On tap at Funky Buddha. Pours dark brown with tan head. Aromas of vanilla, coconut, coffee, some roast, and light chocolate. Flavors of sweet vanilla, coffee, coconut, some roast and chocolate, with some bitterness in the finish. Body is a tad thin, but this is a coffee beer so that is ok. Nice beer.

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

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.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

Swing-top growler shared with timfoolery. Straight up mounds bar in beer form! Great beer.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.
