COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
2014 Beer Camp Across America Release.

Inspired by the perennial café favorite, Double Latte combines two of the greatest things in life: good coffee and great beer. Oregon’s Ninkasi Brewing knows their way around a good cup of joe. Featuring cold-press coffee from the legendary Stumptown Coffee Roasters and a dose of milk sugar, this coffee milk stout is a rich and roasty treat.

This young-gun brewery has a locomotive charge. A rich conversation at a local bottle shop in 2005 has morphed into a Pacific Northwest staple. Named after the Sumerian goddess of fermentation, Ninkasi’s first batch of beer was Total Domination IPA and it remains a must for those with a lupulin itch.

On tap at Beer Camp Across America southeast. Pours a deep brownish black on tap with thick tan head that leaves good lace. Aroma of nice coffee and roast up front, a solid milky sweet chocolate finish. Taste follows, rich and smooth. Good carbonation, creamy mouth, very nice. This may have been my favorite of the bunch.

Although I think this drinks more like a porter than a stout, I found it very enjoyable. The aroma and flavor is packed with coffee. A very smooth and creamy beer, with a touch of smokiness.

Black/brown pour with tan head and lace. Aroma is huge espresso and a toucho chocolate. Flavor is the same espresso as the nose along with some chocolate. Medium body with good carbonation. Nice well done beer and coffee what more could you ask for

superspak (3073) - Michigan, USA - AUG 3, 2014
12 ounce bottle into snifter, bottled on 5/30/2014. Pours fairly pitch black color with a 1 finger dense tan head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toast, roasted malt, cream, light vanilla, light caramel, and roasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt, coffee, and lactose notes; with good strength. Taste of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, toast, cream, light vanilla, light caramel, dark bread, light char, and roasted earthiness. A fair amount of roasted coffee bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, cream, light vanilla, dark bread, light char, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and robustness of dark/roasted malt, coffee, and lactose flavors; with a great roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, moderately creamy, and lightly chalky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent coffee stout. All around great complexity and balance of dark/roasted malt, coffee, and lactose flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

Bottle. Shared with my father in law over dinner. Pours a deep and creamy brown with big tan/brown head. Aroma is roasted chocolate and coffee. Taste is sweet cream coffee, milk chocolate and warm milk, though cool. One of the better beers in this box for sure.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a dark brown, black color with a nice creamy tan head. Nice clinging lace. Rich cocoa and coffee aroma. Really smells like a latte. Bittersweet creamy roasted malt flavor. Lot’s of coffee flavor here. Sweet and roasty. Very nicely done.

Rich mocha flavor. Chocolate milk. Spicy roast malt. Bright. Coffee is nice and not too acidic. Round, good use of palate. Good body and frothy carbonation. Lingering sweetness and mocha. Nice one, but maybe not fully balanced. I might tone down the coffee and sweetness for my taste.
