DATE: November 19, 2017... OCCASION: just celebrated Shan's birthday at the Tap House... GLASSWARE: Guinness retro pint... pours a jet-black body that crackles with bubbles around the glass... its head is off-white, almost oatmeal in color, with various-sized bubbles that are spotty and blotchy... heavy coconut couples with some rum-like accents to produce an approximation of suntan lotion... some dairy-like lactics suggest potential sweetness, while light perfume fragrances create an enjoyable sense... first sip is lively, impressing itself at the throat with a flourish, while the presence at the teeth is passive... easy-drinking for a medium-bodied beer... besides its resounding coconut, some chocolate, half and half cream sweetness, soft toasted malts, and a marshmallow-esque fluffiness... I find this one intriguing, and among a case of stouts, this is a fun start... kambei70 (1135) - - OCT 22, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 22, 2017 Dark brown/black with a quickly dissipating khaki head. Pleasant light mocha coffee aroma with a little coconut and vanilla. Coffee and mocha follow through to the taste, as well as a bit of coconut. A little oak. Barely any bitterness. Thin and dry. Brettsky06 (536) - Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 22, 2017
Pours black with some tan head. Aroma is really nice with vanilla and coconut. Taste has some coconut and a hint of chocolate but not overly exciting northropfrye (3731) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 11, 2017
Dark body white head. A lot of coconut on the aroma which is okay but not my favourite additive to a stout. Over all not bad though. cards04 (2943) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 9, 2017
Pours a thin black. Nice big coconut and vanilla aromas. That’s where the praise ends though. Flavours fall flat. A bit of coconut and roast, but very thin and watery. Too bad.

bottle shared now if this was suppose to have coconut in it I either didn’t get enough of a sample or just simply missed it. a very mild stout though. mild body with some chocolate and roasted malts and that was about all I got out of it. very drinkable ljthiessen (1507) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 29, 2016
Bottle, fairly fresh, from the stout pack. Black pour with a small creamy tan head. Aroma is rich chocolate, vanilla and subtle coconut. Medium bodied. A lot of flavour for the ABV, a little sweetness, some cocoa and roasty bitterness, coconut comes in pretty subtle, some vanilla in the finish. Pretty nice.

12 oz bottle from the sampler case. Started off really well with a very interesting nose of tar and dark maters left better unknown. A bit disappointing and bitter toward the end of the bottle.. BlackBeerPG (981) - Darien, Illinois, USA - DEC 5, 2016
Taste: a mellow smokey , nutty malt with semi sweet toasted coconut extract flavor. The same for the nose. Black/Brown, mostly opaque, tan head that dissipates quick. Medium body, leaning toward lite body. A Dessert ale. 36 IBUs jandd1983 (4680) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - DEC 2, 2016
On tap at Shamrock’s. It poured a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma was of malts, chocolate and coconut. The taste was similar to the aroma with more malts, chocolate and subtle coconut. This was surprising, wasn’t expecting a decent brew like this. Pretty tasty.
