22 oz bottle. Pours a dark brown with red highlights. It has a bubbly tan head that quickly recedes the a thin film that leaves some lacing.

The aroma is grainy coffee and sweet lactic chocolate with a little dark fruitiness and tobacco.

The flavor is lots of roasted coffee and black licorice with a little sweetness and a big bitter tobacco-like finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full and creamy.

Overall, a decent coffee stout. As I drank, more licorice and tobacco came out that I didnít really care for.

Really, this has to be one of the best stouts Iíve had. Iíve never been a big fan of other lagunitas beers, but this cappaccino stout is definitely sublime. Try it with a fat cigar, and you will be in heaven.

PilsnerPeter (3029) - Flushing, New York, USA - DEC 25, 2006
Pours almost black with a red hue at the edges. Tan head falls to a film. Pleasant milky malt aroma. Definitly hints of brewed coffee, slightly chocolatey. Smooth body, with a slightly bubbly mouthfeel, but still somewhat creamy. Smooth kilned malts bringout nice milk chocolate, subtley sweet flavor. Darker earthy notes showup later with suggestions of tobacco, and roasty espresso flavors, yet there is a milky silkyness that sustains a balance. Decent bitter finish. A nice and well balanced stout.

GuilTTy (728) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - DEC 24, 2006
Pours a clear chestnut under a thinner than expected light brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee and chocolate. Flavor stays true to the aroma with dark chocolate taking more of a leading role but strongly supported by coffee, cherry cordials and roasted malt. Hops make a grand entrance just before the finish which is otherwise long and tasty. Alcohol very well hidden.

reddish-brown, clear, creamy beige head. aroma is obviously big on the coffee with notes of alcohol and a citrusy earthy hoppiness with a good swirl. flavor is initially bitter, with slight to moderate roastiness. not nearly as much coffee in the flavor as there is in the aroma. more alcohol in the flavor.

I donít even taste any coffee in this. Iíve had porters that tasted more like coffee than this. mediocre.

On tap at Mad Mex Robinson. A good stout from a great brewer. The aroma was decent but not strong...coffe and malt dominate. The pour was a beautiful black with a tan head that had me "oooh-ing" and "ahhhh-ing" at the bar. The taste was of chocolate and roasted malt (suprise!) but did not go all the way through. The beer (in my opinion) is over-carbonated for a stout. I love my stouts thick like oil and this was just too thin to rave about. A good beer? Absolutely. A good stout? Yes. A great one? Not really.

pours black, with red highlights in it when held to the light. off white head, smells coffee, some chocolate and roasted malts. tastes chocolatey with much coffee in it. no alcohol to speak of, great carbonation for a stout.
