I was really surprised to see how strong this is. While drinking, thought this couldn't be any more than 6%. For that alone this beer gets big ups. Overall this beer is quite smooth with a muted coffee flavor with a nice strong roasted barley malt quality.

Smells of chocolate and Colombian coffee grounds. Strong coffee taste but it's different, I like it. Very evident dark chocolate taste which is rich and satisfying. Carbonated nicely. A very well done stout from Lagunitas- I would buy again.

Poured into a shaker pint glass. Dark reddish-brown color, nice thick head and good lacing. Aroma is lots of coffee, and some dark roasty malts, and a slight peppery smell. Taste is nearly identical to the smell, with lots of coffee up front, and a very slight pepper tone on the back end. Mouthfeel is thick and creamy - very nice. Overall, this is typical of almost all of Lagunitas' beers, great beers at a nice price.

Good, decent stout. Nothing special. But for the price I will get again.

Poured from 22oz bomber into karmeliet tripel glass. Very dark appearance as expected. Smells very good rich coffee scent. Taste is everything you'd want in a coffee stout. Good mouthfeel with minimal alcohol burn. Overall a great example of the style.

Poured from bomber into snifter
A- near black with a brown tint. Slim off-white head. Sparse bubbles and moderate lace.
S- coffee and chocolate at first but that gives way to some dark fruit sweetness and some sweet pepper notes as well. Maybe bell pepper.
T- bitter roasted malt, coffee (but just a hint), spice from a mild pepper, and then more bitter chocolate malt in the end.
M- nice velvety, creamy texture that coats the palette nicely. Alcohol is hidden well too.
O- surprisingly spicier than I expected but it mixes well with the coffee.
