Love the combination of coconut, chocolate, and caramel. This one is like drinking a beer version of Almond Joy. I could have several of these.

3.6/5  rDev -2.2%

12 oz. bottle poured into a Burley Oak snifter (3/26/14)

A: Quickly dissipated head with almost no lacing. Only a slight head upon swirling. Dark brown with an amber tinge.

S: Lots of coconut and caramel with just a bit of chocolate. The smells get a lot better with warmth. It is predominately that of caramel, but roasted/burnt/caramelized. I get a lot of flan/custard/creme brulee.

T: A nice caramel flavor to this. Tastes like a caramel/sweet brown ale. I get almost no coconut, and probably wouldn't know it was here if it wasn't advertised as such. Coconut is a subtle flavor and hard to get across. I could see it as being the roasted coconut on top of a dessert.

M: Quite slight with only a tinge of carbonation.

O: Decent. I suspect this will become somewhat popular due to the name, advertising and marketing behind it, just like with Sweet Baby Jesus. I'm steadily going through their stuff so that I can give them a fair shot, me living/being from MD and all.

3.49/5  rDev -5.2%

A: Dark coppery pour with a dark beige, thin, whispy head that was opaque in the vessel. No lacing, some signs of carbonation around the edges.

S: Aroma of dry scotch and caramel, spicy with some fruity sultanas and strong indications of rootbeer candy. Some sugar-rum coffee additions.

T: Deep caramelized sweetness, peat with a light smokiness, originally mistook this for a scotch ale at first. Sweet figs and raisins with a touch of honey-munich sweetness. Toasty buttered oak, hazelnut coffee with some butterscotch sweetness. Lastly there is some sweet cola and rootbeer twang on the finish.

M: Buttery creamy, mid-heavy thickness, that was softly carbonated.

O: Overall a sweetly caramelized malting similar to a scotch ale, a sweet brown ale that may be a bit much in multiples but is interesting for a take.
