From notes: tap pour into snifter. Color is same as normal AB. Aroma is features strong notes of coconut, both fresh and toasted. Smells much sweeter than its normal base. Taste is the balanced base of AB without a lingering bitter finish as the coconut sweetens the end of the aftertaste. This tastss awesome, but might get tiresome.

Ap. Pours a deep amber with tan edges. Aro: Fairly fresh AB. Big hops, burnt toast, sweet malt, alcohol. Taste. Bitter astringent hops. Burnt toast. Mouth. Medium bodied full carb. Ov. Didnt pick up the coconut. The beer is too agressive for me to pick up something as delicate. Others told me they tasted it just fine. I dunno.

Served on tap at the Stone 15th Anniversary Celebration. The appearance is a golden reb/brown. Pretty clear bodied. The aroma is mostly earthy hops with a light coconut. The flavors start out full of raw coconut with some spicy malts and hops. As you go on it becomes more of an English hop flavors. Futher on this taste more lemon cleaner. Very interesting. Not sure if those flavor changes are from palate fatigue or are just in there. If it was all with the original coconut and spicy hops this would of been even better. Would like to try this again.

Very special thanks to Coco Loco, Mojo Jojo, and Suitcase Baby for the growler fill of this beer. Dark brown with a beautiful thick creamy off white head. Very floral coconut, tropical fruit, caramel, and vanilla aroma. Tastes of caramel, vanilla, tropical fruit, and subtle coconut with a dry bitter finish and hints of black licorice. Smooth silky, bright and lively palate. Very good.

Cask at Stone Bistro. This is a strange idea for experimental beer, the flavors don’t really go together. Clear amberish pour, frothy small off-white head. As it turns out, the coconut does not show up very strongly. Fruit, light bready malt, harshly bitter hops, metallic on the tongue, and some sweet coconut in the back of the mouth. Overall it’s not terribly different, but I don’t like it that much anyway.
