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.

12oz bottle from the Beer Camp pack - Sierra Nevada Balloon glass
Notes taken on 07/19/2014

A: Pour is near pitch black if it weren’t for just the tiniest espresso brown sheen on it. A three finger spongy mass of dark tan forms at the top and gives a good run at retaining. Chunky splotches of scattered lace tag the glass as I make my way through the drink.

S: Smells like fresh gourmet coffee, French pressed with some gooey bakers chocolate close behind. Chalked full of toasted cereals lending some more nuttier aromatics. I get a mild dash of hop spice and a alcohol mixed in. Man this is nice and very chocolaty. Could sniff on this one for some time.

T: Earthy rich roast coffee with dark chocolate, bitter chocolate, toasted malts, and dark grain cereals. Light sharpness of hops there and the coffee gets slightly charred but not bad at all with enough sugary sweetness to deliver a really fine treat. Fairly bitter for a milk stout I would say but supremely enjoyable with good balance and the alcohol all but entirely masked. A real creamy delight with lots of chocolate roast and coffee at play.

M: Moderate to heavier body type but with a creamy lush mouth feel. Slight watery thin here and there with some mild astringency on the palate. Finish has a nice drying lift and leaves the palate slickly coated.

D: The pick of the litter, winner winner, Double Latte dinner. That seems to be the consensus at least so one can only hope they make more of this. A real nice treat and the best of the bunch. Bravo!

Pours a deep dark cola color with a darker beige creamy head,the aromas are on point with dark roast coffee,sweet lactose,char,and vanilla,to go along with some sweet alcohol,alot going on and it's all good.Creamy with sweet lactose flavors to go along with bitter chocolate and heavy roasted coffee,some char and earth keeps it from being overly sweet.Damn this is a great sweet stout with balls,the best of the Beer Camp Across American pack so far for me by a wide margin.

In a pint glass, the beer was black with a good-sized tan head. There was a bit of lace.

Aroma of coffee and chocolate. A sweet aroma. Some roasted malt.

Nice taste. Mostly dark roast coffee. Some milk chocolate.

A full-bodied beer. Great to drink for dessert.

12 oz bottle. Pours dark brown with a huge creamy tan head that retains and laces the glass.

The aroma is sweet fudgy chocolate and a lot of roast coffee.

The flavor is sweet lactic chocolate with roast coffee and a slightly harsh bitter roast finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, a nice coffee beer, I like the lactic chocolate and coffee, the finish is a bit too much harsh bitter roast.

A: Dark Brown with a nice thick head

S: Sweet coffee and chocolate are what you smell

T: Sweet yet balanced by the bitterness of the coffee and lactose

M: Nice and thick, the lactose really goes well with this by building the body up a bit and mellowing out the coffee

O: This is the best of the Beer Camp series I have had, I wish I could get this beer in my area!

fresh pour into tulip glass. looks inviting, no to bubbly, but lots of head here.. Looks lends to a creamy and bold full bodied beer. smell is definitely not Latte up front, as the label reads double latte, however I do get the coffee bean for sure. milk stout w/lactose. taste is smooth, no too boozy, roasted malts, red malts, carmel malts. some roastiness, and coffee is more apparent on the tongue more than the nose. Hops are present lending some buttering notes to the finish, more of german or english hops than american seems, which keeps the profile on point. I like the character of the beer, and the full body helps pull throughout the strong coffee and roasty flavor. Overall this beer would go well with a blackened piece of fish, bangers and mash, or Lamb stew, desserts will pair very well here.
