Holy shit does this beer smell amazing, like some kind of godly coconut cream coffee pie in liquid form waiting to smash down my face. Really just impressive stuff, though the taste suffers a bit from being too samey, not having a lot of unique qualities and being sort of tiresome after the first glass. On draft at Hunahpu day, an excellent selection to represent this fantastic brewer.
Bottle thanks to Woodchopper on BA. Dark black pour, thick head and an aroma of coconut and chocolate. Flavor is also heavy creamy coconut, hints of coffee and chocolate throughout. Solid and perfectly balanced beer. Well done. fiulijn (21399) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 22, 2017
Tasting at Matt's mcberko (19173) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 22, 2017
Black color. Huge roasted coconut aroma, chocolate, tobacco; lovely. Soft mouthfeel, chocolate flavor explosion, roasted coconut. This is just great.
22 oz. bottle, pours black with a small tan head. Nose is loaded with a shitload of coconut upfront, followed by a hint of coconut and white chocolate. Flavour is like a baked dessert, with heaps of coconut upfront, followed by white chocolate and a hint of coffee. So coconut-y. Lovely.

Incredible aroma and great tasting beer! Hoping Constellation doesn’t try to fix what isn’t broken and supplements and builds on what FB is already doing like they did with Ballast Point. ExpendableHero (932) - Florida, USA - NOV 10, 2017
This was a knock-out. Very dark brown beer with an off-white head. Strong aromas of toasted coconut. Tastes like a liquid Almond Joy. Flavors of milk chocolate, some watery coffee, hints of vanilla and subtle caramel, with a nice coconut shaving flavor. Sweet and toasted coconut finish. Delectable, one to truly enjoy. One of the best beers I have had in a while. I cannot recommend this one enough.

UPDATED: NOV 3, 2017 Holy cow Cork and Stogie are ruining me. Black with almost no head. Coconut juice, a hint of alcohol and coffee with some tartness. Coffee beans, cocoa and vanilla. Very smooth and surprisingly light body. A very nice beer. k0mpsa (3111) - Tuusula, FINLAND - OCT 28, 2017

22oz bottle. No code date, but 2017 release. Appearance: Jet black, opaque, with light khaki colored head. smaynard6000 (1248) - Apopka, Florida, USA - OCT 16, 2017
Aroma: Toasted, roasted coffee is strong, followed by a distinct coconut that provides a cream like contrast to the rich roastiness
Taste: Really rich malt sweetness, with a touch of caramel, nuts, and bread crust, but dominated by a robust coffee roast, followed by notes of vanilla, cream, and strong coconut. Moderate bitterness just enough to counter the strong maltiness
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a light carbonation. A touch of slickness on the tongue with only the slightest hint of alcohol heat.
Finish: Coffee roast is strong after the swallow, with a touch of bitterness as well. Some caramel, nutty maltiness shows up retronasally
Overall: Quite a unique beer, putting the rich coffee roast up against coconut to provide complexity, contrast, and balance. Malt character is complex, working in some nuttiness and bread crust with the coffee as well. Medium body and restrained alcohol make this surprisingly easy to drink for a beer with deep malt complexity and roast. Can't really say this fits within an existing style, but a pretty damn good beer regardless
Bottle. Pours black with small brown head. Aroma is strongly coconut. Somewhat sweet with strong coconut presence with coffee and a bit of chocolate malt. Full bodied. Very good. Jow (4121) - Orlando, Florida, USA - OCT 12, 2017
Bottle at temp apt for Thursday night football bought for hypes sake. Fine dark pour. Nose dark chocolate and coconut. Tastes of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, coconut but not in sickening way as I often find coconut can be, some booze. Nice palate. But still the coconut proved a bit much for me probably prefer just the straight base porter if that available.
