Bomber poured into pint glass.

A: Dark brown. Not too dark, actually. Head is one finger mocha color. Retention is good.

S: I smell bitter, sharp dark chocolate, coffee, and a touch of pine.

T: Nice onslaught of stout flavors. Charred malt, chocolate, touch of espresso and coffee beans, ash, tobacco and cream. Nice lingering coffee finish.

M: Smooth....very smooth. Bit of prickly carbonation. Medium-heavy body and creamy.

O: A go-to coffee stout for me. Reasonable price and great taste. Easy to drink, as well. The 9% listed on the bottle is nowhere to be found at all.

Another Lagunitas winner.

Bomber to ordinary beer mug
Roughly cellar temperature

A: Deep dark brown, almost black with a reddish opacity. One finger of tan head with average lacing.

S: A potent mix of chocolate, roasted malts, cappuccino, and a tid bit of fruitiness.

T: The cappuccino flavor is certainly present, with roasted malts, and finishes off a little more chocolatey. Overall it's very sweet.

M: Smooth feel with a tickle of carbonation, pretty sticky.

O: Damn good beer, I'd like another, but first I'll be getting some Surly Coffee Bender and seeing how it compares.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A - It pours deep brown with obvious hints of deep amber and a thin tan head.

S - The aroma is fairly weak, but bitter cold coffee and roasted malt notes are there.

T - The coffee is overshadowed by the malt profile and overall the flavor is somewhat simplistic.

M - Medium bodied and moderately carbonated

O - Its good, but it isn't great. Although the coffee is there, it's quite hidden and overall complexity is lacking in the flavor category. I would certainly drink it again, but I would probably try to find a different coffee stout instead.

Poured from a bomber into my Southampton XV Anniversary snifter.

A: Jet black with a 3/4 finger off-white head.

S: Coffee, and raw dough.

T: roasted malts up front, followed by a blast off coffee that becomes increasingly pungent as it transcends from the mid-mouth to the back. A strong black coffee presence lingers around the mouth after the swallow. If you like black coffee, this beer is for you.

M: Quite smooth. Moderate carbonation.

Overal,l I found this beer quite complex.. The smell and the taste, to me, were two different worlds; the latter surpassing the former. In the nose I picked up faint coffee notes with a strong raw doughy smell. The taste is the standout factor of this brew. It is a coffee lovers dream. I'm a huge coffee fan, and this beer hit the spot. For the price, and quality of this beer I have not a single bad thing to say. A great entrance into the world of coffee stouts.

Cheers!

A fairly pronounced coffee aroma to this one, which comes as no surprise at all. Roasted malts and coffee dominate.

Pours dark, opaque brown in my glass with a somewhat loose light brown head to it.

Taste is a pretty pleasingly strong espresso note along with a roasted malt along with it. It tastes quite a bit like a cold, carbonated coffee beverage would....but definitely a high quality coffee here. Tasty. I can't say that I find it to be overally complex or anything, but I don't think it needs to be. It's a coffee stout, after all...with a great coffee taste to it and one that covers up the booze very well. Mouthfeel, for a stout, seems pretty thin however.

All in all, a great stout that I thoroughly enjoyed.

Serving type: on-tap
