bomber. Pours dark brown with ruby highlights and a medium sized brown head that dissapates. Aroma of chocolate and just a bit of coffee. Taste is sweet chocolate with an aftertaste of coffee. Very nice.

Bottled. Thanks Fredrik.
Dark brown colour with a redish tint. Pretty creamy light brown head. Sweet malty aroma with notes of chocolate. Flavour is chocolatey with a hint of sourness from toast malts but no coffee was sensed.
Bottle was 1/2 year old.

UPDATED: NOV 24, 2007 Good with a croissant and morning paper. Not as thick as some other great stouts, but no wimp either. Perfectly balanced with a very subtle coffee flavor. Head reminiscent of actual cappuccino. Wonderful beer! Sweet and hoppy. Great off-white head. Yum!

This beer has a huge coffee smell and taste to it. Nice smooth feel to it. As it warmed, it seemed to bring out more of the malt and chocolate. I did find hard to tell this apart from many of the other chocolate/coffee stouts though, but still like it

Found at the local store and decided it would be a great addition to a weekend’s breakfast. Pours out black with a moderate sized bubbly tan head. Aroma of coffee and slight chocolate. Taste is very well balanced with coffee, caramel, roasted malt and slight chocolate. Nice Mouthfeel Solid

the aroma was very full and rich, lots of chocolate, marshmallow, carmel, and espresso (dark roast) with some walnut. whoa. flavor is way dark and bitter espresso flavor that’s a bit too harsh for my palate (and i drink coffee like it’s water). not much of the carmel or marshmallow flavor, but the walnut and dark chocolate carry over.

This stout was poured with a black body and a tan kakhi head. This smell of coffee is just a headstart of what you taste. Coffee is very prominent which is a good thing. This one is for you Duane. I wish I could of had a beer with you.

I was a bit disappointed. I thought this would have been a HUGE beer, but it was instead pretty bland. The Cappuccino was almost lost in the beer. Could have just been called "stout" and nobody would have noticed the difference.

UPDATED: FEB 13, 2010 Rerate Much more chocolaty and coffee goodness this time around, good earthy, black dirt aromaOriginal 3.1 Savannah, Ga. - Habersham Beverage Warehouse. - 22 oz bottle. Dark ruby red to black pour with a nice creamy mocha colored head that leaves a healthy coat of lacing. Faint chocolaty aroma with some fresh lake water accents. Flavor has some coffee notes, bittersweet chocolate and decent roastiness. Mouthfeel is extremely thin for the syle and ABV. Expected much more from Lagunitas - usually much more solid than this.
