Hammered Barrel Mug, 14 fl oz
Nice look and feel...doesn't keep coffee hot
Looks great, feels great, holds a good amount of coffee, but because of the air hole in the lid it just doesn't keep coffee hot for very long. Disappointing. When the opening to drink is closed, the air hole should close too. If Starbucks would add better insulating properties in the mug itself, and keep heat from escaping, this could be a real winner. As it currently stands, it's just average compared to other insulating mugs I have (Keurig makes an outstanding thermal mug that stays hot for hours).

Fun and functional
Saw this quaint little item in the store, and then ordered online. It is larger than I had expected, and a bit heavy when full, but it makes a nice morning coffee nightstand item. The sip spout takes a bit of practice, but the fact that it closes all the way is great for keeping liquids hot. Terrific that it is microwaveable for refills on lazy weekend mornings.

Rather poor produc t
The Hammered Barrel Mug is less than a satisfactory product. It leaks if you have the opening fully open. It is actually probably better without the lid on it. So, on the whole, it is moderately attractive but not a very good mug.

Perfect "Dad" Mug!
Purchased this as part of a set with a coffee press and coffee for Father's Day ... so thrilled with it! It's exactly as it's pictured ~ and everything I thought it would be as a Starbucks mug. Perfect size, hammered flat finish, easy to hold and even comes with a lid. So handsome!

Pretty mug, lose the lid
I found the mug to be very substantial. Pretty design and looks great. But have the same problem as everyone else with the lid. Doesn't fit very well.
