One thing is for sure, Lagunitas is never boring. This one hits you upside the head and says, "HEY, wake up, it's time for a stout beer!"

Like most everything I have tasted from this company, it is on the sweet side, and full bodied. It may get a little nasty towards the end.

It's not really true to the style, but it is better for not being so. Why be like all the rest. This is a unique brew, worth your attention.

A- Pours a dark, dark brown...almost black with mahogany highlights on edges when held up to a very bright light. Two finger creamy tan head disappates slowly. Light to medium lacing throughout.

S- Sweet malt. A little coffee and bittersweet chocolate.

T- Malt. A little coffee and chocolate. Hint of licorice. Somewhat boozy. No bitter aftertaste whatsoever.

M- Slightly sweet and creamy. Light carbonation.

O- Sat on this for over 7 months. Just another reason to be a fan of Lagunitas! Easy to drink. ABV sneaks up on you.
