Wonderful chocolate, coffee and coconut aroma and taste. I’d love a bit more coconut but this is so tasty it’s hard to complain.

Theydon_Bois (12568) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2015
Bottle split at Mother Arch, picked up from a supermarket in HI, 03/01/15. Light black with a decent tan covering that retains well. Nose is dark malt, lactic tang, nice toasted coconut strokes, cocoa rub, toffee, nutty. Taste comprises more lactic soured fuit notes, Bounty Bar, dark fruit rinds, toffee, chocolate, light charr. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. The other two beers I picked up from this brewer were pleasant surprises in terms of quality, this one was just OK, a touch too much lactic/fruit tarteness - perhaps a mild infection?

beernbourbon (1379) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - FEB 28, 2015
Bottle. Pour is dark brown with a medium tan head. Aroma and flavor contain notable roasted malt with a distinct coffee kick and a light toasted coconut note. Could just be the malt but I have convinced myself that I taste coconut. Really clean and full yet drinkable. Aromatic and tasty. Solid beer.
