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

Poured into my Huna snifter

Appearance: Pours a dark brown with some transparency around the edges with a nice creamy light mocha thick head of one finger.

Smell: Coffee, then sweet mild oak and coconut. really yummy as it warms up.

Taste: is right up front with coconut infused honey, sweet and milky. This ends perfectly with a hint off coffee to balance out your palate. I am not a coffee beer fan but this fits perfectly with balanced milky honey coffee. like something you would get at coffee bean and tea leaf. Awesome!

Mouthfeel: medium to heavy bodied with depth of contrasting flavors. leaves you wanting more.

Overall: this is a really good beer that drinks well fresh out of the bottle. interested to see where it will go from here in 6 months.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Almost black. Nice khaki head. Lasts forever. Leggy as I swirl it.

Smell - Kinda nondescript malt and honey aroma. A little boozy. Some roast.

Taste - Much better. Much more roast and honey. It is a bit campfireish. Some tea, but it's a little odd and astringent. Very sweet.

Mouthfeel - Thick and chewy. Finish drops off quickly. Heavy and sweet.

Overall - It's tasty, but strange. I kinda like it. Couldn't drink a lot of it.
