Pours a black color. 1/4 inch head of a tan color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of sweet malt, roasted malt, alcohol, oatmeal, hint of yeast, and chocolate. Fits the style of a Milk / Sweet Stout. Mouth feel is smooth and creamy, with a low carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, chocolate, roasted malt, alcohol, oatmeal, and a hint of yeast. Overall, a rich, sweet, thick, and complex beer. Good appearance, aroma, feel, body, and blend.

Picked this up at West Lakeview Liquors a while back. Served in a Hill Farmstead tulip at Jason's place.
A - Tan foam settles to a thick collar, wisps, and minimal lacing. Near-black, opaque body.
S - The taste is a nice mix of shaved, roasted coconut, chocolate, roasted malts, and light caramel. There's a yeasty, dark bread flavor supporting the sweeter flavors, and this is very much on the 'sweet' stout side of things.
T - Taste is similar, with toasted coconut, semi-sweet chocolate, caramel, and some nebulous dark fruit and nutty characters in the periphery.
M - Smooth texture that is lightly tannic in the finish. Medium body with pleasant carbonation, and a dry finish. No alcohol presence.
D - A nice beer, particularly if you like coconut. Perhaps a tad too expensive, but I'd happily drink a glass if I saw it on-tap somewhere. Perennial makes some great stouts, and this is no exception.
