4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tasted blind at Sk8vikings amazing Porter/Stout tasting - Dark brown body with red shine, light brown big bubbled head; Lots of hop , apricot and flowers (sweet ones like roses), with licorice behind, incredible balance and pleasant; Great body, well textured, soft and velvet like; Into quite long finish a bit watery, a bit thin in aroma but incredibly balanced, flowers, apricot and rose. Great balance, a bit more power without loosing the balance would make this beer perfect.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A pretty nice stout, poured with a dark brown-black color with a nice thin creamy tan head. The aroma was of coffee and chocolate with some alcohol noticeable. The flavor was full of alcohol and coffee with a relative sweetness and presence of alcohol. The latter didn’t hide, but it was enjoyable. Mouthfeel was moderate: not too thick, not too thin. Bitterness was lacking, which was a plus in my book.

22oz. bomber thanks to Lou18? Dark brown color with a small beige head. Fairly mild aroma of roasted malts, coffee and molasses. Flavor was swetter than expected, with lots of caramel, chocolate and some coffee. Decent beer, but didn’t really do that much for me.

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2006 Jimmack :06. I have waited years to get my paws on this one. And, well, it was not quite what I hoped. Do not get me wrong, I love stout and coffee. This had all the request stout nose and taste, but the end just feel off, leaving me wanting...

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bottle, via zug4abby (I think). Pours a clear dark brown with a one inch fizzy light brown head. Decent retention for being such a thin looking head. Nose is chocolate and roasted malts with some coffee, a light dry yeastiness, and some light hoppiness. Flavor has alot of roast and coffee up front with a dry hoppy finish. A little too much burnt malt character comes through making it a little harsh and grainy in the finish. Mouthfeel is fairly thin with fizzy carbonation. Slightly astringent on the finish. Overall, not my favorite beer from Lagunitas, a little too thin with an artificial flavoring type of feel to it.
