Coffee and roasted barley aroma. A bit if a char character. Pretty sweet, but the bitterness means it’s not cloying. Has a decent bitterness. Body is also thinner than expected, but not thin at all. Tasty big, roasty, and a little sweet. Christos (5909) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - AUG 8, 2016
(Lagunitas Cappuccino Stout) Bottle 650 ml at home, served into a snifter, ABV 9.2%
Black coloured body, one full finger of thick, beige head, creamy, with very good retention.
Aroma has sweet coffee, chocolate, mocca, light plums.
Nice taste, more cold coffee now, sweet in general, with chocolate, mocca, plums, light caramel, fudge, some roasted malts on the finish, dates here and there, hints of alcohol.
Medium body with good carbonation.
Nothing mind-blowing but a very good one. sulawang (1208) - - JUL 2, 2016
Visual: Pours jet black without a significant head, ringed nano-micro ringed retention, steady micro streams accompanied by sporadic scatted bubbles.
Nose: roasted nutty sweet coffee, liquid barley malt in the background. (lvl-6)-pungency
Attack: super THICK, creamy-smooth/almost NO2
Mid-palate: roasted coffee, (lvl-6-sweetness) -> roasted barley malt, light burnt bitter chocolate, soy sauce, alcohol tang, vanilla
Finish: deep roasted coffee exhale w/ lingering bittersweet roasted malt.
Summary: This one kept me sipping and sipping... and sipping. Wonderfully smooth and approachable thick-creamy mouthfeel with a very agreeable integrated roasted coffee & barley deep body. Balanced, rich, delicious. It could use a touch of milkiness, but otherwise excellent. Cokemonkey11 (1123) - - MAY 30, 2016
Large American bottle. Brown. Pours black with a medium tan foam head subsiding average slow. Scent is light malt and medium light Porter yeast. Taste is medium dense Porter with maybe hops and little else. Finish is dry and a little earthy and even a little capsaicin. Good. Bebum (1121) - Massachusetts, USA - MAY 27, 2016
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2017 Opaque, covering lace. Very full body, silky texture, flavorful, big, rich extra hot and well balanced mouthfeel, long aftertaste. Bitter but well supported by mild background malt sweetness and balanced by crisp acidity. Strong but simple dark roast coffee flavor, malty, alcohol, raisins, tar, coke, finishing on a pomegranate syrup note. Delicious and satisfying. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap. Poured a dark brown color with a creamy head and good lacing. Aroma of fresh coffee, bit of dark fruit and roasted malt. Taste of coffee, coffee, bit of dark fruit and chocolate in the background. Nice bitterness and a dry finish. Full body, smooth with a nice coffee feel and well balanced. Enjoyable beer.

Brown colour with small head on top. Aroma has coffee beans, caramel malts, raisin too and of course roasted malts. Taste has lots of coffee, maybe that milk based cappuccino, roasted malts. Coffee stout, nothing special. Almost full body and medium carbonation. Punkero (476) - FINLAND - MAY 18, 2016
Dark. Nice rings. Coffee. Caramel. Sweetish. Raisin. Automat coffee. Alright stout, not too dry, but lacks imperialism. zentaoist42 (12) - Hayward, California, USA - MAY 9, 2016
It pours a very dark brown, forming a beige head that turns more tan as it diminishes. The head resembles a freshly pulled shot of espresso that turns to lace around the glass. There are hints of coffee and vanilla on the nose, but most of it is overwhelmed by the roasted malt and the hops used. The mouth is smooth if a bit heavy, a thicker feel than the beer looks like it would have. Towards the finish, the beer yields to the spicy and bitter notes from the hops with the coffee flavors. It does go down a bit too easily for a beer of such an ABV.
Overall, I was expecting more of an aroma from the beer, but I can barely smell it, even with a head. It’s not a bad beer. It is drinkable, but there is nothing spectacular about it. jmohno (1679) - Iowa, USA - MAY 5, 2016
Color black. White head, lace. Aroma is juniper berry and roast, earthy mineral. Same in taste but enhanced with more roast chocolate and juniper berry. Earthy herbal. Kinda sweet syrupy. Coffe seemed a little on the ashy day old side.Possibly a darker roast than I can appreciate maybe? Not sure. Stones Americano stout was real awesome, this is less.
