3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at the "Drink Moar Beer!" tasting on 06/12/2015: The beer pours a dark brown color with a thin tan head that diminishes gradually. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast malt, coconut and chocolate. Light-bodied with flavors of toasted coconut, chocolate malt and mild hops. The finish is roasted nuts and coconut. Pretty good all around.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark brown with a tan head. The taste of toasted malt and brown sugar shows after a few seconds. With a hint of vanilla? A long finish that ends with burnt sugar.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. A lightly hazy, brown beer with a small, beige head. There’s way too much coconut on the nose, with caramel, and some notes of cellar and stale hops. It’s full-bodied, nicely carbonated and sort of sweetish on the palate. There’s a good dash of paint in the flavor, with loads of coconut. Some toffee and dark wort too. Lasting finish. Rather horrific this one, way too coconut-ish, way too artificial, way too everything. 150622

Pours hazy brown with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, coconut, cocoa and chocolate. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter with a long coconut, chocolate and cocoa finish. Body is medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.

Coconut really comes through in the aroma and in the taste; not sure if that is good or bad. This is kind of like Malibua crossed with a brown Ale. Not bad, but probably not one that I am going to come back for.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle to shaker glass, pours deep reddish brown, small quick head. No real lacing or retention. Aroma of coconut and faint chocolate. Taste is mainly sweet with just enough bitterness to keep it balanced. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, sticky mouth feel. Finishes short and sweet. Tasting notes of coconut, almonds, chocolate.......a Mounds Bar. Not bad but couldn’t drink more than one in a sitting.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle into snifter glass, hazy amber-brown color with tan head. Aroma notes of caramel malt sweetness, coconut, chocolate, some nuttiness and light roast. Like a beer samoa cookie. Taste adds some vanilla, faint spices, bakers chocolate with decent hop bitterness. Light-medium body, low-moderate carbonation, dry with lingering coconut sweet and earthy bitter finish. Not normally a fan of coconut things but this doesn’t work too bad, like a lighter coconut cookie beer. Tasty.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Drank from a twelve ounce bottle purchased from a general store near Lake Wallenpapack. Smells roasty and sweet. Tastes slightly of roasted malts but overpoweringly disgusting of coconut. I hate coconut but recently had a really good coconut beer, this wasn’t even in the ballpark of the other.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
I like this beer a lot more than I thought I would. It pours caramel brown, the head leaves a persistent, creamy lace. The aroma is nutmeg and cinnamon over top of that coconut and chocolate mentioned on the label. The coconut comes through in the flavor, strong, sweet, and toasted. There is something like oak in the background, too.
