So says the label of the Lagunitas big bottle winter seasonal, Cappuccino Stout. I can attest to its deliciousness as a whole, the FDA has no power over me. As I wrote on Twitter when I was in the throes of a Lagunitas passion session (a Brown Shugga' and whole bottle of Cappuccino Stout's 8.8% ABV), "it's like drinking really good coffee, but beerlike". I thought I would come up with something better, but I didn't. Unlike most coffee beers, which I don't typically enjoy, the Cappuccino Stout didn't have a burnt flavor, it just tasted like good coffee.
I'm not going to jump and down and demand that you go out and buy this beer. If you don't like coffee, I don't know if you'll like the Cappuccino Stout. What I will do is tell you that, at this time, there are only 30 cases (which is less than the amount of Infinium that hit town) of this coffee goodness spread throughout the Missouri side of the state line. 20% of it is in the Lukas Liquor in Martin City. It won't be the easiest to find elsewhere and it won't last long. If you're like me and love coffee but always dislike coffee beers, Cappuccino Stout is the beer to try. If you already like coffee beers, you may proclaim this the best one. I do.
*Full disclosure, I received this bottle gratis with no conditions on what I write about it. My opinion is my own, but you can be the judge. Cappuccino Stout retails for around $4.
