3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very dark brown with a tan head and little lace. Aromas of roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, cream and a modest but unmistakable coconut. Flavors march, featuring a roasted malt sweetness and a touch of leafy hops. Medium body, minimal carbonation, smooth mouthfeel and a lingering malt sweetness accompanying the coconut in the end. Ok, but Iím not a big coconut fan.
