Can fromm World Beer Market (Sake Taniguchi). Roast malt nose, with dark chocolate, a bit of coconut, and some nutty notes. Dark brown color, nice tan head, some lace. Deep roasty initial, dark chocolate, bittering rises in mid palate. Cocoa and coconut in mid and final. Medium body. Nice stuff. Coconut is present but largely covered by the roast and bitterness.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can at home. Pours dark brown to black with two fingers of off white head. Aroma is roast and lots of coconut. Flavor follows and is slightly sweet. A bit more roasty than I expected. Coconut works, which it doesn’t always do in beer. But this one was good. Very smooth and creamy. Nice beer.
