Pours pitch black with a tiny brown head. Smells of chocolate, hints of roast, and a bit smoky. Taste is chocolate, hints of smoke, and a little salty. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Deep Ellum Double Brown Stout finishes with a slight salted chocolate flavor.

Itís not a stout, people, read your beer history! :) Itís an oatmeal porter basically and follows the original meaning of the word "stout" before it was butchered (Guiness anyone?). This beer pours with a nice head, tight lacing, and looks beautiful in the light. Itís got a nice smooth, sweet taste and pairs well with a variety of food (my favorite is pork). Great mouth feel Hereís the description from the brewery: "ĎStoutí for many years meant a Porter of substantial strength and at several times and places in history the term ĎDouble Brown Stoutí has signified a variety dark, strong brews. Our favorite is the Scandinavian or Baltic version, emphasizing the chocolate-y and dark dried fruit character over the burnt or ashy roast flavors of some its cousins. Unlike most members of the Stout and Porter family, our DBS is fermented with a lager yeast (rather than ale), whose cleaner fermentation profile allows the malt and hop flavors do the talking."

Great stuff, no matter what you call it. Aromas of cocoa, brown sugar, dark fruit and earthiness. Taste is more of the same with a bit of roasted coffee bitterness.

Can. Pours a jet black color with a medium silky brown head. A smooth nose with light roast, chocolates, some metal. The flavor is rich, smooth and tasty: dark fruit, metal, dry oats and certainly spicy robust rye shine here. Comes across like a earthy big oatmeal and spicy brew. Very good. Not a Baltic in flavor, more of a straight porter or even FES.

Thanks to crajun for the trade! Can. Pours a very dark brown, almost opaque, small tan head. Aroma of roast malts and cocoa powder. The flavor is rich yet simple. Roast malt and chocolate that pretty much is what the aroma sets you up for. Not too sweet, not too bitter; well balanced.

Tap at the DEBC release party at Common Table. Pours a dark brown color that edges on black. Tab foamy head. Aroma is roasted malts, some nuts and chocolate. Coffee nose as well. Heavy roast and chocolate. Flavor is certainly chocolatey and roasty with some dark malts and grains near the finish. Rye flakes can be tasted on the finish. Flavor is very tasty. Congrats DEBC!

On tap @ the Common Table. So happy to finally have a brewery in Deep Ellum! Deep brown pour with some tan head. Aroma is nutty, roasted, and chocolatey with a hint of coffee. Big time roast flavor with more chocolate and some rye spice. Creamy and enjoyable.

On tap at The Common Table. The beer pours a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma is great, with a ton of chocolate up front and a little bit of roasted malt also mixed in. Definitely the aroma of a big, flavorful beer. The flavor doesnít disappoint. I get a lot of roasted malt and chocolate notes, as well as some oaked notes and some lactose. The beer is very creamy and all of the aroma and flavor notes seem to go very well together. Medium to thick, creamy mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
