Underdogs88 (324) - New Jersey, USA - APR 10, 2014
Strong coconut aroma with hints of chocolate and caramel. Brown appearance with a tan head with below avg head retention. Flavor is big on coconut flavor. Coffee, chocolate and caramel notes are in the background. No hop flavor present. Balance is slightly towards the malt. Mouthfeel is medium with medium carbonation. No astringency is apparent from the roast grains. Overall it tastes like a malt flavored piña colada. A little too strong on the coconut. Not my cup of tea. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle in a teku. Pours brown with a beige head. Aroma of dark malts, some coconut and vanilla, sweet malts, and some dough. Flavor the same, with the adjuncts very strong. A pretty interesting beer but I wouldnít really ever want to drink more of these.

DuffMan (9283) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 26, 2016
Bottle. Deep mahogany hue, aroma of strong vanilla with nutty undertones. Very sweet palate, loads of vanilla, hazelnuts, brown sugar. Just too much sweetness for me.

a nice and enjoyable brew. Pours a murky amber with a finger of beige head, light lacing rings. The nose is a touch dessert esque and has aromas of coconut, vanilla, cocoa powder and caramelized malts. A touch sweet but the light hop bitterness balances it out. Nice vanilla and chocolate notes. Very well balanced for so much going on.

12of bottle. Pours dark dark purple. Thin head of cream. Aroma is very different, including cream and milk chocolate. Flavors come together nicely. Delicious. Smooth. Super easy to drink.

johnnnniee (3660) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 18, 2016
Sample at the BJCP reception last week at HomeBrewCon. Deep brown with a decent tan head. Huge chocolatey coconut on the nose and flavor. My notes say Girls scout cookie samoas.

341ml bottle, bought at Central City Liquor Store, tasted on Green Point Campground. Pours very dark amber with a tan head. Aroma and taste are toffee, caramel, coffee, vanilla. Vanilla, coffee aftertaste and hoppy bitterness aftertaste. Interesting.

cwill (60) - Coatesville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 4, 2016
Dark brown pour topped off with a khaki head. Some reddish tint showing at the edges. Coconut chiefly on the nose but also some supporting roasted grains and chocolate. Taste has a basic chocolatiness and earthy nuttiness with a moderate coconut flavor. Slight little metallic finish with a bit of artificial tasting flavoring. Mouthfeel is thin with medium carbonation. Different, and not really my taste

Reviewed March 23, 2014. A: Pours a dark chestnut color. The head isnít very impressive: itís not even a finger high (off-white shade), and it doesnít even retain that well. A small ring of lacing is left on the glass. Still, it doesnít seem to have the blatant carbonation issues Cocoa Fuego did. Good...I guess? S: Holy. Friggen. Dessert. This captures the essence of German chocolate cake beautifully - Iím guessing thatís what DuClaw was inspired by, after all. Itís very coconut forward, with a ton of milk chocolate and caramel hanging just behind it. A faint wisp of roasted malt also exists in the background. Iím wary of how it will taste compared to the aroma (see: Creme Brulee for such a strong aroma/flavor disparity), though. But right now, right before I take a sip, the aroma is commendable. T: Aye, I was right - the taste isnít anywhere near as impressive. I get some of the undesirable chemical qualities I got from Sweet Baby Jesus, especially on the forefront. After the middle, though, it develops a nice toasted coconut flavor that helps redeems it somewhat. It finishes with a light, chocolaty roast that cleans some of the more artificial flavors. M: There is a lingering sweetness, but in general, itís a dry beer. Thatís a good thing. Itís well carbonated and light on the palate. Some of the chemical notes that stay on the tongue prevent me from giving the mouthfeel a higher score. O: Sweet Baby Jesus fans will love this and should buy/trade for this immediately. To me, itís a bit too chemical-tasting to be a great beer...but dat aroma! Oh, dat aroma. All in all, it isnít bad at all - certainly not a stinker like Old Flame or Serum was.

12oz brown bottle. Medium brown colour, a bit unclear, small beige cap with light lacing. Nose has chocolate sauce, caramel and coconut. Taste has chocolate, cocoa and coconut, late bitterness. Medium bodied, bit of a carbonation bite. Ok, a bit too candy-like and artificial chocolate notes.

ChainGangGuy (4755) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - APR 23, 2016
12 ounce bottle - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Greenville, South Carolina.

Appearance: Pours a very dark brown body topped off with a light beige-colored head. Some ruby showing at the edges.

Smell: Coconut chiefly on the nose but also some supporting roasted grains and low-grade chocolate.

Taste: Roasty with a middling sense of basic chocolatiness and underpinning of earthy nuttiness. Moderate coconut flavor. Restrained sweetness present. Minimal hop character. Slight little metallic twang nearing the finish with a bit of lingering darkened grain.

Mouthfeel: Falls just shy of medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Iíve dug my fair share of coconut beers. This, however, wasnít one of them as it just fell a bit short for me with the flavors not really harmonizing.
