look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours a deep brown color, murky and swampy with some light shining through around all of the edges. Seemingly low carbonation with a little, light-tan head that leaves minimal lacing at best. Aroma is full of some boozy chocolate; the alcoholic character comes off as bourbon-like. Creamy vanilla notes in the background, along with more cocoa dust and maybe even oak chips. Taste is, as expected, very chocolatey and oaky; woody and vanilla notes throughout. Some deep espresso comes out about halfway through and hits heavy against the roof of my mouth - bitter and dark. The cocoa powder flavor takes on a bittersweet character and that entwines with the light floral profile of the beer - very light and ashy hops hide in the background. As it gets warmer, the booze gets stronger and the woody notes become more defined. It's funny, this almost takes on a bourbon barrel aged flavor profile, even though it's not. Medium-thick mouth feel, slightly syrupy and a touch sticky; very low carbonation.

Overall, not as good as I was expecting, perhaps my expectations for Lagunitas have been put up too high based on their other brews. Still a very solid stout, but I would've liked more of a heavy coffee flavor and maybe less of a bourbon burn.
