Bottled. I loved this one with the very strong coffee aroma and flavor. Really heavy finish.

Bomber to snifter (shared with cards04). Looks good; a lightly translucent very dark amberish brown with foamy light beige head. Smells of dark malt, coffee, and roast. Tastes like it smells, but the cappuccino comes through. Bittersweet (from the roast) with a medium full-bodied mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

A really nice stout.. Thanks b3shine for sharing this. Pours black with wispy mocha head. Very attractive. Aromas are vanilla and coffee. Very balanced stout. Not coffee heavy. You get coffee, but also lactose and vanilla. You get the whole cappuccino effect with this. Very nice.

dlovell2 (947) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 21, 2015
Pours black with ruby tint around the edges of the glass and a thick creamy tan head. Roasted malt aroma with coffee and chocolate. Nice creamy mouthfeel with some light bubbles. Flavor is creamy sweet caramel, roasted malt, dark chocolate, and coffee. Finishing with a dark coffee roastiness. Fantastic.

snoot8726 (29) - Terre Haute, Indiana, USA - JAN 17, 2015
Bomber. Pours almost pitch black with an off white and tanish head. Aroma of coffee and hops maybe light roasted marshmallow? Coffee and booziness dominate the taste with a little dark chocolate. Booziness over powered the coffee/cappuccino to me or else it would?ve been a lot better. Overall good but far from great.

Poured from a bomber into a tulip on 05.06.14. A: Midnight black with some red at the bottom. The tan head quickly recedes leaving some nice lacing. S: Caramel, chocolate, coffee, toffee. Sweet smelling. T: Raisins, coffee, caramel, toffee. A slight roastiness is there too on the back end. M: Velvety smooth. Some crisp bubbles on the back end. O: This was a nice dessert. The alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight burn in the throat. The coffee is not overpowering. It adds a nice roastiness to the sweetness. Usually, I don’t like coffee, so I was surprised by how much I liked this one. This is a fantastic stout. At $4.50 a bomber, it is a steal.

Aroma: Coffee followed by strong chocolate, char. Appearance: Pours dark brown, almost black. Thick, creamy, coffee/mocha colored, two-finger head that disappeared slowly. Thin lacing. Taste: Dark chocolate with coffee taste finish. Very light carbonation. Drinks thinner than the 9% ABV. Fruit flavor undertones; raisins, vanilla. Palate: Smooth. Silky. Overall: I had this on draft (nitro) at Quench Tap Bar. Very, very good beer. Lagunitas has made a high quality coffee stout. RateBeer member slowrunner77 probably summed it up best, "One of Lagunitas’ best non-hoppy beers. the body is just a touch thin, especially for 8% (sic), but it’s pretty smooth."...yeah, real, real smooth. #respectbeerbrethren.

tmongoose (1419) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 15, 2015
Bomber shared. Pours dark brown to almost black with nice mocha head. Decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is deep roasted malts almost to the point of charred. Plenty of coffee notes mild chocolate, licorice and earthy. The flavor is deep and rich with coffee, dark roasted malts and all hints of the scent. Alcohol is hidden but only appears on the end. Another great beer from these guys.

FROMTHEBOTTLE (10) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 3, 2015
Bomber bottle at 9.2%. Pour is very dark. Like day old coffee. Lacing is reminiscent of "coke float". Thick and airy foam that clings to side of glass as it settles. Head settles nicely into a perfect thin ring. Coffee dominates on the palate with bakers chocolate (ie bitter) also present. Prune and raisin notes mix nicely with licorice and roasted malt. Have tried a few Lagunitas beers before but this is first non hoppy offering. Overall a good coffee stout.
