Black pour, shredded coconut flakes. Nose is huge coconut, whiskey, dark chocolate. Taste is sweet coconut and dark chocolate with smooth whiskey. Somewhat boozy. Thick creamy mouthfeel.

This beer kicks ass!! The coconut flavor is well balanced and this beer drinks like a champion. Too bad they didn't make more. I would hoard the shit out of this one.

So black.... Beautifull complexity on the nose. Coconut, vanilla, chocolate and roasted malts, coffee itís all there in great balance. The palate is perfect in my opinion. Creamy, a little fizz and not flat at all. The taste shows good oak influence right away. So many dark fruits and malts.. No need to mention each little note. Itís really really rich.. I canít emagine how you get this much taste into a beer.. Itís almost cloying.. But it still kicks butt. Iím a fan. #fanboy

Porbably the best beer I had in the last two years. Bottle from SJ. First off the blend of coconut, roasted malt, cocolate,, bread and vanilla were a great idea. There is a nice finish of wood, caramel and amazigness. The body was full and hardy.

On tap at Stout in Chicago not too long after the release. Really nice toasted coconut character in the nose, and carrying through to the flavor. Delicious bourbon and vanilla with a touch of oak. Warming alcohol without being hot. Another massive BCBS winner.

Black pour with hardly any head. Thick and viscous. Toasted coconut on the nose and some whiskey. Has a German chocolate cake quality to it. Massively thick mouth. Taste is chocolate, some toasted coconut, vanilla and whiskey. A marriage of flavors that really belong together. Wow is this good.

Bottle. Pour is as expected except for a small fleck of coconut floating at the top. Aroma is incredible with waves of roasted malt, bourbon, vanilla, and toffee. Not too much coconut. Flavor is rich and smooth with similar profile to nose except that an occasional blast of coconut comes through. Not even on every sip, but when itís there it is outstanding. Awesome beer with flashes of perfection.
