Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - NOV 21, 2007
2007 bottle, 8.3% ABV. Pours a very dark mahogany color. Glows clear chestnut brown when held to a strong light source. A dense, foamy, light brown head crowns the top momentarily, but quickly subsides to just a tiny rim. Sudsy lacing mostly rejoins the body. The aroma is a blend of dark caramel, chocolate, strong coffee, and cream. A touch of vanilla and molasses are also detectable. Smells pretty sweet and just slightly alcoholic. The flavor is all bakers chocolate and fresh coffee up front, with contrasting burnt caramel sweetness and hop bitterness on the back end. Mouthfeel is thin for the style and slightly sticky. I would classify this one as a sweet stout. Decent beer, but Lagunitas does hoppy IPAs and ASAs so much better than they do stouts.

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - NOV 18, 2007
2007 Bottle labled 8.3%abv. Pours black with a small but lasting tan head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of coffee, roasted malt, and light caramel. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium slightly thin mouthfeel with a moderate amount of bitterness and well hidden alcohol. Very good

Pour is dark, near pitch black. Nice small tan head. Aroma is of coffee and slight hops with a hint of chocolate. Smooth coffee and subtle alcohol taste. Paired perfectly with my cheesecake. Another good beer from lagunitas :)

jblendy (519) - Hawthorne, New Jersey, USA - NOV 16, 2007
07 bottle labeled 8.3%abv. Pours fairly dark brown with a moderate tan head. Aromas of fresh ground coffee, lactic sugars, a nice woody undertone, and perfumed accents (probably the hops). Lots of black coffee and dark chocolate up front, followed by some creamy lactic notes and very subtle bitterness, but overall a bit light. Palate is medium/full, slightly sharp carbonation, and a bit oily/sticky, with a fairly long finish. Killer for the price, but a bit light in flavor for my expectations.

UPDATED: JAN 7, 2010 beautiful pour. medium to large cream tan head. dark dark brown color with a little red tint to it. nose of coffee and a bit of citrus. great texture. tastes like a big frosty glass of alcoholic cocoa... in a good way. Im becoming a big Lagunitas fan.

darbish (115) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 14, 2007
A very delicious beer. Dont be scared off by the "cappuccino" name, it tastes like coffee but only for the first sip or two. Otherwise, its a pretty mild coffee flavor. Smells malty and coffe-ish, and is reminiscent of a porter. Very good, very good!

redlight (2318) - Orlando, Florida, USA - NOV 13, 2007
My bottle says 8.3 ABV doesnt smell like 8.3% abv! Smooth coffee flavor, roasted malts, dark malts, licorrice, molasses and caramely! Very smooth coffee stout.

22 oz. bottle. Pours black with a medium sized tan head. The aroma is roasted malts, some coffee, and light chocolate with a hint of hops. The Flavor has coffee and roasted malts. Nothing that really stands out, just decent. Maybe a little thin for my tastes.

HopHeadinAZ (180) - Arizona, USA - OCT 15, 2007
22oz Bottle: Pours a dark brown with a fine tan head. The nose is subtle but driven by chocolate tones. Chocolate drives the taste but the finish is slightly bitter with a hint of dark coffee or espresso. The palate is thinner than I would expect but also soft and velvety. Overall a nice beer that hides the alcohol well and makes for a nice desert beer.
