4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours (body appears) used-motor oil black with a light tan head that dissipates quickly to a thin surface film-layer. Aroma is sweet fruit and nutty notes. Strong alcohol presence. No light can be seen through this one... Even when held up to a light. Now that is a dark beer!! Heavy-sweet and fruity taste that strongly resembles Russian imperial stouts. Full-bodied and robust with a thick texture. Relatively flat carbonation with a long, lingering finish. Acidic with coffee in the nose. I’m very impressed with this company.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is roasted with malt and espresso, followed by a sweetness of chocolate and a lingering hint of coconut. Flavor is a balance between espresso and chocolate, with hints of oats and coconut. Mouthfeel is creamy. Could have been more of coconut presence, but decent overall.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
From bomber bottles on two occasions. Should have been three but one bomber bottle stored in my cool cellar exploded after several weeks, leaving a widespread sticky mess. The second bottle gushed like crazy, making a mess even though I was cautious and, I thought, prepared. The taste seems to confirm that this is a contaminated batch.
Much better when fresh but still recommend AVOID!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. The coconut flavor was not overpowering but was also a bit offsetting. I know I should have anticipated that but I suppose I needed to taste it to understand.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep, warm sable with a very thick light tan head. Aroma has a strong, but not overpowering, tone of coconut, not too sweet, lets through some smoky malt. Coconut note is not quite so strong in the flavor, which has tones of roast malt, coffee, vanilla, and even a wee bit of hops. Texture is firm, smooth, and fairly fizzy. Batter this boar with coconut and get stout!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle sampled at Classic City Brew Fest 2014. Pours a thick black with thin ring of tan head. Aroma is big on the sweetness, lactose and an actual coconut note. Taste follows, like a coconut cream pie in beer form. Slightly creamy and viscous, but still kind of thin. A good dessert beer.
