Nothing subtle with these Lagunitas sesonals, love the bitterness!

The best coffee flavored beer I can remember having. The coffee flavor is very prominent and stays throughout the entire beer. Very dark body with a dark tan head, this beer was a very welcome surprise, although most of what comes from Lagunitas is pretty good. If you like stouts and coffee, this is the one for you, and at just $5 a bomber and 9.2% with a low IBU, it's very drinkable.

Look is a lovely dark brown that picks up some coppery tones through the light with a thick, chocolate mouse head that lingers.
Smell is coffee soaked raisins. Sweet and tart and hinting at a booziness that you usually find in bourbon stouts.
Taste is very bitter. Lots of coffee and a hint of chocolate and that ever present Lagunitas hoppy backbone. The raisins and bourbon in the nose don't come through hardly at all.
Feel is a little thin for my taste with a stout. Very clean but not really what I look for in a stout. Has the staying power of a much lighter beer.
Overall a strong showing from Lagunitas. I like their Russian Imperial a bit more as a stout but this one doesn't disappoint and really highlights the coffee flavor. Also works well with their ubiquitous hop presence. Also, though I'm drinking this one on a particularly rainy night here in norcal, a great stout for the warmer months. And probably a good choice for folks who like the drier stout style, and at 9% they aren't holding anything back. Certainly a beer any Lagunitas fan would never be disappointed by.

Ok medium brown pour. Head sticks around for awhile. Smell of hops and with my tongue, taste of hop bitterness. To some it balances the nuances of the coffee/chocolate creaminess. I get the hop flavor more than anything else so for me it reminds me of Storm King. Still good and perhaps I'll develop a like for the bitterness in time. Will age one just to see
