On tap at icicle pub Leavenworth. Pours out dark brown almost black with some ruby highlights topped with a tan head. Nose is almond joy or in this case I guess German chocolate cake. Tons of coconut milk chocolate vanilla and a nice sweetness. Taste is like the nose tons of coconut milk chocolate vanilla. Wow for sure this is a German chocolate cake. Very well done.

Black color. Aroma of chocolate and coconut. The flavor is dominated by the chocolate and coconut, rich but not sweet, with bold bitterness; roasted nuts in the final.
Another very clean and interesting beer from Icicle.

The color is almost black. A lot of real chocolate, but in beer it tends to get a cheap turn, moderately sweet, smooth.

On tap @ Waddell’s, our third brewpub stop on TvM’s Bachelor Party NW Ale Trail Expedition. Guest tap. Dark brown with golden Amber highlights. Aroma of dark chocolate, caramel, and vague coconut. Flavour is the same, but lacking body. The more I sipped of this, the less it appealed to me, kind of fake tasting like a Starbucks syrup but less sweet. Just ok to me.

22oz bottle shared by Andrew at tasting. This was definitely as advertised, end of flavor and aftertaste came off as rich delicious chocolate cake. On top of that there is no residual sweetness or Southern Tier like over the top sweetness. Its just those chocolate cake flavors without sugar. How did they do this? Artificial flavors?

Draft pour at the brewery. Pours a dark brown with a small.foam head. It’s always fun when you try a beer with a specific flavor in mind, and it hits it perfectly. This tastes just like German chocolate cake, and lucky for me, I love it. Flavor is chocolate throughout with a big coconut finish. Very tasty dessert beer. Good stuff.

1.3 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Draught in a flight at the brewpub. By far, the least favorite beer I tried here (I DETEST coconut). Pours a near black color with no head on it. Nose and taste are both filled with coconut to a degree that makes me abhor this beer. There’s a bit of chocolate in there, too, but that is subtler than the coconut. No me gusta.

Had at Icicle Brewing Co. in Leavenworth, WA. Dark robust brown in color with a tan head that lingers. Smells of coffee and coconut with some dark chocolate as well. Tastes the same with big coconut punch for the finish. Really does taste like a german chocolate cake in a beer form. Very interesting. Coconut tasted more like an extract for how prominent it was. Good beer to try, definately couldn’t drink two as it would be a little rich.
