4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml bottle poured to a Perennial Snifter:
Aroma: Alcohol, coconut, chocolate, vanilla, and caramel.
Appearance: A foamy, quickly dissipating mocha head, that leaves no lacing.
Taste: A medium sweetness.
Palate: The body is light for the style. Fizzy carbonation, a thin, slick texture, with creamy notes on the finish which is long. The mouthfeel is perhaps the most complex element of this beer.
Overall: This is my third time trying this, and have decided to review it finally. Being that it is my third time having it, obviously I would recommend it. I believe it’s a well done interesting take on a milk stout, introducing the coconut to it. Surprised I have not had coconut in more stouts. Another well done beer from Perennial.

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

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
