Today on TBD - 14, Sierra Nevada's Double Latte. It is a coffee milk stout that was made in collaboration with Ninkasi Brewing Company out of Eugene, OR.
"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."
"Double Latte is a cold-press milk stout featuring roasted grain, amazing coffee, and a sweet coffee-chocolate-mocha-like flavor. A play on the milk in a classic latte, lactose or “milk sugar” helps produce a robust, rich body and a sweet malty backbone in this beer."
My impression is that: This is another dark offering in this 12 pack and in my opinion it is probably one of the best stouts I have had! It has a rich roasted aroma and it even smells like it would be thick and creamy. Man it's oh so smooth, you can really detect the coffee flavor and milk sugar. However this in no way take away from it's rich chocolate stout beer appeal. This is one seriously thick smooth beer, the drinkability of this brew is without question. I could easily have a couple of these with no regret. Overall I love this beer, I enjoy a lot of different types of beers and typically you'll find an IPA in my hands as my daily brew. This happens to be one of those occasions in which a beer company, or two, has really brought their A game and knocked one out of the park. It has a 7.6% ABV so it will set you up right after having just a couple. This is the 12th beer in the 12 pack, I have to admit that all of them have been very enjoyable and am looking forward to next year when hopefully they do it all over again. I can't wait, until then I am sure that I will be able to find plenty of beers to review and will gladly give you my humble impression of each of them. Until next TBD, enjoy!
