I wanted to enjoy this beer a few times before I gave it a full review. Upon try #3, I think I can give this beer the review it deserves.
A - This one pours a really deep mahogany with no real head and no retention; the carbonation towards the rim is really nothing but some kind of visual coconut cacophony that dissipates in to a coconut film when you try and finger it out of the glass.
S - Momi Hiwa is a perfect blend of sweetness, toasted coconut, dark boozy rum, sugarcane, chocolate, and vanilla.
T - So, this is where this beer shines and why I'll covet my stash: the flavors reflect the nose but the alcohol is muted; the flavors of dark rum marry with the sweetness of all the sugars and coconut flavors perfectly. This one whets with alcohol-soaked raisins, chocolate, vanilla, and that 'liquid Mounds' bar flavor this one was intended to taste like. FNA.
M - This beer feels quite smooth despite the 17%+ going on in there...the heat is negligible. It's creamy without being chalky or chewy and really drinks quite easily given the high abv and loads of flavor. I can see how someone might think it's too cloying, but I can't imagine what else you'd expect from a 17% rum-ba coconut porter. It's near perfect here.
O - Overall, this beer is incredible. I only wish I had more. The taste, the masking of alcohol, the general amazingness of this beer as either a dessert or late night sipper, the alcohol content without palate wrecking capability...this is an awesome beer from Avery.
