Black body and a long lived, khaki colored head.

I got a nice, mellow ground coffee aroma along with a strong roasted maltiness. Fairly subdued overall. The taste is a good deal more assertive than the smell. The base stout seems pretty one dimensional to me, a roasted almost to char malt flavor. Nice enough, but some chocolate notes would have worked well. The coffee flavor was well balanced and mild until the finish. I loved the long, lingering dark roasted coffee finish.


I definitely enjoyed this one and $5 for a bomber in PA is an amazing price. The rest of you lucky SOBs probably pay 3 or 4. I'm just finishing up my case of Founder's Breakfast Stout and I recently tried Victory at sea for the first time. This is good, but it doesn't measure up to those guys.

Pours very very dark brown with a finger or so of head that dissipates moderately slowly. Strong smell of cocoa and coffee. Strong coffee and darker chocolate taste, heavier on the coffee. Smooth, almost no bitterness. Malted barley aftertaste with nice hint of coffee. Overall, a very fine stout, may be in elite status. I really though highly of this brew.

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.
