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.

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.

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.
