Pours almost black from a 12oz bottle at a bottle share with KEN SCHMIDT...the MAN HIMSELF. Aroma is big on coffee and coconut. Tastes the same...chocolate, coconut and coffee. This was a great beer, but pales in comparison to Kenís homebrew version of this called Aloha Plenty...way more coconut, coffee and macadamia flavor.

Bottle. [thanks after4ever]
Pours deep brown, bordering on black. Lovely, staying, creamy, beige head. Aroma has lots of dry coffee, some astringency, light chocolate, some nuttiness. Only mild sweetness. Medium carbonation, very fat and creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is elegant, lots of dry coffee, blackberries, mild astringency, some sweetness, perhaps from the coconut. It is very good, but very dominated by the coffee. Neither Macadamia nor coconut gets a serious way in...

Thanks to bmanning for bringing a bottle of this to a recent tasting.
Poured near black with a nice tan head a good lacing. The initial scent is definitely strong coffee, followed by some nice chocolate. The coconut comes through afterward, and really makes this one fantastic. The taste is quite similar, with everything blending together really, really well. The coffee and coconut make an excellent combination. Moderate to fairly heavy body, and dangerously drinkable. This one definitely did not disappoint.

12oz bottle -
My 2nd (or maybe 3rd, not exactly sure) time with the Stone collaboration series. I enjoyed this one very much. Aroma has a huge coffee punch, coffee with just a smidge of toasted bread/coconut. Flavor showcases the chocolate malts, and it was really hard to pick up any coconut-y goodness. Really reminded me of a Kaluha cake batter. I really like it, but the coconut/macadamia flavors (which can be rather delicate) seemed buried. Maybe fresh itís a different story? Nice beer though and would buy again.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle pours deep brown, almost black, with a khaki head. Aroma is heavy with chocolate syrup, roast malt, coffee and coconut. Flavor shows primarily coffee with the rest fading into the background with additional notes of tar and macadamia nuts. Yes I said it.... Iím not sure if itís because I read it, or ate plenty of them growing up, but I swear itís there. Overall body is full and finishes dry and slightly sour. Pretty damn good stuff.
