No matter what was in this bottle, I have a ton of love for Bottlecraft. Definitely my favorite store in San Diego.

A: Pours a slightly thin looking dark brown color with a one finger light brown head. OK retention and a bit of lace after each sip.

S: I was expecting an overpoweringly sweet aroma. Not really gonna happen with this one. Faint roasted malt with just an edge of coconut. Dark bread, cocoa powder and a bit of milk chocolate. The sweetness is almost totally missing here, though.

T: Honestly, this is pretty bland. I'm not getting much from the chocolate, the coconut or the lactose. Roasted malt throughout with a slightly velvety edge to it from the lactose. A bit of coconut oil and coconut water, but I'm not getting the German chocolate cake instant diabetes sweetness that I was hoping for. Finish ends with a hint of fresh coconut and a little hint of dark chocolate. I was really stoked for this one, but it just didn't really do it for me. If you're looking for a dessert beer, you should probably look elsewhere.

Thanks to wethorseblanket for sharing this one at Wowcoolman's tasting.

Bottled June 2014.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, and slight smoke aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa and smoke flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is quite smoky and doesn't have any real coconut qualities that I can discern.

Serving type: bottle.
