4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
On tap @ GABF. Black pour with a tan head. Really crazy coconut aroma. Smells like a mounds candy bar. Sweet chocolate, light roast, and a hint of coffee. Mostly coconut, though. Flavor is chewy, fresh coconut. Some vanilla, chocolate, and even more sweet coconut. Mounds candy bar all the way. Just a touch of roasted malt and coffee.

Draft at GABF. Pour is deep brown - almost black - with a small brown head and great lacing. Huge coconut, bourbon, caramelly, brown sugar, maple, roasty and cocoa aroma. Taste is big coconut and dark chocolate, nutty, woody, coffee beans, earthy, and toffee with a smooth toasty finish. Slick mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Really nice stuff and sort-of reminds me of a mounds chocolate bar.

Tap at GABF. Holy crap aroma. Smells like an Almond Joy candy bar with all of the great tastes that go along with it. Smooth and like silk. Coconut and chocolate. Balanced and delicious.

From a growler - nice dark brown in color with a thick tan head, large bubbles, disapates pretty quickly. Huge coconut nose with undertones of maple, caramel and vanilla. Awesome taste to match the nose. Finishes with some heat.

From bottle, courtesy of Beerman6686, at Dog Days Tasting. Smells like Almond Joy with a hint of coffee. Dark black opaque with foamy-creamy lacing tan head. Medium-heavy body with medium-light carbonation. Starts moderately sweet with caramel, coconut, almond, coffee, and chocolate. Tastes like a coffee-Almond Joy mix. Finish is a little dry and watery with a lot of carbonic tartness in the after.

Poured from growler... Poured dep, dark brown with a thin head. Aroma was intense. Containing Irish Cream liqueur, mocha, dark chocolate and coffee. Tasted like a sweet coffee cocktail. Roast was minimal which allowed all the chocolate and coffee notes to shine. Surprisingly thick mouthfeel and depth for the mere abv on this one. Coconut was there but not in your face and reminded me of Mounds candy bars.

Finally opened this one up. Poured a darker brown color with a beige head. Aroma was one of the most in your face impressive aromas I’ve ever smelled. Loads of coconut, white chocolate, and some maple there too. Flavor was predominantly coconut and lots off coffee with maple in the finish. Not as in your face as the aroma, but in a good way as its not too sweet and is melded very well. Get ya some!

Swing-top growler from Tony. Aroma and flavor of a Mounds bar (i.e. dark chocolate covered coconut) and Kona blend coffee. The carbonation was medium+ and very well integrated for a satisfying and drinkable mouthfeel. Walking into this one with a "how great could it be" attitude and walking out extremely happy to have tried this... Funky Buddha, make this into an imperial stout (more body), and I may just have to move to Florida. Excellent beer!

UPDATED: SEP 11, 2013 Growler with a big thanks to beerman6686. Huge aroma of almond joy, coconut, chocolate, some coffee and maple. Cola colored pour. Not a very thick palate. Needs body.
