A: Poured a dark, creamy brown with just a touch of tan head lingering around the edge of the glass.
S: The main note is a dark chocolate sweetness, but interwoven with that are notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, and a hint of coconut.
T: The flavors echoed the aroma with a big dark chocolate sweetness, and notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, and coconut. The flavors were all woven together wonderfully so you didn't get any one of them at once, but all of them together the whole time.
M: A nice full mouthfeel, and despite between rather sweet in flavor it didn't leave that characteristic stickiness on your palate.
O: On a recent trip to St. Louis this was definitely the stand out beer that I had all weekend. Truly a world class beer with flavors reminding me of some rather nice chocolate I have eaten before, Republic de Cacao. Definitely one of the best sweet stouts I have ever had.

This beer is nothing like the description on the bottle. In fairness it is almost a year old and so the coconut is non existent. Ironically this beer reminded me of a sour. My Dad, brother, and I split this bottle, there's were drain pours. I like sours so I stuck with it. However, it was very disappointing.

750 ml Bottle from Dawson's while visiting Maryland. Bottled 4/2013,so I really should have paid attention to the dating when I bought this. i assume the coconut will be gone. Pours black with a one finger mocha colored head that looks lightly creamy. Sweet lactose and chocolate aroma, a good bit of roast, don't get much coconut. Flavor is sweet lactose, graham cracker, and again not much coconut to speak of except maybe a hint of sweetness that isn't lactose or chocolate. There seems to be a bit of cardboardy oxidation in this as well. Body is medium with medium plus carbonation. Not a bad beer, but I must say I am a little disappointed here but that may not be fair given the bottle date and known disappearance of coconut in these beers.
