On tap @ the brewery. Pours thick inky brown with thin mocha head. Aroma is dark charred malt and a hint of chocolate. Taste is smooth super roasty malt with mild chocolate finish. I worked through 2 pints and gotta say, I just couldnít make out any coconut. At all. Weird. Tasty stout nonetheless, nice flavor and body.

Can from Bobís.

Dark pour, sudsy tan head. Roasty nose, somewhat sour, a hint of what, with a little bit of imagination, might be sweet coconut. Slightly sour grain flavor, coffee, heavy on the cocoa nibs. Not much coconut, could be sweeter given the other components. Almost passable but not better than that.

First tried off tap at wob, now having it in 16oz can from wob. Black color with almost zero clarity. Aroma of espresso and coconut. Mild carbonation on the first sip with chocolate and alcohol prevalent. Surprisingly pungent alcohol flavor for 5.3 abv. Prob because itís in conjunction with the burnt malt and coffee flavors and that Iím drinking it cold. I remember this brew being sweeter on draft and also more enjoyable. Still a nice brew nontheless.

Can. Pours a near black color with a moderate tan head on it. Now, I have to state that this was my wifeís beer, as I HATE coconut. The nose wasnít as bad as I had feared, as there was some nice roasting and coffee notes in there; however, there was some noticeable, though slightly subtler coconut tones. Taste was quite roasty and (thankfully) didnít have the coconut elements the nose did.

Can:   Deep brown, thin sudsy off-white head, little lacing.   Ashy nose, some roasted malts, but not so much on the coconut.   Wha?   Where is the coconut on the tongue.   Pale yet somewhat sweet roasted malts, and thatís about it.   Has a milk stout like lactose sweetness, but not so much on the coconut.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, leaning on the thing side.   Finishes a little flat, soft roasted malts, light sweetness, perhaps a smidge of coconut.   On terms of this being a coconut stout, it fails on coconut and also on stout.   Way too light overall.

16oz can. Dark brown color with tan head. Dark chocolate, coconut, jet fuel exhaust, cancelled flight, earthy dirt aromas. Medium body with average carbonation. Chocolate, dark roast malt, vanilla flavors with a lingering deep roast malt bitterness to finish____good

Tallboy Can. Pitch black with a substantial layer of cappuccino foam. Aroma is a blend of toasted coconut, charred malts and dark chocolate. The flavor delivers a healthy dose of coconut, coffee and cocoa at the start along with some roasted malt and Kahlķa in the finish. Good choice to pair with a chocolate dessert.

skoisirius (1632) - Earth, Washington, USA - DEC 24, 2013
Now that itís warm I can properly rate this. Smells of coconut and milk chocolate. Flavors are sweetened coconut and burnt chocolate, with a nice roasted malt flavor that goes into a burnt touch towards and into the finish. Hints of nuts and coffee as well. Good stuff here!

Chocolate aromas pours very dark with ruby highlights with minimal head retention and lacing. Dry, chocolate, roast, espresso, slight oilyness earth and is drinkable with a low viscosity. Drink Warm!

Can thanks to glkaiser! Pours deep reddish black with a small brown creamy head and nice lacing. Aroma is roasty, chocolate, toasted coconut, ashtray, Flavor is the same, lactic plus cocoa sweetness, definitely coconut. Overall medium sweet but with offsetting medium bitterness. Full body, creamy mouthfeel. This. Is. A. Good. Beer. So there!

Dark brown in color, with a thin tan head. Nice light coconut aroma lingers as the chocolate and coffee favors come out nicely. Very tasty stout with added light coconut flavors. Very good beer.
