Found this bottle in the cellar the other day, not sure why I would've bought a milk stout with coconut since I loathe coconut, but this was bottled in 7/2012, so hopefully whatever coconut that was there has faded...take all of this into consideration when reading this review. Enjoyed from a perennial snifter.
a - brew poured pitch black with a generous dark tan head. I waited, let it dissolve some and then filled the remainder of the glass. Head hung out as at least a skin of dark tan bubbles on the surface, slippery lacing.
s - nose is milk stout with chocolate and roast and an ever so slight hint of coconut and cream.
t/m - taste is pretty good. Mbig chocolate with a nice amount of roast and no discernible coconut to speak of...probably more vanilla than coconut. Soft souring dark fruit in the back ground. A bit fizzy but an easy drinker.
o - overall, pleasantly surprised based on the reviews of a newer batch. The 2012 seems to be doing okay right now, though I would say drink them if you got them.

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.
