Had to draw the line in the sand on this one. I'M NOT USUALLY A FAN OF STOUTS, but I've come to enjoy lagunitas. As far as appearance and smell go, this was spot on; perfectly pitch black, it pours a mysterious black with a layer of caramel-colored head. On the nose, I picked up, of course, coffe and milk chocolate, as well as brown sugar and a hint of something bitter - couldn't name it, but it was there. Taste was ever-enjoyable; so much roasted coffee; lots of smooth toffee and chocolate flavors; really well-balanced by the hops-fruity and sweet yet it leaves the slightest bit of bitter aftertaste that begs you to take one more sip. Mouthfeel was the only thing that threw me off here; stouts are typically creamy with minimal carbonation, but this was atypical; pretty bubbly and thirst-quenching - probably why I enjoyed it so much.

Overall, would have given if it 5s across the board if it had been more true to style. An incredibly enjoyable beer for those who are looking for an intro into the world of stouts and porters. Would recommend in a heartbeat to anyone. Cheers!
