3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the brewery Port Omna Day 2014. Poured black with a thin tan head. The aroma was roasted malt with a light coconut hint in the background. The initial taste was very heavy on the toasted coconut and reminded me of sun tan lotion. Luckily, it calmed down as it warmed up and I took a few more sips. The strong fragrant side of the taste faded to a much lighter unique complement to the base stout. Actually a very good variant but, not as good as I expected.

Draft at the brewery. Coconut is subdued in the aroma but huge waves of toasted coconut are present in the taste. Thankfully it tastes legit and not syrupy. One of the better varieties.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the Celebration of the Stout 2013. The aroma was big and roasty with the coconut showing up but taking a back seat to all the dark malts. The coconut actually almost adds an additional layer to the roastiness of this beer, burnt toast, light coffee beans and chocolate round this one out.
