Lagunitas Brewing Company Cappuccino Stout
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Today’s featured beer is Lagunitas Brewing Company Cappuccino Stout. I think I’ve made it clear my love of all beers Lagunitas brews, but I’ll keep singing their praises as long as they keep churning out beers that wow me.
From the Lagunitas Brewing Company website:” Big, Dark and Scary Imperial-esque Stout Brewed With Plenty of Dark Malts and Roast Barley And Loads of Sebastopol’s Hardcore Coffee for Deep Roasty Flavors and that Extra Krunk.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a dark brown (nearly black) with amber hues with a nice tan head and good lacing.
Aroma: Coffee is the most prevalent scent with roasted and chocolate malts, caramel and vanilla bean.
Taste: Huge flavor! Coffee, dark chocolate, a little malt sweetness and slight hop presence.
Overall: Very tasty and BIG, Lagunitas Brewing Company’s Cappuccino Stout is very good and at 9.2% ABV very drinkable. This is a perfect beer for cold weather drinking. Pick some up and head outside!
