ljthiessen (1126) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 8, 2016
Bottle. Dark brown pour with a ruby hue, almost no head. Aroma is a little sweet and malty, some caramel, dark roast coffee and chocolate notes. Taste is on the sweet side, malty caramel and chocolate with some bitter coffee notes that don't combine that well with the rest. Not bad, but pretty disappointing for Lagunitas and for an imperial coffee stout.

Dark brown pour with a dark tannish head. Excellent roasty chocolaty coffee aroma. Lighter body than expected, coffee/malt forward with a dry, sweet tone through the finish. Expected something heavier and more aggressive, was a bit sweet for my taste. Still very enjoyable.

demannu (372) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 29, 2016
Deep dark brown color with beige head. Roasted coffee aroma with a slight sweetness. Solid roasty coffee flavor, sweet notes of chocolate and maybe slight notes of dark fruits? Would have prefferred a bit less carbonation and a heavier/creamier body. A bit odd in total but good for the price.

teorn88 (6494) - Out of the EU, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2016
22oz bomber from GBBF ’15, London. It pours a clean brown color with ruby edges and a small beige head. Aroma is sweet and nutty upfront, with notes of chocolate and lactose, light coffee and tangy berries too. Taste is also sweet sugary upfront with more notes of chocolate vanilla and lactose, then turns into astringent bitter cocoa and coffee notes. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, tasty sweet stout

Xevious (78) - Amarillo, Texas, USA - MAR 18, 2016
Bought at a local specialty brew shop. Pours dark with a tan head. Immediately there’s no mistaking the ’coffee’ smell. Tastes like a high quality cappuccino! Had a somewhat dry finish. Absolutely fantastic. Like coffee? Like beer? LIKE THIS!

TheHOFF43 (2043) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - MAR 16, 2016
Bottle with the doge on my lape. Pours black with a ring of tan head. Aroma is tons of coffe, some roast malts. Taste is cappuccino up front, minda heavily carbed. A little weird.

BillHick420 (456) - California, USA - MAR 12, 2016
Pours pretty close to vantablack. Small beige, tight head. Nose of dark roasted coffee, dark bitter malts. Aroma of the same, warm. Full mouthfeel, some effervescence. Emjoyable. Would work well with a full bodied cigar.

I love the brewery, yet I’ve grown tired of coffee/bourbon stouts. With that in mind, so as not to skew judgment, this still lacks in every area. Pours dark with dissipated head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is weird, with chemical strangeness amongst coffee beans and cocoa. Finish is okay, but I’ll pass on this.
