On tap at the Tap House Grill in Kenwood.

A: Arrived in the glass almost pitch black, with a thin tan head. Minimal lacing was left on the glass.

S: I did not detect much of the chocolate or coconut promised by the name, but instead a mixture of roasty - yeasty malt and what seemed to be sweet mint. The combination smelled a bit like loam from a riverbank.

T: Again, not much in the way of chocolate or coconut. They were present, but mostly obscured by a single-note roasted malt profile and that mintiness. The beer opened with a club of dark roasted malt, with sweetness and mint joining in the middle to present a taste not unlike drinking a fish. Said fishy taste lingered on after the finish.

F: This is a full, chewy, heavy stout, exactly what one wants to feel.

O: Something of a disappointment to me, with the flavor profile. I won't be repeating.

A- Pours a really dark brown maybe even black with a thin tannish brown head. Head has ok retention, becomes a thin layer of bubbles and very thin lacing behind.

S-Smell is fairly sweet. Milk chocolate, fairly light coconut, light roasted malts, touch of char and mint like.

T- Mint is every where here and dominants this brew. Coconut is fairly light. Every thing here seems muddled due to the mint.

M- Medium in body and fairly light in carbonation.

O- I couldn't finish this brew and passed it off to a friend for his White Rajah.

12oz. bottle at Lizardville Beer Store

A: Adequate enough. Thin.

S: Some coconut!

T: This is a travesty. Just a touch heavy on coconut extract maybe. Flashbacks to the beach and all them honey's rubbing Hawaiin Tropic lotion.... I'm surprised the bottle didn't slip out of my hand.

M: Pretty gross actually. Like lube / oil. SLICK.

O: The coconut overwhelms everything. BK may have outdone One Eyed Jack with this one.

Disappointed! Too much coconut! Over powered the other flavors!

Big coconut fan, but I expected more from this beer. Not sure why Brew Kettle decided to bottle it.

Bottle says 5.75% ABV/22 IBUs this directly conflicts the profile listed.

12oz bottle poured into a snifter. Pours dark brown; basically no head, lacing and retention. Aromas have lots of cocoa malts. Hints of hazelnut. Hints of black coffee. The coconut is subtle in the nose, but are alive in the flavor department. Lots of milk chocolate in the flavors. Tons of sweet coconut. More hazelnut in this mix. This beer is sweet, but definitely not cloying or anything. Mouthfeel is light, but not overly thin; active carbonation. Alcohol goes unnoticed. Smooth brew.

I like this. It makes a nice dessert beer. If you like coconut, this would definitely be up your alley.
