Hermod (6664) - Vantaa, FINLAND - DEC 2, 2016
65cl bottle @ William K, kurvi. 8,9% version. Poured near black with a thin brown head. Aroma has strong coffee, roasted malt, licorice, spicy notes. Lots of coffee here, builds up nicely with some licorice, mild ashy notes, roasted malt, dark chocolate. Long finish. Nice, but expected better body though.

piscator34 (2370) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 28, 2016
Bottle. Jet black in colour with moderate carbonation. Aromas are of coffee, stewed fruit, and a bit of vanilla. Flavors are of mild drip coffee, pale malt, caramel, and a bit of chocolate. Elements of ashy coffee grounds show up on the finish, along with some mild herbal bitterness. Solid, but not terribly intense.

Dorkenstein (446) - - OCT 12, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2016 Espresso and roasted malt aromas, dark fruit/chocolate too. Taste is espresso, bitter roasted malt, and dark chocolate. After it has warmed, a fudgey dark chocolate and plum flavor becomes codominate with the espresso.

PugUglyBrewer (243) - - SEP 18, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2016 I have had many coffee stouts over the last two years since I have gotten into craft. There are variations left and right. The Cappuccino Stout is a nice spin on the style by being a high gravity brew with a bit of the milk stout DNA appearant. The nose is lent more toward coffee and cinnamon while the taste is a melody of chocolate, espresso and a cinnamon kick. It looks great in the glass with a massive 3 finger head. A rich dark brown appearance.

HourGlass13 (671) - North Carolina, USA - SEP 3, 2016
The pour is dark black, with just a bit of dark tan foam. You can smell the coffee, but its not overpowering. The initial taste is rich stout with notes of roasted hops and coffee while chocolate and roasted hazelnut comes thru as it sits on the tongue. The finish is slightly bitter with coffee lingering. Good stuff though.

JohnGalt1 (1708) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 23, 2016
Day-Old coffee and coffee bitterness mingling with some some low hoppiness ... maybe a little alcohol. Taste is similar with caramel and significant roasted nuts ... finish is a cup of espresso with a touch of sweetness. Very smooth mouthfeel ... it is big, not a chore to finish, but you still need to stick around and appreciate it.

MrBeerFanatic (1027) - Friona, Texas, USA - AUG 14, 2016
My 1000 th rating. Pours a dark brown/black with a thick head and great retention. Aromas coffee, brownie, cocoa, slight smoky wood. Flavors medium coffee, light wood, medium cocoa, slight brownie. Medium sweetness medium bitter finish. This is not to complex but decent. Have had way better coffee stouts and most are better with age.

lownote (541) - Austin, Alabama, USA - AUG 13, 2016
Coffee and roasted barley aroma. A bit if a char character. Pretty sweet, but the bitterness means its not cloying. Has a decent bitterness. Body is also thinner than expected, but not thin at all. Tasty big, roasty, and a little sweet.

Douberd (5031) - 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.
