Lagunitas Brewing Company Imperial Stout
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Lagunitas Brewing Company Imperial Stout.
From the Lagunitas Brewing Company website: “Dark and thick like your favorite dessert with a Bonus. Highly roasted malted barley, and plenty of it, gives the beer uncommon richness and smoky, roasty depth… kinda like a hydraulic sandwich in a glass.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours pitch black with a thin tan light tan head and great lacing.
Aroma: Roasted grains and loads of chocolate, coffee, brown sugar and caramel.
Taste: Large chocolate malts take center stage with a nice coffee finish. Nutty, malty, sweet, caramelly and balanced with a touch of hops.
Overall: Super smooth and tasty, Lagunitas Brewing Company’s Imperial Stout is amazingly good. Of course I shouldn’t be surprised as I am a HUGE fan of Lagunitas. At 9.9% ABV this will always have a place in my beer fridge. I love it!
