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.

Lukaduke (2192) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUL 27, 2014
Pours a deep burnt umber color with two fingers of khaki foam. The nose is a nice blend of sweet bakers chocolate, smooth coffee and some earthy light smoked malt. The palate is smooth and creamy with nice balance of bittersweet chocolate, medium roasted malt and tons of coffee flavor. Pretty solid offering.

Poured Poured a black color with aromas of cold pressed coffee, grounds, light earth and some light espresso. Flavors followed suit with bitter coffee in the aftertaste, a little thin and not much sweetness, a touch of vanilla thrown in as well.

12oz bottle from Downer Wine and Spirits. Pours a deep, dark brown color with a tan head and some lacing. Aroma is malty, chocolate, coffee. Medium to heavy on the palate with creamy carbonation. Flavor is bittersweet, chocolate, bitter espresso, maybe some pine hops, a little nutty, some toast, with a bitter, chocolate finish. Very nice.

madvike (2733) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 26, 2014
Bottle - Pours black with a creamy tan head. Nose is roasty with chocolate notes and milk sugar. Not tons of coffee--just dark roast and dark chocolate. Taste is...well, there’s the coffee. Dark and rich, with lots of dark chocolate and dry roast. A little ashy, but that’s cut by the milk sugar. Dark roasty finish, pretty bitter. Silky and full in the mouth. Great stuff.

Passthebeer (25) - Manassas, Virginia, USA - JUL 26, 2014
Great espresso nose with hints of chocolate. This is full of flavor! The lactose really smoothes the finish and makes it a "heavy beer" that you could have multiple pints of.

12 ounce bottle, part of the Beer Camp Across America 12-pack. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours dark brown/black with about a 2 inch tan head that sticked around for a long time. There’s also a good amount of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like coffee, bittersweet chocolate, lactose/cream, and some nuts. I think the taste is mostly just like the aroma, but there’s also some vanilla noticeable too. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s smooth and creamy with moderate carbonation. This is tied for being my favorite beer in the Beer Camp 12 pack. I’d like to see this brew brought back at some point!

DrSilverworm (6401) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 26, 2014
12oz bottle. Packaged 5/30/14. Black color, with a nice thicker light brown head. Good retention. Leaves nice thicker lace. Great coffee, creme, chocolate flavor. Like a burnt caramel flavor to it. Little dark fruit. Moderate sweet taste, light to moderate bitter. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of crisp lighter carbonation. A little bit thinner and more watery than I’d like, maybe. More slick finish. Nice coffee milk stout. Works pretty well. I don’t drink lattes, but this reminds me of those sweet coffee drinks... Not too sweet for me, though, thankfully. The coffee addition is very nice.

JMerritt (1803) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - JUL 26, 2014
Bottled. Very dark brown, bordering black, with a smallish light-brown head. Rather pronounced iced coffee nose - slightly nutty and a little green. Lightly bitter flavor - some coffee, roasted nuts, light char. I don’t pick up much in the way of sweetness that I’d attribute to milk sugar. Brightly carbonated with small bubbles. Dry finish that ends with notes of light wood.
