COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The addition of fresh coconut to our sweet milk stout makes a great combo.

Figured I’d get the double tick on this one. Growler brought back from the brewery three days ago. This will give me the opportunity to see the head anyway. Poured into a pint glass. 3.0 A: Black color. Frothy quickly disappering head. The on-tap version came with just a touch of head, but it had completely different characteristics. Weird. 4.5 S: Coconut is the strongest this time. Lactose and chocolate are next. Pretty much the same, but I also picked up a stronger roastiness. I like the aroma better the second time around for whatever reason. 4.5 T: The coconut shows up big time in the taste. Chocolate and lactose aren’t that far behind. Subtle bitterness that comes from the very apparent roastiness. Same as fresh on-tap. 4.5 M: Medium body. Super smooth and creamy. Good moderate carbonation. 5.0 D: This goes down super easy. I wasn’t sure about coconut and stout, but it worked out well. I shared this with four other guys. A portion of me wishes I just drank it myself.

Rich cocoa goodness throughout, just a nice, roasted stout of normal, even quality...and then the coconut hits you on the back end of the palate, and you realize you’re drinking a dark chocolate Mounds bar. The finish is coconut oil, making it very different from things like Maui CoCoNut porter which is more roasted/German Chocolate Cake like. Beer that I would love to see bottled on shelves; the reality is practically the polar opposite.

Growler shared at Paul’s Thanksgiving tasting. Pours near black with a beige head. Nice roasty aroma with some coconut sweetness, vanilla, and chocolate. The flavor has sweet coconut, lightly roasted malts, and chocolate. The body is a bit on the thin side, but doesn’t detract from the overall experience. A really cool beer.

Growler at Paul’s tasting. Pours a ruby and crimson tinged black with no head. Light coconut, roast, toast and chocolate. Chewy malt, cocoa, nice nutty sweetness. Nice sweet coconut, which grows as it warms, toast. Could use a little more body, but I’ll attribute that to the growler. Sweet chocolate and more coconut on the finish.

On tap at Town Hall on 10/30/10. Black pour with a medium light brown head. Aroma is coconut, chocolate and caramel. Huge coconut flavor with a bit of chocolate and a coconut finish.

Pours black with a medium head that sticks around for quite a while. The aroma is coffee and dark chocolate up front and is generally roasty all together. However the coconut shines through as the beer warms. The beer smells fairly sweet while it only tastes very moderately so. The flavor displays bitter chocolate up front but gives way to loads of earthy fresh coconut and some milk chocolate. The beer is pretty rich and like it was described to me has a character of a mounds bar. Really very tasty stuff.

Town hall three hour tour. Growler from Sean. Thanks man!.. pours a medium dense cola black pour with a light beige head... Aroma is huge on coconut flakes with chocolate undertones but the coconut really takes off and keeps hold... Flavors are much of the same with again big coconut and chocolate. Some residual sweetness involved but all in all a pretty satisfying experience. Would love to try this one again. 9/4/8/4/15

Liquid candybar, anyone? pours heavy black with very little head. nose is sweet coconut with maybe a slight hint of chocolate. taste is very much the same. the coconut is very pronounced but smooth and not overpowering. blends extremely well with the stout flavors. this is excellent.

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2011 Tap. Ahhh, 3 Hour Tour, so we meet again. I have been craving this beer ever since i had it last year. Pours a nice dark brown with a tan 1 finger head. The aroma is coconut right off the bat and in your face followed by mild dark chocolate and vanilla. The taste is liquid Mounds Bar through and through! The coconut flavor is present the entire time but you also do get some dark chocolate, vanilla, and roast coffee notes. Medium/heavy mouthfeel. Some people I talked to have said 1 is enough as it can be a little sweet but for me, this by far is the best coconut beer and I could drink it everyday, all day. 2011: Version seems slightly more roasty and a little less coconut than I recall. Mouthfeel seems a little lighter as well. Still pretty awesome though and one of my favorite!

On tap. Dark brown with a hint of deep auburn highlights. Small tan head present, but it fades rather quick. Coconut dominates the nose, with cocoa showing up too. Taste is coconut shavings with chocoate and caramel. Tastes like a desert bar/brownie.
