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.

4.14/5  rDev 0%

12oz bottle packaged on 5/30/14 poured into a tulip.

Pours very dark brown with big light brown head, which fades at a medium pace. Thick and creamy head. Opaque beer. Smell is coffee and lots of coffee, some vague beeriness. And more coffee.

Taste is coffee. Slight anise, perfect sweetness balance for coffee bitterness. Dark fruit.

Mouthfeel is thick and airy. Overall, it's quite good.

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.

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Imperial Pint.

Appearance: Near black with decent tan head.

Smell: Espresso, chocolate, molasses and lactose.

Taste: Similar to the aroma, with espresso, chocolate, molasses and lactose. The difference is that there is a strong roasted bite when it first hits the tongue and on the finish.

Feel: Full, smooth and creamy body with restrained carbonation. Dry finish.

Overall: Decadent sipping Stout without resorting to crazy alcohol levels. Great job.
