Lagunitas Cappuccino Stout

Big, bold brew; cold coffee concoction.  Put them together, and Lagunitas gives us Cappuccino Stout.  Of course some of their best flavors have to be limited releases, but that’s part of what makes Lagunitas exciting – I’m always looking for their newest ale.  This one has high alcohol content by volume (9.2%) yet surprisingly low IBU (29.5).  Usually I like high IBU for the flavor impact; however, instead of being hoppy, the coffee comes through strongest.  I’ll gripe for a little bit when I can’t find this on the shelves any longer, but then Lagunitas will put out something else wonderful.
