Bottle shared by Chris. Thanks, dogg. I never expected to get to try this.

Pouring black with a thin brown head that falls off to nothingness almost immediately, this beer is oily and dense with specks of coconut noticeable. The nose is hilariously decadent and well integrated. Like a chocolate covered coconut macaroon, this is incredibly coconutty, moderately chocolatey and has a bold dash of vanilla. What's surprising is how well the booze is integrated into the nose; it never gets in the way. The palate's similar. A clear, strong statement, a liquid realization of a coconut macaroon, this is thick, full bodies and decadent. Still, this is very well integrated and is remarkably easy to drink. Full in body and softly carbonated with a lingering finish of chocolate and coconut, this is awesome.

Great Coconut Flavor, with bits of coconut in the beer itself.

Not much of a head, pours DARK brown and thick. Good malt with lots of sweetness to offset the nutty coconut flavor. I've had this beer twice, and it didn't change much in 6 month. This is an outstanding beer and a jewel of my cellar!
