Tasting at the pad of the ever gracious Bruce. Opaque dark brown beer, yellowish pale tan head. Palate is smooth and softish, semi dry. Soft creamy malt with a light touch of dark chocolate. Big coconut combines with the chocolate and cream to give a nice Bounty Bar vibe. Light and mellow Cognac leads to mild tangy dark fruits. Sweet and tasty. Lovely.
