Not much of an aroma. Very average. There was not a real cappuccino flavor to it, as I would have expected. Smooth and drinkable.

Lagunitas continues to impress. Dark pour with an off white head. Aroma was not easily detectable. Flavor is chocolate with a bit of coffee. Rich flavor and well balanced. Bitter slightly acidic finish. My favorite from Old Chicagos winter beer tour.

I really liked this one. Although a distinct cappuccino flavor could not be found, a general roasted coffee like flavor was certainly present, and significantly better than other coffee stouts Ive had. The other think I enjoyed was that the hops didnt get in the way of the roasted malt experience, but their presence added just the right amount of bitterness. Just awesome

UPDATED: FEB 11, 2007 Neither good nor bad. Id say that this is a really forgettable brew...but it isnt: Wheres the cappuccio? This is really a stout? In other words, I was so surprised by how light and nondescript this brew is, I havent forgotten it. (I also have another 22 in the cellar--that I know wont improve with age--but havent been able to pass it off on anyone yet (though my folks are visiting this weekend....they wont care)...

Abit lacking on Aroma..But a nice dark brown color,decent head, lacing. Somewhat sweet, lots of chocolate in the flavor, Bitter chocolate aftertaste, slight coffee is there, but not overpowering, a stout that I could drink quite often! Good.

On tap at the Trivia Pub in Moon Township. How can you pass this up? Really cool tap handle grabs your attention. Pours like used shovelhead oil into my clear glass. Sweey aroma hints and beery smells. Very dark opaque color. When tasted, this has an earthy bitterness about it. I really cant seem to find the coffeeness in there. There is a continuing bitterness of perhaps black bitter chocolate. Has a hard hitting personality, that comes across as medium class. Finish is lingering but not like the lingering bitterness of an imp stout.

22 oz bottle: Pours w/ a medium sized head light tan head and a deep mohogany brown body. Freshly brewed coffee, nutty, and herbal hop aromas up front. Light chocolate and some brown sugary notes as well. The flavor is well balanced between hops and malt w/ malt winning out by just a hair. Finish is semi sweet at first, then dries out into the aftertaste which is chocolate and brown sugary flavored coffee. The coffee flavor is not dominant. it is there, but not overly strong and lets the other malts work their magic. Also lightly nutty mid palate. There is also a touch of acidity up front from both the coffee and the roasted malts. Fuller medium body, medium carbonation, well hidden alcohol, and smooth. Smoother than a cup of coffee actually! I had my doubts about this one, but I actually liked it. Not an over the top coffee flavor as I had feared, but a nicely balanced malt/coffee flavor makes it a very smooth tasting drink!

Nice black / brown pour. Thin Tan head fadded fast. The aroma is dominated by the coffee, there are some malts trying to come through, but very stong on the coffee. The flavor is true to the aroma. The nose is dominated by coffee, with a nice malty highlight. This is not a very full bodied stout, but not too wimpy, pretty middle of the road. Slow lingering finish, with a touch of sweetness. Prettty good.

Bottle from Matt. Thanks. Pours out a brownish color with a small tan head. Smell is full of roasted coffee and some hints of chocolate. Taste is smooth and pretty sweet, almost overly sweet. Good tasting of coffee though, seemingly a pretty interesting beer. Not a really special effort, but still, very nice. Thanks Matt.
