look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - A deep, rich black with circles of brown and crimson at the top and bottom respectively.

S - Peaty and earthy notes building on a strong malted base. Hints of coffee and liquorice. Coconut comes through beautifully fresh from the can.

T - Following, the nose; smoked malts, peat and prunes initially, followed by a little bitterness to the finish. Really pleasant but I'm left searching for additional flavours to flesh out the drinking between first taste and aftertaste. On the plus side this lightens the beer, making it more sessionable.

M - Creamy and satisfyingly weighty. Nicely balanced carbonation. Delicate.

O - Had heard good things and it pretty much lived up to expectations. The only real negative is that I'm left wanting heavier coconut in the flavor profile (-.25). I'd be very surprised if someone picked out that it was brewed with toasted coconut without smelling it first. Despite this it's a very nice wee beer and I look forward to having it on tap next week :)
