COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The coconut is an interesting little drupe. It’s origins, still up for debate, range from the Melanesia-India-Australian region to that of South America. A hardy fruit, the coconut has many uses in many of its different forms. From fibers pulled from its husks, to those briny coconut water drinks replacing nostalgia with adult juice boxes, to the aptly named “millionaires salad’ derived from eating the heart of the palm itself–the coconut is an embodiment of the concept of Kalpavriksha. Today we’ll focus on the Copra, the flesh of the coconut. Why? Because 30 lbs. of coconut copra was added to Dangerous Man’s Milk Stout. Yeah, Almond Joy has nothing on us. Toasted coconut copra lounging about. The coconut copra was lightly toasted leaving the milky-white speckled khaki and raw umber. Toasting the coconut helps to dry out the oily flesh and to enhance the coconut aroma we’ve all come to know and expect. Added to fermentor, the coconut copra has been lending the stout its flavor during fermentation. When yeast is added to hop-filled wort, a myriad of strange and fascinating process occur that give you the finished beer. This toasted coconut copra has joined the fray and will bring you a milk stout like no other.

10floz draft served in a medium sized snifter. Basically black in appearance with a ring of foam. Nose has a husky, roasted malt aroma. The palate is a heavy medium and somewhat robust. Mostly straight forward dark roast flavor with faint coconut upon the follow through.

Tap at the source with blonderedhead. 10 oz pour. Coffee black in color with tan head. Nose is roasty and malty with coffee and chocolate notes. Spectacular aroma. Taste is predominantly roasted malts with a coffee like bitterness offset by the coconut sugary sweetness. Alcohol makes its presence felt a little bit but not at the expense of the quality of flavor. Almost a slight dark fruit characteristic that gives way to a dark chocolate finish. Very delicious. I would put it a notch above the standard chocolate milk stout. Dangerous Man delivers yet again.

Flavors is medium sweet, very light bitter, loads of coconut, milk chocolate, mounds bar, roasted malt, hints of marshmallow. Medium body, silky mouthfeel. Solid adjunct Stout for sure.

Crowler of this one - coconut was subtle but there, good but I like the regular CMS better.

dinkle50 (1527) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 1, 2016
Black pour with a single finger tan colored head. Lace present. Aroma is light, hints of chocolate, marshmallow. Full bodied, silky smooth. Taste is full of coconut, but does not taste artificial. Kind of like chocolate milk with toasted coconut added. One of the tastiest coconut beers I’ve had.
