Thanks to Cam for sharing good beers that fly under my radar on a regular basis.

A - Blackish pour, small beige head. A ring and bits of lace remain at the end.

S - Very coconut forward, good authentic shaved coconut type deal, nice chocolate cookie going on as well. Toasty fresh/out of the oven baked goods.

T - Perhaps even more coconutty, impressive amount of straight up shaved coconut, coconut milk, coconut cookie, etc. Chocolate, slight roast, a bit of a milk stout vibe, toasty malts.

M -Silky smooth, medium carbonation, good oily body that suits the flavors quite nicely.

O - Really impressive coconut flavor. Maybe a little over the top and a one trick pony with the coconut/chocolate punch. But admittedly quite good.

A- Bomber poured to three glasses at a mini-tasting with a black body where light pierces just the very edge. The mocha crown builds up to just about two fingers with a foamy, frothy consistency. Fairly good head retention and large webs of lacing.

S- A massive blast of toasted coconut pretty much owns the nostrils with Samoa cookies immediately coming to mind. With some time the coconut takes a bit of a step back and allows a dusty, cocoa powder richness to open up. Coconut and chocolate here.

T- Coconut is the main driving force and I hate to say it again but Samoa cookies really come to mind, in a good way. Oily, shredded dried coconut. Cocoa nibs seems to gain more and more strength with each sip and eventually it finds its place in the flavor. Slight caramel sweetness, roast grains and some earthy hops.

MF- Fairly thick bodied with probably the slickest, most oily feel I have found in a beer. A chewy puffiness comes with the medium level of carbonation that provides a certain richness to the huge dessert flavors. Bitter cocoa powder finish.

Coconut pretty much says it all. Toasted, oily and decadent mixture of heavy chocolate and massive coconut, dessert comes in beer form once again.
