COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fantastic Voyage is a harmonic melange of coconut and Imperial Milk Stout brought to us by brewer Jim Leabig. Loads of coconut, lactose and black malt balance each other to provide flavors reminiscent of chocolate covered coconut with a finish smooth like silk sheets. Best enjoyed while listening to slow jams by candlelight.

Bottle. Silky mouthfeel. I am missing any evidence of coconut. A great silky smooth flavor like a milk stout. Pretty tasty.

Pitch black coloured body with a oily, two centimetre tall brown head and a completely opaque black glow. Aroma of rich roasted malt, alcohol, coconut, pandanus (used to make kaya), taro and hints of spices - perhaps some curry and kaffir lime? Full-bodied; Rich roasty malt at first then gives way immediately to sweetness from the coconut and pandan flavours, a touch of acid comes from limes and all blends well with some spices such as anise and fennel seed. Aftertaste is nice and robust with a great blend of spices, savoury, sweet and milky - very nice and well done, all with some alcohol, but not too much. Overall, I pretty much expected a beer like this, but with the reviews as low as they were, I didn’t think I’d get this - but this is a great beer, it’s that simple. The flavour profile is there, the complexity is great and the range in tastes from the initial taste to the last bit on the tongue at the end is amazing. Definitely worth trying if you can find this - even if you have to bring it back a few hundred miles! I sampled this 75 cL bottle purchased from Binny’s (South Loop) in Chicago, Illinois on 21-August-2013 for US$15.99 sampled at home in Washington on 08-January-2014 after a chilly night.

This one poured a still medium to dark brown with a beige head. Aroma was of of soy, ketchup, vinegar, and wocestershire sauce. Flavor was similar, definitely sour and or infected. Just not good at all.

Pours a deep brownish black with a slight brown head. Aroma of vinegar. Taste is tart like it was infected. What a disappointment. No coconut at all.

Bottle shared thanks to artmcd8. Poured black with decent tan head. Not the best aroma of sweet soy. Med carb med bod. Funky sour taste.

baraciisch (3398) - 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... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Theydon_Bois (20890) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2013
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
