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.

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.

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.

peteinSD (1430) - 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 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.

wchesser (1396) - 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.

Danyel (1332) - Colorado, USA - JUN 16, 2014
Bottle. Pours black with tan head. Aroma is strong coconut, sweet, molasses, rich, chocolate- tons going on. Taste is silky smooth, lots of coconut, very sweet, dessert-like. This is exceptional.

brystmar (1310) - 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.
