Damico (3145) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Pours bubbly amber with an off white head. Aroma is lightly sweetened coconut with some nuttiness. Flavor brings light toasted malts and toasted coconut with a bit of a bitterness on the end.

Headbanger (3942) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUN 28, 2014
22oz bottle 6/28/14 (Armanettis-Aurora)-46 in Shaker-Pours a dark amber with a small tan head. Aroma of malt and chocolate. Taste of the same with more chocolate and a very small amount of coconut. This light to medium bodied brew is well balanced and not too bad.

nimbleprop (7763) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 25, 2014
22oz bottle pours a clear, watery caramel brown with a ring of fast fading white head. Nose is what youd expect, some coconut meat, raw cocoa nubs, some caramel. Flavor fails to come together, sure there is chocolate and coconut, but its almost as if the flavors exist independently. A little bit of suntan lotion. Thin finish. Quite odd.

[Tap] Chestnut brown color with a thin head. Nose is of cocoa powder. Tastes of caramel, toasted nuts, more cocoa powder. Hints of vanilla, but little coconut. Lighter than expected body. Tasting notes from 1/2014.

daknole (10919) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - FEB 13, 2014
Faint brown in color. So where the fuck is the coconut and chocolate. Total bullshit. Bad deal.

kaser (5869) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Poured from 22oz bottle. Very light brown color. White head. Brown sugar mild aroma. Light chocolate and coconut flavors. Underwhelming. Nothing bad or great about it

HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JAN 30, 2014
22 oz. bottle. Rating from notes. Pours a medium to darkish brownish color which I found somewhat surprising. Aroma of chocolate, coconut, mild earth notes as well. Flavor is sweet, soaked in coconut, chocolate, mild bread and cookie dough notes. Not much balance to speak of. Lighter bodied than I thought it would be, somewhat thin. Medium carbonation. Finishes sweet. This is ok, but not something I would buy again.

Scipio (867) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - JAN 9, 2014
Pours a clear dark copper in color with a thinner white head. The aroma isnt very potent. It contains caramel, light chocolate and coconut, and hints of roasted malts. The taste is a compliment of caramel and coconut, with the caramel standing out more. There is faint chocolate and coffee underneath. Aftertaste is short with that initial caramel and coconut flavor that was initially found. More full in body, with a thick, chewy texture. Minimal carbonation here. This one is rather bland and uninspired.
