Smell is of coconut. Taste is of a mounds bar. Overall, not bad.

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.

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.

As far as milk/sweet stouts are concerned it's on it's game. Not real thick and you don't have to eat this one. Although it reminds me of a mounds bar. One and done for me but I liked it.

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
