Pour is black with light brown head. Nose is strong, lots of bourbon and heat, some of the rich malt but no where near a regular bcs, with a little of the coconut in the nose. The taste is a little all over the place, lots of coconut in there with some of the rich maltiness of the bcs up front, coconut mid palate, lots of heat and bourbon towards the back and a ton if coconut lingers. Full bodied and moderate carbonation, a hint chalky in back.

Bottle @ home shared via Greg. Black with a tan head. Mildaroma of chocolate, booze, fudge, vanilla, some coffee. Condensed milk, sugary sweets, lots of alcohol. Reminds me of baking something similar to a 7 layer bar dunked in liquor. Flavor is awfully sweet, chewy, sticky on the palate. Carbonation is smooth, as expected. Lots of booze on the finish, cloying. The coconut isn't extreme in this one, which is nice. Even so, the beer is completely unbalanced, and definitely on the dessert side of imperial stouts. I’ll leave this one for the beer drinkers with a sweet tooth.
