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.

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.

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.

Sampled at The Argonaut during GABF week. Brown/black with a tan head. Huge, yet smooth coconut porter with dark chocolate and light rum. Sweet finish. Wow.

Bottle. Nose is silky and smooth with light vanilla. There are actually chunks in my glass. I hope that is coconut. Lush rich and chocolate. Really yummy. Very smooth initially. A slight boost as it warms. Nice.

HonkeyBra (4036) - 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 with the Dallas crew. Hope yíall 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.

12 oz bottle. Dark brown with brief suds. Nose is maple, wet wood, toasted coconut and chocolate with pervading rum soaked goodness. Silky with sexy heat but not sharp. Taste is dark chocolate, molasses, toasted coconut and rum. Massive sticky sweetness masks the big ABV.

hackobock (3564) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 16, 2014
Bottle, February 15, 2014. After some time in the cellar itís taken a more vinous port-like character, the coconut is barley noticeable and the rum notes are more subtle. This bottle had some of the coconut flakes in it as well. Itís past itís peak. 8-3-8-4-16=39. Bottle on release day. Pours brown with a small tan head. Aroma is is a very nice mix of rum and chocolate, vanilla, oak, dark fruits and light coconut. Taste follows with sweet rum, chocolate, vanilla dark fruits. Full bodied with low carbonation.
