Can that was a consolation prize when my local beer store tapped their keg of Wicked Weed Coquito Brown Ale. Deep dark brown thin pour, moderately creamy off white head. Mild but nice bitter cocoa nose. Surprisingly bitter, earthy coffee and bitter cocoa notes. Grassy finish. We’re bordering on Black IPA here.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
From site: Chocolate and brown malts contribute a deep rich color with Ruby highlights in this robust Porter. Bitterness from American chocolate malt is balanced by the sweet roastiness of toasted organic coconut.
