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.

Bottle via booooost. Lots of cocoa and pineapple in the nose and flavor. A touch of alcohol burn. Not great. Not bad. Just good.

Murky deep amber beer, small cream colour head. Palate is airy, semi dry and crispy. Wow! Wasn’t expecting this beer to be so sourish! After the initial shock there is Flemish Red sourness and fruits, Bourbon fruits and tang. A nice sweet cooconut and a smooth bourbon finish. Unusual and when the palate gets over the initial shock, quite drinkable. Hides the huge abv quite well.

Opened 11/10/13. Pours murky reddish brown. Big oak on the nose with a hint of sweetness. Big and sweet and boozy on the palate. A touch of coconut sweetness and white chocolate. Enjoyable as a one time beer, but too sweet overall.

On tap at 10 East. Sweetness dominates both the aroma and the flavor. Vanilla, maple syrup, toasted coconut, bourbon and bread pudding found everywhere. Really tasty, super sweet and it packs a serious punch.

Bottle:   Deep caramel, thin off-white head, little lacing.   Tart coconut, tropical fruit, chocolate, and some slight bourbon on the nose.   Interesting combination to say the least.   Very tart on the tongue, nearing sour.   Lets just say sour right up front.   Immediately followed by coconut, chocolate malt, almonds, tropical fruit, with a lingering bourbon finish.   This is a weird one, but it works... somewhat.   Its like an Almond Joy bar on alcohol and Bourbon.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Sour finish, its like an Imperial Candy bar with a big sour tinge.   Hides the 15.6% ABV well.   Would be a better beer I think had it not been soured, allowed the barrel aging (Bourbon) to be more of an impact.   Imagine a Bourbon aged Imperial candy bar like beer.   Yeah... unfortunately this one is the sour version so its not as... well... deserving.   Thanks for the bottle Rob!

Hazy tan in color... Aroma of white chocolate, coconut, caramel, vanilla, tropical fruit... Flavor is similar to white chocolate, with notes of coconut, slightly acidic tart finish which tastes unintended... Boozy... Okay at best ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from bruery store. Pours cream brown with white head. Taste is a weird infected sour with some bourbon notes. Honestly taste like this beer went bad. If this is how it was supposed to taste. It not very good. Disappointed

This beer sounded GREAT. I maxed out my order, was excited to get this in and then Bruery issued me a refund for quality issues. I heard most bottles are sour....still I’m trying it anyway on a Monday night after a long day at work.

A - No gushing or anything really...maybe it’s fine? Pours a disgusting plum brown toilet water with lots of sediment. Looks pretty nasty. Lots of adjuncts in this beer so I’m not surprised.

S - Nose is straight up sour cherry & vinegar. I can get some vanilla.

T - Taste is sour and tart but I can get Coconut, chocolate and vanilla very clearly at the start, middle and the long finish. the tart acidic tastes of cherries, candies and wheat do take a back seat to what this beer was supposed to be. I expected a malt bomb and I’m getting a soured adjunct strong ale and that is really disappointing.

M - Thin and oily mouthfeel. Residual tartness before vanilla comes through at the long finish

O - So, I’m not surprised how bad this is but I’m bummed out. I guess this beer was free minus shipping so it’s not really an all out loss but I certainly won’t be opening another one for a while and may just take it to bottle shares with the warning that it’s probably sour. No point in trying to trade or give it away. Frankly, I’ll probably drink half of this. It’s not bad.
