COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
No. 15, much like a certain fabled two-piece candy bar of our youth, rich, dark chocolate notes accented with aromatic toasted coconut. What would add depth and character to this already delicious combo, we wondered? The answer is time (6 months) well spent in the very best rum barrels available.

Poured a darker orange to. Rown with a small beige head. Aro.a was big coconut malibu rum character and caramel, very sweet snelling. Flavor similar, like sweetened coconut water. I could get down with this in small doses.

Sampled at The Argonaut during GABF week. Brown/black with a tan head. Huge, yet smooth coconut porter with dark chocolate and light rum. Sweet finish. Wow.

Bottle shared by drsilverworm. Pours a darker brown with no head, but there are some fatty looking globs floating on the top of the beer. The aroma is nutty, chocolate, and a lot of booze. Taste has a lot of booze to it with a warming alcohol. I get the coconut more as an afterthought lost finish.

jkwood04 (5368) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 2, 2014
12oz bottle in a snifter. Pour dark brown with small, beige head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts, light coconut, rum barrels, and light toffee. Flavor the same with a decent blend. Average to smoother texture. A cool beer but not as good as I was hoping for.

Bottle. Nose is silky and smooth with light vanilla. There are actually chunks in my glass. I hope that is coconut. Lush rich and chocolate. Really yummy. Very smooth initially. A slight boost as it warms. Nice.

HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - OCT 11, 2013
12 oz. bottle shared with my man Cary. Pours a cola brown color with small ring around the glass. Aroma of coconut, rum, chocolate candy bar, lots of cocoa and booze. Intoxicating aroma. Flavor is sweet, alcohol sweet, slight alcoholic burn, medium barrel notes. Slick, oily body, full mouthfeel, average carbonation. Finishes big and sweet. Interesting.

hackobock (3812) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 16, 2014
Bottle, February 15, 2014. After some time in the cellar its taken a more vinous port-like character, the coconut is barley noticeable and the rum notes are more subtle. This bottle had some of the coconut flakes in it as well. Its past its peak. 8-3-8-4-16=39. Bottle on release day. Pours brown with a small tan head. Aroma is is a very nice mix of rum and chocolate, vanilla, oak, dark fruits and light coconut. Taste follows with sweet rum, chocolate, vanilla dark fruits. Full bodied with low carbonation.
