Sent by Robbie, shared at game night. Coffee dominates, chocolate too, but the coconut is buried in here somewhere. Delicious though. neongolden (2175) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 23, 2018
(500ml bottle from the Hafis shop) Pours black with a fine beige head that lasts well with lace. Quite dry and roasty, notes of coffee, earth/ash, cacao, sligthly burnt/tarry, soft touch of torrified sugars and sweetening coconut, a bit dusty, with a moderately bitter finish and long aftertaste of coffee. A bit light bodied but creamy with soft carbonation. I don't regularly drink stouts in this ABV range now and it's certainly on the lighter side but it's very pleasant and nicely flavoured.

500 ml bottle from brewery side-by-side with the Left Field version. Pours a very dark brown with a modest-sized light tan head - I’d say this version is darker than the Left Field but the difference is minimal. Aroma is fairly toasty with coffee, cocoa and light nuts. Flavour has lots of coffee, solid roast, cocoa and a little coconut. Coconut presence is definitely more subtle and coffee somewhat more assertive than the Left Field version. Slick mouthfeel. Not much difference to me - both of these are really good.

500mL bottle, sent from wilco (thanks a lot, Mike), pours a jet black with a medium tan head. Aroma is intense, with lots of deep roasted malt, burnt cocoa, dark earthy coffee, and a touch of coconut. Flavour follows accordingly, with heaps of dark roasted malt, burnt cocoa, caramelized sugar, and earthy coffee. Roasted and very bitter, but appropriately so. Excellent. crazy_cat_lady (782) - - NOV 18, 2017
Bottle from the Hafis location. Pours a very deep dark colour with a dark brown head. Big aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, leather, some cherry notes. Extremely smooth stout. Tastes of semisweet chocolate chips, smooth espresso, lingering roasted bitterness. Tasty. mabel (10011) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 1, 2017

Tasting at Slackbeerplace (2436) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 18, 2017
Black color. The coffee adds to the roasty and ashy character, but it has a good body; the coconut is not evident. Not very subtle or balanced, a good Stout though.
500ml bottle (thx, Nick M.!) at Slack. Pours an oily almost black with dark beige head. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee, some slight coconut. Taste is roasted malt, chocolate, coffee and fruity notes. Roastedalt bitterness aftertaste. Good one.
