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)
8/10 #ryansbooze ryansbooze.com
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 (1860) - 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 (221) - Alabama, USA - MAR 4, 2017

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.
Pours a dark brown color with a tan head. Aroma it’s dark fruits, and oak. Flavor is vanilla and oak up front. Finishes with some dark fruits and alcohol. craftbeersweden (707) - SWEDEN - FEB 6, 2017

2015 BJCP Category: 30A Spice/Herb/Vegetable Beer (base style: 19C American Brown Ale)
AROMA: Milk chocolate with faint coconut presence (both seem sweet and faux). No distinct malt or hop features. 8/12
APPEARANCE: Brown proper hue; dark but clear. Small tan foam. 3/3
FLAVOR: Milk chocolate throughout the first half and a coconut flavor as it finishes. I do not detect caramel per se, nor is there much in the way of specific malt character. Minor presence of earthy hops at the apex, though beer is not particularly bitter. Palette is rather mild overall (surprisingly so). 12/20
MOUTHFEEL: Medium-light body and carbonation. Feels much lighter than 5.8% ABV. A slight resiny aftertaste. 3/5
OVERALL IMPRESSION: Should be a winner considering the recipe, but it’s too mild for my liking. 6/10
TOTAL SCORE: 32/50
12 fl oz bottle. Clear ruby hued brown, mostly lasting tan foam. Aroma of milk chocolate and caramel malt. Taste is smooth and not too sweet, mostly cocoa and vanilla, light roasty malt, no coconut, no hop. Softer carbonation, medium bodied, low hopped. Delicious dessert beer. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)
