COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A bogie is not only the chassis or framework carrying the wheels of trains, it is also our Caribbean Imperial Porter. This porter is jammed with coconut flakes, dark rum and lovely sweet Madagascar Bourbon vanilla beans. We were told coconut doesn’t do well in beer, this is just a driver for us to put shit loads of it in anyways. This recipe was born in early 2015 as part of our "Project" line and made its debut at the Tilburg beer festival, it was love at first taste. This slightly modified recipe of the Coconut Bogie is the first LOC brew to be promoted from project to production.

Martinus (4763) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - OCT 31, 2016
Pitch black, tan head, big bubbles. Aroma of roasted malts, cacao, caramel and brown sugar. Bit sour CO2 note. Malty flavour, light vanilla, light coconut, caramel. Very fizzy. Finish bitter caramel, sweet note, vanilla, hint of liquorice. Nice, but a bit too fizzy, quite a lot of CO2 for my liking
(from 33cL bottle @ home)

GBBF Day 4. Keg. Opaque dark black - brown beer, tidy tan head. Palate is airy, semi dry and has modest fine carbonation. Mild minerals. Smooth dark malts. Touch of milky sweetness. Coconut? Pretty light! Modest dark fruits and dark chocolate. A little spice on the light finish. It’s tasty but given it’s description I wanted more from it.

Maakun (6951) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 1, 2016
Bottle at home. Black with a bit fizzy brown head. Quite some coffee and roasted malts, licorice, coconut, light grassy, soft mineral notes, molasses, maybe light rum and vanilla but it might be suggestion. Medium sweet and bitter. Bit over medium bodied with fizzy carbonation. Nice beer, but all the adjuncts are a bit too much in the background.
