I had this beer a couple of years ago at the Autumn Brew Review. I voted it as the best beer there, but hadn't seen it since then. I was happy to see it was released this year in growlers. I cracked it open last night after a long day of homebrewing. Here is my review.

A: Pours jet black w/ some amber hues in the background. The beige head is there initially but dies relatively fast. I guess that is what coconut will do to a beer. Carbonation is moderate. Looks pretty good, but some more head retention would be nice.

S: Wow! The description of this being like a Mounds bar couldn't be more spot on. Lots of coconut quickly followed by chocolate and sweetness. Light roastiness. Smells phenomenal. The aromas are really well balanced. I was afraid that the coconut would overpower everything. Very nice flavors.

T: The flavors in this beer are amazing. A lovely blend of coconut, roasted coffee, dark and milk chocolate are abound. There is some faint caramel and toffee in the middle. The lactose rounds out a very smooth, but not cloying sweetness in the end. This beer is extremely well balanced for what it is trying to be. Really an epic after dinner beer.

M: Medium to heavy bodied. Full mouthfeel. Smooth and creamy. Doesn't finish too sticky. Moderate carbonation.

D: This is an amazing beer. It really is a testament to what flavors you can get in a beer. I felt that it was very well balanced with nothing too overpowering. I can't give it a 5 on drinkability only because I could never see drinking more than one or two of these in a sitting. I will buy it again and again if I can find it. I only wish it came in bottles rather than a whole growler.

Imperial pint on tap @ Town Hall Tap-$6

Served with a thin finger of beige head topping off a dark brown brew. Aroma is first and foremost coconut, followed up with sweet chocolate. Dessert is served. Taste is like the aroma, all I can think of is this is a like a liquefied Mounds bar, with minimal sweetness. Absolutely delicious. Each drink is as exciting as the first. An amazing beer. Carbonation is light which works well for this beer, body is silky but not at all overpowering. This is easily the best milk stout I have had. Well worth the hype. Too busy enjoying this beer to take good notes. This is an easy one to rate-I know I'll be getting at least one of these every time I find it on tap at one of the Town Hall locations.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

64 oz. growler poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black with a little transparency at the edges. Small khaki head. Thick collar.

Smell - Lots of coconut. Slight acidic aroma. Chocolate.

Taste - Coconut is less strong but still potent. Coffee roasted malt. Sweet caramel. Chocolate.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Light for a stout. Medium low carbonation.

Overall - Good, but I'm clearly missing the hype.
