Overall I am glad I was able to try this -a wonderful coffee stout just carries a smooth roast flavor with low bitterness in the bean all the way and very drinkable and still intense considering it is a relatively low abv milk stout. I loved trying this and would drink it year round

Had this on-tap a while ago and now taking some notes on my bottle.

A- Oily, nightshade black pour to a tumbler and a wine glass split two ways. A massive, thick and creamy medium mocha head to above two fingers with amazing retention. Lacing forms in large sheets and webs all over the glass.

S- Coffee is first and foremost but has a rich feel to it; not thin and forced feeling as it blends right in. Cocoa powder, medium-dark roast grains and toasted nutty grains back the coffee.

T- As with the nose, the coffee is the star of the show but does not overshadow the rest of the beer or feel over the top. It is balanced out by rich notes of chocolate, roasted barley, slight caramel and toasted nuts. Yeast is impressively clean for a bigger brew; just a hint of dark fruits.

MF- Medium-thick bodied and probably a shade towards the latter with a frothy overall consistency. Carbonation is at a medium level and adds to the decadence of flavor. Finishes with a roasty coffee chocolate bitterness.

My last review from the Beer Camp mixed pack. I really enjoyed the experience and thought the choice of styles and brewers was great. Yea there were no "whales/loonz" in the box but it was still probably the best mixed pack ever made.

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.
