Pours thinner than expected with a finger of light tan head that sees some nice lacing.

Not a big nose on this one. Smells mildly sweet with a faint whiff of coffee and roasted grains. There's also a hint of Sambuca-like booze.

First sip is a little thin with plenty of black coffee bitterness. Then the flavor rounds out with a sort of creaminess. There's some lactic tang (is lactose at work here?) and roasted barley. The dark, bitter coffee/chocolate flavors are concentrated in that inky sort of way that I enjoy in big stouts. A deep caramel richness develops which, coupled with sweet cream, results in a sweeter brew than most imperial coffee stouts.

Mouthfeel is creamy, despite its thinness in the glass. It really opens up on the palate and leaves a reasonably long sweet and roasty finish.

0verall this beer, like most Lagunitas products, is a great bargain. Big on taste -- like a milk stout on steroids, dosed with coffee -- but wont weigh you down. Doesn't drink like a 9.2% beer -- it goes down easy, but you'll feel your body start warming up pretty quickly.

A: looks like a stout, very dark coffee black. Little bit of head on the just barely covering
S: sweetness, coffee and espresso aromas. Was expecting a little more
T: very sweet. Looks of coffee, kind of does remind me of a cappuccino or macchiato. A little harshness like eating dark chocolate.
M: a little syrupy, with medium carbonation
O: pretty awesome for the price, was only $3.99 for a bomber, hard to beat

I enjoyed this very much, not a thick stout at all. But very good layering to this stout. You can taste the coffee, chocolate, and cappuccino aspects in different ways. They hit the taste buds at different times, which is great.

This is a sessionable stout.
