Boliv (1149) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 19, 2008
On tap at the brewpub. Poured dark brown/black with a small brown head. Aroma of dairy, coffee, and roasted malts. No discernable coconut. The same applies for the flavor; roasted, malty, mostly sweet and smooth with a nutty finish. Can’t say I detect any sort of coconut here...a smooth, drinkable stout, but somewhat one-dimensional and lacking any real depth.

Draft @ Brewpub. Black pour with a tan head. Aroma of light roasted malt, chocolate and light cream. Flavors of toasted coconut, bitter chocolate, roasted malt and coffee. Medium body, roasty/light sweetness roasty/nutty finish. Nice.

BŁckDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 4, 2007
Draft @ Minneapolis Brewpub: Black, tan head, light lacing. Nose of light roast and chocolate, sweet raisin and cocoa, a little coffee. The flavor is smooth and creamy, a robust finish, no coconut noticeable but great.

decaturstevo (5024) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - AUG 1, 2007
On tap before RBSG 07 grand tasting. A creamy black pour with a nice brown head. Flavor of semi sweet chocolate milk with a hint of bitter in the finish. Palate was just a tad thin, but my favorite beer at the RB this day. A beer I would be proud to say I made, but then that would be a lie? Good beer.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - JUL 24, 2007
On tap (sampler) at the Minneapolis location, RBSG 2007 pre-tasting dinner. Listed as Coconut Milk Stout. Black with a light brown head. Good lace. Bittersweet chocolate and coffee nose. Flavors follow the nose - no coconut? That aside, a pleasant soft mouthfeel rounds out a solid stout. Nice.

chriso (7365) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2007
On tap (sampler) at the Minneapolis location, June 2007 as "Coconut Milk Stout". Very dark, almost black and opaque with an incomplete brown head. Very roasty burnt malt and chocolate flavour. More chocolate in the flavour. Canít say I picked up any coconut but I did note down a sort of rum & raisin element - Iím glad to see that Maniac picked that up too as I wondered whether my tasting faculties had gone awol. The mouthfeel is dominated by burnt notes. Decent enough but not quite as interesting as it sounded.

boboski (1095) - Alabama, USA - JUL 10, 2007
Nitro draft at RBM. Opaque black with brown edging. Awesome retention of a cream colored, creamy head, thick lacing. Nice roastiness leads in the aroma, followed by ample chocolate, caramel, but strangely no detectable coconut. The flavor has a hint of what may be coconut, but if thatís what it is, itís hiding. Roast in the flavor is lighter, lighter all the way around actually. Lightly bitter, lightly to medium sweet. With warming a lactose note sneaks out. Semi-sweet finish. Decent, somewhat charming, but whereís my coconut?

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - JUL 9, 2007
Brewpub draft. Black/dark brown pour, 1cm thick, creamy light brown head. Coconut is m.i.a. in this one. Lots of roasty malt, bittersweet dark chocolate, light coffee, light milk chocolate. Medium body, smooth, easy. Solid stout.

jsquire (3468) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - JUL 7, 2007
Had this on the nitro tap at the Minneapolis Rock Bottom during 07 RBSG. Billed as the "Coconut Milk Stout." Dark beer with mahogany hints against the light. Creamy brown head. Very creamy beer, especially sipped through the long lasting nitro head. Light roasted grain nose. I didnít get any real coconut flavors. I got more of the soft, sweet caramel, some chocolate, coffee and lactic acidity. This is a very easy drinking beer and I could finish off every day with one of these.

Skyview (5209) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUL 6, 2007
Sampled at brewpub prior to RBSGí07. Pours a clear dark brown brew with a light tan head that slowly dissolved from the nitro charge. Aroma of dark coffee, black liquorice, some faint chocolate and molasses. Taste is where the coconut kicks in but very, very light. Taste is smooth creamy with a slight flowery hop aftertaste.
