On tap taster at Jacks Abby on 2/27. Overall very good with chocolate and dark fruit notes that punch with a bit of booziness without the backend heat. Coconut hidden a bit but maybe shines as it warms but I wasn't there long enough. Flavors complex and work very well together.
A: jet black, a little mocha head
S: chocolate, sweet sticky dark fruit, bourbon
T: Similar to nose but as mentioned about limited booze heat but full of bold flavors
M: thick like oil

Poured from a growler into a tulip on 2/28/14

A: black with a one finger mocha head that dissipates to a thin layer.

S: sweet chocolate with coconut underneath, strong booze, almost creamy

T: a little bitter chocolate, coffee, creamy sweet and just a touch of coconut at the finish but not at all overpowering. Boozy warm and delicious.

M: smooth and heavy with minimal carbonation

O: i love the BA framinghammer and all the variants and this is no exception. The coconut is present just enough to not overpower and blends well with the barrel aged goodness. Glad i picked some up.

This was a phenomenal beer. I've never had a coconut beer before but my instinct tells me this would be easy to screw up. The coconut flavor mixes so well with the coffee, chocolate, and bourbon flavors. They definitely took a risk by the amount of coconut (first the smell) and then the forward tasting flavors. Could have been a disaster but its well done. Great work Jack's Abby.
