Bottle @ DLD. Sweet boozy bourbon, coconut, and vanilla aroma. Viscous Black with a small tan head. Roasty coffee, creamy chocolate, and coconut flavor. Smooth creamy full body, moderate carbonation. The guys who shared it with me said the coconut had faded some since it’s release, but I thought the coconut still came through nicely.

Why do people think this acetone-smelling sugar bomb is good? smells of nailpolish remover, astringent oak, and overbearing raw alcohol. tastes of chocolate milkshakes with bourbon and coconut. big surprise...boring fucking beer.

Cask at DotLA. Pours black, thin dark brown head, opaque. Nose is moderately sweet with a distinct ethanol component. Vanilla and toast, coconut comes through a bit late. Rich with some molasses notes and Mounds bar. On tasting, big bodied with a moderate sweetness. Toasted coconut is really nice and surprised that this hasn’t happened before. A touch hot overall but really neat. I like it.

Cask pour at Day/Night of the Living Ales 2013 at Goose Island - Wrigleyville (Chicago, IL). Pours an inky black pour, fairly thick with big black legs, some body, inky opaque pour is dark and ominous. Aromas are cocoa, rye whiskey, gentle spice. Bigger toasty coconut, vanilla, some fudge. Coconut milk, vanilla, German Chocolate Cake. Touches of spirit, spice. Vanilla. Initial is firmer body, vanilla and cocoa. Bigger coconut, German Chocolate Cake, toasty coconut and spice. Gentle whiskey, spice. Medium to heavier body, with bigger coconut, toffee, some sticky evidence. Toasty coconut, warming spirit from the rye whiskey. Spice, vanilla, whiskey and heat. Nice. Firmer flavors, the vanilla, roasty, and dryness, warmer spirit into the finish. Fun beer. No real head or lacing.

Cask, pours black small tan head. Aroma big fresh toasted coconut. Fudgy chocolate. Flavors slick roasted coffee and big coconut notes, mild spicy finish between the rye and booze. I’d love to see this bottled.
