3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from ?? - pours pitch with a clumpy tan head. Aroma is coconut and sweet from the lactose. It’s has some thickness on the palate. It’s surprising boozy for 7%. I’m confused by this one.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from unknown store. Pours black with a khaki head. Leaves a lot of lacing in the glass. I get a bit of the lactose on the nose but not so much on the tongue. There’s definitely coconut there but it’s more subdued than I was expecting. Finishes clean. Eh!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle... RBSG 2014… Pours clear and dark-brown with brilliant flashes of crimson and a small, creamy, beige head. Good retention. The nose is of roasted nuts and milk chocolate. Full-bodied and velvety with tingly carbonation. The sweet, chocolaty and nutty flavor is flanked by a lengthy, roasty, lightly-bitter finish. I picked up no coconut here.

Taste is a bit all over the place, milky coconut, toasted coconut, light nutty notes, mild roast coffee, smooth sweetness, some earthy.nutty coconut. Body slightly thinner than I’d like it.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber with the bulging-eye coconut. Nose is roasty, chocolaty stout with coffee overtones, nuts. Pours deep dark brown-black with a ruby peeking out from underneath, supports a jiggling dense tan head. Taste is lightly sweet, light lactose under strong red berries, very nice smooth roast, mocha, nuts. Traditional ’coconut’ flavor is relatively mild here and gets lost with the sweetness somewhat, but the nuttier character is more evident and really developed, as if they toasted the shredded coconut before racking. Medium body is creamy and a smidgen oily, as if there were oats used here as well. No alcohol apparent other than in the eventual warmth in my torso, but even that’s mild; sticky lips and a surprisingly good maltiness for what I assume to be a simple bill. Good level of complexity and fun to drink!
