This at a glass from the distance with no direct light looks like a stout, but if you are having this during the day time or hold this to any light it really just looks like a brown ale, which terms of color and flavor is like a light stout.

On terms of flavor, It delivers nicely. You get that cocoa/ sweet coffee presence along with a light roastiness in the background. It's almost watery. It makes me wonder how Lagunitas can make a 10% abv beer and make it weak on flavor and alcohol presence.

Overall, it's pretty average. If you are looking for a really nice American Double Stout I would look elsewhere, but at 4$ a bottle, this is nice for someone without the big money or to bring to a gathering with some who are maybe not so adept to bigger craft beers.

This beer still makes me go "hmmmm..."

A. Decent head, not perfect for a stout. Lacing pretty mild throughout. pretty dark in color but not quite mud

S. smells awesome, like robust coffee. I was actually expecting to like this even more than I did based on the smell.

T. Great initial cappuccino flavor, but has a sour bite on the end that is not what I want in a stout.

M. Thick, Solid

O. Can't get over the sourness to fully enjoy this beer. Good brew but not great. Would not buy again but a solid effort
