3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Kicking off a bachelor party weekend with something a little exotic! This toasted coconut-infused brown ale was a deliciously non-conventional brew, struck a perfect balance of flavorful but not overwhelming coconut flavor with a more traditional toasted caramel malt base. Aroma is toasted malt with just a slight hint of the coconut notes, along with some English-style chocolate malt and earthiness. Taste is smooth coconut-accented maltiness- the coconut takes the place of the nutty note that is more standard for the style. Finishes slightly earthy but refreshing, an excellent beer to change things up occasionally.

Bottle, decent cream colored head, fades to a skiff, body is deep ruby red brown. Aroma, coconut, malt, root beer, faint metal. Taste is malt, coffee, coconut, root beer. Palate is smooth and rich, and almost oily, carbonation moderate. This has great balance, and lots of drinkability!

Deep reddish brown with thin head. Aroma of hazelnut, vanilla, and toffee. Taste is similarly delicious and sweet. Hazelnut is the strongest flavor, but also has toasted coconut and a little chocolate. Finish resembles sugary cereal milk. Palate is oily and medium bodied.
