COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
No. 15, much like a certain fabled two-piece candy bar of our youth, rich, dark chocolate notes accented with aromatic toasted coconut. What would add depth and character to this already delicious combo, we wondered? The answer is time (6 months) well spent in the very best rum barrels available.

(12oz bottle thanks to jjfoodie) clear deep amber/ruby, excellent lacing. Nose of almond joy, milk chocolate, alcohol, big beer, fairly sweet, complex too. Taste of milk chocolate, toasty coconut, rum, barrel, sweet, alcoholic, really amazing flavors i’ve never tasted in a beer.

Bottle to snifter (thanks dudeabide). Looks good; cola with razor-thioff-white lacing. Smells solid; coconut and rum with dark malt notes. Tastes like it smells with. A nice, smooth mouthfeel. Good beer!

12oz bottle in a snifter. Pour dark brown with small, beige head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts, light coconut, rum barrels, and light toffee. Flavor the same with a decent blend. Average to smoother texture. A cool beer but not as good as I was hoping for.

355 ml. bottle split by 3 @ “Memorabel Tastingkje”. Thanks to tderoeck! 2013 Vintage. Pours black with no head. Flakes of coconut underneath cap. Nose is crazily alcoholic as is the whole beer, we had a 16.45 % ABV Avery beer right before this one & it was nowhere near as boozy as this one. Pure booze in the nose, harsh with thick chocolate syrup underneath, very sweet rum, brown sugar, vanilla, very thick & syrup-like. Wowza this is boozy. Taste is very sweet, brown sugar, chocolate syrup, molasses, toffee, thick malts, prune, plum, date, vanilla, thick black chocolate, booze kick, thick rum, pure booze kick, wowza, thick syrupy creamy body, soft carb. Fun but sort of overkill as well. To bad that I didn’t get any coconut in here but it is probably too old for that now. Great stuff all the same, brutal.

Bottle thanks to Will. Pours a dark brown with paperthin beige head and small yeast floaties. The aroma is strong boozy chocolate and faint coconut. Strong chocolate and coconut, oak with nice roasty boozy finish. Very good.

HonkeyBra (3321) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - OCT 11, 2013
12 oz. bottle shared with my man Cary. Pours a cola brown color with small ring around the glass. Aroma of coconut, rum, chocolate candy bar, lots of cocoa and booze. Intoxicating aroma. Flavor is sweet, alcohol sweet, slight alcoholic burn, medium barrel notes. Slick, oily body, full mouthfeel, average carbonation. Finishes big and sweet. Interesting.

Bottle shared by drsilverworm. Pours a darker brown with no head, but there are some fatty looking globs floating on the top of the beer. The aroma is nutty, chocolate, and a lot of booze. Taste has a lot of booze to it with a warming alcohol. I get the coconut more as an afterthought lost finish.

Bottle shared with the Dallas crew. Hope y’all like it. Pour is murky brown with some small white floaters. Big caramel, roasty, toasted coconut, sweet vanilla, brown sugar, cocoa, and rum in the aroma. Taste is big coconut, sweet vanilla, rum, whiskey, roast, raisins, figs, brown sugar, and caramel. Slick mouthfeel with no carbonation. Super sweet dessert beer. Very smooth and sweet with a touch of heat on the backend. Tasty stuff, but maybe just a touch too sweet. Could definitely benefit from some age.

12oz bottle shared with friends. Lots of coconut, rum and booze in the aroma. Drinks very easily though it’s sort of hard to tell what style it should be called. Not dark enough for a stout, somewhere along the lines of an imperial brown or porter.
