Bottle from Greenslopes Cellars 090916. This is a really good beer from our friends across the ditch. Thin dark brown almost black colour with a moderate head and a great aroma of chovoalte and cocount. While the beer may be thin bodied in the mouth it is big on flavour with a sweet bitter finish.

[8403-20160530] Tap. Roasted coconutty grains aroma. Slightly hazy, cola black-red body with a quick foamy mocha head. Roasted burnt toast grains and toasted coconut flavour has a long boozy aftertaste. Full body. Interesting. (7/3/7/3/15) 3.5

2016-05-30. Very dark brown body with a small tan head. Aroma of toasted coconut and very lightly roasty malt over sweet malt base. Flavour leans toward sweet, toasted coconut, notes of not quite nutty malt and molasses. Whisper of vanilla. Average bodied palate, soft carbonation suits it. 3+ Pretty nice, subtle. 7/3/7/3/14+ On tap at Little Beer Quarter, Wellington, NZ.

From a bottle. The coconut is not over the top, the roasted flavours set it off well, delicious beer.
