COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Pours black with brown head. Smell is subdued, but filled with chocolate and cream. Taste is creamy, chocolate with balanced amount of sweetness. Lactose comes through, but the coconut is only is the backround. I kinda wished to taste the coconut more, but this is great just the way it is. Very smooth texture, like heavy cream. After taste is not too sweet and delivers a clean chocolate liquor finish. I like it.

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 (2596) - 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.
