3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle, purchased 11/06. I did nothing exciting for St. Pat’s Day, so I brought up my lowest-gravity stout from the cellar tonight. Solid black body with a short brown stout head. Smell of molasses, slight fruit over coffee base. Perhaps this might compare to a Dark Lord? Taste is a little dry at first. Taste like coffee fresh from a roaster comes in, and slight bitterness of cocoa nibs. Kind of syrupy, as others have noted, but more in texture than sweetness. That all can come across a little harsh, which explains the disparity in ratings. I find this to be pretty rich; not really a lot of coffee buzz; at least not now, and fine mutant stout.
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 (20) - 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 (25) - 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 (56) - 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.

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 (2851) - 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 (320) - 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 (3544) - 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. ozzy70 (1264) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - FEB 13, 2017
