22oz bottle 6/28/14 (Armanetti’s-Aurora)-46° in Shaker-Pours a dark amber with a small tan head. Aroma of malt and chocolate. Taste of the same with more chocolate and a very small amount of coconut. This light to medium bodied brew is well balanced and not too bad.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
22oz bottle pours a clear, watery caramel brown with a ring of fast fading white head. Nose is what you’d expect, some coconut meat, raw cocoa nubs, some caramel. Flavor fails to come together, sure there is chocolate and coconut, but it’s almost as if the flavors exist independently. A little bit of suntan lotion. Thin finish. Quite odd.

Faint brown in color. So where the fuck is the coconut and chocolate. Total bullshit. Bad deal.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz. bottle. Rating from notes. Pours a medium to darkish brownish color which I found somewhat surprising. Aroma of chocolate, coconut, mild earth notes as well. Flavor is sweet, soaked in coconut, chocolate, mild bread and cookie dough notes. Not much balance to speak of. Lighter bodied than I thought it would be, somewhat thin. Medium carbonation. Finishes sweet. This is ok, but not something I would buy again.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear dark copper in color with a thinner white head. The aroma isn’t very potent. It contains caramel, light chocolate and coconut, and hints of roasted malts. The taste is a compliment of caramel and coconut, with the caramel standing out more. There is faint chocolate and coffee underneath. Aftertaste is short with that initial caramel and coconut flavor that was initially found. More full in body, with a thick, chewy texture. Minimal carbonation here. This one is rather bland and uninspired.
