Pub Brew. Joyous Almondo is equal parts chocolate, coconut, and almonds, to create a brown ale delicacy unlike any other. Sweet aromas of chocolate and coconut emit from this brew. The first sip leads toward a perfect fusion of flavor, as chocolate and coconut embrace the toasted almond qualities. Pleasant almond flavors remain well into a finish, which is not too sweet, bitter or dry.

shrubber85 (10932) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAR 28, 2013
Draft. Chocolate, coconut, and nut aroma. Amber with minimal head. Very sweet (not quite cloying but close) chocolate coconut and almond flavor. with alcoholic finish. Very nicely blended. Like eating an Almond Joy and chasing it with a bit of vodka.

daknole (10919) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 15, 2011
Cloudy light brownish pour. Aroma is, well, not good. Funky, sweetish, weird coconut/plastic. Flavor? Damn its just as bad. I didnt this beer at all. Totally confused to be honest. What on earth is going on?

j12601 (9790) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAR 17, 2011
On tap at Sunset for their Shorts event prior to EBF. Pours a hazy caramel brown. Smells a bit like an almond joy, with coconut and nuts, toast and cocoa. Chewy roast and cocoa, malt. Decent enough, but nothing overly special. Long sweetness on the finish.

arminjewell (9423) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - OCT 22, 2011
On tap pour was clear reddish orange with white head, aroma was big, almost artificial almond notes with some sweet biscuity, toffee, notes as well. Taste was lots of almond, sweet fruity and caramel notes finishing very sweet. While the resemblance to almonds was pretty cool, it was a bit much and a bit too sweet.

GABF 2011. Murky rusty brown, no head. Beautiful aroma of nutty almond, slight boozy alcohol, and a mild chocolatey tone. Flavor is nutty almond, light chocolate, and warm sweet alcohol. Big body with a long linger, with a good dose of toffee, just a little burnt and a little too boozy.

Draft at EBF. Getting towards the end of session #1 here... I feel like this beer was polarizing. I enjoyed the chocolate and coconut, with nutty tones. Others weren’t as pleased.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAY 9, 2011
Draft at EBF. Pours an amber bruin body with a white head. Hints of licorice, sweet coconut sugar tones. light birch and wood with a creamy sweetness. Kinda delivers what they were going for.

@ GABF. Rusty copper. A bit muddled but has a decent cap. Aroma is not as good as expected. Almond skins, toasted, but none of the pleasant almond extract/essence/marzipan I would hope for in the aromas. the flavors end up being too sweet, though, and it has a syrupy palate. Toasted almond and toasted coconut emerge late, giving a macaroon quality. Weird and gimmicky but a nice try and it grows on me.
