COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bourbon barrel aged American strong ale finished with coconut and Coldbot coffee.

This American Strong Ale is malt-rich with a syrupy caramel base that melts into the silky sweetness of its coconut feature. An exclusive blend of hand-roasted Coldbot Coffee beans balances the dessert beer with warm, roasty bitterness. It’s a liquid macaroon!

Draft at Mon Petit Cafe, Stuttgart. Dark amber, aroma of alcohol, caramel, coconut. Quite sweet, notes of cocnut and caramel, a bit alcoholic, umami.

Dark clear brown in color... Aroma of bourbon, vanilla, coconut, coffee, dark fruits... Body and finish is a bit thinner than I was expecting, lots of bourbon up front, some dark fruits, coconut, coffee... Rum lingers on palate... Solid but not their best ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had on tap at the brewery & from the bottle at various times. Fresh, it was a bit on the boozey side however the vanilla and coconut more than make up for that. It’s no thick Bottle Logic stout but its damn delicious. Aged, the coffee & coconut have faded out, but the brewery did say to drink fresh so I can’t really fault it. However it’s a much smoother beer now. Very easy to drink for being 14%

phaleslu (10553) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 1, 2017
500 ml bottle via trade. Pours a lightly cloudy amber with a small off-white head that settles into a ring, leaving spots of lace in the glass. Notes of fruitcake, caramel, candied nuts, toasted malts, bourbon, coconut, mild coffee, and chocolate. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet, coating, warming mouthfeel. Probably would’ve rated out better individually, but on the heels of three Bottle Logic stouts, it had a tall order ahead of it.

Bottle thanks to phaleslu--phone finally autocorrects to phaleslu so I’m definitely winning. Dark reddish brown pour. Loads or caramel -- vanilla caramel covered in milk chocolate. Sweet, rich, smooth, sexy velvety goodness. Digging the hell out of this. Pretty sweet and rich and decadent, and it’s possible I’m falling prey to the fact that you can just play whack-a-mole with caramel and vanilla and chocolate and I’m hard-wired to love it, but I’m digging the shit out of this.

500ml bottle shared by music man. Poured a caramel brown color with almost no head. Aroma/taste of caramel covered coconut, light coffee, grass, toasted grains, boozy bourbon, and oak.

Bule (2240) - California, USA - FEB 8, 2017
500ml bottle pours a brown color with a bit of head. Nice balance of coconut and bourbon with just the right amount of sweetness. Much more delicious than I expected, not being into coconut beers.

From notes. Enjoyed at a tasting at Josh’s house in Windsor on 12/19. 500 mL bottle. The pour is a darker ruby brownish with a thick ring of tan head that slowly dissipates. We’re backing up a coconut beer with a coconut beer. Hmm. The aroma is really sweet up front, but the coconut really doesn’t come off fake. The chocolate is big right up front. There is a hint of coffee and a nicely balanced coconut. Nothing here really shines, and it seems like they’re all independent, rather than melding together. The flavor is similar. The chocolate and coffee come up first, the coconut next, and then there is a strong dark fruitiness that comes through. I’m not feeling it. The mouth feel is decently viscous, but carries a brighter carbonation and a lingeringly coffee-infused chocolate and bourbon on the finish. It’s really interesting.

Bottle shared at Dan’s. Poured a muddy light brown with a smaller spotty light beige head. Aroma was sort of Mehr, booze and cardboard dominate. Flavor improves greatly from the aroma, sweet caramel, coconut, light booze, medium toast. Medium to fuller syrupy mouthfeel, light carbonation and solid heat throughout that lingers long after the swallow.
