The bitterness overpowers the beer. Hard to get the flavors through.

A: Pours an opaque yet clear extremely dark brown in color with moderate amounts of gentle visible carbonation along the surface of the beer and a moderate amount of garnet red highlights. The beer has a two finger tall dense foamy very dark tan in color that slowly reduces to a mottled very thick film covering the entire surface of the beer with a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of roasted malts, chocolate, and very light hints of vanilla + coconut.

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of roasted malts with moderate flavors of cocoa nibs/dark chocolate without a lot of associated sweetness. That is followed by light flavors of vanilla and coconut (again without being sweet). Light to moderate amounts of roasty bitterness that lingers well beyond the finish.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Relatively smooth.

O: Very enjoyable - nice coconut, cocoa nib, and roasty malt flavors though I wish a little more of the coconut came through in the aroma (and flavor). Easy to drink and definitely a great beer to grab if you come across it.

Minimal detection of coconut, a decent sweet porter but not much more
