Lagunitas Cappuccino Stout
Lagunitas Cappuccino Stout is an American Double/Imperial Stout brewed with Hardcore Coffee of Sebastopol, CA. 9.2% ABV.
I was expecting a bit of a more robust aroma on this stout, but it is mostly mild coffee and a bit of roasted malts. The taste makes up for that, very flavorful. Tasting a ton of espresso right out of the gate, chocolate, smoke, a touch of vanilla and a strong showing of hop bitterness on the finish. The high ABV is pretty much unnoticeable making this seasonal 22oz. bomber a bit dangerous to tackle by yourself. The feel on this is maybe a little thin for a Stout, but it’s nothing that is making the drinking experience less enjoyable.
This is a solid coffee stout at a great price, the kind of beer you can stock up on for everyday drinking so you can hang on to those rarer cellar stouts.
