Pour is black with a tight mocha head. Nose is heavy roast with a moderate sugary sweetness and a faint coconut touch. Taste is less roast but far more sweet. The coconut is more present and there is still some roast up front. The sweetness is overpowering and sugary. Full bodied and strong carbonation with an oily slick feel.

This was the 2013 edition
I have been excited about this traded beer for a while
I've noticed a lot of variety in the reviews and think the recent reviews may be effected by the year of bottling since the 2013 edition tastes infected to me.
Appearance is nice carmel brown w/ nice lacing in the glass
Smells like a stout, can't appreciate the coconut, but wouldn't expect to 14 months after bottling.
Taste: Well again expected coconut to diminish, but the bite afterwards was definitely lacto to me.
Mouthfeel: smooth
Overall: Well, I would love to have expected the lacto bite, but didn't know. Otherwise this beer clearly is well past the prime from the 2013 edition.
