Intense aroma of macaroons. Chocolate covered toasted coconut for days. If youre going to use coconut go totally nuts like this. Not sure if this is extracts or the real deal but its realllllly coconutty. Dont be a bitch about the coconut.

Tap at brewery. Pours deep, dark brown with creamy off-white head. Aroma is roasted malts, fresh brewed coffee, light fig, light ash, and faint earthiness. Flavor is a smooth blend of roast malts, chocolate, and coffee balanced by subtle vanilla and dark fruit sweetness; dry finish with a hint of roast lingering. Medium body and carbonation.

Draft at the brewery. Pours black with a creamy beige head. Tastes like bitter coffee beans, rich espresso, creamy sweet chocolate. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like roasted coffee beans and chocolate syrup.

Draft at the Funky Buddha Brewery in Oakland Park, FL. Plastic cup (large MBCP release party...no snifters.) I’ve had this beer a million times but never rated it for some reason. So here we go. Pours a black, opaque almost oil with a mocha thin head. The nose is first the coconut and then the dark chocolate, cocoa nibs, vanilla, roasted malts and prunes. The taste is pretty much the same with the coconut not being as defined as in the aroma. But the chocolate and cocoa nibs come through nicely and the finish is chocolate and coconut. Heavy, full body with a creamy mouth feel. Soft finish. Very tasty as always.

On-tap at Hunahpu’s Day 2012. Original review 03-13-2012.
Pours darker brown, cream-colored head, thin ring on top. Amazing nose, to say the least. Coconut, coffee beans, chocolate, light roast, expresso, burnt sugars, and vanilla. You just want to hold this up to your nose and breath...yes, that good. Not quite as good as the nose, yet still excellent. Coconut, expresso, roasted coffee beans, vanilla. For 6.5%, it drinks very cream-like, which is really cool. The milk chocolate notes are quite as evident on the palate, yet still very good. Finish is toasted coconut and chocolate roast. Medium body, rich and smooth, light carbonation, creamy finish.
One of my favorites on-tap at Hunahpu’s Day. I was left thinking, "what the hell just happened there." Definitely a standout on any tap list, and truthfully, one of the top beers there.

Sample at GABF. Continue the hype train on the one. Damn. Black pour. Smell is chocolate, coffee and big coconut. Flavor is the same but with a bigger sweet coconut component and roast. Its is big coconut, but it is very, very well integrated. Love me some coconut beers and this is top notch.

best beer I’ve had with coconut, strong, sweet sticky, but not generic, perfectly balanced with a porter, must try
