Lagunitas Cappuccino Stout Review and Ice Cream Float Recipe!
Remember that time I hated a Lagunitas beer? Well it has happened twice in a week. I know, I’ve probably really scared you off from this review, but here’s my disclaimer.
DISCLAIMER: I probably hate ALL stouts and doppelweizen’s if I hated Lagunitas’.
We’ll get to the review of the Lagunitas DoppelWeizen later along with:
-Lagunitas Sumpin’ Wild
-Lagunitas Hop Stoopid
-Lagunitas Wilco Tango Foxtrot
-Lagunitas Lucky 13
I literally made that list as a reminder to myself.
What in the heck is this post about anyway? Oh yeah horse snot. I mean Lagunitas Cappuccino Stout. But after tasting, the two could probably be the same thing.
Background: Lagunitas. A stout. 8.8% ABV. Cute puppy on bottle.
I actually tried this little guy because I wanted to make an ice cream float with it. I’ll get to the receipe in a second, but it was the taste of the beer not the vanilla ice cream I hated. I put it to my lips and I wanted to curl up in the fetal position and die. As akin with all my Lagunitas reviews:
Horse snot > Burnt hair > Gasoline > Lag Cappuccino Stout
It literally burned like fire going down my esophagus and when it reached my tummy I felt like gnomes were using tiny, tiny hammers and pounding at the sides.
But hey, if you like stouts, I bet this is the best one. I mean, it is Lagunitas after all. But warning to novice beer drinkers I guess: this isn’t a fun little hoppy pilsner. This is the devil’s brew.
If you decide to take the risk. MAKE THIS:
Lagunitas Cappuccino Stout Float
8 oz Lag cappuccino stout
1 big scoop vanilla ice cream
1 unicorn tear
2 tsp pixie dust
Put ice cream in mug, cover with stout, top with whip!
