Bomber poured into a Lagunitas mason jar glass (snagged two of these in Montana of all places). Pours a dark chocolate brown (near black) with around three fingers of tan creamy foam. Aroma is dark roast, earthy spice, and resinous hops right off the bat, with a whiff of sweet rum. Unique stout, this. Notably hop-forward, leaf and earth but little aggressive ashy character (a plus in my book). Getting some strong spicy notes that recall ginseng (read: dirt) and turmeric, along with the expected dark roast coffee, a little toffee or butterscotch, some assertive boozy flavors coming through. Any actual coffee flavor is nicely melded into the mix. This is not a particularly sweet stout. Nor is it particularly ashy or burnt. Really, and maybe I'm just strange, its the earthy and spicy hops coming forward, along with some chocolate and diacetyl that starts low key and slowly becomes more prominent over time. Low carbonation and mid-range body, not terribly thick. Finish is interestingly devoid of harsh bitterness but there is ample hop flavor and more roasted notes. A curious beer, this. Perhaps more to my liking than other coffee stouts that register more in the charred range.

Appearance - Pours a dark chocolate brown with a finger of foamy tan head.

Smell - espresso, roasted malts, semi-sweet chocolate, molasses.

Taste - Hit upfront with the espresso followed by the roasted malts, semi-sweet chocolate and molasses.

Mouthfeel - Medium to full bodied with light to moderate carbonation. Finishes with a lingering espresso roastiness.

Overall - A well-executed and enjoyable coffee stout from Lagunitas. Excellent espresso notes with a good supporting cast coming from the malts, chocolate, and molasses make this a definite stand out. Well done, Lagunitas.
