3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, via Heather (😊), who brought me a bottle of this on our most recent rendezvous in Perrysburg. Nose is coffee, coconut, vanilla, caramel, candy. Mouth is medium bodied, bittersweet (more bitter than sweet though), lots of toasted nutty character, coffee, buttery caramel, cocoa, a bit thin but still sold. Shout out to the woman who brought it to me: I love you baby. And this is easily my new favorite name for a beer. Just sayin.

My very first brown beer, and the first beer I have rated higher than 3.9. This is my favorite beer to date! Pours like a mug of root beer, great color and tan head. Aroma is also very alluring, sweet with scents of chocolate, coconut and peanut butter. its like opening a bottled candy store! The taste is just as pleasant like dipping a mounds bar into peanut butter. love the combination of chocolate, peanut butter and coconut. Nice palate with a smooth but full flavor. finishes nicely.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle I had my son grab for me while my hands were ful in a Ohio beer store. Glad we found this. Pours dark black with a medium creamy tan head that dissipates slowly with nice lacing. Aroma is chocolate, coconut, cinnamon, peanut butter. Flavor is light sweet, light bitter, lots of coconut and roasty notes. Some peanut butter present as well. Lighter body than expected but still good.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deep amber color out of the bottle with a short khaki colored head. Nose of toasted coconut, vanilla and roasted grains. This is a great take on a potentially boring style. Caramel sweetness, dark toast, rich vanilla, milk chocolate and a great coconut addition. There is a hint of bitter coffee in the finish. I wish more people would play with coconut in beer.

Pour dark chesnut brown with a one finger tan head with nice lacing. Aroma is of toasted coconut, dark chocolate, sweet malts, caramel, vanilla, and light cofee. Taste is about the same as the aroma. Has a medium body with creamy mouthfeel and a mostly sweet, medium long finish. Overall,a pretty nice brown ale.

Bottle at Patomac Grill in Old Harper’s Ferry. I’m not usually a fan of any brown ale. I have found a few I like this is one. That horrible brown ale flavor was well masked with hints of coconut. I’m sure the caramel was in there but I think brown ale has some of that anyway. Decent ale. I liked this one. Always a fan of Du Claw but don’t get it much out in California.
