Pours a dark brown with a foamy off-white head. Aroma is coconut, vanilla, toffee, and caramel. Flavor is coconut, vanilla, caramel, and some roast notes. The coconut almost gives a bourbon character. Softly carbonated with a light body. Very good!

16 ounce can into pint glass, canned on 2/9/2017. Pours crystal clear very dark brown color with a 1-2 finger dense and fluffy khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big milk chocolate, toasted coconut, vanilla, caramel, cream, brown sugar, cocoa, and brown bread; with light toffee, coffee, dark fruit, and roast/toasted earthiness. Damn nice nice aromas with great balance and complexity of dark/roast/bready malt, coconut, vanilla, and lactose notes; with great strength. Taste of big milk chocolate, toasted coconut, vanilla, caramel, cream, brown sugar, cocoa, and brown bread; with light toffee, coffee, dark fruit, and roast/toasted earthiness. Slight herbal/roast bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of milk chocolate, toasted coconut, vanilla, caramel, cream, brown sugar, cocoa, brown bread, light toffee/coffee, and roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt, coconut, vanilla, and lactose flavors; with zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Minimal dryness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, creamy/silky/velvety, and slightly sticky/chalky mouthfeel that is fantastic. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 6%. Overall this is an awesome coconut milk stout! All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt, coconut, vanilla, and lactose flavors; very smooth and easy to drink. Nicely rich with an awesome mouthfeel for the modest ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.
