Style: American Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.60%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our rich, decadent coffee stout. This one's soft cocoa flavors open up to reveal a richly complex treat. We taste flavors of chocolate cake, "coffee candy", milk chocolate, with heaps of vanilla. A pungent & distinct coffee stout for sure! A rich, sweet, and less roasty base beer contributes the ideal backdrop to this bold and vibrant treat for the coffee and beer lover alike!

Pours a pitch black color with a dark brown head, slowly fading down to a thicker ring of lacing.

Smells of oily seeweed and soy sauce enriched coffee with a huge impact of spicy molasses and modest earth. Has a layer of rich dark chocolate to it, together with some caramel and dried wild berries.

Has a smooth and soft mouthfeel with a well developed, sparkly carbonation, resulting in a smooth, lighter bodied beer.

Tastes of molasses covered coffee beans from the very beginning with a subtle toffee sweetness balancing a wooden dryness. Has a slick, almost cloying mouthfeel with scorched malts and balancing caramel. Finishes spicy and earthy at the same time with a calming coffee presence, providing more molasses, rock sugar and smoky bakers chocolate.

Well made coffee stout with a complex coffee infusion, establishing a slick, point on, shorter lasting flavor composition.

Balanced, Costa Rican coffee. Not wise to drink after an Affogotta

Earthy coffee, baker's chocolate. Pretty tasty but not obviously better than Speedway Stout.

Double Shot Christmas 2017 vintage. I sat on this one for a few months, which is kind of a stupid thing - further evidence that my cellar is tremendously out of control.

Drank side by side with Impermanence, which was a bit of a surprising experience in several ways. My expectations were quite high for Double Shot - though Impermanence ended up being the true star of the show.

Double Shot features quite a lot of coffee, obviously - the nose and taste are a slurry of rich, smooth, creamy coffee and chocolate. It's very clean, though it is a bit thin. The nose is likely my favorite element of the beer.

While I'm a fan, I kept thinking, "This really isn't that far separated from Founders Breakfast Stout". I'm not convinced that this is really that worthy of a trade - I like the beer, but there are just so many offerings on the market now that are as good or better. Impermanence is definitely my preference of these two beers.
