4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Draught. Brown and black with medium to dark tan head. Aroma of coco and other chocolate, light coffee and toast. Flavor is sweet with toasty chocolate and again coco powder. Toasty finish and creamy. As beer sits and warms the aroma becomes even boozier in nose with even more coco.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft [nitrogen-dispensed]: Penetrable ebony. Condensed cap of grayish foam. Pleasant nose of soft chocolate malt, roasted barley, vanilla beans, toasted coconut and burnt cookies. Watery, nitro-induced thinness. Black malt zing collides with well-rounded coconut oil and roasted barley. Delicate char lends some light coarseness while the toasted coconut dots the soft malt core with a smidge of sweetness. Slippery estery contribute a mousselike consistency which complements the lactose character. Nicely balanced. Finishes oily and brightly coconut-accented with unsweetened chocolate trailed by long-lasting hints of cocoa, raisin, nutty malt and roasted barley. Not necessarily flawed, but the nitrogen sure does cripple the malt as well as the body.

Crushed with Jakebra on tap at the brewpub. Coffee nose. Chocolate flavor. Great mouthfeel. Jakebra likened it to Left Hand’s Milk Stout. A decent brew.
