Pours a cloudy-opaque jet black with huge tan head that disappates fairly quickly with a sticky lacing. Aroma is chocolate, roasted malt with pineapple resemblance. Apparently the coconut aromas do not survive the fermentation process since, in my experience, coconut beers at best have a subtle fragrance of coconut unless there is flavoring added.

The taste of Coconut Mudbank Milkstout is exceptionally smooth, lusciously sweet and chocolatey rich with a nutty finish. There are some fruit esters in the background adding to the complexity. Compared the the regular Mudbank Milk Stout, this coconut added version is not hugely different, but somewhat smoother. Given a choice I would go for the Coconut version, but considering the limited production, I will keep drinking the regular Mudbank Milk Stout quite happily.

Dark brown in color with deep amber hues on the edges of the glass. Poured with a thick, dense, dark beige foam that slowly reduced to a thick cap that left sheets of sugary, sticky lacings on the glass. Grainy, earthy, dark roasted malt aromas with dark molasses, and sweet cream and chocolate notes. Full bodied with a velvety smooth feel up front, a sticky sweet feel through the middle and a semi-dry finish. Dark roasted malt and dark chocolate up front followed by a sweet creamy maltiness. Light bitter hopiness through the middle with a continual underlying sweet creaminess. Hop bitterness peaks near end followed by sweet chocolate. Finished dryly with earthy, roasted malt and sweet creamy aftertaste. Although there was no definitive coconut aroma or flavor that I could detect, the coconut adds smoothness, creaminess and sweetness which made this pretty amazing.

I didn't want to bite on this one, not since that episode with Kona's coconut porter or whatever but since varity was slim at the Blue Dog I gave this beer a whirl. I'm glad I did beacause it was pretty good.
The coconut is not overpowering, you can barely smell it in the nose. And in the taste it compliments this fine stout as opposed to dominating.
It's very appealing in it's on right with a tight off white head on top of a black colored beer.
Aroma has sutle roastedness and hints of molasses or maybe licorise.
Taste finds a rich roasted malt with coconut that has amore toasted taste. You really don't notice the coconut until almost the swallow. Taste pretty sweet too.
Feels pretty smooth flowing pass the palate with no note problems.
I enjoyed this beer it was fun and taste really good.

Poured from a bomber...

Looks great. 1/2" head that settles to a nice foam ring around the inside of the glass.

Smells a bit sweet. Almost a creamy/ dairy scent.

Tastes sweet with a bitter finnish. The sweetness is very mellow, finishes out much more bitter. Tastes like toasted malts. The coconut flavor is not very obvious. Despite the lack of coconut taste defined by its name, it is still a great milk stout.

Very full bodied beer.

A deep brown/ black in color with 2 fingers of tan head, slow dissipation and creamy lacing left behind. Smells of roasted malts, sweet chocolate, molasses.. Not getting much coconut on the nose. Flavor wise, this beer is fantastic. Sweet milk chocolate up front with a nice roasted grain profile that builds up bitterness to even out the subtle coconut finish. This reminds me a lot of the coconut milk stout I made (toasted flakes and coconut milk).. It is very subtle in that coconut flavor but still enough trace of it to add flavor.
Medium in body with moderate carbonation. A lovely beer again, by neshaminy creek.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

22oz bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance
Nearly black with a half finger of tan head that dissipates quickly. There's a little light penetration around the edges.

Nose
Milk chocolate, coconut milk, roasted barley, licorice and medium roast coffee.

Taste
Coconut milk (that's somewhat tangy) and lactose sweetness. Roasted barley, milk chocolate and licorice. Lightly roast coffee with heavy cream and sugar. Heavier roasted notes trickle in towards the finish.

Mouthfeel
Medium bodied, creamy and smooth.

Overall
This is incredibly smooth and balanced. The coconut is kept fairly light, but reminds you that it's a Milk stout at heart.

A: Deep brown/nearly black, 1 finger of tan creamy head that quickly dissapates

S: Roasted malt upfront, light sweetness and some toasted coconut, hint of chocolate

T: Roasted maltiness nicely balanced with chocolate and lactose sweetness upfront. Yields to toasted coconut and finally a coffee bitterness balanced with coconut.

M: Creamy and slightly thick.

This stout is put together well, a good value for the price. Well balance but might benefit from a hint more coconut in the nose and on the tongue (at times it almost seems to not be present). More coconut came out in the smell and taste as it warmed. Would definitely recommend drinking this one fresh if you want more coconut.
