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."

Baltic Porter, eh? This really comes across as an "Imperial Brown Ale", so I was curious to see what the style was. I had a draft sample at Schlaflyís Repeal of Prohibition Festival, 2012. Pours a cloudy brown color with a small beige head. Huge, toasty aroma with nuts, brown sugar, bark, dark and dried fruits, and chocolate. The flavor is equally toasty and robust, with chocolate, toast, brown sugar, wood, earth, and dried fruits. Medium-bodied, toasty as can be, with moderate carbonation. This was my "Best In Show 2012" for all the guest beers at Repeal of Prohibition, and my wifeís, too. She went back for seconds and maybe thirds.

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.

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!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled at Schlafly 2012 Repeal Fest. Another winner from Deep Ellum. Pours dark brown with a dense tan head. The aroma has lots of cocoa and cream, smooth roast, light coffee and a bit of berries - quite full and rich. Medium / full body with semi-sharp carbonation. The flavor starts out with dark berries, lots of roasted malt, chocolate and nuttiness. The finish has a bit of minerals and astringency. Good stuff here.

What is it with the animals with the bikes? I took my daughter to the circus. She said: "Daddy, how do they teach a bear how to ride a bike?" I said: Itís easy, they nail his feet to the pedals and they beat the shit out of him. Heís not riding, heís running. He just happens to be attached to the bike.
