A big thanks to NHbeerguy for sending this one over via trade!

A: Pours an opaque black with some browning on the edges and 1/2 fingers width of fizzy mocha colored head. Head dissipate down very quickly, then some floaters can been seen on the top of the beer which is presumably coconut. Leaves effectively no lacing but some of the floaters stick to the edges of the glass. 4

S: Tons of the traditional bourbon county brand goodness, with chocolatey fudge, vinous dark fruits and roasted malt. Next I get some coconut, which is more subtle than I expected. Bourbon characters are there, with an oaky vanilla and bourbon-y booze. Excellent but I would appreciate more coconut flavors. 4.25

T: Very sweet and very boozey. Heavy bourbon/whiskey notes as well with charred oak and vanilla. Lots of dark chocolate, then the coconut starts to come out. At time it tastes like an Almond Joy. I also get some dark fruits, roasty characters, coffee like bitterness, and booze. Excellent and continues to get better throughout the drink. 4.75

M/D: Full bodied, a bit chewy, ABV is certainly noticeable (as is expected in a 14plus% ABV'er), but adds to the complexity and is not hot going down. Maybe a touch syrupy at times but its fairly smooth and all things considered drinkability is great. 4.25

O: This is pretty fantastic. Overall, I would have still liked a more prominent coconut presence, but still a great beer. Absolutely worth seeking out. 4.75
