4.5/5  rDev +6.4%

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 750 ml bottle into a tulip glass. The label lists the abv at 9% and there a brief description on the back label.

Appearance: The body has a dark brownish color with some lighter brownish amber highlights. It looks like it has a slight haze and it has lots of fine carbonation running up the sides of the glass. From the pour I got an inch of light tan foam. This foam fades slowly to ring of foam at the edge of the glass. A quick swirl excites the foam. Lacing is minimal.

Smell: It’s aroma is very inviting and full of deep fruity and yeasty notes. I gets notes of red grapes, raisins, plums and over ripe pears. These notes are surrounded by a pleasant sweet bready maltiness with just the very slightest hint of the 9% abv.

Taste / Palate: Like the aroma it’s flavor follows in its footsteps. The has a good full body with loads of malty, yeasty and dark fruitiness. I also get nice mild notes of vanilla extract along with some alcohol which adds another nice layer of complexity. Mouth feel is smooth and full with lots of soft carbonation.

500ml bottle. Nice herb aroma. Pours black with tan head. Medium sweet taste. Full bodied with creamy texture and average carbonation. Very good strong beer.

Wonderful brew pours dark with a off white head. Toasted coconut undertones in both smell and taste. Feels creamy, thick, and has such a balance between hoppy and sweet, that it almost feels like a dessert.

A- Muddy brown bordering on black body, big foamy, tinted cream head. Abundant carbonation bubbles visible. Lace settles over the body. 4.1

S- Huge toasted coconut aroma. It's reminiscent of Malibu rum. Sweet malt makes this smell even more like dessert. 4

T- Toasted coconut again, plus dark plum, vanilla all swirl around into a brew reminiscent of a toasted coconut donut of sorts. 4.2

M- Very smooth and creamy, yet still effervescent, and slightly boozy. 4.2

Superb beer, plus a unique flavor and aroma like few beers I've had, this beer deserves more love. 4.2
