Brown pour, almost like a brown ale. Very thin and watery mouthfeel. Aroma is on point for what the beer is supposed to be: coffee, vanilla and coconut shavings. Tasts like an almond joy bar. The lack of viscosity is a disservice and it doesn’t coat the tongue and the flavors run away to quicky. It is a nice gimmicky beer as is normal with FB but definitely over-hyped to the max.

GABF 2014. Pours a dark brown / black appearance with a lasting brown head. This thing is just overloaded with coconut and vanilla. Dark chocolate, some nuts, and caramel but really just the most massively coconut forward beer I’ve ever had. Really fun to drink.

GABF 2014 Rating (Denver, CO). Pours a nice darker rich blackish brown hue, good darker body with brownish glow on the edges. Loose brownish head atop stays as a small ringer. Aromas are potent coconut, vanilla and gentle roast. Touches of cocoa, coffee and toasty malts. Rich and potent, more coconut and a faint dash of wood. Initial is roasty, toast with touches of firm coconut, faint oak and toffee. Mounds, touches of toast, earth and coffee. Middle is a bit warm, spicy with some caramel, oak and toffeee. A bit spicy, firmer coffee and roastiness. Smaller body than I expected, a bit of coolness, chocolate chip cookies, toast and coconut. Nice stuff.
