Boardman, Oh - Vintage Estate Beer and Wine - 12 oz bottle. Sable black pour, thin, quickly dissipating mocha colored head. Aroma has some licorice accents, a touch of coconut. Flavor runs along the same lines, coconut is quite prominent but not obtrusive or overwhelming. Chocolate comes around in the back end and finishes it off nicely. Decently thick mouthfeel.

Bottle. Nose heavily coconut milk, essentially cloyingly so, with a little husk thrown in the deep bg. Pour a rich mahogany that is more black in the glass, a little ruby poking out of the bottom of the pint glass, a short and ephemeral light brown head, creamy but upset by the adjuncts, I think. Taste is very sweet and always threatens to cloy, but that rich natural coconut taste is just dynamite, supported but smooth medium chocolate. The velvety texture offsets a somewhat flat feel in the full body, though Im not sure more aggressive carbonation would work. A touch of fruit and a touch of malt, if you can believe it, with additional waves of chocolate lapping the palate. I hesitate to celebrate this for lack of traditional "beeriness", but its a clean, solid, rare profile, and a successful one at that. Would absolutely have again; sweet teeth with rejoice.

dark brown to black with reddish highlights; chocolaty aroma with coconut and vanilla notes; sweet, roasted malt base; notes of vanilla and crme brulee; a bit artificial tasting

screigh (678) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 26, 2016
Pours a deep clear brown with ruby highlights. Almost no head. Chocolate and malty aroma. Im picking up mainly chocolate and tobacco in the flavor. Maybe some coconut in the finish.

dmac (5715) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - FEB 6, 2016
12oz bottle from BA trade. Poured a medium density dark black with a smaller foamy light beige head that quickly disapates. Aroma is sweet coconut, medium toast, chocolate malts, light roast and a hint of creamy butter. Body is medium at best with light carbonation that comds alive on the end of the swallow. Flavor mimics the aroma but more roasty with burnt toast and dark chocolate. Solid beer.

jbruner (4212) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - FEB 1, 2016
Pours a deep brownish black from he bottle with fluffy tan head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of big chocolate and coconut notes, but not a whole lot else. Taste follows, huge coconut and chocolate notes with a hint of porter base behind it. Soft carbonation, medium body, delicious dessert beer.
