COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Youíll find flavors of chocolate and caramel with a touch of Goldings hops in this ale. The subtle coconut finish is from the use of natural coconut fiber during the aging of the beer.

The concept of this beer frightened me, since I find coconut to be too intensely sweet to eat. I have to admit, I was impressed by the drinkability of the ale. In body, itís a reddish chestnut with a pale yellow/brown head. The aroma is sweet malts with chocolate and just a hint of coconut. It tastes of lightly roasted malts, caramel, chocolate, coconut, and just enough earthy bitterness to temper the sweetness. Nice.

Pours a dark mahogany with a thin khaki head that fades about halfway down. Nose is dusty malt, no sweetness at all, and just a trace of cocoanut. Taste is at first mostly dark roasted malt and brown ale flavors. A rich, nutty base with chocolate malt and nice earthy, peat elements. Cocoanut flavors are not as apparent as expected but are detectable late in the taste along with some vanilla. Sweetness and cocoanut flavors build over time, so the end of the glass is different than the start. Mouthfeel is medium, very drinkable. Stands alone as a brown ale, only made better with the cocoanut addition as itís not strong enough to wear on the palate.
