Everything prior to this out of Fiddlehead has been outstanding, but this one missed the mark for me. Pours a dark brown, rather small, light tannish head that disappears pretty quick.

The aromas coming out of it are nice, it lets on to a subtle coconut flavor underwritten by vanilla and some very mild spices. The initial third of the beer was lovely, a soft coconut flavor accented by exactly what you smell initially. However, the deeper I got into the beer, the more overwhelming the coconut aroma and flavor to the point of not even finishing it, simply way too much. I like coconut, it felt good in the mouth, just a little light on carbonation, I don't even think it was too much coconut so much as not enough of the other flavors, it wasn't over-flavored, just over coconut'ed. All in all a disappointing beer from Fiddlehead, time to pop open another Second Fiddle to fix their image in my mind
