APPEARANCE- hard to tell... Itís in a can. He head that pops through looks light and beige. The beer looks brownish, so it gets an average grade for appearance.
NOSE- malty sweetness abounds when I pop this open.
FLAVOR- sweet at the beginning with considerable (but not too much) bitterness at the end. I donít taste much in the way of cocoa or coconut.

Thank you tderoeck! Good amount of 473 ml. can if I am correct sampled @ Bierfestival Brugge 2016. Black mocha with little tanned head. Nose is sweetish powdery mocha, artificial chocolate, sugar, cheap artificial mocha, instant chocolate milk, cacao powder. Taste is big cheap artificial chocolate & mocha, with zero coconut, cheap chocolate spread, mocha, caramel, artificial. Body is artificial chocolate. Overly artificial chocolate spread taste instead of real cacao but fun & enjoyable to drink all the same. I am getting absolutely zero coconut here which is unfortunate.
