4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sample and then a pint at the brewpub on 5/23/15. Brown pour with no head. Aroma of malt, caramel and nuts along with slight coconut and chocolate. Malty and caramelly flavor with coconut, almond and chocolate accents before a nutty and bitter roasty finish. Definitely a beer you want to let warm up before you drink it; coconut and chocolate become much more pronounced. Very tasty stuff.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample from growler. The beer is a dark brown color with a medium tan head that diminishes gradually to a wispy film. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, nuts and chocolate. Medium-bodied with flavors of roast nuts, chocolate malt and subtle coconut. The finish is roasty with a chocolate and coconut aftertaste. Enjoyable all around.

16oz on tap at Jackie-Os, then a half-growler later shared with b3shine. Dark brown color, clear around the edges. Loose splotches of lace. Light tan head. Nice cocoa nibs, milk chocolate, coconut flavors. Very nutty, almondy taste. Medium - plus body. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Nice and crisp. Some light roast malt, coffee in the finish. Light sweet taste, nice moderate bitterness. Delicious and easy to drink. Great Chomo.

Super-fresh growler to snifter (thanks DrSilverworm). Looks good; a hazy brown with off-white lacing. Smells and tastes solid; just as the deacription suggests. Toasted coconut and almonds with a good nut brown backbone. Nice on the palate. Good beer.
