This is the first Lagunitas to make me smile! My standard comment...I wish it was thick but the sweetness is there, the coffee is there! Made my mouth happy!

weihenweizen (2892) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JAN 24, 2016
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.

Dacrza (787) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - JAN 15, 2016
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...
