(Bottle) Pours a black body with a moderate creamy light brown head. Aroma of raosted malt, chocolate and coffee with a compairable flavor. Expected more coffee flavor, but less coffee is better for me.

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - NOV 19, 2005
Pours a deep, dark brown...with a good sized head. Chocolate and roasted coffee beans on the nose....and it tastes just the same, although the coffee is not nearly as forward as you would think. Pretty good, but I was expecting a bit more.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - NOV 19, 2005
Bottle. Pours a lush onyx with nice carbonation and a tan head. Aroma is a blend of chocolate and chocolate. Flavor is roasted malt, chocolate, and a bit of coffee in the finish but not enough to really justify the name. Wait, just burped after the first sip and really tasted the coffee. Not a bad stout; in fact it’s pretty good. Just expecting a little more coffee. I’d drink more.

AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - NOV 18, 2005
Pours opaque black, thin tan head. Scents of roasted malt. Nice ever slight coffee flavors. Aftertaste is most certainly coffee beans. I like this brew a lot. Most of the ’coffee stouts’ I’ve had in the past are way over the top and taste like a mouth full of ground coffee beans. The coffee flavor in this brew is subtle enough to actually enjoy this as a stout. Nice smooth mellow body. A bit creamy even. Good.

Tejas (882) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 16, 2005
Big creamy head, nice. Familiar Lagunitas flavor. A bit thin in body for a stout. Coffee flavor is noticeable but I think it would much better if even more coffee flavor was present. Good but disappointing in a way.

Coffee stouts are one of my favorites and this one disappointed a bit. The coffee is there, if only when it hits your noggin. Alcohol well hidden. Creamy a bit. I will look for another bottle for a revisit.

[on tap in Brooklyn, NY] Black, clear ruby (at thin parts) with a thin white cover and good lacing. Vanilla, coffee, a little bit of roasted barley, sweet malt, US hops make for a nice aroma. The flavour is a bit salty up front, followed by roasted barley and the hops. Vanilla and coffee come in late with equal bitterness shared by the hops and malt. The bitterness lingers a little. Medium body with moderate carbonation.

Very dark brown, creamy tan head. Lightly oxidized aroma with cocoa, coffee, vanilla, milk, hops. Acrid and bitter with dusty chocolate and a hint of coffee. Has a fair amount of fruitiness too. Good body. Not bad.

Bottle - courtesy of grant. Pours near black and opaque. Small tan head disappeared rather quickly. Nose is roasted malts, coffee, and dark chocolate. Taste is bittersweet choco notes, coffee, and roasted malts. Hint of molasses as well. Body is creamy but oily and has lots of lingering bitterness. Finishes with more coffee and roasted malts and dark chocolate. Pleasant sweetness amongst the bitter coffee. Good stuff!

On tap. Poured a rather lighter shadfe of black ruby, if that makes any sense. On aroma of roasted coffee and chocolate with hints of spicy hops comes from this beer. Yes there is cappuchino in this beer, you just dont taste it until about ten seconds until after you swallow it. The rest of the flavors are all nicely balanced with notes of *suprise, suprise* roasted coffe and chocolate. A rather tasty beer that my girlfriend is rather fond of.
