3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Heavy dark brown with a faint ruby highlight around the edge, with a big creamy foamy light khaki head. Nose has a lot of sweet cocoa an sweet earthy coconut tones, not like candied or flaked coconut, but has this earthy sweet roasty tone. The taste is roasty and sweet, with a tropical earthiness that reminds me of the caribbean, a touch o creamy coconut and a firm creamy, sweet, dark malty body.

Pours dark unclear brownish black with no head on nitro. Aroma and flavor both bring big roasted malts and some toasted coconut, not sweet as expected. Aroma had some roasted coffee but not vanilla, which you get a tad of on the flavor.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap @ Vine St. Thin, tan head, black beer, plenty of lacing. Nose is a very dessert-like caramel coconut cream. Tastes of a caramel coconut latte drink with dusky unsweetened cocoa. Thin mouth feel with very little carbonation, watery. Nitro tap did not help this beer.

Tap at Vine Street - nice all around balance on this one - creamy and medium bodied - medium sweet - mellow but complex notes of vanilla, chocolate, toasted coconut, a light nutty character, even a touch of woodiness - lingering finish of cream and toasted coconut - very enjoyable.

Pour on tap at the vine st pub, dark brownish black with nice tan head. Aroma brought notes of chocolate, coffee, roasted pecans, nice toasted coconut, touch of vanilla, hints of toffee as well. Taste is a nice mix of coconut and sweet caramel bittering quickly with dark cocoa, coffee and roast, finishing fairly dry and bitter. This was very well executed.
