On tap at Churchkey. Served in a mini snifter. Pours near black with a thin head and a few spots of lacing. The nose carries heavy, heavy chocolate along with a touch of underlying roast. Mild coconut in the background. Then more chocolate. Hersey-syrup-type chocolate. A bit cloying as it warms a bit. Flavor is more heavy chocolate with some underlying coconut character. Some roasted malt beneath. This is a hard one to score as there really isn’t much underlying beer; it’s really heavy chocolate, though not what you’d get from chocolate malt. I can’t knock the nose too much, as it was really wonderful, but have taken that into account in my overall score.

On-tap, served in tulip glass

The body sits an ink black with just a faint bit of brown around the bottom edge when held up to the light. The cap was a khaki color, creamy, and never truly receded. Thick, creamy sip marks line the inside of the glass.

Notes of coconut, creamy white chocolate, and coffee beans. It smells like a mounds bar in a glass.

Super creamy white chocolate hits the palate first, before a wave of sweet, toasted coconut. The coffee bean flavor comes out in the finish, creating an interesting turn on the palate from sweet coconut to acrid coffee beans. They didn't transition all that well. The coffee and dark roast finish is somewhat short lived.

Full body, smooth and creamy. Carbonation is on point.

The transition from coconut to coffee is a little sharp and the finish doesn't linger all that much. However, this wins points for creativity. The combo of white chocolate and coconut is fantastic. This is a must try for anyone out there.

Served in a stemless goblet.

Big thanks to Preismj for sharing this bottle!

My first foray into Funky Buddha after hearing an awful lot o' chatter. This stuff pours a deep black-brown topped by a half-finger of dark tan foam. The nose comprises sweet cocoa, coconut, coffee, light molasses, and a kiss of almond. The end result is Christmas happiness in a glass. Up my nose. Something like that. The taste thankfully brings in more of the same, along with a toastier coconut component and the addition of some nutty toffee, completing the image of holiday frivolity made manifest in deliciousness. Oh yeah. The body is a hefty-leaning medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a generally smooth feel. Overall, a downright damn-good beer, one I wish I had many, many more bottles of for future enjoyment. This beer was the highlight of an evening that had more than its fair share of strong contenders. Damn. Get some!

Tap at CK. Pours a deeper clear ruby. Massive off white foam. Big rocky retention. Nose is out of this world. Super rich espresso, coconut hazelnut frappacino. Taste is a little weak but this is not an imperial stout. Thinner than expected with rich frappacino character. The rich Dunkin Donuts iced coffee nose and taste is uncanny but still a bit contrived for me. Could simply be not even a beer if it were given to me blind. Delicious. Tangy lactic palate. Sharper coffee finish. Liked this one a lot. But more of a Starbucks concoction than a porter. 6/7/2012 9/5/7/3/16=4.0

Draft at Prohibition Taproom in Philadelphia, PA.

Pitch black with a one finger light beige head that quickly settles into a lasting ring. Spotty lacing left behind.

Sweet malt aroma with a nice balance of silky chocolate, coconut and subtle roast. The chocolate presence is really strong with hints of milk and dark cocoa as well as some lactic cream. There's also a good bit of coconut/coconut milk in the nose that makes this beer smell kind of like a candy bar. It's slightly in danger of smelling artificial but there's a nice roasted malt presence underneath. Hints of robust coffee, toast, oatmeal and toffee round things out and make it feel more like a beer than a milkshake.

Medium bodied with a nice balance of sweet chocolate, coconut and roasted malt notes. Very sweet up front with lots of silky chocolate and lactic cream. The chooclate is so prominent that it almost tastes like a syrup was added. This is nicely complimented by a coconut milk presence that lingers over the roasted notes Ito a sweet and slightly dry finish. There's a nice roasted malt presence underneath that cuts some of the sweetness and makes it tastes more like a porter. Some robust coffee bean flavor along with dark chocolate, oatmeal, caramel and toffee. Still really sweet but just enough roast to keep it from becoming overwhelming and one dimensional. Another really nice beer from Funky Buddha.

Appearance is dark brown with some light passing through at the edges. Nose is phenomenal, strong notes of coconut and tons of coffee which pair perfectly together and make for one of the best aromas I have exprerienced. The taste delivers exactly what the nose promises. Tons of coconut, a bit of nut character, coffee is a bit toned down on the taste. Mouthfeel is medium with mild carbonation. Overall... This one is amazing, thanks to preismj for sharing this amazing brew.

A: dark, dark brown. Almost black but not quite there just yet. Forms a thin dark head that reduces even further to a thin surface coating.

S: tons and tons of dark roasted coffee beans, then there's a note of toasted coconut, coconut that's been toasted too far. But the aroma is just works.

T: dark and roasty. Roasty coffee, roasty malts, and toasted coconut. Very mild sweetness. Finishes with a stronger coconut flavor that just seems to grow on the finish.

M: on the heavier side of medium. Mild to moderate coffee bitterness. Medium carbonation.

O: a very interesting beer. Typically I don't like these weird combinations, but this one works and works well.

Bomber courtesy of Ryan and shared with Kyle. Thank you very much for this opportunity!

Dark brown pour with a thin thread of tan cover.

Slightly acrid big bean roast. Huge coffee notes, coconut, sugar, and dark chocolate bark.

Wow...if this beer set out to be a bitter dark chocolate coconut bomb along the vein of a Mounds bar, then mission accomplished. Coffee takes a back seat through much of the taste, with only a coffee breath inducing finish to return the favor. Aftertaste lingers for a LONG while.

From somewhat cold out of the fridge to near room temperature, this beer holds its flavor profile tremendously well. Like no other beer to date and one that is simply unique.

Thanks so much Ryan!

On draft at Churchkey in D.C.

The beer is dark brown with a half inch of beige head. The aroma brings roast, coconut, chocolate. The flavor is a beautiful blend of coconut and chocolates. Delicious. A must try if you enjoy these flavors. Medium bodied and creamy. Lingering sweet coconut flavors. A terrific beer - would love to have again.

Being a coconut fan, this beer was a winner for me, as I could actually really taste coconut in this as opposed to other beers I've had with coconut in it. Had on tap at the church key event on 6/7.

The beer pours and looks very pretty, it is brown with tints of red on the edges, with a healthy head and plen of lacing too.

The smell is amazing, there is just a ton of toasted coconut and coffee/espresso too that is just slightly roasty, more on the sweet side but not in a cloying way at all. Some chocolate too.

The taste is also amazing, with more roast than the smell but just as much sweet coconut and some nice chocolate that hits later in the taste, it almost feels like drinking an almond joy but in a good way again. Espresso too.

The beer is a little thinner than id like but overall good with a nice roast at the finish.

Excellent and unique beer!

From tap to snifter at ChurchKey DC on 6/7/12
*From notes

A: Things start well, as this certainly looks good. Dark leather brown with a creamy quarter finger head. A dense and thick collar follows.

S: Coconut coffee. Pretty awesome stuff, to be honest. It's slightly green to a point, yet it's elegant and really well put together.

T: Minty up front, yet it quickly evolves into fresh coconut, which attacks the mid. Some charred cocoa, grass, and a touch of coffee round out the finish. Like a liquid Mounds bar.

M: Bummer. Undercarbonated and a bit thin. Something cleary is wrong with the way these FB kegs were filled or tapped.

O: Maybe my favorite Funky Buddha offering of the night, sans SNACK ATTACK! This is very elegant, and a beer that I could have multiples of without getting sick of it's schtick. Easily recommended, a really solid offering from South Florida.
