22oz. bottle poured into a snifter. Thanks to Matt for sharing!

(A)- Pours pitch black. Almost no head. Some residual coconut flake floaties still in this.

(S)- This literally smells like chocolate covered coconut; Mounds bar anyone? Absolutely delicious aroma.

(T)- Liquid Mounds bar. Lightly toasted coconut meets chocolate and the ever classic bourbon county intensity of the barrel.

(M)- A smooth and mellow carbonation level. Rich and sweet. The coconut really makes this something special when added to the classic base.

(O)- Fantastically bourbon county stout, yet the coconut really adds a dynamic layer to an already dynamic beer.

Thanks to nknauz for the IP trade at Dark Lord Day 2014

Poured from a bottle into a snifter, 7-12-2014

Appearance- Pours a deep mocha brown with plenty of brown hue and shine to it. A little thinner than I expected, but very clean, with some decent legs on the glass. Not much head that hangs around, but definitely some coconut threads floating around on the top. A tiny halo of rich tan bubbles cling to the glass.

Smell- Rich oaky barrel notes bring cinnamon, chai, and dark tobacco notes, and they all blend nicely with roasty coffee, chocolate caramel, chicory, toasted coconut, and sweet creamy coconut. Smells awesome.

Taste- No astringency at all. Strong bitter espresso and dark chocolate is quickly brightened into sweet caramel, bourbon vanilla extract, brown sugar, dulce de leche, creamy milk chocolate and big toasted coconut flavors. Like someone took a Samoa Girl Scout cookie, and made an awesome stout with it. Amazing. So tasty, and no booziness to interfere with the flavors at work.

Mouthfeel- Super smooth and creamy. A bit thin, but with the big flavor, very well suited and not overbearing.

Overall- Simply put, one of the best. I am all in on the hype with this one, and reaffirms my faith in the BCBS variants. Very well done. A true gem of a beer.

Drinking this beer is like finding Kate Upton naked suntanning on the beach of a deserted island. After you smell her you have to take a step back and admire her, so nice and it pours so oily. And when you taste her, you have to stop because you dont wanna finish her, which is good because the warmer the better, the coconut kick it gives you at the end of every drink is a little orgasm, yes this beer is that good. One of the best I've ever had.
