The third and final beer at the Deep Ellum Brewery. This is the foray Deep Ellum beer I had. It;s solid, bit somewhat unspectacular.

The beer is a deep, dark brown. Almost black. Once again , I wish I was drinking this from a better glass than a Shaker pint.

The taste is like a big porter. It has a chocolatey taste with a smoky finish. There's also a nittiness in this that reminds me of the (512) Pecan Porter. In fact, I think that's the best comparison for this beer. It's the Pecan Porter of Deep Ellum, but it's different on the dryness and sharpness. I'd usually prefer the Pecan Porter, but I wouldn't be sad to see this on my glass. Solid, but not great.

The CANQuest (TM) is now over 1,000 CANned beer reviews, thanks in part to JenRay, who also sent this one to me in support of the ongoing madness. I am reading Akashic Books' "Lone Star Noir" with "Dallas Noir" on deck, and although beer and noir do NOT mix, I am throwing caution and sanity to the wind and pressing ahead.

From the CAN: "Stout as in 'Stout Porter,' a strong Oatmeal Porter"; "Brewed and Bottled [struck out] CANNED by Deep Ellum Brewing Co."

A solid Crack! was followed by an inverted Glug, resulting in both a pseudo-cascade and two rocky fingers of deep-tan, NOT deep ellum, head with good retention. Color was a deep, dark-brown (SRM = 44), allowing only minimal light penetration at the edges. Nose had a roastiness underlain by a light chocolatiness. I just had chocolate chip oatmeal for breakfast this morning and I am beginning what has happened to me as a self-avowed hophead. Mouthfeel was medium and the taste was VERY roasty, initially, giving 'way to a pleasant smoky chocolatiness. My my. I just looked at the style - a Baltic Porter! The site's descriptor for the style mentions "bitter" and "acidic", both of which I experienced, especially on the finish. It was much akin to a cup of coffee. Wow! Good stuff. One would probably be plenty for me, but YMMV.

A: Darkness and a brown head. As usual!

S: Sweet chocolate, malt, caramel, raisin, yeast, and char.

T: Like the nose- the chocolate is extremely prominent. Reminds me of Chokolat by Southern Tier but not quite as sweet. This one has a nice burnt taste to balance the sweetness though, which is nice. I am surprised at how good this is, not in a bad way. Also, some raisin notes and caramel.

M: Medium with some good carb. Creamy.

O: This was actually an awesome beer. I live in Texas and am usually not too blown away by the locals, but I like this one a lot and will definitely get it again.

Pour: this is virtually black, with a perfect- looking tan foam top. Guinesslike in appearance.
The smell is another story. I have to "stretch" my nose here, but when i do I just get a pukey waft of I don't know what. Is that even chocolate trying to poke through? Surprising. I'll just leave it at that and hope everything else somehow lines up in this pint glass (via can).
Tastes better than the scent. I suppose the earthy nutty roast translated poorly to me into the aroma, but here it starts off decent tasting, but then finishes much more nicely with chocolate and nothing dry. Choco-hazelnut if anything. Feels great though. Creamy enough, mild stickiness yet not so thick. Finishes well, sweet with nutty overtones. Solid brewery.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A- dark chocolate/coffee. very little head that fades quickly. nice lining when settled.

s- bitter sweet coffee. brown sugar with a hint of nuts.

t- robust coffee and chocolate. it's surprisingly refreshing.

m- medium heft/carbonation. doesn't stick around long after swallowed.

o- i think it's a solid beer. if i were out and about and wanted a stout this would be a top choice, just not the top choice. i think deep ellum brewing company did a great job with the Double Brown Stout.

Atmosphere is pretty good. Light head, and no real lacing. Nose is chocolate, coffee, and peat. Pungent and a little sweet, chocolate, raisin, and coffee. A little boozy feeling. Overall, this is a good quaff.

Can pour at the DTLA bottle share held at Beer Belly in Los Angeles, CA.

Thanks to ricecracker420 for sharing this one.

Pours a hazy crimson-brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, toasted oat, and chocolate syrup aromas. Taste is much the same with malt, oat, and cocoa flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a smell that is much better than the taste.
