1 pint bottle poured into a Boulevard tulip glass. No bottled on date present.
A - Pours dark as the night with the tiniest little ruby dot showing through, where I am able to discern some bubbles rushing to the top. Frothy, creamy 2 finger mocha head chillin out on top.
S - Wonderful chocolate / vanilla hybrid type smell going on with a significant notion of hop bite. Smells pretty good so far.
T - Very bitter tasting stout, not much of a coffee taste at all at first, but the espresso bean flavor creeps out as the beer warms up. Warms the soul for damn sure within a few sips. Maybe just slightly over carbonated, for a stout, but it still feels good.
M - This brew definitely has a very creamy texture to it, which is very nice indeed. Slight coffee bean aftertaste lingering around, but nowhere near overwhelming.
In all, I'd say the Lagunitas crew achieved what they were going for. Nice 9.20% abv warms you up on winter's night nicely. Definitely worth drinking, but I would personally opt for one of Lagunitas's IPA offerings next time.
