October 24th, 2014 - Deep Ellum’s Double Brown Stout is a welcome craft beer here in College Station, where macro lagers are still in fashion. But change is in the wind, and part of the smell is chocolate. Milk chocolate to be precise, wafting from this deep, dark brew. With a clotted heat of auburn foam, this beer looks chewy, but the body (and in disagreement with other Ratebeer reviewers here) is on the thinner side. The light carbonation and thin body allow a single dominant note of malt and chocolate malt balls to express with clarity, but it is not a deep, dark, sullen beer, but a quick hit of chocolate, single and simple. My overall impression is that this is a *fine* beer, made tastier by being in something of a craft beer desert, but that it doesn’t quite reach the complexity that a stout can achieve.

Temple, Txl - Spec’s Liquors - 12 oz can - dark reddish brown pour with a tight off-white head. Aroma has some molasses, some port-like notes. Rich, full-bodied flavor with some chocolate notes, a touch of port, some sweet dates, a touch of red wine. Mouthfeel has a nice thick smoothness to it. Nice belly warmer - even though it is over 90° out at 10:00 at night here in Central Texas. LinusStick (3514) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 7, 2016
Very nice Baltic Porter courtesy one of my past Secret Santas. Aroma was nice right out of the can. Milk and dark chocolate with a hint of toffee. Pour was a deep dark brown/near black with a thin tan film for a head. Taste was good. Strong chocolate and burnt caramel flavors with a nice black licorice background. Very complex for a 7% beer. Actually tastes stronger than that, be that good or bad. Nice carbonation. Twostal (42) - - MAR 28, 2016
Pour from a can. Very dark pour with creme head. Aroma of can. Flavor of can. Very disappointed SG111 (2034) - New York, USA - MAR 24, 2016
Tap at the source. Pours dark brown, nice tan head. Aroma is nice roasted malts, chocolate. Flavor is similar. Very nutty too. I like it of the style. Solid.

Tap - fair size foamy head, almost black color, much more balanced than I expected, good dark (but not roasty) malt aroma and flavor with a good size kick of citrus hops and the clean finish, really good overall

Aroma is a bit phenolic, rubber, oatflakes. Taste is burnt breadcrust, bakery. Light. Way too light. Meh. Beerhunter111 (22513) - P´Castle, GERMANY - FEB 28, 2016
