Lagunitas Cappaccino Stout

Yummy.  Coffee and beer, all mixed up into one.   This is a pretty heavy beer for a warm summer’s day, but the abundance of rich flavors to excite your taste buds makes it hard to resist on any occasion.   It pours with a nice thick brown head, and the initial scents are of coffee, chocolate, and roasted malt.  This is a pretty heavily hopped stout, and in the middle, you taste that, as there’s a good bit of grapefruit behind the leading flavor of coffee.   The finish is thick and sweet with milk and chocolate, and right at the very tail end is a bit of pine from the hops.   There’s a lot going on in this beer and I’m really enjoying it.

I give it a 4.6 out of 5.
