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.

PorterPounder (6136) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 12, 2007
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.

Sampled at room temperature. Strong alcohol aroma with a hint of roastedness. Black color, large light tan head that quickly fades to nothing. Nutty start that finishes with an alcohol bite. Mildly watery in the begining. Not alot of coffee taste for a "cappuccino" stout. Alittle creamy.

presario (4887) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 10, 2007
Trade with kmweaver. Deliciously thick creamy head on black. Strong sugary coffee aroma. Great sugary strong coffee flavour. Delicious but possibly too sweet.

OldGrowth (2906) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - MAR 8, 2007
bottle, from trade with shp555. Ok aroma. Sweet & malty. Some coffee, chocolate. little rubbing alcohol/medicine thing, hints of peat. Clean orangy brown color, ok head, minor lacing. Bittersweet flavor, Like aroma though I get a better coffee sense than from the aroma, knd of musty though. Medium to thick body, creamy oily mouthfeel that had a fizziness about it. Bitterdry finish. I got bored of this half way through, only my catholic guilt saved this from the drain. Didn’t think the cappuccino came through that well in the aroma or flavor.

Boutip (5133) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 7, 2007
Bottle courtesy of Shp555: Poured a medium black color ale with a medium dark brown foamy head with good retention. Aroma of coffee is dominating (what a surprise!!!) with some subtle bitter roasted malt. Taste is also dominated by the coffee with some roasted malt. Body is a bit light IMO with some adequate carbonation.

Nose of heavy coffee & berry, with some alcohol & medicine. Pours with a beautiful cascade. Very dark brown with garnet highlights. The tall tight wiggly creamy rocky head is mostly lasting with nice lace. The brew starts with a malty sweetness and a touch of bitterness. The sweet middle gives way to a huge coffee bitterness at the finish as the brew warms. The medium to full body is soft & creamy, the finish feels slightly alcoholic. Gave me the itis!
