look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Pours thick like molasses dark black with a very thin dark tan head that fades to a thin ring around the glass.

Smell is incredible loads of chololate and coconut on the front end that fades into a slight dark fruit and rich caramel sweetness.

Taste is equally incredible. Loads of chocolate on the front end along with tons of coconut. Coconut and chocolate are richer then I have even tasted before in a beer. Some slight roasted malt flavors and some dark fruit and alcohol on the back end. Unbeleivable.

Mouthfeel is super thick and rich. Very light carbonation. This is a perfect sipping beer.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.75

A-Black in the glass, one finger tan head and then bits of coconut are floating around.

S-Starts with lots of coconut, then some vanilla, roasted malt and a tad bit of whisky

T-Starts with amazing coconut along with vanilla. Balanced out with chocolate and slight coffee. Some rye spiceness as well.

M-Medium to heavy in body, nice carbonation and thick.

O-Wow. GI knocked it out of the park with this one. Beer lives up to the hype. Glad I got to try it.
