22oz bottle, split

I was stoked to see this in the family fridge as I wasn't aware this beer existed. The regular Coco Loco is an exceptional beer and this version has been amped up with vanilla beans and coconut. This beer was extremely unfiltered - bits of coconut throughout and I even found a little pasty clump that was extremely bitter (condensed hop?). Outside of that sloppiness, this beer was quite tasty with heavy vanilla notes. I prefer the regular version, but this was fun.

Dark pitch black in color with a thin brown head. TONS of big floaties on this one which seemed strange for the style. Nose is dark chocolate, malty, a nice hint of the coconut is there. Tastes of dark slightly burnt chocolate and a nice sweet coconut flavor. Fairly thick body with a dark chocolate/coconut aftertaste.

3.91/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours out fudge brown with a really fizzy head and a few coconut floaties, to boot; the head fritters away rather quickly though it does leave some spotty lace behind

Smell: Roasty, with strong chocolate notes and just a whiff of coconut

Taste: Very roasty, up front, with a growing dark chocolate flavor building in the middle; hints of coconut appear just after the swallow and are slightly more pronounced in the finish; still the roast and chocolate flavors dominate through and through

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with low to moderate carbonation; hides the alcohol well but watch out for the coconut floaties

Overall: I rather enjoyed this beer though I would prefer a little less roast and a little more coconut - the chocolate was just right
