Bottle courtesy of biggsbowler. Pours blackish dark brown with a fairly big frothy pale mocha head that leaves some thick lacing on the glass while dissiapting. Smell is malty and nutty with roasted malts, roasted coconut, dark roast coffee, dark chocolate, moist soil and bounty bar. Taste is sweet, slightly bitter, malty and nutty. Mouthfeel is soft, round, velvety and medium bodied. Finish is sweet and tiny bitter with roasted malts, dark chocolate bounty bar and moist soil. Love how it packs so much flavour while still being soft and drinkable. Very enjoyable. Candy beer, sure, but that’s some damn tasty candy. rlgk (18850) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 14, 2016

AROMA: Strong toasted coconut aroma. Smells authentic - not like suntan lotion. Coffee is a light/medium roast. Slight cinnamon. Sweet overall, but not faux or sickly. 11/12
APPEARANCE: Opaque black with faint red highlight. Small, dark tan foam. Some lacing. 2/3
FLAVOR: Sweet, milky/creamy flavor up front (not chocolate). Dark malt but no roast or burnt flavor. Coconut flavor emerges at the apex followed by coffee. Faint cinnamon or other spice in the aftertaste. Flavors all blend quite well. Palette has mellowed after six months, but still delicious and impressive. 17/20
MOUTHFEEL: Medium body with medium/low carbonation. Smooth texture; highly quaffable. No alcohol presence. 5/5
OVERALL IMPRESSION: When fresh, this is an arguably world class S/H/V beer. Even with some age it’s still excellent. 9/10
TOTAL SCORE: 44/50

&Friends. This was a total "holy shit"-moment! Coconut, chocolate, coffee. Super smooth, full of flavor! Was afraid it would be an artificial tone to it, but no such thing. Great!
