2/7/12 notes: Bottle. Pours light brown, clear, nice white structured head. Aroma is sweet, condensed milk, coconut flesh, powdered sugar. Mouthfeel is creamy and smooth, not too heavy. Flavor coats with sweetness, tempered slightly by some toasted coconut and baked cookies. Sweetness is a bit heavy handed and uncomplicated, but flavor is strong.

Clear reddish brown color with minimal head and lacing. It has a faint aroma that reminds me of a mounds bar. Typical malt feel of a sweeter brown with coconut becoming present on the back of the palate. This beer would probably hold true in almost any type of weather.

Poured from bottle. Aroma of tanning oil and smoke. Clear mahogany, tan head. I get coconut, cream soda, smoke (perhaps from burning coconut shells), maybe a touch of bourbon. Slightly sticky. Enjoyable, not something I will crave in the future. mar (5416) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 1, 2012
Nice brown/deep amber with a cream head. Nose is chocolate, coconut, rich malts, and vanilla. Great on the palate, flavor is vanilla, coconut, heavy malts, chocolate, and a great finish. fiveacestx (970) - Texas, USA - FEB 29, 2012
Bottle - deep dark (but still translucent) brown with a nice beige head. Has an aroma and taste of roasted malts. It does have a hint of coconut on the palate. Average body and medium mouthfeel. Nice brew and I wouldn’t turn down another one.

Pour on tap was hazy brown with thin off white head, aroma was a bit nondescript but had notes of some caramel, and nutty flavors mixing in with a hint of coconut, some hints of char in there as well. Taste, however, is a very nice mix of sweet coconute with the sweet caramel and nutty flavors, hints of bitter earth that ends a bit sweet, pretty nicely done! icehawk (834) - Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, USA - FEB 27, 2012
Aroma is roasted nuts. Taste is slightly sweet with the coconut coming on fairly strong through the aftertaste. Light and almost fizzy mouthfeel. Good, easy to drink bear. Really enjoyable. drowland (8758) - Georgia, USA - FEB 27, 2012
2/27/12. 12oz bottle. Clear almost reddish pour with a small tan head that’s gone fast and laces a bit. Sweet chocolate aroma with touches of nuttiness and coconut. Sweet chocolate flavor with even more nuttiness and lingering coconut. Not bad, but I’d hope for more and fresher coconut. HonusWagner (2168) - Florida, USA - FEB 27, 2012
UPDATED: APR 15, 2013 A good, creamy brown ale with some milky coconut chocolate taste to it. Really solid, wish I had bought more.
2013: I feel like the beer is a decent amount worse than last year’s version, not nearly as much coconut. Kind of generic tasting, which isn’t bad, but not great either. BeerBoxer (232) - Sacramento, USA - FEB 25, 2012
Pours a light cola color with a creamy off white head. Aroma is coconut and barley. Flavor screams malt balls and coconut .
