This is really thin for a stout. In fact, it actually smells watery. I've had Porter's thicker than this. Not the worst thing I have had, but definitely is mislabeled.

Pours dark black. Holding up to normal light nothing, dining room chandelier faint ruby at the bulbs. Nice thick head of tiny bubbles, however doesn't stay long. It's the black hole of beer (in a good way)
Smell - Roasty malt, biscuit. No coffee?
Taste - THEREs the cappuccino. This is really tasty! Really like a cappuccino mixed with a stout. Balanced good flavor all around. Coffee, but not too bitter.
Mouthfeel - Surprisingly the aftertaste doesn't weigh heavily on your soul. I mean its there but not going to kill your taste buds.
Overall - WILL seek this out again. Not one to have multiples of in one night, but when wanting a good stout to relax with...this is it.

22oz bottled 2/1/18 in California poured into a snifter at fridge temp 9.3% ABV 29.50 IBU. The beer pours nearly black with medium brown highlights if held to light. The head is light brown and starts around a finger deep before receding to a film coat and thin ring around the glass. The aroma is full of cold brew coffee, but that's it. The taste is lighter on the coffee with strong roasted malt presence. There's a hint of sweetness that never competes with the roasty bitterness, but helps balance it. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, adequately carbonated and dry in the finish. There is a prickly feel that would normally indicate high carbonation, but I believe it comes from the roasted malt. Bitterness feels bigger that the advertised 29.5 IBU. Overall, good. A bit short on taste and feel to be top shelf.

So good. Lagunitas kills those dark brews every time. I already drank half the growler. Pouring the second half into the goblet now...

L: Same exact color as the Scotch ale I just reviewed. Looks black, but a faint reddish light penetrates the edges of the glass. when held to light, one can tell the actual color of the body is more of a dark amber brown. Head is minimal but retention is excellent.

S: Wow. So rich and appetizing. Cold brew coffee stands out, then milk chocolate and caramel sneak in along with some salty black olives. Acidic roast coffee finish, but no notable hops. First time I've been unable to detect any hop character in a Lagunitas brew. (Yes, I haven't had this one before.)

T: Yummy. Definitely better when warmer. Milk chocolate holds steady for a second, then coffee knocks it down, bringing by a splash of orange and vanilla, followed by cream and finally a strong bitter roast flavor. If you don't like hops, but you like beer, this is probably the only Lagunitas brew you will like. Ever. But if you like Imperial Stouts, I guarantee you'll love it.

F: Creamy, smooth, and rich, as stouts should be. Too heavy to be any other style. But I love it.

O: In my opinion, this is better than Founders Breakfast Stout. This is better than Old Rasputin. This is better than any unaged coffee stout I have ever had, except Ten Fidy and SOB. Why does this one have this shitty sub-four rating? Has the recipe been changed without notice? No clue. But this 2017 batch is off the hook.

Pour from a 22oz bomber into a snifter, Head is light tan in center but khaki on the edges, slightly penetrable black body with light only passing by on the edges, light splotchy lacing

Aroma is defiantly espresso roast, some reds in the back like cranberry and pomegranate, kinda weird for a cappuccino lol, some light chocolate notes aswell, some alchohol noticeable

Taste is bitter dark coffee, slightly charred flavor, somewhat creamy, maybe chocolate raisins, very little alchohol bitterness

Mouthfeel is thicker, nice low carbonation, but kinda milky like lactose, burn from higher abv is really well hidden

Overall for only $5-$6 at my local gas station I’m again impressed by lagunitas, it’s not the most complex thing you’ll find from them but in that price bracket it’s well worth the try.
