COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cacaonut is a special treat. A rare and secret blend of several different barrel aged beers that we’ve pulled from our cellar along with toasted coconut and cacao nibs from San Francisco’s TCHO.

The inspiration for this beer were the unique flavors of a chocolate dipped coconut macaroon. After polishing off a few of those dense, sweet and delicious, coconut treats, Patrick started thinking through the flavor profiles of some of our favorite barrel aged beers, deciphering a way to replicate the luscious qualities of that favorite treat. Spice, rich toffee, cocoa and tropical notes blend deliciously and delicately in this newest barrel aged addition to our collection.

UPDATED: MAR 27, 2014 December 6, 2013 - bottle shared by Brandon. Brownish orange pour with limited head. Aroma was fruity, chocolate, wood and slight coconut. There was also some sourness in there that seemed a bit odd. Taste was oak and alcohol upfront, but then sourness completely takes over. I think this was an effected bottle. Too bad, I was really excited about this.

March 22, 2014 - on tap at Bruery tasting room. Muddy brown pour with limited head. Aroma was nice cocoa, bourbon and mild coconut. Taste was consistent with aroma, nicely balanced and easy to drink for a high alcohol beer. Glad I tried this again.

15 oct 2013, tap at the Bruery. Brown, faintly murky. Nose is just like a macaroon. The coconut is more a contribution than an actual aroma milk chocolate is tamed by sugary macaroon filling. Med body and lightly fizzy. Sugary malt but more nutty and slightly tart. I hoped for more by the nose but it was still very good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On draft at the brewery. Murky reddish brown pour, with a thin head. Very sweet and sugary, vanilla, chocolate, definitely some toasted coconut, booze, and dense chewy malt. It’s too bad the bottles were infected, this beer is a pretty good dessert in small portion.

A- pours a hazy opaque brown with a weak dirty white head that quickly disappears. No lacing. S- BOOZE, strong macaroon, sugar, browned butter, vanilla, pecans, some cacao and a hint of German Chocolate cake. M- medium body with a medium sweet and sour palate. Mediocre carbonation. T- overwhelming alcohol, vanilla and sour lemon juice at first. Middle welcomes cacao, butter, nuttiness, coconut, bourbon and some oak qualities. Ending settles efficiently. Mostly remnants of alcohol, macaroon, more butter and bitter grasses.

Bottle from The Bruery poured into a snifter a dark cloudy brown with a tan/white head that quickly dissipates.
Aroma of straight up barrel aged boozy with a bit of sourness?
Flavor is chocolate coconut with a heavy barrel aged flavor. Heavy booze tells me to age this puppy. The sourness tells me maybe oude tart or tart of darkness is here. LOVE.
Happy to have another 2 bottles to lay down & crack open down the road. This brew needs a little age but presently its nothing to shy away from...
