look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Decent overall. The look was not really what I was expecting... looks more like a Belgian dark ale or something in that vein. Not much lacing or head. I poured this into a snifter glass, however the aroma is not over the top. Some burnt coffee notes, dark toffee, and burnt malt. Taste has a bit of a smoky feel to it, with the dryness balancing out any sweetness in the malt. Like bitterness and acidity on the end of the taste. No real cream aspects to speak of, and nothing that screams stout to me per say. Mouthfeel is actually quite watery for the style. High alcohol percentage that is present in the taste, and I kind of enjoy for the smokey aspect of it. Overall I like this beer, but style wise I would probably go for some better representations of this style. Overall I generally love Lagunitas, and I find this beer to be good, but not quite what I was expecting.
