12 oz’er from a trade with my buddy Rybeast on the Left Coast. Very, very excited about this. Lovely pour, ample light-brown head. Aroma is heavy roast, fresh, dark coffee... so strong, hits you when you’ well before you reach the glass. One word -- SILK. Holy shit, this is smooth. Coffee flavor dominates, bursts when held in the mouth.Touches of roasted coconut. My lord this is delicious. Extremely impressed with the mouthfeel, so smooth. Just enough bitterness to . Sweet, with just enough bitterness to balance it out. Thanks so much Ryan. Thrilled to try this.

Pours dark brown with almost no head. Faint, pleasant aroma of chocolate and coffee. Initially strongly tastes of coffee with nut and chocolate addition. Moves into a flavor of hops, then finishes with more of the big roasted coffee character in a lingering aftertaste.

Bottle courtesy of BOLTZ7555 (you rock Jason). Pours a deep rich brown, like a nice cup of joe. Creamy tan head. Nose is fresh roasted coffee beans, with hints of toasted almond & molasses. Flavor is dark roast coffee, bittersweet chocolate, burnt sugar, roasted nuts & bourbon. Medium body with light carbonation and alcohol sweetness that finishes a little warm. A very carefully and well crafted balance.

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2010 12 oz bottle. Nose of chocolate and a bit more bitterness than I was expecting. Same through the flavor. A good solid beer, with hints of chocolate, a bit of coffee and coconut. Smooth finish with a touch of bitterness at the end.

I’d take it or leave it. I had it a few weeks ago but don’t remember much either way.

Black, with a little white head. Strong coffee scent. A nice sequence of flavors: coffee, the coconut.

Deep brown with a tan head. Coffee and macadamia flavors clearly present. Somewhat sweet with a bitter aftertaste. Can’t quite taste the coconut.
