Loved this one. Poured a transparent dark brown. Smelled of coffee and roasted/burnt chocolate. The beer was balanced very nicely. Not too much overpowering coffee flavors but enough to please the palate. Props to Trevor from Lagunitas for the full line samples. Bark!!

Thanks to elnadeau for splitting a bottle. THis pours a dark brown color with a nice coffee aroma. The flavor is nice and roasty/chocolatey/coffee. A good brew.

UPDATED: SEP 29, 2007 Poured a deep brown color, but not imperial-thick or anything. Head was very full and stuck around to the bottom of the glass, which is always good. Aroma was coffee and a bit of vanilla as well, but it wasn’t a real strong aroma to me. Taste Was simlar, but had a bit more roastiness and a slight liquorice quality. Mouthfeel was medium; not thick, but not watery either. The finish of the this beer was excellent. I don’t thick the bitterness really came from much use of hops, but the coffee provided a unique and tasty bitterness going down. A nice highly pleasurable stout.

21.05.06 Jimmack Invitational ’06 Meh. I absolutely wanted this beer to rock because I do love coffe stouts. Too bad. This beer was thin and a bit oxidized with very little cardboard going on and even less creaminess, which I would expect give the cappucino nomenclature. Not a bad beer, just another that can’t live up to its billing.

Good amount of roasted barley and coffee, with a touch of creamy cappaccino-like taste. Smooth, with some body. Black colour, good roast aroma, with some burnt part. A very good stout and a large enough bottle that it should be shared, and if I find other bottles I will share those.

Deep deep brown body with slightly red edges and a thick tan head. Smells fantastic, like a good cup of roasty coffee with hints of caramel. Taste is chocolate, cream, coffee, and a nice bitter finish. Palate is smooth and creamy. This is very good, but intense, I couldn’t drink it everyday.

The pour is a deep brown color, and the head is tan with some hints of orange I would say. The aroma is dominated by coffee, of course, and that is really it. The mouthfeel is nice, fairly heavy, and the taste is plenty of coffee. There are some malty notes to be had in there as well, but the coffee dominates. I felt the flavor could have been more complex, but they did accomplish what the bottle says--A Cappuccino Stout."

Large, light brown head, retention is good, lace is abundent and sticky. A black brew with an amber edgeing. Nose of roast and a surprising pineyness, chocolatey and coffee as well. Body is medium, good carbonation level. Chocolate, coffee, roast, caramel and some yoo-hoo action going on. Finish is roasty and hoppy, schweeeeet! Thanks Cliff!

Very dark color with red tinges. Quickly reducing head. Aroma is very chocolaty. Some very light coffee. Flavors of caramel and toffee. Very smooth body. Nice but not great.

Bottled @ Sk8vikings blind porter/stout tasting. Beer no. 19: Reddish brown coloured. Dense brown head. Sweetness, fruits, light roast and coffee in the aroma. Flavour is sweet, light herbal, roasty, chocolatish and has light liqourice notes. Is medium bodied and has a dry mouthfeel. Is nicely roasted and bitter in the end. I had better coffee beers, but its still a good one.
