3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2013 Nice way to start a Saturday...with a smooth, creamy, and unique brew. Aroma of milk chocolate and coconut. Taste is milk chocolate that changes into dark chocolate with a perfect mix of coconut. Only negative is that itís a little thin.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured on draft. Dark brown, near black with a greyish head of foam. Not really a dense stout, by any means. Aroma is mostly chocolate with a hint at the coconuts presence. I wish the coconut was a little more prevalent, but what can you do? Taste is primarily sweet and chocolatey. Finish has more of the coconut profile than did the rest of the beer. Overall nice.

3.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: Faint milk chocolate, but I almost had to snort the beer getting it.
Appearance: Black with thick, tan head.
Taste: Sweet all the way through with hints of bitter finish.
Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, sweet finish.
Overall: Too sweet for me, but it still caught my attention. Itís well done and not over the top.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Review based from multiple samples at the 2012 Cincinnati Brew-haha. The description said that this was the Firkin version, with extra coconut just for this batch. Itís still subtle, but once you look for it itís very easy to notice, and makes for a very tasty aroma that is very unusual and works great in the sweet stout style. Of all the beers I sampled at this event, this one was definitely the most memorable. Dark brown near-black color, light brown/tan head. Great lace. Really nice coffee and honey nose, amazing aroma. Great, light carbonation, smooth texture, easy to drink. Light body. Great aftertaste, nice sweetness... Just great, overall
