look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Look: Very dark brown with a light shade of brown resting on the bottom of the glass. 1/2 inch tan foamy head and decent retention

Smell: Roasted coffee and chocolate

Taste: Very strong roasted coffee flavor on this bad boy. A lot stronger coffee flavor than I remember when I had it on draft. Honestly not much else going on

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with medium carbonation and a very sticky finish

Overall: Good beer great coffee flavor. Well done.

A- Pours a see through cola color, topped with a 2-1/2 finger mocha colored head. Light lacing throughout.

S- Bittersweet espresso. Some hops.

T- Bitter burnt coffee/espresso. Somewhat bitter aftertaste.

M- Light carbonation. Too thin for a stout, in my opinion.

O- Having developed a liking for Lagunitas, this was a disappointment for me. Sat on for quite awhile. Perhaps not stored properly?? However, having said that...I could see through this brew. Again, too thin for a stout.

Love Lagunitas, finally got around to trying this one. Pours a brownish red color. Aroma is of faint coffee. Taste is medium to heavy bodied, great mouthfeel to it. Nice hop taste on the tough, roasted coffee comes through strong, lots of roasted malts come through as well. Delicious beer, tons of taste and hides the ABV well. Glad I gave it a go, try it out for a good beer,

American Bomber style bottle. Good label.

Pours a dark amber brown, blackish body. Creamy foam head... good lace, and retention.

Aromatic. Sweet Coffee, rich coffee, expresso...

The flavors are rich, full bodied, but smooth. Malt sweetness, rich coffee tones. Creamy feel.

Overall this was an excellent brew, one of my favorites.

A good buy.

Somewhat odd dark reddish brown color. Nearly opaque. Quarter inch of white head settles quickly. Lacing is thin and not particularly clingy.

Aroma is boozy first, then fruity and finally coffee. Not a prominent coffee note. The taste is pretty much the same, nice, but surprisingly different that what I expected. The roasted coffee is most noticeable in the finish, again with the aggressive booze and dark fruity notes up front. As it warms the espresso flavor comes to the fore a little more. Remains almost winey.

Fairly high carbonation, modestly sticky. A little thin, not very creamy.

Interesting beer. Not your typical coffee stout. With a name like "Cappucino" you expect a lot of milky creaminess and rounded, smooth coffee character. The coffee you get here is more a black roasted espresso flavor. Not much sweetness either. And frankly the roasted aspect isn't particularly strong when compared with other coffee stouts. It tastes good, though, and is worth a shot at the (usual) Lagunitas low price.
