This one poured a murky medium brown color with a beige head. Aroma was of toast, caramel, nuts and brown sugar. Flavor was similar, definitely seems more like an imperial brown, lots of flvor here for 6% j12601 (11571) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JAN 13, 2014

Pretty damn cool beer from this up-and-comer. Big, bold, roiling dark brown pour with a buoyant, sticky head. Nose is really pretty inviting, with deep chocolate and caramel malts, dry hops to bring out the abundant coconut, and damn if it isn’t pretty close to the inspiration. On a chilly evening, the warming malts and deep rich flavors went down quite nicely. Slight nutty notes suggest fruitbread here and there. But this well realized brown benefits well from the sweet additions and satisfies without being gimicky. thirdeye11 (6160) - Dallas, Texas, USA - FEB 17, 2013
(22oz bomber) clear ruby amber with a ring of fine tan bubbles. Nose of coconut, nuts, toasty grain and graham cracker.
