Bottle @ DLD. Sweet boozy bourbon, coconut, and vanilla aroma. Viscous Black with a small tan head. Roasty coffee, creamy chocolate, and coconut flavor. Smooth creamy full body, moderate carbonation. The guys who shared it with me said the coconut had faded some since it’s release, but I thought the coconut still came through nicely. lachrymalisis (441) - Washington, USA - JAN 3, 2014
Why do people think this acetone-smelling sugar bomb is good? smells of nailpolish remover, astringent oak, and overbearing raw alcohol. tastes of chocolate milkshakes with bourbon and coconut. big surprise...boring fucking beer. NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 14, 2013
Cask at DotLA. Pours black, thin dark brown head, opaque. Nose is moderately sweet with a distinct ethanol component. Vanilla and toast, coconut comes through a bit late. Rich with some molasses notes and Mounds bar. On tasting, big bodied with a moderate sweetness. Toasted coconut is really nice and surprised that this hasn’t happened before. A touch hot overall but really neat. I like it. TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAR 3, 2013

Cask, pours black small tan head. Aroma big fresh toasted coconut. Fudgy chocolate. Flavors slick roasted coffee and big coconut notes, mild spicy finish between the rye and booze. I’d love to see this bottled.
