Lagunitas Cappuccino Stout ....

Tonight I will have a Cappuccino Stout, "Ale Brewed With Coffee", from Lagunitas Brewing Company.  The 1 pint, 6 ounce bottle shows 9% ABV and 29.5 IBUs.  It is a limited release.

This beer poured with a thin, rich brown head.  Beer color is a very dark reddish brown.  When the glass is held up to the light, only a tiny amount of light shines through.  The aroma has a good amount of chocolate, some booziness, and a little coffee.  The coffee really comes through in the taste.  There is also some cocoa, a toasted quality, some molasses.  The booziness doesn't come through as much in the taste as it did in the aroma - only a hint.  Leaves a little sweet, bitter and coffee for the aftertaste.
