Appearance: A deep amber/brown with a manila/coffee-swirl head. Pretty small and loose, and only moderate retention. Some foam on the glasswall. Meh, I've seen better.

Smell: Roasty, obviously, with an intriguing mix of coffee and chocolate. Assertively hopped as well.

Flavor/Mouthfeel: Whoa. Bazooka blast of carmelized coffee -- much more intense than the scent would indicate. Chocolate (mild), fig sweetness, sugar sourness, but balanced against a dry blend of roasted malt, coffee acidity, and hop bite. Coffee burns into the nostrils; espresso lingers on forever. The mouthfeel is somewhat syrupy, but fairly light and crisp, especially for a beer this big.

Drinkability: Excellent. The coffee brings out the smooth sweetness and dark flavors of this stout beautifully. The coffee flavor might be a bit over-the-top for some, but I love it. Another good one from the fine folks at Lagunitas -- keep 'em coming!

This was a bomber poured into a mug.

This beer really surprised me. It pours a dark black with a tight head with tiny bubbles and has amazing retention as well as amazing lacing. It smells sweet and very chocolately with a hint of the coffee beans that apparent upon taste. In the taste I get a plethora of things which my pallet is no where near capable of truly explaining. Initially it is sweet and mouth warming and then I get a coffee taste which if I could find this coffee I wild buy it and drink it hourly. The after taste is amazingly pleasant and very reminiscent of the initial taste. As far as mouthfeel I feel like this is one of the biggest bodied beers I had had in months. Great arbonation and great full bodied beer. I would HIGHLY recommend this beer to anyone who likes stouts or coffee. In a moment of full disclosure I do love both stouts an coffee.

This is an amazing beer.

It's 8pm, New Years Eve, and this is my first drink of the night. Just back from playing some basketball, and excited to throw a couple crafts back tonight. Figured I would start here, as it was the first thing I saw when I opened the fridge...

Poured from a bomber into a Old raspy pint glass...

A - Poures dark brown with a one finger tan head. Head dissipates fairly quick, and lacing is minimal...

S - Coffee, and caramel. Besides that, the smell is pretty docile...

T - Dark chocolate, dark roasted malts, and caramel. Ends on a coffee biterness followed by a smooth warmth of alcohol. Alcohol you do taste is very smooth, and is not over the top. Just enough to let you that it is present. Tasty...

M - Medium bodied with a mild amount of carbonation. Kinda watered down considering the style...

D - Can't beat the price on this one. Definitely something that I will be picking up again...

Happy New Years...

A: In my stemless wine glass, this stout poured about half a finger of head on top of pitch black brew.

S: There's a pronounced spice from the coffee here that's quite unusual, but I like it. Notes of caramel as well. With a bit of warming, this thing starts to shine: notes of oak come in the fore.

T: The coffee infusion does good work here--it goes with the heavy malt backbone and roasted cocoa flavors. The alcohol is well-hidden, too. The finish is thick and meaty.

M: Rich and decadent, but there's little carbonation to note. Medium-bodied.

O: Lagunitas has always been at least fairly impressive, and I would rate this around that area. It's got a few twists to the coffee porter/stout that I like, but it does nothing spectacular.

Pours a deep brown with some maroonish hues. A small, light tan, quite foamy head sits aloft. Aromas of toasted malt with a sweet creaminess. Alcohol is notiacble, but not overpowering. Thick flavors of cream, chocolate and toasty malt. No cappuccino/coffee noticable, but adds to the milky texture. Coating mouthfeel, but not too heavy. Alcohol is well disguised. A pretty good beer, but nothing too exciting. The coffee component is not strong enough, IMO. The creamy texture is a nice diversion from those dry stouts. Give it a try if you find it, but no need to really hunt it out.
