COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A proper stout to call our own...this brew is a quintessential Double Mountain interpretation of a classic style. Rich, creamy, roasty and beautifully bitter. Poured with a thick head, courtesy of nitrogen. Brewed with organic Pilsner malt, black, brown crystal malts, roasted barley and Brewers’ Gold hops. 4.5% ABV, 50 BU

Nitro draft at Brouwer’s. Dark pour, creamy head. Roast -- lots of roast. Metallic notes, a bit astringent, harsh bitterness. Light body, thin texture, smooth and all, but not a lot going on here. Honestly, I’d prefer Guinness.

Eh. This one is bitter, very thin body and kind of watery. Coffee straight through that overpowers any other present flavors.

Black and creamy off nitro. Bitter bitter up front. Chocolate dominates along with dry hoppy bitterness.

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 10, 2013
Draft at the source. Deep maroon briwn color, beige head with good retention and solid lacing. Aroma of cocoa powder, coffee grounds. Taste is dark coffee, bitter cocoa, fairly dry finish. Tasty.

GT2 (7899) - Carlsbad, California, USA - OCT 17, 2013
Nitro at Bailey’s in Portland, OR. Clear, deep red. Sheets of nitro lacing. Nose is savory, black crayon, charcoal. Taste is dusty, soil, earthy, ashy. Papery, dry body. Simple, drinkable.

On tap. Black with a thick tan head. Scent is roasted malts and chocolate. Taste is roasty as well, with coffee and chocolate. Thin Very good!

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - FEB 11, 2012
Nitro pour. Creamy brown head. Aroma of roast and caramel. Taste is roasty, kind of funny burnt. I don’t think it would be as odd if it was not nitro, but I tend to not like the more watery texture of a nitro pour. I’d like to try this with CO2 and see what it’s like then.

dchmela (2564) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 22, 2011
Tap at the brewery. Black and thick with a creamy tan head. Dry roasted grain aroma with a touch of chocolate peaking through. Nice roasted grain, chocolate taste and hints of coffee. Body is nice and creamy with a little dryness. Well done brew.

Hophazard (193) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 28, 2011
Roastiness and faint chocolate on the nose. Nearly black with creamy khaki head. Semi-sweet roasty flavor with a light bitterness on teh finish. Creamy velvet texture compliments of nitrogen. Good drinking stout.

UPDATED: MAR 21, 2010 Draft @ Naked City- dense black with creamy tan head; served pretty cold and creamy on first sip; nutty roast and creamy milk chocolate; silky smooth and spot on for the style; doesn’t fall into a super sweet mess; roasty, chocolate, light and smooth; good stuff; I wonder if my hard liver beers are ready yet?
