[A] Smells nutty, light roasted malt, subtle dark fruit, and light coffee, sweet creamy notes. [A] Pours a thin, almost clear, weak coffee brown. Nice tall light tan head. Recedes creamy with nice lacing. [F] Mouth is creamy, nice upfront coffee and lactose sweetness. Roast bitter with subdued but present hops. Touch of chocolate. Good feel. Better toward room temp. Faintly similar to a weak cup of java. [P] Mouth is thin, slightly creamy and slick. ABV just. Not really there. Buried under malty sweetness. [O] Pretty solid. Came off little sweet initially, but definitely a warm-drinking stout.

Only had a small sample on draft, but it was heavenly. Overwhelming cappuccino flavor, but welcomed. Holding back a bit on the rating because it was just a sample and not a full glass, but wow.

Dégusté en compagnie de Mademoiselle Irina et Marco. Cheers! Bière noire d’encre surmontée d’un mince collet mousseux n’affichant rien de spécial. Un stout - voilà tout. La raison pour laquelle je donne un score à cette bière est que j’ai toujours beaucoup estimé les produits de Lagunita’s mais franchement, celui-ci n’est pas à la hauteur de son étiquette qui dit tout - espresso. Là où j’ai tant eu de plaisir à découvrir cette audacieuse brasserie jadis, je découvre ici une bière ordinaire et unidimensionnelle. Ça goûte ce que ça sent, comme on dit en bon français! Le stout et le café. Ordinaire, sans nuances ni subtilités, déception autour de la tablée.

Deep, dark brown with a tan head. Creamy, smooth. Coffee, roasty malt, a bit of cocoa, and some sweetness. Very full, very good.

BierMeHoos (347) - Maryland, USA - JUL 6, 2015
Poured from a 22oz. bottle. Appearance is a deep dark brown with a reddish tint when held to light, head is one finger and lasts a bit. Aroma is coffee, dark chocolate, dark roasted malts. Taste is cappuccino, bitter-sweet dark chocolate, dark roasted malts, vanilla. Palate is medium to full bodied. Great beer, good for dessert or breakfast.

SeanMacGC (334) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUL 3, 2015
A sumptuous, seductive stout, that succeeds in belying the high alcohol content behind a rich tapestry of flavours. Pours dark, with solid tan head, and pleasant on the nose, with roasted malts and coffee notes predominating. Smooth medium-body on the palate, with roasted malts, coffee, and chocolate delivering a very comforting experience. Overall, a very decent imperial stout.

Bottled from Systembolaget Böack with a medium, beige head. Vinous aroma with milky coffee. Sweet flavour with coffee, brown sugar and chocolate. Rather high bitterness.

AgentAle (1087) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 17, 2015
Aroma is sweet malts, roasted malts with a slightly smokey body. The coffee and cappuccino flavors don’t come out until you taste it. It pairs nicely with the dark and roasty malts.only a small bit of bitterness here but it is sweet and earthy enough to keep it interesting and not spoiling the sweet malty experience. Very nice. Appearance is a black body with a medium beige head that retains quite well.

chinchill (3013) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 9, 2015
22 oz bottle served in a Unibroue snifter (from notes). Appearance: Looks like black coffee, if a tad hazy and with a moderate tan head. Decent retention and lacing. Smell: Modest roasty malt aroma, with light-medium roast coffee competing for dominance, but in a nice, well-balanced way. Taste: Coffee flavor in the forefront from start to finish, but there’s also a solid malt base and a touch of earthy/spicy hops. The malt base could be richer, but then the excellent malt/coffee balance might be off. Unusual bitterness profile with more, or at least as much, bitterness mid-taste as in the coffee-flavored finish. Mouthfeel: Medium+ body with excellent carbonation; very smooth. O: Easy to drink, refined coffee-stout with great mouthfeel. Limited bitterness given the substantial coffee component that leaves a lasting aftertaste. Excellent cold but improves with a bit of warming.
