Can from Malt & Vine. Can was a bit too full. Pours dark brown/black with a slight tan head. Aroma is chocolate, and I think I can actually smell coconut. Med body. Flavor is actually quite coconut. Followed by dry, fairly bitter, chocolate. Kudos for getting in a easily detectable amount of coconut. Usually I donít get it. Coconut keeps coming back as chocolate goes away. Good stuff.

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

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.

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 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!

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.

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!

Poured from a can jet black and no head, almost flat. Aroma mostly of chocolate and smoky oak. Body is flat. Flavor is not as promising as the description. Bitter chocolate, very slight hints of coconut.

Maylani's coconut stout. Very nice. Low ABV stout that is not sweet, but quite roasty, and with a beautiful coconut flavor infusion. Would be an A- beer, but the mouthfeel is thin, reflective of its low ABV in all likelihood. Nevertheless, recommended! B+ ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
