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.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2014 Poured from bottle to snifter. Dark hue with tan head. Aroma is chocolate, coconut, vanilla, sweet rum, caramel. Mouthfeel is great with full body and good carbonation. Taste is sweet throughout with a slight tannic following and ethanol finish. Overall this is an absolutely fantastic brew.

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.

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.

355 ml. bottle split by 3 @ “Memorabel Tastingkje”. Thanks to tderoeck! 2013 Vintage. Pours black with no head. Flakes of coconut underneath cap. Nose is crazily alcoholic as is the whole beer, we had a 16.45 % ABV Avery beer right before this one & it was nowhere near as boozy as this one. Pure booze in the nose, harsh with thick chocolate syrup underneath, very sweet rum, brown sugar, vanilla, very thick & syrup-like. Wowza this is boozy. Taste is very sweet, brown sugar, chocolate syrup, molasses, toffee, thick malts, prune, plum, date, vanilla, thick black chocolate, booze kick, thick rum, pure booze kick, wowza, thick syrupy creamy body, soft carb. Fun but sort of overkill as well. To bad that I didn’t get any coconut in here but it is probably too old for that now. Great stuff all the same, brutal.

Pours a brown color with an off white head. Big aromas of coconut and oak. Flavors of coconut with a well balanced oak, vanilla and bourbon flavor.

12oz bottle. Pitch black pour with little head and tiny white floaters. Knowing this is just coconut and coconut oils and it was intentional helps but it's still weird. Nose is a boozy chocolate coconut bomb. Taste is like a rum soaked Almond Joy. One dimensional? Yes, but what a dimension. Awesome taste but super sweet. Nice thick oily mouthfeel. I likey. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

9/VIII/14 - 12Fl. Oz. bottle from a trade @ home - BB: n/a, bottled: VI/4/13, 283 cases (2014-902) Thanks to hackobock for the trade!

Clear red purple beer, small beige irregular head, unstable, dissipates quickly, non adhesive, chunks of what I suspect is coconut in the bottle. Aroma: lots of dark chocolate, caramel, gianduja,. MF: ok carbon, full body, bit sticky. Taste: sweet, very sugary, lots of coconut, sweet, bit artificial, lots of caramel, some raisins, ripe banana, little sourish, alcohol. Aftertaste: lots of caramel, vanilla, bourbon notes, sugary, hint of citrus, mocha, sweet malty base keeps coming through. Very decent stuff!

Poured from 12 oz bottle. Shared this one with 48FaninCali. Pours very dark brown, nearly black with tan head. There are some white floaties in there from the coconut. You can’t taste them or notice them when you drink it. Aroma is huge coconut, vanilla, chocolate and booze. Taste is the same...it is very hot still with lots of booze. Tastes like a Mounds bar with alcohol. Tasty stuff. Super sweet. Glad I shared the 12 oz bottle, as a full 12 oz would have knocked me on my ass and sent me into a diabetic coma.
