look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into 10 oz snifter.

A Jet black. Frothy lingering tan head. Nice lacing where the head dies.

S Very weak. Some notes of coffee and malt but not much comes through. Weird.

T Quite different from the smell. Very flavorful. Roasted malts. Raisin. Dark chocolate. Coffee beans. Hops (this is a Lagunitas brew after all), this creates a nice bitterness on the tail end that lingers. Some heat.

M Rich, full, foamy. Boozy finish.

O Lagunitas, in this reviewers opinion, makes the best IPAs in the universe. They also make some damn fine stouts. Cappuccino Stout is awesome. BACS is one of the two or three best BA stouts I've ever had. This brew doesn't stand up with the former two, but it's still damn good. Rich and flavorful. I'm still confused as to why the aroma is so weak. Nevertheless, that's basically unimportant. Really good stout.
