On tap at Capones 2013 Black Friday event. Black with a mocha creamy head, light bitterness, roasted malt, coffee grinds, alcohol, fresh coconut (mild). Moderate body and mild+ carbonation, some alcohol but smooth. baraciisch (3311) - California, USA - DEC 28, 2013
Deep black in color with light tannish head... Aroma of roasted malts, dark fruits, hint of sweetness... Flavor is intensely sweet, but also tart, like it's infected... Coconut is not prevalent, almost undrinkable... Haven't had a drain pour in a while, very disapponted...

Tap at Capones, Black Friday bash, Norristown PA 29/11/13.
Pitch black with a good sized tan covering that clears to a swirl then settles down for the show.
Nose is light roast, liqourice, dark toffee, burnt brown sugars, sweet notes.
Taste comprises light roast, chocoalte, coconut shavings but pretty subtle, dark toffee fudge, a fairly sweet number.
Medium bodied with bite, fine carbonation, sweet sugar infused closure.
Decent enough impy, thankfully not infected, a little sweet and cloying towards the end, alcohol a touch hot at times. SlovakSniper (5561) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 9, 2013
Embouteillée en avril 2014. Un stout brun et une mousse célèbre pour sa grande chute. Un nez lacté et suret avec des arômes timides de friandises chocolatées. Des saveurs qui révèlent une infection. Des olives et du vinaigre au-devant de notes chocolatées. Une bouche très mince et des bulles maladivement agitées. Une finale qui n’est pas celle d’un milk stout à la noix de coco. C’est toujours choquant lorsqu’on débouche une bouteille qui vaut la peau des fesses et qui finit par goûter le cul. Dommage.

750ml bottle pours a dark black with a large tan head. Roasted malt aroma. No coconut taste or aroma. Just tastes like a chocolate sweet stout

Black pour, light cream head. Nose is sweet, faintly tart, wood, and a hint of chocolate. Easy palate, tart, faint coconut, sweet and chocolate. burg326 (5569) - Florida, USA - NOV 2, 2013
22 ounce bottle poured a black color with aromas of sweet chocolate milk, and some light coconut. Flavors were milk chocolate, and coconut, light on the palate, nice mouthfeel, easy drinker with the abv listed. This is dangerously delicious. blipp (9502) - La Mesa, California, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Draft at Pony Bar. Looks like I’m not the only one to stumble on an infected batch of this stuff. Near black with a beige head. Light roasted malts, some odd tart fruitiness, balsamic, and faint dirty tartness in the finish. Not good. Lukaduke (3206) - Gray, Maine, USA - OCT 13, 2013
Infected. Nose is roasted chocolate, sour berry and composted earth. The palate follows and isn’t horrible.. in fact the flavor is more pleasant than a lot of sour blacks on the market but the beer is ringing as a tart fruity shadow of the big chocolate version it once was. The coconut and chocolate presence is there and gives a glimpse at just how good this beer could have been if not for the introduction of some pedio infection.
