Beer Review: Lagunitas Cappuccino Stout

Laura says: Dark color, thin head. Strong carbonation, thin-medium body. Very mild, with mild hops. Very pleasant and drinkable. But, where's the cappuccino? There's a mild coffee flavor and aroma, but this beer isn't nearly as thick and creamy as I would expect from something called a Cappuccino Stout. 3.8

Russ says: Poured dark and thick but with little head. Actually smelled more fruity and piney than it did coffeey (is that a word?). Medium-bodied and pretty light tasting for what I was expecting. Not overly sweet, good balance, clean finish. Surprisingly, very little coffee taste. For a drink called a Cappuccino Stout you'd expect something with a real espresso punch. Not so. I think I would like it better if it were called a something-porter and not a cappuccino stout. 3.5
