Pours a very dark cola brown with a very short-lived caramel-colored head. Aromas of sweet coconut, brown sugar, alcohol, and when the alcohol fades, milk chocolate. Very, very rich. Phenomenally creamy mouthfeel. Barely any carbonation at all--and that's appreciated. A lot of chocolate, a bit of coconut, alcohol, and maybe some vanilla. Very sweet, very potent. Like Parabola with more alcohol. I love it. Trying to sip it, but its so delicious that I keep wanting to drink it.
