Thanks to Bankhead for sharing this one at mrbubbler's tasting.

Bottled 6/4/14.

Pours a murky dark brown with a foamy tan head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, brown sugar, cocoa, candied coconut, and rum aromas. Taste is much the same with toasted coconut, brown sugar, toffee, and rum flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of wood bitterness and an alcohol kick on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with the coconut and rum coming through a bit better in the taste to me.

Serving type: bottle.

I loved this beer. I thought it was better than Prop. Huge coconut and vanilla with a nice chocolate note, the rum barrels add a great sweetness.

this is fantastic! i think im actually enjoying this better that bcbs prop! maybe if i had it side by side id notice a quality difference but going from memory this one goes down much better and intergrates the coconut seemlessly. if you cant get prop track this down!
