Cappuccino Stout

I received a bottle of Lagunitas Cappuccino Stout for Christmas a couple of years ago. I've been saving it for a special occasion. Either that or I keep forgetting that I have it in my stash. I'll go with the 'special occasion' scenario, it sounds less like my brain is mushifying.

Of course I had to try it when saw it on tap at Porky's. Especially since I haven't had a Lagunitas brew in a while. Now I really can save my bottle for a special occasion.

Lagunitas Cappuccino Stout ( 9.20% ABV) is an American Imperial Stout. It pours a deep dark brown with ruby highlights. The head is thick and creamy. It lingers and leaves behind nice glass grabbing lace.

The aroma is of roasty malt and fresh brewed coffee.

The taste is more of the same with hints of dark chocolate. This brew is barely sweet and pleasantly bitter. A good balance of flavors. The alcohol is nicely concealed. The finish is roasty with coffee notes.

The mouth feel is smooth and full.

Lagunitas Cappuccino Stout is a tasty example of a good coffee stout. Smooth, creamy, and delicious!

Overall: very good
