Cacaonut was definitely not subject to the Purity Law, as this strong ale uses the adjuncts coconut and cocao. It's strong, and it's from The Bruery; two good reasons to try this beer. On to the beer:
Lighter marron, creamy brown colored with almost no head on the pour. Smells great, reminding me of past smells. There's a ton of toasted coconut to be smelled, and also a little chocolate. It smells a lot like coconut cake.
The direction of the taste goes a different way. At first is the taste of coconut before a healthy hit of liquor soaked barrels make their mark. Is that Southern Comfort I'm tasting? Lots of toffee treats, and also zesty pineapple. With the latter, the taste now reminds me of the many upside-down cakes my mother would bake. A little bit of alcohol is perceived, though that's fine given it's over 15% ABV. The beer is full bodied and smooth, and is to be consumed slowly.
A strong, but very fun beer to close out the night. Drinking an entire 750 ml bottle would be a stretch, but another 5 ounce pour in the future I wouldn't mind.
