Fantastic Voyage is a harmonic melange of coconut and Imperial Milk Stout brought to us by brewer Jim Leabig. Loads of coconut, lactose and black malt balance each other to provide flavors reminiscent of chocolate covered coconut with a finish smooth like silk sheets. Best enjoyed while listening to slow jams by candlelight.

Bottle purchased at Binny’s Grand. Poured into my Portsmouth tulip glass. Pours a pitch black in color with a fingers worth of head cocoa colored head. The beer has a surprisingly good head retention. Pretty complex nose, though it isn’t great. I get chocolate malt, cocoa, toasted marshmallow, some light coconut, and just the smallest amount of the lactose. There is something there that is a little "off", but I can’t put my finger on what it is. This started out tasting strictly like a milk stout, but as I continue to drink it, I can definitely get the coconut. Once it warms a little, it reminds me of an almond joy. In addition to chocolate and coconut, I get a little cinnamon. Moderate mouthfeel, some astringency, light sweetness, lightly boozy, and a moderate finish. Pretty solid effort from Perennial, I really like what they’re doing.

Dark brown to black pour with a tan head. The aroma has some nice chocolate, coconut and roasted malt. The flavor is similar. The chocolate and roasted malt notes go very well with the coconut, brown sugar and boozy character. Medium carbonation and thick mouthfeel.

Dark black. No head. Lots of sweet coconut, but like coconut sugar, not like coconut pie. Kind of creamy. Very smooth. Nice amount of chocolate cutting through. Thx Carter.

Pour on tap, dark brownish pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of cocoa, roast, coffee into a bit of soy sauce, booze, touch of acidic malt, slight smoky ash as well. Taste was a mix of ash, cocoa, roast into some anise,soy sauce, finishing sweet, slightly acidic.

wedgie9 (2528) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 2, 2015
Tasted in July 2013 from a capped 750mL bottle that Adam and I picked up during a baseball trip in St. Louis. Pours black with an average brown head that leaves average lace. The nose is super roasty with dark chocolate, coffee, and a bit of a soy sauce note. The flavor is sweet coconut up front with some milk chocolate, roast, and a soy sauce note suggesting oxidation or infection. The body is full with average carbonation and a long, almost sour, sweet and roasted finish. Will try this one again if I get the chance.

Drain pour. Bottle had clearly turned and was only a few months old. Very sour cherry notes and no hint of coconut. Hopefully just a bad bottle. Will try again and will update the rating.

Pour is black with a tight mocha head. Nose is heavy roast with a moderate sugary sweetness and a faint coconut touch. Taste is less roast but far more sweet. The coconut is more present and there is still some roast up front. The sweetness is overpowering and sugary. Full bodied and strong carbonation with an oily slick feel.

Bottle thanks to RobertDale! Pours dark black with a medium somewhat fizzy brown head that dissipates fairly quickly leaving a ring that laces pretty well. Aroma is surprisingly roasty, ash, chocolate, anise. Flavor is a bit acidic; tons of ashes here, a light tartness with the acidity; infected, methinks. No real coconut in the flavor, burned malts and some chocolate. Lightish body for the style, not really that silky either. This beer disappoints. Probably should have drank it upon receipt.

From notes, consumed on 5/7/13. Bottle poured into a Belgian snifter. Pours jet black with a finger of tan head. Aromas of caramel, coconut, dark fruit, chocolate. Tasting notes of coconut, chocolate, vanilla, caramel, lactose. Medium-full body with a semi-dry finish.

750 ml Bottle from Dawson’s while visiting Maryland. Bottled 4/2013,so I really should have paid attention to the dating when I bought this. i assume the coconut will be gone. Pours black with a one finger mocha colored head that looks lightly creamy. Sweet lactose and chocolate aroma, a good bit of roast, don’t get much coconut. Flavor is sweet lactose, graham cracker, and again not much coconut to speak of except maybe a hint of sweetness that isn’t lactose or chocolate. There seems to be a bit of cardboardy oxidation in this as well. Body is medium with medium plus carbonation. Not a bad beer, but I must say I am a little disappointed here but that may not be fair given the bottle date and known disappearance of coconut in these beers.
