3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at P&P Charleston. Translucent dark brown with medium/big light brown head. Fruity dark malt, medium body, lower carbonation, and little lacing. Taste roast, fruit, some alcohol, and slightly bitter finish. Is this a quad or imperial stout, not that good for the style.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
DATE TASTED: January 15, 2016... GLASSWARE: Victory HopDevil nonick... OCCASION: Book Bingo down, Shark Tank and Cavs/Rockets to go... APPEARANCE: jet black--as cappuccino should be--with a thick, creamy brown head that begins as a two-finger froth and finishes as a half-inch hedgerow with high-arcing branches... AROMA: goodness, burnt toffee and toast with cappuccino, lactic hints of milk, dough and earthy hops that are drowned out by the brackishness of the bean... PALATE: a velvet-smooth sip, with the textured finish that makes a medium-bodied, dry finish--drinkable, warming and chewable... TASTE: roasted is the word, as every breath suggests a burnt bean... the milkiness is present, but a balance is struck with peat and earthiness; confident and full... OVERALL: surprisingly not as nuanced as I had hoped.... a beer that warms up to the evening, but does not further its cause... at $4.99, a fair price for a full-bodied, high-alcohol ale that furthers the Lagunitas profile...

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz. bottle from The Hop Yard, Raleigh (2014 "Vintage-ized" bottle). Dark brown pour with a short and frothy khaki head. Aroma of rich roasted coffee and dark chocolate. Coffee overwhelms any other flavor although some milk chocolate is eventually noted. An excellent coffee beer.
