3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours clear brown with tan fizzy head. Aroma of subtle toasted coconut with hints of chocolate with signs of dark roast. Flavor is much the same with an off-dry characteristic. Mouthfeel is light body with high carbonation. Overall, a tasty brew but I enjoyed it more after the first bottle.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The beer pours a medium brown color with an off-white head. The aroma is full of chocolate and toffee notes, exactly what I expect from a big American brown ale. The flavor is more complex. There chocolate and toffee are still present, but the toasted coconuts also really come through and add to the overall flavor. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very nice.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Tattooed Mom. Dark honey color with a thin white head. Strong taste of real coconut. Not just a one note, but the full range of flavors you get from fresh toasted unsweeted coconut. Medium body. Palate is a bit oily. Some hop bitterness and burned sugar balance things out. Not for everyone, but it is quite an unusual taste.

Medium brown with a thin off-white head. Nutty malty aroma. Toasty, nutty malt on the palate, the coconut flavors compliment the rest of the beer really well. Great brew.

On tap at the dutch, sample by ser alex stark. Amber capped by small head. Nose is kinda bland. Big sweet taste, toasted malt, chocolate, cocoa flakes. An almond joy in liquid form. Aight, but not my cup of tea. I assume Joffrey Baratheon (lannister) would enjoy this.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Admittedly surprised how much I liked this, pours deep ruby brown with a finger thick tan head. Full nose of caramel, coconut, chocolate and moderate fruit. Maybe it’s just because Girlscout Cookie season ended, but this brought me back a couple months to when I opened my first box of Somoas. A slight bitterness in the flavor added to the Somoa like nose. Dry, decent finish and medium mouthfeel.

Great beer that I have had on tap and in the bottle.
First had @gabf.
Love the cocoanut. It is pure bliss with the toasted coming through. I taste a butterscotch in there as well but who knows.

12 oz bottle pours amber with a off white head. Aroma is of malt and the sweet coconut. Taste is malt, coconut and a little bitterness. Strange beer.

Growler @ Cumming Beverage Mart. Medium brown color. Aroma of brown ale. Toasted malts, not much else. Tastes of toasted malt, bitter hops. Don’t really find all of the coconut that others have raved about. Definitely oily. My lips feel like they have chapstick on. (3289)
