Nice roasty stout. Aroma and flavors of coffee, chocolate, roasted malt, and a little bit of hops, caramel and woody notes. Nice flavor, but a tad thin.

loweredsixth (946) - Clovis, California, USA - DEC 28, 2006
Dark brown (semi-opaque) color with a large off-white head. The aroma and flavor definitely had strong coffee tones, but underneath that were some slightly burnt, woody tones...some smoke. The feel was rather thin, but still quite pleasant. I was eager to try this, and while it is a good stout it was certainly nothing spectacular.

Cliff (399) - The Land of Milk and Honey, Ohio, USA - DEC 28, 2006
22 oz bottle. Poured a very, very dark brown with a thin off white head. i was expecting a lot of coffee in this baby and got no more than what is in any other stout, which was disappointing. As a regular stout, it wasn’t bad, nice malty toasty flavor with a crisp bitterness. Medium mouthfeel with an uneventful finish. If your gonna call this a Cappucino stout, it better have a coffee kick to it and this one didn’t.

Beaver (1282) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 28, 2006
22 oz bottle. Pours a dark brown with red highlights. It has a bubbly tan head that quickly recedes the a thin film that leaves some lacing.

The aroma is grainy coffee and sweet lactic chocolate with a little dark fruitiness and tobacco.

The flavor is lots of roasted coffee and black licorice with a little sweetness and a big bitter tobacco-like finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full and creamy.

Overall, a decent coffee stout. As I drank, more licorice and tobacco came out that I didn’t really care for.

Really, this has to be one of the best stouts I’ve had. I’ve never been a big fan of other lagunitas beers, but this cappaccino stout is definitely sublime. Try it with a fat cigar, and you will be in heaven.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - DEC 25, 2006
Pours almost black with a red hue at the edges. Tan head falls to a film. Pleasant milky malt aroma. Definitly hints of brewed coffee, slightly chocolatey. Smooth body, with a slightly bubbly mouthfeel, but still somewhat creamy. Smooth kilned malts bringout nice milk chocolate, subtley sweet flavor. Darker earthy notes showup later with suggestions of tobacco, and roasty espresso flavors, yet there is a milky silkyness that sustains a balance. Decent bitter finish. A nice and well balanced stout.

GuilTTy (728) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - DEC 24, 2006
Pours a clear chestnut under a thinner than expected light brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee and chocolate. Flavor stays true to the aroma with dark chocolate taking more of a leading role but strongly supported by coffee, cherry cordials and roasted malt. Hops make a grand entrance just before the finish which is otherwise long and tasty. Alcohol very well hidden.

reddish-brown, clear, creamy beige head. aroma is obviously big on the coffee with notes of alcohol and a citrusy earthy hoppiness with a good swirl. flavor is initially bitter, with slight to moderate roastiness. not nearly as much coffee in the flavor as there is in the aroma. more alcohol in the flavor.
