COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ale Brewed with Coffee and then Aged in High West Whiskey Barrels.

This beer couldn’t have been done without the help from our friends at High West Distillery in Park City, UT and Chicago’s-own Metropolis Coffee. We brewed a rich, malty Imperial Stout with some of Metropolis’ Spice Island blend, then let it vintag-ize in High West Rye and Bourbon Barrels for up to 17 FREAKING MONTHS. It’s good to have friends!

Bottle at Black Christmas 2017
Black color. The aroma is lightly cheesy. Strong body, quite sweet, not much depth, dark caramel, some cheese again, hint of cherries, maraschino.
Good but a bit weird, not fully convincing.

Cybercat (6212) - Georgia, USA - DEC 10, 2017
Taps opaque coffee sable with a serviceable tan head. Aroma offers roast coffee, whisky, roast malt, woody and molasses tones. Flavor delivers roast malt, quality coffee, whisky, woody, molasses and chocolate tones for a singular stout. Mouthfeel presents thick body and lively fizz. Go high and west!

UPDATED: NOV 22, 2017 Sweet taste from Rye and chocolate. Coffee hits nicely on the back end. A very good Coffee Stout.

Thisis12ptfont (1223) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - SEP 16, 2017
Aromas of massive bourbon, aged malts, coffee rinds, coffee beans, dark malts, smoked charcoal, cocoa powder, dark chocolate, dark wort syrup, tree bark, burnt licorice, roasted barley, cigar smoke, campfire ash, burnt molasses, barrel wood and oak. Pours pitch black with a very thin mocha head and faint alcohol legs. Taste brings sharp dark chocolate, raw cacao, bitter coffee, roasted coffee beans, black licorice, dark roasted malts, thick malt oils and figs upfront. Immediately thereafter, immense bourbon, barrel wood, oak, aged dark malts, ashy malts, earth, mud, toasted caramel, vanilla and corn syrup assault the palate. Finishes very boozy with heavy residual coffee oils, bourbon, chocolate, oak, aged dark malts and a motor oil thickness. Overall, this is one massive bourbon stout boasting heavy and dark flavors with no remorse. I highly suggest seeking it out. Hands down the best Lagunitas beer.
