I poured a bottle into a mug.

Appearance- Dark brown with half a fingers worth of tan head. The head disappeared quickly and there are light amounts of runny lace.

Smell- Coffee and roasted malt aromas.

Taste- Roasted malt and moderate coffee flavors with hints of cocoa and char. No hint of booziness from the high ABV.

Mouthfeel- Full bodied, creamy, and smooth. Low amount of carbonation.

Overall- Not too bad. I have had coffee stouts with more coffee flavor but this is still worth checking out.

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.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 2.75

Aroma: Stale coffee, musty. Not appealing.

Appearance: Black with a decent cream colored head. Leaves pretty good lace.

Taste: Bitter coffee flavor. Much like the smell, there's a strange offness to it. Tastes alot like a used coffee filter smells if that makes sense at all. Not for me.

Mouthfeel: A bit more carbonated than typical stouts. Feel is not bad.

Overall: This is just not my thing. I can see coffee lovers digging this but it's just strange to me. I do think this should be drunk at a colder temp than other stouts as the warmer this became, the stranger the taste became.
