Bottle from Ratman. Pours nearly opaque black with a small, fizzy tan head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is chocolate, roast, and coffee malt, coconut, dates, figs, earthy and spicy hops. Flavor is malt dominant, moderately sweet, coconut, spicy alcohol, dark fruits, light hops and bitterness with a sweet finish. Full body and light carbonation. bu11zeye (13239) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JUN 30, 2014

Thick brown colour. Big beer, surprisingly not boozy. Lots of rich chocolate, with coconut in finish. Must be shared. deyholla (12439) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Thanks Jason Bach.
Bottle thanks to the Dood! Pours near black with a deep brown head that dissipates quickly and completely. Aroma has notes of raisins, dark grains, bitter chocolate and a bit of coconut. Flavor is extremely sweet with coconut and sweet chocolate with a hint of roasted malts backing. Overly sweet. rosenbergh (11868) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 14, 2013

Black colour with a small red hue and no head. Little white things floating in the glass.
Mild sourness, toasted malt and dark fruits in the aroma. The flavour is very strong maltiness. Extremely sweet. Incredibly sweet.
This is a beast! Nice oily black pour with floaters. Coconut heaven mixed with fudge and rum. Oh my! hopscotch (11313) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 20, 2014
Bottle... Pours cloudy and brown with no head. Smells like ethanol or vodka with hints of both rum and vanilla, and a faint toasted coconut component. Full-bodied and slick with tingly carbonation. The flavor is quite sweet and very boozy - brown sugar, dark rum, vanilla and toasted coconut. Considering the spirited aroma, I expected big alcohol here, but not so much - as long as I sip slowly.

355 ml. bottle split by 3 @ “Memorabel Tastingkje”. Thanks to tderoeck! 2013 Vintage. Pours black with no head. Flakes of coconut underneath cap. Nose is crazily alcoholic as is the whole beer, we had a 16.45 % ABV Avery beer right before this one & it was nowhere near as boozy as this one. Pure booze in the nose, harsh with thick chocolate syrup underneath, very sweet rum, brown sugar, vanilla, very thick & syrup-like. Wowza this is boozy. Taste is very sweet, brown sugar, chocolate syrup, molasses, toffee, thick malts, prune, plum, date, vanilla, thick black chocolate, booze kick, thick rum, pure booze kick, wowza, thick syrupy creamy body, soft carb. Fun but sort of overkill as well. To bad that I didn’t get any coconut in here but it is probably too old for that now. Great stuff all the same, brutal. alexsdad06 (10947) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - OCT 26, 2014
12 oz bottle shared with Tmoney99 and wihorock. Pours a clear cola brown color with a small off white head that disappeared quickly and floaties. The aroma and flavor have big sweet caramel, chocolate, rum barrel, the coconut is subtle but noticeable, light woody, the rum works well with the coconut, caramel and chocolate. phaleslu (10748) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 19, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Homer321- thanks again, Sean! Pours a deep, hazy, dark amber-brown with almost no head, just scattered tiny bubbles around the edge. Aroma of rum, raisin, coconut, caramel, vanilla, dates, oak, toasted sugar - sweet, warm, and boozy. Flavor of rum, raisin, dates, figs, brown sugar, caramel, vanilla, honey, coconut, oak, and some spices. Medium-bodied, with a really sweet, somewhat chewy and sticky mouthfeel. Coats the palate. Low carbonation. Fun one to share. I like their high-boost stuff.
