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.

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

Looks a bit weak in the glass, no head/lacing and has a hazy brownish-black color. Smells amazing, sweet coconut, dark rum and chocolate. Taste is more of the same. Sweet coconut, chocolate with vanilla, bakers chocolate and no booze. Lingering hints of rum tie the whole thing together. I heard it called a liquid mounds bar and I have to agree. Christ its good The appearance was a glaring weakness, beyond that it’s incredibly good. It’s very, very sweet but is so well done it doesn’t come across as cloying.

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.

Bottle. Pours black with some white head. Aroma is coconut and some rum, sweet like candy.. coconut really dominates this but its good and boozy. holy shit, 17%? never would have guessed that
