2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2015 2014 bottle poured into snifter. Pours a caramel brown with a thick white head that won’t quit. The lacing is thick and foamy and sticks relentlessly to the glass. Nose is coffee, milk chocolate, roasted malt. The flavor is more bitter than expected, with notes of coffee and some chocolate, but then a bitter finish. Slick mouthfeel. I was expecting a more robust, refined palate but found a mostly bitter stout lacking character. Not very impressed.
On draught at Old Chicago, June 14th, 2015.
Pours black, small off white head of foam, good lacing for as strong as this is.
Smells of coffee, duh, roasted malt, dark chocolate, loads of bitterness.
Same for the taste, would make a good breakfast beer if I had bottles of it.
Medium to medium high carbonation, good mouthfeel. euniceradio (563) - Worthington, Minnesota, USA - SEP 29, 2017
22 bomber to tulip. Pours black, khaki head. Aroma of coffee bean, chocolate, toffee. Taste of same with vanilla, cola and acidic bite. Off taste from back end. Could be the booze, but is rather off putting. Might be an old bottle. Hopskotch (21) - Stanford, California, USA - SEP 27, 2017
Had this at their tasting room. I love the taste of coffee, so was pleasantly surprised by the taste of this, as I don't always love capp stouts beerlover503a (28) - Alabama, USA - SEP 15, 2017
Lagunitas has done a very nice job with this stout. Such a wonderful cappuccino aroma and flavor as the name would imply. Nice and warming but no detectable alcohol taste. Great Beer!!! PatrickYEG (21) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 13, 2017
At 9.1% alcohol it's a bit too strong for my taste. Pours a dark thick black with little foamy head

Bomber thanks to hauxe. Pours almost black with a tan head. Aroma of dark malts and espresso. Taste is espresso, dark malts, alcohol, but primarily coffee. Finish is roasty, bitter and boozy. Good but not great. darbeer75 (1112) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - APR 24, 2017
Aroma: chocolatey with a little coffee; Appearance: pitch black with creamy tan head that lingers; Taste: follows nose with more booziness; good; Palate: heavy body with long, boozy finish; Overall: would like more dimension but still enjoyable. Would drink if available but probably not get again. ciocanelu (3109) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - APR 13, 2017
Dark brown color with tan head. Aroma has sweetened milk coffee with some dark chocolate on top. Taste follows with the sweet coffee at first but gets more bitter and roasty towards the finish lingering with coffee flavor on the aftertaste. Medium to full bodied with a good amount of carbonation. Overall it’s a really nice coffee stout with balanced flavors. meccahh69lol (366) - New Haven, Connecticut, USA - MAR 15, 2017
Well, we finally made it. Beer rating # 69. It is gonna be 351 more ratings till we get to another funny number so let’s bask in it for a moment . . . OK, on with the review. Here we have another contentious stout rating for I enjoy them but my better half winces and calls them "garbage water" unless the chocolate notes are strong and pure. This beer does not have strong choco notes. It is very much a coffee stout (per the name obv). It has a nice malty smell and dark velvety pour (edit: and also smells like a raccoon died in a dumpster). It has a nice coffee taste and lingers with a long finish (edit: that will not go away unless you chug your hot cocoa). It isn’t as good as the "High West-ified" varietal I tried from Lagunitas a few weeks ago, but this is still good (edit: 696969696969696969696969696969). I like it at least. Review by me, edits by my booboo. willisread (3802) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 25, 2017
Tap at J’s Lagunitas event. Pours a pitch black with a finger of beige foam. Chocolate forward nose with some light malt and coffee notes. Booze hidden well. Good coffee notes on the palate/finish. Solid.
