Much lighter/thinner/less opaque than I had anticipated/remembered/third item on the list.
Looks like kind of a watery cola colour. Decent little head htat dissipates fairly quickly withouut sticking around to help celebrate.

Nose is light. Hmm.... I remembered really enjoying this beer, but thusfar it's not really bringing much to the table. some burnt/roasted malts and a bit of espresso bean. Not too much.

Whew. Well, my fears can be put to rest. While the first to catergories were fairly underwhelming, the one that really matters comes through. As I remembered, this is a very tasty brew. The taste is primarily dark roast espresso, with an almost-but-not-quite-sweet finish. The bitterness comes primarily from the coffee.

You know how they say don't judge a book by its cover? Well, don't judge this beer by its pour. My fears of a thin watery mess were (lukcily) unfounded, as this is a medium bodied stout, with a good level of carbonation. Goes down easily, the bitterness is not an oppressive one, and the 9.2% is not a distraction. All in all very well crafted stout.

Don't be discouraged by it's appearance, and trust the genii (that's plural genius for all you geniuses out there [I know. Shut up. {fine}]) at Lagunitas to do their job well. Which they do. Also they are really friendly, and the brewery is awesome and you should go there.
