Bottle shared by myself tonight.

Pours practically still, looks like there's no carbonation, with absolutely no head or lacing. I noticed, near the end of the glass, that there's pieces of coconut floating around.

Smells fairly strongly of toasted coconut, with bourbon, chocolate, marshmallow, and a very small of booze.

This tastes delicious, although the coconut is not quite as strong as in the aroma. I'm not picking up any specific rye qualities, but tons of the typical Bourbon County qualities, but smoothed out and slightly sweeter. There's a good amount of syrupy molasses as well. The year-ish on this has smoothed it out into one of the most delicious stouts I've ever tasted.

This one is very thick bodied, with a sticky and syrupy mouthfeel- it clings to your mouth, and to the glass. There is almost no carbonation. It's really drinkable, goes down so easy- basically because it's so tasty.

The hype's been met with this one. It's as good as everyone says it is, basically.
