From a 16 oz can into a snifter.

A-The pour produces a short-lived, short tan head. The beer is nearly black with just a bit of light getting through at the edges to reveal that the beer is, in fact, brown. No bubbles are visible.

S-The aroma is pretty heavy on the coconut. The flavors are lightly toasted and tropical, but do not provide much in the way of caramel. I also sniff some milk chocolate and creamy marshmallow flavor. It reminds me a bit of a Mounds bar. The aroma is sweet but not cloying.

T-The taste is similar with coconut, marshmallow, and milk (and some dark) chocolate flavors dominating. The beer is pretty simple, but I get just a touch of caramel as the beer nears room temperature.

M-The feel is on the thin side of average with a mellow carbonation.

O-This is a good, but not remarkable beer. The coconut flavor is strong, but I have had other beers with a less artificial flavor. The same goes for the chocolate flavors. I guess I was hoping more for a Ten Fidy with coconut than what this beer really is, but I can't knock it too hard because the beer isn't half bad.
