This one was a tough one for me to rate. It really isn't as bad as my rating leads on. At the same time it really doesn't have anything special about it either. I guess I could see myself enjoying the entire 4 pack. Just not sure I'd come back to it with my next purchase. Definitely worth trying.

Pours an opaque deep brown/black with a foamy one inch burnt caramel head that dissipates somewhat quickly, leaving no lacing.

Tar, cola, roast malt, and chocolate form the initial aroma. Unfortunately there's a pretty strong metallic character that's overpowering. Nutty notes emerge. As it warms, coconut sweetness becomes evident.

Flavor is overpowered by that tangy character. I've been told their beer is not pasteurized, so it should never be out of refrigeration. This was purchased and stored integrated, so I'll score based on other elements.

Chocolate, tar, and lightly roasted malt form the backbone of flavor, with coconut hitting mid palate, carrying into a slightly dry, toasted finish.

Body is a touch watery, with carbonation tending to the high side.

Coconut is less prevalent than I expected. Good representation of chocolate character, and not overly bitter at the finish.

Thanks to Chris. Odd roast and a touch of coconut. Very odd and dry. Acrid. Not a fan of this one at all; couldn't really find anything that I liked.
