i expected this to be incredibly sweet, and it isnt, so props for that. the name suggests a more dominant coconut flavor that ever shows up in this beer, and man did i wait for it, let it warm up, kept coming back to it, just never came. sure there is coconut there, but death by? hardly! the beer is great though, the chocolate balances the malt in a nice way, its rich but not too rich, and drinking a pint of it is no problem. the coconut is mostly all in the finish, even after the swallow, which doesnt feel all the way satisfying to me, but i still like it. i think i am just partial to coconut, the beer could definitely be improved, but i like it just the same. full body and smooth feel, not a ton of bubbles so it glides down easy, is a bit filling, but again is never sweet, which i think is one of its greatest attributes. they really need to package this for regular release. its time the do something new for the people here, and this would be a great place to start.
