4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml bottle poured to a Perennial Snifter:
Aroma: Alcohol, coconut, chocolate, vanilla, and caramel.
Appearance: A foamy, quickly dissipating mocha head, that leaves no lacing.
Taste: A medium sweetness.
Palate: The body is light for the style. Fizzy carbonation, a thin, slick texture, with creamy notes on the finish which is long. The mouthfeel is perhaps the most complex element of this beer.
Overall: This is my third time trying this, and have decided to review it finally. Being that it is my third time having it, obviously I would recommend it. I believe it’s a well done interesting take on a milk stout, introducing the coconut to it. Surprised I have not had coconut in more stouts. Another well done beer from Perennial.
Tap. Black color with a medium head. Sweet chocolate aroma. Flavor of sweet coconut, chocolate and a bit of coffee. Full bodied. Relatively sweet. tmoreau (4637) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - NOV 8, 2017
On tap at Ellyn's Tap & Grill in Glen Ellyn, IL. as a 5 oz. serving, displaying a black/brown hue, fluffy persistence to the light brownish tan layer of froth, with ribbons & spots of foamy lacing. The nose was roasted, woody & nutty, candy bar sweet, with chocolate & nougat, and toasted coconut. Medium to full bodied, with low carbonation, but a nice creaminess to the texture, the taste was like notes as the aroma, including decent alcohol presence, and roasted & earthy bitterness. Smooth and just sweet enough, in a pleasant, dessert-like manner. Ratman197 (15364) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - NOV 3, 2017

Draft at Craft Brewed. Pours a motor-oil colored, pitch black with a half a finger of foam that lingers. Dark cacao nib, coconut bars all over the nose....mounds bar. Candied, dried coconut flavor on the palate really stands out. Straight up tastes like a Mounds candy bar. Chewy coconut and cacao. Smooth and would go nice with dessert. Super well executed. vtafro (7444) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - JUN 21, 2016
