aroma: rich, roasty, slight silage.
taste: creamy, chocolate, dark-roast, tobacco leaf.
a bit more rounded and subtle than Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout.
The aroma is strong, sweet, roasted coffee. Taste is bold in malty sweetness with a hint of hops. Tastes like smoked molasses. marshall2389 (5) - - SEP 15, 2011 does not count
It’s dark and thick like a good stout should be. Even the head tastes good. Like a good root beer float for grown-ups. liquidhedonism (289) - Beaverton, Oregon, USA - SEP 4, 2014
22 oz bottle from Whole Food Market in Hillsboro, OR. Initial nose is boozy and sweet. Mouthfeel is smooth and syrupy, and the mild carbonation paired with the bitterness from the hops adds a pleasant buzz on my tongue. Has notes of coffee and licorice. Taste is very sweet, but the heavy bitterness from the hops and roasty grains adds a great balance. Finishes slightly sour, but otherwise this is a perfect beer for my taste!

22oz bomber. I like this a lot. Had this at the end of a long, terrible day and it was exactly what I needed. Great flavor with notes of chocolate and burnt caramel. Pleasantly smooth. Dave_F (5) - Alabama, USA - FEB 11, 2014 does not count
Light tan head. Strong coffee aroma. Assertive coffee flavor with a rich earthy backbone. Finishes dry with lingering smokey and coffee aftertaste. Medium body. polo_marco (332) - milton, Vermont, USA - MAY 10, 2016
Smells of roasted malts coco nibs or dark chocolate and deep dark roasted coffee. Nice deep dark hold black color. Taste is awesome starts off with a big heaping of roasted malts followed by a rich deep dark chocolate flavor then finishing off dry with strong dark roasted coffee almost esspresso like. Super smooth cream like finish that you don’t get from a lot of imperial stouts with abv This high except a select few which I like to call the elite stouts. This has a full smooth body with light carbonation that goes flat but not till the very end. Love the flavor complexity of this stout one of my favorite goto I stout. Love all your brews don’t ever stop your alchemy of what your doing. Beautiful brew. blackmurder (236) - Whitaker, Oregon, USA - JUL 20, 2006
Great flvor in this one. Not too bitter, not too watery. Just right. Pours jet black with a thin head mocha colored head. Mmmm, aroma of sweet chocolates, caramels, and roasted barley. I just love this beer, my favorite from Lagunitas and very under-rated here. The taste is what really hooked me here. It is so crisp, refreshing, yet bold, smokey, rich, and dark at the same time. A great summertime stout. Cole (967) - , Alberta, CANADA - DEC 29, 2010
