I loved it. Had more of a coffee flavor, I was expecting more of a creamy flavor though but it was still great. A little bitter,I want more.

Is this really a beer? I’m not sure. The perfect interpretation of a capuccino.

Bottle. Pours an almost-black with a moderate off-white head. Nice roasted and coffee notes to the nose of this. Taste is much like a strong black coffee, which I love. Great stout.

Thick tan head. Nearly pitch black. Chocolate coffee and roast malt nose. Medium light body. Chocolate and coffee flavor. Some black malt flavor but not overwhelming.

Excellent coffee and chocolate aroma with just a hint of alcohol smell. Sweet but not too sweet chocolate flavor with coffee on the back end. At $4.50 for a 22oz bottle and 9.2% abv, this is probably the best beer for the money I've had.

Dark brown color. Medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is chocolate and coffee with a touch of vanilla. A medium bodied stout. Malts are roasty, chocolate and coffee. This beer is brewed with Hard Core Coffee and the coffee flavors are VERY evident. It has all the rich roastiness of a cappuccino without any of the bitterness, Very smooth taste. Nicely balanced. Without all the flavors going on this is still a fairly subtle stout. A REAL winner from Lagunitas. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet with a touch of coffee bitterness.

What a coffee bomb! Pours a pitch black with a decent head. Aroma is of pure coffee, like smelling grounds after brewing. As a coffee lover this was fantastic Taste was similar to the nose, great finish of coffee with some bitterness. Will go get some more I liked this one.

2010 vintage. Pours rich dark brown with a thin brown, fizzy head. The aroma is strongly of coffee and faint chocolate. Tastes like coffee, roastiness, chocolate and very faint alcohol. Full-bodied with a smooth texture and mild mouth-carbonation, than when drank very cold tastes like a blended iced cappuccino, Lagunitas Cappuccino Stout finishes smooth and a tiny bit bitter, like a true cappuccino.

Really, for all the claim on the bottle that is super-coffee, I found this have a nice slight coffee flavor that was by now means overpowering or bad. Really pretty surprised by how drinkably beery this was.

Pours a pitch-black with thick,white creamy head leaving impressive sticky lacing. Smells of coffee,toffee,thick dark chocolate, taste comes through identically with rich creamy maltiness,medium bodied. Very tasty, maybe not the best stout/Imperial stout, but very rich in flavor and body. Better than Guinness, meets and exceeds the American stout style, worth the bucks and try. A very good West Coast-style sto
