3.55/5 rDev -8.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5
Poured into a snifter out of a 22oz bomber.
Pours pitch black with a half finger medium tan head. Surprisingly decent head retention and lacing for a beer of this strength.
Aroma comes off as sweet with almost a bit of a soy sauce character. I can definitely notice the coffee but it is tucked away in the background. Caramel and brown sugar are there as well with some milk chocolate.
Coffee is more prominent in the flavor but that same funky soy/worcestershire sauce note is there. Dark caramel and a touch of dark, dried fruit along with a lighter bitterness. Sweetness is moderate to high leading to a sticky finish but the alcohol is very well hidden.
Overall, this is not one of the better coffee stouts out there but for the price and abv, it is hard to go wrong with is one.

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!
