Poured from a growler from TurtleCreek in Bethlehem GA (shout out).

Look - This beer pours black and is next to non translucent when held up to light. The head is a heathy tan with very decent lacing. I've seen better lacing but that's beyond the point.

Smell - Very rich, slightly sweet at the top and then the coffee comes through like a champ to round out a complex smell.

Taste - I taste a nice heathy dose of hops in front. The middle comes the dark cappachono flavor but it still retains the hops. Nice touch.

Feel - Not thin and not heavy mouth feel, they found a nice spot in between the two. Maybe a little too much carbonation, but at this point I'm pea picking. Finishes slightly dry for my taste but it's not a deal breaker.

Overall - A very nicely made beer by a company who obviously takes pride in its craft brews. I would absolutely buy this bear again. Cheers!

Coffee, coffee, coffee, For the price it's great, but only good not great when compared to similar coffee stouts. As always with Lagunitas however, at the price point it is a great beer and hard to beat if not impossible.

22oz Bomber poured into pint glass.

Very dark black color with dark caramel head. Good initial lacing.

Very malty scent with hints of burnt chocolate, fig and coffee.

A bit tart to first bite (can taste the 8.9%ABV), but overall a refreshing taste. Full malt throughout with chocolate and a light burnt coffee taste to finish off.
Quite bitter at the end. No hop notes that I tasted.

Overall I'm glad I picked this up. Wanted to try it for a while. More chocolate than coffee as the name states. A little too boozy for me but still a great grab!

Very nice black color to it. Being a huge coffee person, I was pleased with the amount of coffee it provides. It is definitely not overwhelming in coffee flavoring what so ever. All at the same time, it keeps the foundation of a well structured stout. I can totally picture myself drinking this by my fireplace..

Dark fruit with very little of any thing else in the flavor mix. Not bad but not good either.

Black but letting some red light through, with a fluffy head that leaves lacing all the way down the glass. Smells like sweet espresso. Great espresso flavor, some sweetness, spicy almost. Good body. Awesome bomber for the price!

One of my favorites and pretty cheap. Very bold coffee flavor on top of a very full body dark roast malt base.
