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.

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.

12oz shared by westmeister. Serious sipper here. Such a big beer I dont think Id be able to make it through an entire 12oz myself. Lots of rum and alcohol still even after all this time. Decent amount of coconut and sweetness.

Courtesy my Secret Santa. Glad I tried this, but this is a typical Avery sweet alcoholic bomb. Aroma was decent. Did pick up roasted coconut and dark chocolate through all the alcohol. The beer actually smelled sweet. Pour was a nice enough deep dark black with just a thin tan film for a head. Taste was WAY too sweet. Strong sugary sweetness and strong alcohol drown out any flavors. The finish is sweet dark molasses and pure burnt sugar. Little to no carbonation as expected. The goal of this beer was to make it as strong as possible regardless of flavor and drinkability. Im a quarter way through and considering a drain pour

Bottle at Exira Beer Summit IV. Pours a black color with tan head. Coconut, roasty, chocolate, tangy aromas. Syrupy, chocolate, coconut, candy bar, toffee, alcohol flavors. Big alcohol, and sweet and syrupy.

Lukaduke (3045) - Gray, Maine, USA - NOV 22, 2013
Bottle thanks to adnielsen ! Pours a rich thick viscous burnt umber color with a finger or so of eggshell foam. The nose is sweet milk chocolate, deep dark fruit, coconut, rum booze... the palate follows and there are moments when my eyes roll into the back of my head and Im wrapped up in a beautifully balanced cacophony of needhams candy, rum booze and milk chocolate syrup. There are other moments where I feel like Im just way too stereotypically American and like this beer because its sweet, but then I look at the abv and say shit... Im getting wasted ! Yummy beer that I would drink again anytime as long as its for dessert.

Bottle gift from SJ. Damn was this good. Nice notes of bitter chocolate, roast, earth and coconut. Nice full body, alcohol was blended in with a mix of sugary greatness. Well Done.
