Friggin amazing. Pours a beautiful dark brown almost black, with a nice head. Smells of chocolate and coffee and wonderfulness. Taste is very coffee forward but outstanding. Mouthfeel is heaven.

Overall, this was one of the best beers I have had in a while. I will be buying more of this to drink.

This is on tap at the bar that I work at right now and is delicious. The smell is awesome, who doesn't love the smell of coffee?! But the delicious taste really puts this beer into the 5 star range for me! It is creamy with a nice coffee finish, very dark in color.

Don't tell lagunitas, but I mixed this beer with boulevard chocolate ale and it tasted like I was drinking a dunkachino! I will be doing this until one of the kegs kicks :) cheers!

This is hands down my favorite beer in the known universe to date!

There is your general basic stout taste reminiscent of a Guinness hand crafted from heaven at least that is what my taste buds are saying. Frothy and lighter than a Guinness but the aftertaste is nowhere as pansy. No sir, there is the hit of coffee, almost like candy, sweet, not too sweet, and a very strong coffee note for those of you who are fans of coffee in general, will truly savor and relish this nectar of the GODS. This is everything I want from a beer minus all of the artificial elements that come with the territory of beer + caffeinated beverage. The taste comes through so damn well my only qualm is that this is a seasonal beer.

It's one of those find it and don't hestitate to pick this up otherwise you have FAILED IN LIFE! Yes I will go that far to describe this beer. I love coffee, and I love this beer so damn much it is the icing on the cake to what is already finely established with Guinness Beers but it adds just the extra kick that is needed for the tastes inbetween tastes. I found this at the store and I gobbled it up and bought out the store. Why? This is my hands down best tasting and expertly crafted beer I have ever tasted in my goddamn life, ever. This beats out Real Ale Coffee Porter, if the porter is a daily go to, this Stout is the grand mutha final boss. Why because it has the taste, AND the kick to whack some sense into ya. While the porter is like yeh expertly crafted coffee aftertaste. If i had to go to an island and i had to pick one thing. it would be a truckload of this beer in some forever ice cold fridge on some paradise island. End of story. Period.

Had this from a cask at the brewery.

A - black as night with a 1/4 inch foamy head that never disappears.

S - coffee, chocolate, signature lagunita's malt.

T - tastes just like it is dominant.

M - very carbonation...a little sticky.

O - great beer...great brewery!

If anybody gets a chance, definitely check out the brewery...they had many exclusive beers along with some of the best food I've had in California. BEEF BRISKET!!!

Wow. Awesome beer. Best coffee stout I've had. And at $5.99 at my local beer store, priced reasonably well too.

Very roasty with a bold roast coffee smell with some herbal citrus smells underneath it all. Very very smooth with sweet stout malts up front evolving into a bitter coffee taste and herbal bitterness from the hops melding together perfectly.

This is a pretty bitter beer and the sweetness only rolls over for a short while. The alcohol taste is non existent and is extremely drinkable. The coffee really comes out as the beer warms a bit as does the bitterness of the beer.

This is definitely one of the best coffee beers I've had. It definitely has a sedating but uplifting buzz to it from the coffee they inject into the beer. It tastes like a bold coffee but still like a beer because of the hoppy bitterness.... a fantastic beer.

Excellent stout! Big foamy head thick mouth feel. Nice coffee aromas with almost an espresso type after taste. Really enjoy this stout.

Excellent beer poured into my trusty pint glass. Dark black color with an okay head. Taste just like cappuccino. And it is irrestisable and very addicting. Probably the best i have had from Launitas. i would like to see more beers like this one. By far the best of the coffee type stouts i have had

One of my all time favorite stouts! My biggest complaint is that it never lasts more than a day or two at my local haunt. Very few Stouts can compare, in my opinion (GD Yeti comes to mind), to this beautiful beer!

Ok, I'm going to stop now, before I begin to gush.

Pours a rich deep brown with mahogany hues when held up to the light. The dense, creamy tan head leaves behind chunky rings of lace.

Aroma of chocolate and coffee/cappuccino upfront with hints of roasted malt in the background

Great flavor. Bold black coffee and dark chocolate with lots of roastiness. Some earthy hops seek in but the bitterness is supplies by the roasted malt and coffee. Finishes dry with some lingering roasted flavors. No taste of alcohol at all, very well hidden.

Smooth and oh so creamy. Perfect amount of carbonation. Incredibly drinkable.

Top notch.

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!

Dark stout color with coffee undertones and plenty of mouthfeel. Pours heavily and with a nice head that lingers. Aromas of chocolate and coffee with alcohol that gently snips from the glass: but a heavy enough beer that disguises the alcohol content. Mouthfeel is full and smooth and not overwhelming. Very drinkable. Plenty of character but not too heavy. I'll have another.

Poured from a bomber into a tulip on 05.06.14.

A: Midnight black with some red at the bottom. The tan head quickly recedes leaving some nice lacing.

S: Caramel, chocolate, coffee, toffee. Sweet smelling.

T: Raisins, coffee, caramel, toffee. A slight roastiness is there too on the back end.

M: Velvety smooth. Some crisp bubbles on the back end.

O: This was a nice dessert. The alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight burn in the throat. The coffee is not overpowering. It adds a nice roastiness to the sweetness. At room temperature, this beer shines. It becomes even smoother and the raisin flavor becomes more pronounced. This is a fantastic stout on its own. At $4.50 a bomber, it is a steal.

Rating: A

Apparently you can't give a beer a good rating without a review. I liked this a lot....very similar to breakfast stout. Sorry it's an outlier, but it is really good.

This motherfucker is MAJESTIC. Beautiful, dark, and fluffy out of the bomber, this stout is gorgeous. Every last drop is a treat that drinks like a coffee milkshake. Readily available as well - pick one of them bitches UP!
