3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Picked up six-pack from Ridgeview Liquors in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Pours a semi-clear amber brown colored brew with a nice off-white head that slowly dissipates and leaves behind some spotty lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, a hint of toffee, floral hops and a touch of chocolate. Taste is medium bodied with more coconut and light chocolate/caramel flavors than detected in aroma. Coconut is not overpowering in flavor and finish. Finish is semi-sweet with a vanilla, coconut and chocolate aftertaste that slowly disappears. A pleasant surprise and could be a favorite specialty brown ale to compare all others to. Nicely done.

Dark brown with off white head. Thick texture. Aroma is good but not very strong. Taste quite a bit like a light scotish ale. Recommend trying if you like brown ales.

Can. Aroma is very nutty with some light coconut and cocoa. Tastes great. Big coconut and nuts, light cocoa, some dark bread, and light coffee. Smooth and easy to drink. Definitely one of the better brown ales I’ve had. Looking forward to more beers from these guys.

12 oz can thanks to willrunforbeer, deep brown color, good amount of head. Aroma is roasted nuts and mild coconut.
Flavor shows a substantial amount of coconut with hints of chocolate and toasted nuts. Medium body that maybe a tad on the full side. The bold coconut surprised me on this brew. Very nice implementation of the coconut. For the style this rocks!
