This was from a bottle at am esbls gathering/ Poured basically black with tan foam. The nose is a big blend of chocolate and coconut. Full in body with a creamy mouth feel. Flavor is big, with the chocolate and coconut ij profusion and a finish that adds the whiskey. This is a decadent beer, with powerful flavors, nice drinking, and hides the alcohol really well. Really nice.

interesting stout. spicy from the rye and some chocolate in there as well. aroma of chocolate and some coconut. i like this because the coconut is very faint, just adding some slight flavor. pours dark brown, almost black. had at WOB in evanston.

Bottle. It poured a brown color with a tan head. The aroma was of chocolate, coconut and whiskey. The taste was similar to the aroma with more chocolate, coconut, whiskey and roastiness. Very good.

Poured from a bomber into a snifter glass darkest brown with a beige head that dissipated quickly. Aroma is coconut, sweet caramel, cocoa. Flavor reminds me of a Mounds candy bar with a chaser of rye whiskey. Totally beautiful blend to the palate. Wished I had picked up another bottle cuz this baby is gonna go down fast...screw savoring this baby!!

Poured from a bomber into a snifter. Aroma is milk chocolate and coconut. Appearance is a clear dark brown of which light does pass through it. Taste is of dark chocolate and coconut. Coconut is the key here. Palate is good ... nice carbonation. A really good beer worth going after and one I?d want to enjoy again. Cheers!

Poured from a bottle. Aroma is fairly coconut forward with a roasted coconut character that adds some nuttiness. Light chocolate notes and hints of roast. Light whiskey character. Pours a dark brown with a medium sized, moderately thick, tan head that slowly but steadily recedes. Moderate lacing and medium sized legs. Flavor is slightly sweet with a strong coconut character. Some roasted coconut with coconut meat. Light chocolate and medium light nuttiness. Some medium light roast adds some unfortunate astringency. Medium bitterness. Light whiskey and oak notes. Fairly dry finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Medium astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a nice beer but the roasted coconut adds too much astringency. The rye whiskey and oak notes are fairly light. A nice, dry finish with a bit of roast and chocolate.

Draft at Bigelos. Black and what a nice aroma! Chocolate and coconut. Those are tasted throughout. Some vanilla, earth, and darker fruit. So rich and really good.

The beer pours black with a small off-white head. The aroma blends roasted malts, milk chocolate, coconut, and vanilla, and the taste is mildly sweet, slightly bitter, and mildly umami with an aftertaste reminiscent of a chocolate coated coconut ice cream bar. There?s quite a lot of raw, shredded coconut, but it?s not a bad thing because it balances out the chocolatey bitterness. The palate fuses an oily texture, soft carbonation, and a medium-full body.
