Draft at EBF weekend. Pours out almost black with a thin tan head. Aroma is of chocolate, sweet coconut, vanilla, medium roast coffee. Taste is very complex, lots going on. Chocolate, coconut, vanilla, light roast coffee, mild sugary notes and a slight bitterness. Yup, this lives up to the hype.

The beer is dark brown. It’s translucent fairly far in from the edges but quite dark. The head is medium sized and khaki in color. A bit fizzy. The aroma is huge and sweet and excellent. It’s intensely inviting with a big coconut, cocoa and chocolate mix. There’s a big maple syrup note with some caramel and toffee. It smells like a wonderful fudgey dessert of some sort. Taste doesn’t quite live up to that. There’s some cola flavor and acidity. The chocolate and caramel flavors try to hold it all up but there’s not quite enough push for it. Mouthfeel is medium and fairly creamy. Lighter than you might expect with that much sweetness in the nose. It does wear out its welcome somewhat over the course of a bottle, but it’s a very tasty beer and I can understand the love for it.

Thank you Mathieu87 & PriorL! 650 ml. bottle sampled @ “Mathieu’s house cooling party”. Dark brown black with little mocha. Smell, I have had coconut beers before that promised to smell like liquid Bounty, this might be the first one to nail that 100 %. This just smells like massive in your face liquid Bounty, chocolate, coffee, cacao, vanilla,… Ridiculous. Taste is massive Bounty & even more sweet coconut, sugar, cold coffee, chocolate syrup, brownie, chocolate,… Ridiculous coconut, adjunct heavy to the max. Glorious. Lacks some body for a bit to fully complete it but I absolutely adore it as it is now. Glorious.

22oz bottle pours a black color with a bit of head. Strong coconut aroma. Toasted coconut flavor. The hops at the end clash a little with the coconut.

Bottle from Randall. Dark brown with a creamy tan head that mostly fades. Sweetened shaved coconuts, milk chocolate, some coffee, moderate body and carbonation, very sweet, smooth, would say best to share with others but in small doses tasty.

Bottle thanks to Sean. Pours a dark mahogany color with a small white head. A big nose of coconut and chocolates. Very sweet, sort of artificial coconut candy, very mellow. Big roasted coffee. Serious sweetness here! I think this amount of coconut needs a bigger base, 10%+. But is very good. Merry Christmas.
