Draft at Cellarmaker, pours black with a tan head. Aroma is big coconut, barrel notes, roast. Flavor is medium sweet, somewhat boozy, to be expected. Good coconut flavor. Full bodied, hot but not terrible to drink. b3shine (9331) - Indiana, USA - DEC 28, 2017
1L swingtop to snifter, filled on 12/19/17 and shared with the Mrs (thanks Brad). This batch is 13.5% abv. Looks good; an opaque black with bubbly mocha head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells of dark malt, dark chocolate, oak, and coconut. Tastes like it smells with a pleasantly bitter medium full-bodied mouthfeel that mildly warming but dangerously drinkable. Smooth and delicious.

Sample at the tap room. Inky black color with a medium thick tan head that diminishes gradually to a film. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of roasted malt, oak, coconut and chocolate. Full-bodied with flavors of toasted coconut, chocolate malt, oak and anise. The finish is boozy with a coconut and chocolate aftertaste. Good beer overall.
