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.

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.

Jesterdeal (1887) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - JUL 18, 2013
Aroma of dog food. Slight oak and cocoanut and chocolaye like a box of Samoas. Pours black with good carb but no head. Taste is coconut rum, oak, spiced rum, and brown sugar. Super sweet and very boozy. Treat this like a cordial.

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.

peteinSD (1377) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 28, 2013
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 thereís 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.

rxeight (1334) - Illinois, USA - JUL 8, 2013
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.

MacBoost (1288) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - SEP 14, 2013
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.

brystmar (1261) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 9, 2013
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.

wchesser (1172) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 3, 2013
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.
