Hopped and Bothered; Lagunitas Cappuccino Stout
Lagunitas -- Cappuccino Stout
Alcohol content 9.2%. Bought this right off the shelf for under four bucks. Cracked it open and was greeted by a slapdash amount of espresso and bittersweet hops. The first sip is absolutely loaded with bitter coffee and creamy malt. The mouth feel is stupendous, if a bit dry on the finish. The cleansing effect of the coffee readies you for another sip, which rocks.
Buy if: you have $4 and want to spend it wisely.
Overall: a deceptive, hearty stout filled with morning coffee and late night fun.
