3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice and espresso-laden, creamy and chewy at first but disappates a bit too rapidly. Light alchohol influence despite the ABV and less chocolate malt than I was expecting - although in all fairness it is a cappuccino stout, not a mocha stout. Surprisingly red in color, nice head, and great looking in general. Tasty, but not a beer that grabs you by the balls by any means.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Almost black with ruby highlights when held to the light. Massive, dense, lasting tan head. Aroma is coffee and alcohol. Flavor is deep and rich with a strong initial alcohol burn, coffee flavors develops and continues to grow till the end. Mouthfeel is full and round. Aftertaste is slightly sweet with a touch of coffee bitterness.

The usual description for a stout that i give; Dark and opaque body and khaki head. Head does break up and leave a O-ring in the glass with some big bubbles. Aroma is milky and light roasted malts. For naming it cappuccino stout its a real played down flavor of dark coffee bean and half and half cream. All and all im glad i was able to try it out.

Pours dark in color. Aroma is sweet and creamy with some roasted coffee bitterness as well. Very smooth mouhfeel. Starts out sweet then goes into some hop flavor and finishes with some roasted coffee. Alcohol is very well hidden. Excellent brew.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle pours black, ruby brown highlights, light tannish head thats is quite large & frothy, with very sticky lacing. Milky cappuccino aroma, roasted malts, subtle chocolate & hops. Smooth semi-sweet chocolatey roasted malt goodness up front, with a soft hop bitterness bringing up the rear. Some lingering coffee and hops in the aftertaste. Good body, medium mouthfeel. This is one I’d love to try on draught.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Dark brown color. Medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is chocolate and coffee with a touch of vanilla. A medium bodied stout. Malts are roasty, chocolate and coffee. This beer is brewed with Hard Core Coffee and the coffee flavors are VERY evident. It has all the rich roastiness of a cappuccino without any of the bitterness, Very smooth taste. Nicely balanced. Without all the flavors going on this is still a fairly subtle stout. A REAL winner from Lagunitas. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet with a touch of coffee bitterness.

Dark brown with ruby hues when held up to bright light. Small fading light tan head. Light malty cocoa scent. Sweet coffee and cream flavor with some dark chocolate in the background and a lightly bitter sweet finish with a hint of licorice. Smooth creamy palate. Nice stout.

Pretty good beer. Nice dark, brown, coloring. Taste is good, nice cappicino/coffee flavor that mellows out as it goes down. Solid beer overall.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Ok latest from one of my fav breweries, known for its "oddball" take on styles of beer.
Comes in the 22 oz bomber.
Nice looking beer ,poured into my imperial pint mug,it’s mahogany brown when held to the light with a large creamy/rocky coffee n’ creme coloured head.
The aroma is nece and fresh typical burnt/roast stout aroma but worryingly little cappucinno.
Ah the cappuccino is really utstanding in the first sip, right up front, then it dissapates to a nice creamy sweet smoothness..small bitter aftertaste,,the 7.9% alcohol is well hidden but theres warming in the throat.
Very beautiful mouthfeel..silky smooth and creamy.
Nice drinkable stout..I liked it a lot.
