Attractive dark brown beer out of the bottle with a short lived frothy tan head. Very sweet nose with lots of malt syrup and sweetened coffee, but not as overpowering as a lot of coffee beers. This is a very sweet beer, with white sugar, burnt caramel, and bitter chocolate. The coffee really only comes out as a bitterness in the end, and even then it is like coffee with too much sugar in it. If you like sweet stouts, drink this.

soft aroma of coffee and stinging aroma of vodka. black and not dense. several flavors smoosh together from a light body. burnt toast, ruby port, and a candy sweetness like those necklaces youve worn. when i look for the coffee i find it and i like that it doesn’t knock me over the head.

2007 bottle, 8.3% ABV. Pours a very dark mahogany color. Glows clear chestnut brown when held to a strong light source. A dense, foamy, light brown head crowns the top momentarily, but quickly subsides to just a tiny rim. Sudsy lacing mostly rejoins the body. The aroma is a blend of dark caramel, chocolate, strong coffee, and cream. A touch of vanilla and molasses are also detectable. Smells pretty sweet and just slightly alcoholic. The flavor is all baker’s chocolate and fresh coffee up front, with contrasting burnt caramel sweetness and hop bitterness on the back end. Mouthfeel is thin for the style and slightly sticky. I would classify this one as a sweet stout. Decent beer, but Lagunitas does hoppy IPAs and ASAs so much better than they do stouts.

2007 Bottle labled 8.3%abv. Pours black with a small but lasting tan head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of coffee, roasted malt, and light caramel. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium slightly thin mouthfeel with a moderate amount of bitterness and well hidden alcohol. Very good

Pour is dark, near pitch black. Nice small tan head. Aroma is of coffee and slight hops with a hint of chocolate. Smooth coffee and subtle alcohol taste. Paired perfectly with my cheesecake. Another good beer from lagunitas :)

’07 bottle labeled 8.3%abv. Pours fairly dark brown with a moderate tan head. Aromas of fresh ground coffee, lactic sugars, a nice woody undertone, and perfumed accents (probably the hops). Lots of black coffee and dark chocolate up front, followed by some creamy lactic notes and very subtle bitterness, but overall a bit light. Palate is medium/full, slightly sharp carbonation, and a bit oily/sticky, with a fairly long finish. Killer for the price, but a bit light in flavor for my expectations.

UPDATED: JAN 7, 2010 beautiful pour. medium to large cream tan head. dark dark brown color with a little red tint to it. nose of coffee and a bit of citrus. great texture. tastes like a big frosty glass of alcoholic cocoa... in a good way. I’m becoming a big Lagunitas fan.

A very delicious beer. Don’t be scared off by the "cappuccino" name, it tastes like coffee but only for the first sip or two. Otherwise, it’s a pretty mild coffee flavor. Smells malty and coffe-ish, and is reminiscent of a porter. Very good, very good!

My bottle says 8.3 ABV doesn’t smell like 8.3% abv! Smooth coffee flavor, roasted malts, dark malts, licorrice, molasses and caramely! Very smooth coffee stout.

22 oz. bottle. Pours black with a medium sized tan head. The aroma is roasted malts, some coffee, and light chocolate with a hint of hops. The Flavor has coffee and roasted malts. Nothing that really stands out, just decent. Maybe a little thin for my tastes.
