Coffee, coffee, coffee, For the price it's great, but only good not great when compared to similar coffee stouts. As always with Lagunitas however, at the price point it is a great beer and hard to beat if not impossible.

22oz Bomber poured into pint glass.

Very dark black color with dark caramel head. Good initial lacing.

Very malty scent with hints of burnt chocolate, fig and coffee.

A bit tart to first bite (can taste the 8.9%ABV), but overall a refreshing taste. Full malt throughout with chocolate and a light burnt coffee taste to finish off.
Quite bitter at the end. No hop notes that I tasted.

Overall I'm glad I picked this up. Wanted to try it for a while. More chocolate than coffee as the name states. A little too boozy for me but still a great grab!

Very nice black color to it. Being a huge coffee person, I was pleased with the amount of coffee it provides. It is definitely not overwhelming in coffee flavoring what so ever. All at the same time, it keeps the foundation of a well structured stout. I can totally picture myself drinking this by my fireplace..

Dark fruit with very little of any thing else in the flavor mix. Not bad but not good either.

Black but letting some red light through, with a fluffy head that leaves lacing all the way down the glass. Smells like sweet espresso. Great espresso flavor, some sweetness, spicy almost. Good body. Awesome bomber for the price!

One of my favorites and pretty cheap. Very bold coffee flavor on top of a very full body dark roast malt base.

22oz bottle poured into 12oz glass for tasting

A – Rich dark black with a tan foamy head. Head dissipates and settles to a thin cap, leaving behind nice lacing in its wake.

S – Oddly muted, but notes of coffee, chocolate, dark roasted malts, a little sweetness.

T – Very nice, rich, mocha, cocoa, coffee, espresso, milky sweetness.

M – Not overly thick, there is a note of alcohol on the finish, which is long and lingering.

O – Nicely done again by Lagunitas, wonderful value and great flavors.

On draft at Black Sheep, Dublin.
Puffy tan head over oily black body. 4
Raisin, dark chocolate, and burnt marshmallow make a faint nose. 3.75
Maltesers, treacle, a touch of camp coffee, a roasty kick and some spicy hops to end. Creamy coffee hard candy thing when it warms. 3.75
Harsh branchy cut to end and lean linger.
Round, smooth, medium, slight heat. 4

Big and smooth, but not so much on the coffee. What coffee there is leans to the oily, bitter side of the beans which, combined with a certain unctuousness, adds up to something like instant with Coffeemate. Plus an oddly twiggy hop bite, an unwieldy strength - a very drinkable stout, don't get me wrong. But also a lot I don’t like from a brewery I otherwise love and dies a death next to something like Founders Breakfast. 3.75
