3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Scott - thanks! Murky dark molasses brown pour with a thin scattering of tan foam. Aroma is overwhelmingly sweet with brown sugar, molasses, dense and sweet malt, some lingering alcohol vapors, and some rum. If there’s coconut, I cannot find it. Taste is as expected with dense, sugary sweet malt and raisin with sugared molasses and booze. Coating mouthfeel. Over the top sweet.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, February 15, 2014. After some time in the cellar it’s 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. It’s past it’s peak.
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.

Black pour, slight tan head. Little pieces of white coconut floaters. Aroma is coconut and cane sugar. Lots of coconut, like sun tan oil. A bit of underlying rum. Taste is coconut, chocolate, and rum. Like others have said it is the a alcoholic mounds bar. Very sweet. Im talking dark lord levels of sweetness. Good stuff, but very strong. Slowly sip this one with a friend.

Poured like black sewage water. Aromas of baby shit. Taste was nothing but cloyingly sweet dumpster juice. Finished hot and sweet with a burn. Not good, my brothers. Not good.

Toasty coconut aroma. Wow, quite balanced nose. Damn. Super sweet profile: roast fades fast, sugar-covered crackers, spicy at the end a la Rumpkin. Caramelized malt. Imbalanced profile, yet it's in a direction I enjoy. Should age well.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours deep brown with almost magenta tinge. Slick on top, maybe some very small floaters. Nose of booze, rum, vanilla. Taste is hot booze, very sweet, finish of milk chocolate, rum, and a hint of toasted coconut. Really does taste like taking a bite of Mounds and doing a shot of rum. Split the bottle two ways for dessert, but 4 would have been better. Too sweet and hot for me.

12oz bottle, thanks Aaron! Pours a deep, dark brown color with a tan head and some coconut floaties. Aroma is boozy, nutty, chocolate. Heavy, syrupy on the palate with light carbonation. Flavor is sweet, very sweet, vanilla, rum, chocolate, some light coconut, not much, but a little, with a sweet, boozy finish. Very tasty.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with rapidly settling tan head, no lacing. Aroma is rum, alcohol, and extremely sweet, hint of coconut. Flavor is very sweet, mild caramel, vanilla, with minimal rum and coconut flavor. Possibly the sweetest beer I have ever tasted. Fruity, dark, juicy finish and aftertaste. Rum character develops as it warms. Soft carbonation, full body, and smooth, sticky texture. A very intensely sweet beer, couldn’t drink much of this.
