Dark, roasty, and the hint of hops that the west coast stout provides. The malt and coffee meld well with the hops and coffee aromas. Taste is pretty bitter, but not atypical for the range of the style. A very solid to good stout and price wise a great value

Had on tap. Pours opaque, black in color with minimal head. Taste is char and milk chocolate. Heavy bodied, low carbonation and roasty. Makes for a solid stout. Will get this again.

22oz bottle. Jet black with a lacing of bubbles. Not much smell, a faint hint of smoky malt. Full-bodied. Taste is very smooth, with a mix of chocolate, coffee, smoke, and a touch of bitterness at the end. A solid example of the style and good value for the price point, but it could be better.

Great smoky taste. I have this on hand year round . Purchased in 22oz. Great tasting imperial stout. My favorite so far from Lagunitas that I have tasted!

Growler into pint glass. Pours an inky black with a thin tan head that dissipates rapidly. Initial impression is rich, smooth chocolate, coffee, and roasted malts. The flavors are pretty standard for an RIS; the smoothness (particuarly considering the ABV and the freshness) are not. Finish follows taste. Good but not great.

22oz bottled 10/30/17 (Chicago) poured into a teku glass at fridge temp 9.9% ABV 72 IBU. The beer pours very dark brown with chocolate tan colored head. The head recedes to a fine film, thin ring and some lacing. The aroma is mostly roast with some chocolate. Taste is more roast, chocolate and coffee up front with a big roasty bitterness to close things out. Mouthfeel is full to medium bodied, adequately carbonated and undry in the finish. It's not cloying or sweet, it just leaves a wet roasty feel on the tongue. Overall, very good. Not the best example of a straight up RIS, but a good value at $5/bomber.
