3.23/5  rDev -17%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured form a bomber bottle and into a tulip glass it pours a pretty, dark coffee color with a nice bubbling, mostly dense tan head at the surface. Nice cascading in the glass as I poured. Sticky lacing on the glass as it dissipates to a slightly foamy surface layer.

Lots of coffee and toffee malt on the nose. A bit of dark grapes on the nose also of note, but to be honest, rather boring nose. Some char also to note on the nose.

Sipping reveals a very chocolatey and coffee flavor taht really hits my taste buds. Finish is dry and a bit thin. Expected a bit more.

Body is full, but actually just a tad thin for a full-bodied brew (if that makes sense). A bit of alcohol phenols on the finish.

Overall, not a bad brew, but i've had better Lagunitas. Nothing very exceptional.

3.86/5  rDev -0.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

22oz bottle poured into a snifter. Pours black with some brown hues; fluffy khaki head that fades slowly leaving great retention and lacing. The aromas are loaded with black coffee. There's a nice amount of vanilla in the mix too. Cocoa malts and milk chocolate is there too. The flavors focus on the coffee, obviously. There's milk chocolate there giving it a sweetness along with some dark chocolate giving it a subtle bitterness. The espresso overpowers the chocolate, in my opinion. The vanilla really accents the coffee notes, giving it a solid complexity. There's a subtle earthiness going on. This is not boozy at all and the flavors are clean. Alcohol goes unnoticed and this is dangerously drinkable. Mouthfeel is great. It's extremely light and fluffy on the palate, but still remains full-bodied. The carbonation is active. It really enhances the experience.

This is a very nice coffee stout. It doesn't try to be anything special or out of the ordinary, but just stays true to the concept. It might not be a game changing coffee stout, but it's on point and very enjoyable. Well done.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: Black. It's pretty black. Light can barely pass through it. Nice 2-finger tan head leaves nice lacing on the glass.

S: Lots of chocolate and roasted malt. Smells tasty. Slightly sweet with smooth milk chocolate and coffee. Touch of booze.

T: Just like the nose, the creamy chocolate is upfront and fades into the rich dark malts. Towards the back, the coffee is slightly robust and bitter, as it is accompanied by a mild amount of hops. Very well balanced. . . And there's the booze. The alcohol lingers more on the tongue as it warms up.

M: Very creamy. Maybe even a little chewy. Pretty much what I would expect from a stout.

O: I really liked this coffee stout. Lagunitas has always been a reliable brewery and a go-to for me. This a pretty good coffee stout, maybe not the best, but definitely worth trying. Especially since a bomber of it is only about five dollars. I recommend it!
