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.

This was a real treat. Heavy sweet chocolate aroma with toasted coconut in the background. Basically no carbonation in this beer, but it wasn't missed. The flavor reminded me of an Almond Joy candy bar. Excellent sweet chocolate and loads of toasted coconut. My girlfriend, who isn't a big beer drinker, said she'd drink it any day. Very sweet, very chocolatey, very smooth and creamy feel to the drink. Mostly coconut flavor stays on the palate, which sounds odd for a beer, but it was delicious. Highly recommended!

Nearly black pour at GABF. Loads of mounds bar in the nose and flavor. Hell this might as well be a candy bar with alcohol. Sweet, smooth and incredibly delicious.

Superb stout. Very chocolately and rich. Thick mouthfeel, creamy and dark. Not much in the way of apparent hops, a pure stout through and through.

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.
