3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle picked up at the taproom. Pours an inky black with a relatively modest tan head. Nose of chocolate, with notes of both sweet milk chocolate and dark chocolate present. Nutty hints as well as some prune and light toasted coconut. More of the latter on the taste, but really married with the chocolate such that there’s never a distinct coconut flavor. Sweet, but a bit of sharp near-bitterness as well. Big beer.
Bottle. Black pour with tan head. Coconut, roasted, chocolate and sweet aromas. Vanilla, chocolate, and almost fake coconut Flavors. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAR 1, 2016

Dark brown to black pour with a tan head. The aroma has some nice chocolate, coconut and roasted malt. The flavor is similar. The chocolate and roasted malt notes go very well with the coconut, brown sugar and boozy character. Medium carbonation and thick mouthfeel.

Dark black. No head. Lots of sweet coconut, but like coconut sugar, not like coconut pie. Kind of creamy. Very smooth. Nice amount of chocolate cutting through. Thx Carter. SudsMcDuff (8428) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - APR 24, 2015

Pour on tap, dark brownish pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of cocoa, roast, coffee into a bit of soy sauce, booze, touch of acidic malt, slight smoky ash as well. Taste was a mix of ash, cocoa, roast into some anise,soy sauce, finishing sweet, slightly acidic. wedgie9 (2702) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 2, 2015
Tasted in July 2013 from a capped 750mL bottle that Adam and I picked up during a baseball trip in St. Louis. Pours black with an average brown head that leaves average lace. The nose is super roasty with dark chocolate, coffee, and a bit of a soy sauce note. The flavor is sweet coconut up front with some milk chocolate, roast, and a soy sauce note suggesting oxidation or infection. The body is full with average carbonation and a long, almost sour, sweet and roasted finish. Will try this one again if I get the chance. jdb288 (584) - Wake Forest, North Carolina, USA - NOV 24, 2014
Drain pour. Bottle had clearly turned and was only a few months old. Very sour cherry notes and no hint of coconut. Hopefully just a bad bottle. Will try again and will update the rating.
