Dark reddish brown beer with a thin quickly dissipating light tan head. Sweet nose of toasted coconut, caramel, and vanilla. Flavor is (thankfully) semi-sweet with coconut, cocoa, and toffee finished with a smoky bitterness that lingers and counterbalances the sweeter flavors. Good beer and the coconut flavor, although pronounced, works here. dfearnley (2141) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 15, 2017
Molasses, cocoa, toasted malt, oat, light coffee, leather and anise aromas. Tastes like a Bounty or Mounds chocolate bar with some oats. It pours a deep brown with a thin and creamy tan head. nearbeer (5419) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 26, 2017
12 oz. bottled 12/22/2016. Clear brown cola color with a film of espresso-like foam. Nose is cocoa, toasted coconut and caramel. Flavors of caramel, toasted coconut, toasted nut and dark chocolate. Finish has some chalky dry cocoa and pithy wood notes. Near-medium body has a drinkable balance for a dessert slanted brown. Medium, mostly smooth carbonation. jjgmd (2162) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - APR 13, 2017
Bottle. Pours a dark bark brown with a beige head. Nose is malt with some sweet vanilla. Taste is much better than the nose, with a rich sweet vanilla malt and sweet cocoa , coconut and mocha. Drinks rather easily with all of the flavors coming together into the finish . Quaff Score 7 / 10 ROGUE (2215) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - APR 10, 2017
12oz bottle. Pours a dark brown color with a one finger tan head that quickly dissipates. Big coconut aromas upfront, along with chocolate and toasted malts. Taste is toasted malt flavor with coconut that is lighter than expected given the smell, along with subtle chocolate and vanilla undertones. Medium bodied, good carbonation.

Appearance: clear brown with one finger of dense creamy beige head, good retention and patchy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: chocolate syrup, coconut, vanilla, caramel, dark fruit, grass. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (8/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, dry slightly sticky mildly bitter finish. (4/5)
Well, it might be a dirty little freak, but it’s my kind of dirty little freak. Rich chocolate and coconut aromas, but not excessively sweet at all, and in fact it finishes nicely dry. Even-handed on both the sweet and the bitter, with a hint of hops on the back end, making for a nicely balanced beer. Completely different than my usual preference of highly-hopped, highly-attenuated pales, but damn if I don’t like this a whole bunch. Actually, it’s pretty similar to their Sweet Baby Jesus! except with coconut instead of peanut butter - and I like coconut more than peanut butter. I might be just a touch high on my rating here simply because it’s playing so very much to my personal taste, but not by a lot. Solid and recommended. (16/20)

Nose is like a coconut cabdy bar. Light toast and a ton of coconoot. Fleshy smell smell. Amazing mighty vanilla. Dark brown to black. Minimal head. Taste is vanilla forward with slot of fleshy fruits. A lot of coconut with some toast and crust. rand (1700) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 5, 2017
Bottle 12 fl.oz / Drinks of the World - Bern (CH). Brown well descrived on the label. It actually has aromas and flavors of roasted malt, coconut especially, chocolate, vanilla and cocoa butter. Hop is well present but in final, there is a dryness that contrasts with the taste. beern (104) - Alabama, USA - MAR 4, 2017
Pours dark, translucent amber brown with a tan head and an aroma of sweet caramel, chocolate malt. Tastes of malt and cocoa with a mild hop finish and a hint of vanilla bean & coconut. Light body. JBell14 (99) - Chelmsford, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 3, 2017
Got this a while back in a trade from Nimbleprop. Bottle dated 11/29/16.
Pours dark as expected with limited head. Chocolate aroma and taste with a hint of coconut. Medium body. As with most browns taste is optimal when served at the right temp. Don’t drink it right out of the fridge let it warm up a little.
