Sample thanks to Derek and Klimaet. Pours a pitch black with no head. Lots of coconut chunks though. Aroma has toffee, coconut, caramel, bourbon, apple brandy, dark fat chocolate, light coffee. Taste is sweet but balanced, subtle nice booze, cognac fruity and just a ton of caramel. Sticky body and almost no carb. Werckmeister (3285) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - MAY 13, 2017

This is actually for the black label but they’re the exact same beer. Pours black with light carbonation and actually coconut floaters. Nose was shockingly different after all the Derivations -- wild spices, coconut, something that seemed "peppery", with a unique malt and just awesome general tropical kiss. Mouth is stronger with fresh coffee beans, roasted malt/coffee, lots of coconut, great barrel touches. A crazy beer, totally different than the Derivation series and in my book hands down superior.

Bottle split on day 1 of Coconut/Cinnamon Death 2017. White label. Pours pitch black with small brown head. Aromas of huge coconut and milk chocolate. Fat cocoa nibs, vanilla, fudge, light roasted coffee, toast. Taste is just a coconut, vanilla and coffee bomb. Huge maple aswell. Roasted coffee, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, fudge with a dry cocoa finish. God damn. GlasgowTAD (1874) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - APR 13, 2017
White label bottle. Pours opaque lack with no head. Aroma is coconut, cinnamon spice, chocolate cake mix. Taste is coffee sweet, hint of coffee bitter, maple syrup sweet, little bit of roasty coffee, milk chocolate sweet, fudgey. Thick bodied with a full mouthfeel. Overall very well rounded and difficult to put into words short of writing a novel with the aid of a thesaurus. ctipping (2201) - Florida, USA - MAR 20, 2017
Bottle. Black and mukry with coconut chunks floating in it. Smells boozy, sweet. chocolatey. Lots of coconut. Some coffee and a little bit of brandy, I think. Tastes very sweet. Strong adjuncts of all sorts: chocolate, coffee, coconut. Heavy alcohol flavor. Nutty malts. Astringent finish. Big, sweet, and boozy. I’d like to say you can’t drink much more than a taster of this, but its availability precludes that already. koleminer20 (3840) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAR 16, 2017
From notes. Enjoyed a pour from a 750 mL plain white labeled bottle (no text) at Hunahpu’s Day 2017 on March 11. The pour is a thick and heavy black with a thin ring of brown head and no lace as it vanishes. The aroma is just amazing. There is a thick chocolate and vanilla fudge with a heavy coffee that slowly transitions into a light roast. The coconut really comes through on the back end with just a hint of maple sweetness and a lovely brandy addition without any of the alcohol. You would never know this is a 17% monster. The flavors are just as good. The thick fudginess right up front. The chocolate and vanilla working heavily as it moves through coconut flesh and coffee into the maple and a light oaky brandy on the finish. This is so balanced and intense it’s unbelievable. The mouth feel is like molasses. It’s thick as fuck and a soft carbonation just let this coat your mouth and almost like they don’t want to leave. The aftertaste is mapley, fudgy, coffee-forward, with lots of vanilla and coconut. This is just a damn beautiful thing!
