COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A dominant blend of roasted malt, coconut, caramel, and chocolate essences, barely restrained by a gentle hop bite, that tantalizes your senses all the way through to a satisfying finish. Submit to the indulgence, but be warned…there is no safe word!

This may be my new favorite beer. The aroma is full of chocolate and coconut. Pours a beautiful dark brown with a slight head. Flavor bursts with chocolate and coconut with a slight hop finish. This beer was great!

You either like novelty beers or you don’t. I happen to enjoy them, especially in the porter/brown ale medium. With that disclaimer out of the way, I think this is a fantastic dessert beer if you are a fan of coconut. It’s basically a liquid version of an Almond Joy candy bar. Big aroma of fresh, sticky coconut, milk chocolate, oak and vanilla bean. Flavor is full bodied and smooth, with overwhelming coconut and nutty qualities. One bottle is all you could/would handle, but a pleasant surprise.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured dark brown, medium beige head. Aroma of caramel, malts and lots of coconut. Taste is also a lot of coconut, some vanilla, very sweet. Interesting beer, definitely worth trying.

The vanilla gives it a nice whiskey like aroma but it's not enough to erase the coconut. Dark brown with a thin head. The flavor has too much coconut. I don't like my beer tasting like a mounds bar. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a deep dark brown, almost black. A thin foamy head. Aroma of coconut. Taste is crisp with a coconut presents. Has a hoppy bite. Interesting brew. If your a fan of coconuts, this is for you.

Pours a medium chestnut brown with a quarter inch light tan head that dissipates quickly. No lacing. Aroma of thick chocolate fudge, toasted amber malt, marshmallow, coconut, salted caramel, and even a faint whiff of peanut butter. Smells very delicious. Taste notes of grain first, then slowly some hints of chocolate and caramel. Not sure why but I also get a taste of peanut butter. Maybe the mixture of chocolate and coconut just reminds me of peanut butter. Palate is on the more quaffable side if medium. I wouldn’t drink these in a session, but it’s not much heavier than a pale ale. Perhaps a touch over carbonated. I really enjoy the flavor and aromatic profiles of this beer, but it started to get cloying like chocolate soda towards the end. Perhaps the carbonation also plays into that. Good beer, but not as deliciously drinkable like Tumbler.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a dark copper-brown color with a tiny bit of off white foam. The head fades almost instantly leaving only a trace of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The nose of the beer is huge of a caramel and toffee smell mixed with some nice roasted malt and chocolate aromas. A little bit of a smoke smell and a moderate toasted coconut smell are there as well, giving the brew a very Samoa cookie like smell. This is very sweet and delicious smelling. Taste – The taste begins with a roasted malt taste along with a good deal of caramel and toffee sweetness. Some lighter notes of coffee are present upfront, with these growing slightly stronger as the taste moves on further toward the end. Along with the coffee increasing, the toffee fades from the tongue while the caramel gets a tad stronger. A toasted coconut and light nutty flavor comes to the tongue more toward the end as well. With a little bit of a herbal and earthy flavor joining the taste, along with the slight increase in the coffee, a moderately sweet roasted and toasted coconut flavor with a decent bitter bit from the hop and coffee is left to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the on the thinner and more watery side with a carbonation level that is rather average. For the sweeter and more roasted flavors of the brew a thicker body would have been more appropriate and would have accentuated those flavors a bit more, which would have been nice. Overall – A decent brown ale overall, but the feel and bitterness at the end of the taste actually took away from what I was expecting in this one. Just alight.

Bottle. Bottled: 02/28/14. A light cola brown pour with a skim of a khaki head. The sweet aroma is very reminiscent of Girl Scout Samoas - lots of toasted coconut, caramel, and chocolate along with a touch of roasted coffee way off in the background. Relatively medium-bodied on the way down. The taste is awfully similar to a Samoa cookie as well. Lots of caramel, toasted coconut, and plenty of chocolate start things off taste-wise. Just enough bittering dark chocolate and the slightest hint of hoppiness at the tail-end to keep things from being completely cloying.

Pours lightly hazy nut brown with a 1-finger light tan head. Aroma is mostly of coconut, with some caramel and roasted malt underneath. Body is medium and mildly oily, with a dry finish. Flavor of roasted malt up front, with a strong note of toasted coconut behind it. Some bitter chocolate and a charred note underneath, with the caramel appearing some in the finish.
