This beer pours a dark redish brown cola color with a small almond colored head. Aroma is a nutty chocolate sweetness. As far as taste goes I get chocolate and a sweet coconut flavor that is very strong. There is also this wood presence. It’s very nice, but as a brown ale, this is definitely not typical. The coconut is very apparent. To me its not a bad thing, I really enjoyed it.

Poured as 4 ounce taster at For the Love of the Brew. Lots and lots of coconut on the nose and the palate. Not liking coconut, this doesn’t really appeal to me.

Bottle. Pours clear brown with minimal head. The aroma has a ton of coconut, light chocolate. The taste is a ton of coconut, vanilla, chocolate. Not bad.

Pours like a typical brown ale. Nose has a lot of coconut and chocolate. Reminds me of an almond joy. Taste is smooth with the same almond joy flavors. Really enjoyed this beer.

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
