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.

Reid (1944) - Salem, Oregon, USA - NOV 7, 2004
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,itís mahogany brown when held to the light with a large creamy/rocky coffee ní 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.

This brew pours a dark brown, almost black with hints of red. Tons of dark roasty coffee in the aroma, hints of chocolate, very rich. Taste starts very sweet and rich, hints of chocolate in the start, followed by a slight raisin taste, then ends with a nice mocha finish. Some slight notes of licourice in the finish. Very smooth and powerful brew.

Aubrey (3451) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - NOV 6, 2004
Deep burgundy-brown with a lofty, lasting head. Creamy-smooth mouthfeel was nice. Roasty, with big dark chocolate notes throughout. Zingy hops, kind of grassy, resinous and piney. Moderate bitterness. Sweet milk notes. Other notes of darkly toasted bread, espresso with cream, and a hint of tobacco. Pretty good stout.

Ernest (6342) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 4, 2004
Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly lasting. Body is dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (coffee, roasted grain, chocolate), moderately hoppy (resin, apricot). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, creamy/velvety texture, lively carbonation. Was hoping for a little more malt richness and less PNW hop aroma, but this is still a delightful roasty stout.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - NOV 1, 2004
Brown. Aroma is full of coffee beans, milk & cream, chocolate and caramel. Subtle, mild, non offensive flavor with again, a strong taste of coffee beans continues on in the flavor profile along with chocolate, roasted malts and creamy. Well hidden alcohol. Finish is lingering and dry.

Kasteelfreak (341) - Fallbrook, California, USA - OCT 31, 2004
Pours with a medium size off-white head that dimishes quickly. The beer has a deep brownish red appearence when held up to the light. Aroma is coffee and milky, caramel, toffee malt with a little spice. Taste is sweet up front with notes of toffee, coffee, chocolate, and a little caramel. Has a medium body, but could use just a little bit more. Smooth and creamy. Really easy to drink.At $2.99/22oz. this stuff is a steal.

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 31, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2007 Dark crimson appearance with dispersing head. Beautiful, deep, rich coffee aroma. Very earthy with dark chocolate and light caramel hints. Sweet and thick initially, marshmallows, graham, tons of chocolate--a lot like Whoppers. An acidic, dry finish with wispy smokiness and a fluent rummy roastiness. Best thing Iíve had from Lagunitas.

Yum! Smooth coffee and chocolate flavors cover the 7.9 ABV nicely. Slightly sweet without the expected bitterness at the end. Definitely want to stock up on this one!
