Sampler at Giant Eagle in Pittsburgh, PA A bit on the weak side and could have been heavier bodied, a common problem with Church Brew Works.

On tap. Pours a dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of chocolate malt, lactose, roasted malt, sweet malt. Flavor of coconut initially followed by chocolate malt, lactose, light roast, and more toasted coconut. Palate is slightly thin but overall very tasty and plenty of coconut!

draft, poured a black color with a small tan head. The aroma was malty. The flavor was bitter, watery and thin feel with strong coconut that just overtook the flavor, with a hint of malty chocolate undertone. The finish was long, and dry with lingering coconut. Ok.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz draft at the church. Pours black with a thin beige head. Aroma of chocolaty malts, slight toasted coconut and coffee. The coconut flavor is fairly muted, light toast flavor, chocolate comes through. Pretty bitter and not overly sweet, which is what I was anticipating from a coconut stout.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A tasty stout, but I had a hard time finding the coconut flavors in the profile. Dark, sweet, subtly roasty, and delicious (just not coconuty).

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2013 Pours dark with a think froathy cream colored head. This stout smells like most stouts with a coffee/ chocolate aroma. At first I couldnít taste any coconut but as I drank more a slight hint came through as the beer warmed slightly.
2013: they increased the coconut by 25% and boy does it make a difference. So good. One of my favorites.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep brown/black pour. The nose is quite chocolatey with a little bit of light roastiness. Not a whole lot of coconut on the nose but the flavour shows loads of it in the mouth. Light and a bit earthy/roasty on the finish. Soft and sweet... itís got a touch of soapiness on the finish that I could do without though. Itís okay but...

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
tap @ Church - hazy dark pour, nice lacing. I love being reminded why sweet stout is my favorite style. Arouma is roasty, cocoa, sweet coconut milk, vanilla. Creamy body, perfect balance. I could drink this all day.
