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 as a bonus from minor threat. Just a warning for those who don’t always pay attention to bottles like me that this is a 17% beer so maybe don’t open it by yourself :) Black with a ruby hue, faint biege head that fades to nothing and some white floaters (coconut maybe?). Roasted coconut, bit of malibu rum without the overwhelming sweetness that I associate with that liquor - more of a rich dark rum, some alcohol but not a lot, dark vanilla, bit of PC cola too (including some of the sugar. Mild carbonation, moderate+ body, booze is present but to be honest fairly well hidden, smooth yet sticky, sweet without being cloying, more alcohol on the finish then anywhere else along with some sticky and sweet malt with a bit of molasses. An odd combination but it works and its quite interesting - be sure to drink it with one of those little umbrellas in your glass.

Notes from Churchkey Avery Cellar event. 2013 bottle->snifter. Deep brown with bare head. Sweet chocolate, coffee, coconut. Thick and syrupy. Great.

bottle thanks to Ratman197. pours a dark brown / light black with floating specs of coconut. some carbonation bubbles up upon pouring but quickly dissipates. sweet nose with layers of rum, chocolate, dark sugar, alcohol and light coconut. certain aspects of the aroma are hidden by the sugars and alcohol. very sweet throughout with really nice layers of chocolate, coconut, caramel and rum. tastes like a desert / candy bar. very warming on the finish as the alcohol is evident. soft carbonation with a very creamy body. excellent flavor profile from start to finish.

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.

Westmeister (2129) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 17, 2015
Shared with jrob21. thanks wchesser for sending this a while back. A must share beer. The booze is heavily present in a super sweet raisin soaked rum, big caramel sweetness. Just stays on this good side of being too much. In my 4 oz sample I rather enjoyed it.

Big aroma of rum and some coconut. Taste is similar but a bit close to cloyingly sweet, good with the small pour.

Jesterdeal (1985) - 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.

wchesser (1668) - 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.

MacBoost (1645) - 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.
