look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured into shaker pint

A: very dark in appearance pretty decent creamy off white head good retention on the glass and lacing


S: This beer smells like dark chocolate and roast coffee has a little bit of an oatmeal taste too


T: Very chocolatey with coffee not as sweet as you expect slight off flavor at the end water maybe 


M: fairly thin but that's par for the course with a milk stout 

O: really liked the tastes on this one for a milk stout it was not bad it was a little thin but overall it was good and not too sweet on the finish. I'd drink this again if I ran across it

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.

Had a happy accident at the brew kettle.. Got this little guy for free due to a beer mix up on delivery.

A - poured a beautiful black with 1 finger off white head. Head decimates quickly and almost no lacing.

S - getting a nice amount of chocolate.. Faint coconut..

T - full bodied, roasty, creamy.. Tastes of cream, chocolate, hints of coconut and lactose.

M - super easy to drink, very creamy the whole way. Reminded me of a roasty chocolate milk.

O - beautiful beer especially for free. Very easy and can session this all day. Will be returning for this beer.
