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.

A: Pours an opaque jet black in color with some very light hints of red highlights when held up to the light and some light amounts of visible carbonation right at the surface. The beer has a two finger tall dark mocha head that quickly reduces to a mottled extremely thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of dark roasted malts with some light hints of coconut and something akin to soap.

T: Very similar to the smell, the taste of this beer is light to moderate flavors of roasted malts with some very light notes of coconut and again that something akin to soap.

M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: Extremely easy to drink due to the very light body in the mouthfeel and light pleasant flavors (though I really wish the coconut flavor was stronger). I wish I was not able to detect the soapiness in the smell and taste.
