On-tap at the Rose and Crown in Palo Alto, from a pint glass, reviewed from notes.

A: Pretty nice looking beer; dark brown with a reddish tinge and a light coating of light brown head.

S: Good blend of powerful coffee and cocoa notes (definitely smells like cocoa powder rather than chocolate). I'm only picking up on sweet flavors but it's never overpowering in its sweetness; rather comforting smell.

T: Initially quite bittersweet, which lingers as a light sweetness and even tanginess enter the picture. That could be coming from the slightly lactic flavors that are present– Lagunitas has done a good job making this a cappuccino beer rather than a coffee one. The combination of milk along with the coffee and cocoa from the nose are really all that I'm picking up on here, but it's enjoyable in its simplicity coupled with its uniqueness.

M: Medium-bodied; a little bit lighter than I was expecting from a stout with this kind of ABV. Creamy mouthfeel (which goes well with the cappuccino theme), with moderate carbonation and a slightly dry finish. Being picky here and knocking the 0.5 off since I would have preferred a thicker body, but it did lend itself to easy, quick drinking.

O: I had a bad experience with this one in the past in a bottle, but I'm glad I tried it again on tap. Coffee stouts are generally my favorite style of beer, and while this isn't one of the best of them, it's worth a try, it's reasonably priced, and it would definitely be a good starting point for people who haven't had a coffee beer before.
