4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours black from the can. The tan head soon fades to a wispy thin layering. An intriguing aroma greets the nose: the usual strong roasted notes of a porter, but softened with a coconut sweetness. Still relatively subtle but noticeable, as though someone poured a porter into a nearly finished pina colada. Taste is lightly chocolate sweet with a mild, smooth finish inflected with a touch of coconut. Body is medium and the alcohol is well disguised. On the whole this is on the sweeter side of the class and a creamy milk chocolate with a tropical twang takes precedence over the more bitter coffee notes. Still, the balance is excellent here. Pure sipping pleasure.

Moderate foam and a thick dark pour. Scent is toast and coffee, slight hint of sweetness to the back. Creamy and faintly bitter. Dark chocolate and walnuts with the very slight hint of coconut that once tasted permeates the nose. A really fantastic little brew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. Nose is milk chocolate, coconut, cream, hint of vanilla; bounty bar. Taste is a bounty bar coconut and chocolate, leading to roasted malts, toast, hint of smoke, hazelnut before finishing milk chocolate sweet with a hint of coconut. It’s nice enough but I think would benefit for being richer and bigger.

Musta olut pienellä beigellä vaahdolla. Tuoksu houkutteleva ja vahva; makeahko kahvinen ja maitosuklainen. Maku katkerahko, paahteisen maltainen ja vahva kahvi maistuu selkeästi. Kuitenkin hieman yksiulotteinen maun puolesta. Kookosta en löydä, sitä olisi saanut olla selvästi tuntuvammin mukana.

Can from Hop Hideout, Sheffield. Black with small off white head. Aroma is nutty and smokey, definite coconut, only on certain sips though! Taste is bitter and dry. Prickly and a bit thin.
