Strong coconut aroma with hints of chocolate and caramel. Brown appearance with a tan head with below avg head retention. Flavor is big on coconut flavor. Coffee, chocolate and caramel notes are in the background. No hop flavor present. Balance is slightly towards the malt. Mouthfeel is medium with medium carbonation. No astringency is apparent from the roast grains. Overall it tastes like a malt flavored piña colada. A little too strong on the coconut. Not my cup of tea.

I love this beer!!! I love the name! Other people have noted tastes of vanilla and coconut. That may be true, since they are probably younger than me and have better taste buds. (Your taste buds go bye-bye when you get older.) Anywho, this beer tasted of roasted malt and chocolate. It was delicious and is now my favorite beer of the moment. It does seem more like a porter rather than a brown ale. I'm not sure what the difference is between the two, but I've never had a brown ale with a chocolate flavor. This beer is some good stuff! 47574xeCD (1340) - Coventry, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2017

2017-06-30. Very dark brown body, good size frothy tan head. Aroma has lightly earthy vanilla and cocoa character. Coconut escapes my definition at first but is obvious after reading the label. Flavour is interesting, sort of vanilla and cocoa, lightly toasty sweetish dark malt malt. Notes of coconut. 7+ Smooth average bodied palate, good carbonation. Tasty. 7/4/7/3/16 Bottle from Trackside Liquor, Medicine Hat, AB. floydslip (428) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 17, 2017
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 (2405) - 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 (5668) - 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 (2294) - 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
