Big thanks to Jason....16 oz can.....loads of coconut melds with dark chocolate wrapped in abundant sweetness. Really tasty and interesting...some roast would balance this out and make it exceptional, but what's here is really, really good.

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.
