2014 Beer Camp Across America Release.

Inspired by the perennial cafť favorite, Double Latte combines two of the greatest things in life: good coffee and great beer. Oregonís 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, Ninkasiís first batch of beer was Total Domination IPA and it remains a must for those with a lupulin itch.

Creamy smooth, medium bodied, slight bitterness, and medium carbonation.† A very enjoyable milk stout. This needs to go into full time production.

12oz bottle poured into a snifter. The first thing that hit me in the aroma was licorice, followed by lactose, then into a slightly sweet chocolatiness, with a gentle yet still very present floral hopiness. Itís beautifully dark and bubbly. Nice espresso colored head that subsided rather quickly, with minimal lacing. The flavor is laced with strong notes of dark coffee, a little bit of licorice, with the sweet chocolate not far behind. Then it finishes with a lingering bitterness, which is almost black coffee like . It sits on the pallate well with a nice creamy mouthfeel, slight oiliness, and a good carbonation level. Itís sad that this is a one time production, I hope I have another chance to enjoy this delicious beer.

Best stout Iíve ever tasted. Unfortunately only two bottles included in the Beer Camp box from Costco. I would buy a case of only this beer.

Opened up the bottle and poured into a pub glass. Nice pouring beer, rich, creamy head. Nice clear solid back color. Strong coffee smell. Taste is java to the tenth power. Lactose is very apparent when drinking, leaving a silky feeling on the palate. Overall, a very good milk stout.

Aroma of chocolate, coffee and sweet malt. Pours a deep black. Wonderful taste with a full body of sweet coffee and a balanced bitter finish.

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.

Ninkasi was the only strategic partner brewer I was unfamiliar with in the Beer Camp pack, and I feel like Iím missing out! This is a SPECTACULARLY well-balanced stout. The roasty coffee and chocolate flavors establish themselves right away, and the coffee bitterness lasts through the aftertaste. Iím surprised how much the lactose sugars actually gave this beer a different, thicker, latte mouthfeel instead of feeling thin like some other coffee-themed beers Iíve tried. This stout has a serious, coffee flavor on par with Highland Brewing Companyís Black Mocha Stout -- which is among my favorites. Beautiful beer -- needs to be tried to be understood. Hard to describe why this coffee stout is head and shoulders above its competition -- I suspect it comes from the mouthfeel and lactose sugars.

Wow! I loved this one. I was most nervous about this one and tried it last. I love stouts but added ingredient beers have turned me off and I have to get that out of my head. Pours a black with quick dissipating no a head and lace. Little co2 and a creamy thick body. Aromaís of coffee, toasted malts, licorice, figs, prune, dark and earthy. Taste was coffee, burnt toast, heavy roasted malt, dark fruits. The finish was a burnt slightly bitter coffee. This I wish wouldnít be a one off. Wonderful!

Pours coffee-black with a nice persistent tan head. Huge roasted coffee nose with a nice bittering hop finish that rides upon a creamy, milky finish. Overall, a great sweet stout that is absolutely balanced.

Now this is what I call a stout. My number one complaint with stouts is that most of them are too watery. This beer isnít that. My crazy mind wants a really thick soupy stout, but thatís crazy and this is the perfect balance. There isnít much to the aroma, but the taste and mouthfeel is amazing. Itís got a nice chocolate and a little milky taste with hints of espresso. So far my favorite beer from the beer camp series.
