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.

750ml bottle via trade. pours a dark brown and sits almost black in the glass capped by a rich, creamy, mocha head that leaves sticky rings of lace. aroma is great with notes of coconut milk, almonds, nutella spread, and mocha coffee backed by milk chocolate, roast, vanilla, and hints of licorice. flavor is delicious with rich milk chocolate, roasted malts, mocha coffee, and freshly toasted coconut backed by subtle notes of maple syrup and freshly backed macaroon cookies. palate is full bodied and smooth with light carbonation and sweet finish of coconut and dark chocolate. overall, a mounds bar in a glass. really tasty beer.

tmoreau (4644) - 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.

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.
