OK, as a brown ale, this doesn’t really strike me as awesome. as a beer with coconut, caramel, vanilla, and downright desert-inspired tastiness -- it wins. a lot. the coconut is very apparent, and outside of the occasional coconut stout, this totally has the lingering aftertaste you would see in serious beers. the lower abv is not indicative of a lack of substance here. this is like a wine cooler for beer fans -- tastes good and gets the job done. nice.

Chocolate and coconut aroma, dark brown color, sweet malty base that is overcome by the hops midway, leaves a hop aftertaste.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle from jsquire poured into a glass. Translucent dark brown with small beige head. Aroma is chocolate, medium body, low carbonation, and some small-bubble lacing. Taste is artificial chocolate, coconut, some earthy hops, some nuts, and some caramel. Not my thing.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thin head of offwhite bubbles. Does not last long. Very plesant aroma with rum raisin icecream, caramel, butter toffee and some dark fruit. Color is a dark brown with a hint of red. Malty flavor with lots of vanilla bean, caramel, toasted grains and tea. Has a bit of a sharp a bitter bite late that leaves the mouth rather dry and astringent. Mild coffee lingers. A more flavorful brown ale than i have typically had in the past. Pretty good!

Growler. Deep brown with moderate khaki head. Aroma of chocolate. Flavor is heavily chocolate with hints of roasted coconut. Sweet, very slight hop in the finish. I didn’t expect to like this much at all, but I really liked it.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: Brown bodied beer with a thin off-white fuzzy head that fades out to a ring and rafts of bubbles.
Aroma: I get a chocolate aroma right off the bat. It’s a strong tootsie roll smell. Then there is this wood-like aroma. It smells pretty great!
Taste: I get chocolate and this sweet coconut flavor that is very strong. Again there is this wood presence. It’s very nice.
Mouthfeel: The body of the beer is too thin. It just doesn’t stand up to the big flavors.
Overall: I really like this beer. It’s a thin bodied beer...a bit watered down...but it has a great flavor and aroma. I would recommend it especially if you’re a fan of coconut, and the chocolate adds a nice finishing touch.

Draft at Vintner. With a name like that, I had to try it. Coconut and chocolate, but the beer was thinner than I like and the flavors weren’t very rounded. Not sure if this is much of a beer without the flavoring. Pass.

Pours a cloudy amber red color with next to no lacing. Smells like chocolate and coconut straight away. Upon drinking this, you’d think that it was a porter. Has a nutty aftertaste and lingering hints of cocoa and coconut.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Another 12 oz. purchased at The Beer Shoppe, Ardmore, PA during my Trip. Color is brown lasting head retention. Grabbed this on a whim the coco is bolder then I would have ever imagined. Reminders me of a "Bounty" chocolate bar.
Flavor is right with the nose and is like drinking a liquid Bounty or Mounds chocolate bar. Mouthfeel has a nice creamy aspect with lingering coconut in the finish. This takes me back to the mid nineteen nineties when Mars released the "Bounty" coconut candy that you could get at the grocery store for 2 for $1.00. Nice stroll down me,sort lane on this one.

Thanks Air Force Hops - Bottled August 15th, 2014. a pretty hazy dark brown 1 finger white head fades fast to a thin line. Nose is sweet, a caramel malty nose with a faint bitter orange peel, melon, honey and oak. Nice creamy mouthfeel. the middle and finish is an oily coconut taste. I get a nutty taste, walnut, maybe some honeydew melon or pistachio. It’s not too sweet. good malt backbone. Really drinkable and a lot of flavor for a 6% beer.
