4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2015 Pronounced chocolate and coconut aromas and flavors dominate this oatmeal stout. Nicely rich and just shy of too sweet, the flavor is very comparable to a Mounds candy bar.

Sampled at Mass Brewers Fest ’14. Poured dark brown/black with a thin off white ring. Oatmeal, milk chocolate and coconut on the aroma. Sweet milk chocolate on the flavor with a substantial amount of coconut. Hints of vanilla bean. Medium bodied with a lactic creaminess. By far my favorite beer of the afternoon. My only regret was there were no bottles left for purchase by the time I dragged myself away from the tasting area.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle in a teku. Pours black with a lacy, tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, toasted coconut, some light dough, and hints of bitterness. Flavor the same, but there’s some off flavor and I’m not really sure what it’s from. Average to smoother texture. A cool beer, but could be refined into something way better. Also, not sure on the freshness of the bottle if that makes a difference.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a burnt umber color with a finger or two of eggshell foam. The nose is earthy ash, muttled cocoa and traces of coconut. The palate follows with a bit of duality in the palate. Nice almond joy undertones with balanced flavors of cocoa and coconut mingling with a nutty maltiness. However it drinks a bit thin and the finish is abrupt and turns a bit strange.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pourer thick dark chocolate unclear with a decent creamy cocoa head. Aroma is so sweet and delectable bringing sweet notes of caramel and coconut and cappuccino. Flavor brings some toasted and sweet coconut flavors, as well a chocolate on a creamy body.

Tap. Pours opaque brown with thin, lasting white head. Tons of coconut on the nose with some chocolate. Drinks smoothly with little bitterness. Heavy coconut on the palate. Interesting flavor but not balanced enough for me.
