Source/Serving: 12oz can

S: Burnt bread crust, wet moss, toasted almonds, grill residue. Hints of toasted coconut, spruce, decaying leaves.

T: Slightly sweet, faintly tart up front that hits with a smooth rich toasty, caramel roastiness. In the perfect roast range between toffee and coffee/chocolate, which gives the roastiness some depth and richness. Creamy, oily and smooth. Coconut hits in the middle, clean and toasty, along with light coffee and a nice nuttiness. Little to no harshness from the roastiness or bitterness, but its well balanced and only slightly sweet. Acidity is faint. Faintly mossy hops. Moderately high body. Finish really shows off the coconut and nuttiness, with a lingering toasted bread and smooth chocolate note.

Notes: A well-organized brew

Interesting gimmick, but it goes a little overkill with the flavor… kind of like a hot sauce that gets its "reputation" from merely burning your tongue off. Would love to try it in draft form to see if perhaps it was just a bad batch (as it seems to be well regarded by everyone else on here), but I was wholly unimpressed with the canned variation. Love Maui Brewing Company's other beer though so I wouldn't talk anybody out of experimenting.
