On-tap at Hunahpu's Day 2012.

A - Pours darker brown, cream-colored head, thin ring on top.

S - Amazing nose, to say the least. Coconut, coffee beans, chocolate, light roast, expresso, burnt sugars, and vanilla. You just want to hold this up to your nose and breath...yes, that good.

T - Not quite as good as the nose, yet still excellent. Coconut, expresso, roasted coffee beans, vanilla. For 6.5%, it drinks very cream-like, which is really cool. The milk chocolate notes are quite as evident on the palate, yet still very good. Finish is toasted coconut and chocolate roast.

M - Medium body, rich and smooth, light carbonation, creamy finish.

O - One of my favorites on-tap at Hunahpu's Day. I was left thinking, "what the hell just happened there." Definitely a standout on any tap list, and truthfully, one of the top beers there.

On tap at Funky Buddha, super psyched to find this on the menu.

Beer pours a near-black with a fluffy tan head. The smell on this one is ridiculous, coconut, chocolate and coffee come together just perfectly. The taste is almost as impressive and follows the aroma. The balance is wonderful, as the coconut and coffee stand out at first and the chocolate shows up in the finish. Mouthfeel is a little thinner than I would like, but that's often a common complaint I have with porters. It certainly doesn't detract from the beer at all. Overall this beer is unique and fantastic, just the kind of thing Funky Buddha is known for. It's also very drinkable for such a crazy sounding beer- I instantly ordered another.

Had during Brewvival 2012! Served from tap into a Brewvival sampler imperial pint. Poured pitch black with a half finger brown head that subsided to a minimal amount slowly. Maintained good lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, vanilla, coffee, roasted malt, coconut, and chocolate. The flavor was of sweet malt, vanilla, coffee, roasted malt, white chocolate, and a hint of coconut. It had a medium feel on the palate with medium carbonation. Overall this was a very good brew. When I saw this one come up on the board at Funky Buddha's booth, I kind of batted my eyes at it thinking it was a Winter Warmer based on the name. But WOW! I'm glad I went back and had a go at it. This thing was insane as far as the flavors and aromas coming off of it. I don't know how they got the white chocolate flavor to stick in the flavor, but definite kudos to that one. A definite must try if you get the opportunity, which I hope to get again in the future.

Had this beer the night it was released. Actually, I had a few of them.

The summary is simple. Imagine an andes mint, coffee, and an american porter. Taste is awesome, smell is great. Poured into a snifter with a little bit of head. Left a little bit of lacing as I drank through the glass.

Smell was great and it matched what the beer tasted like perfectly.

Light and smooth mouthfeel. Very balanced with the right amount of carbonation.

Great beer, which I could have gotten a growler to go. Check it out when you can.

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

Appearance: Arrives at the bar with a tiny mocha head that sits atop the snifter of black liquid and leaves a few strands of lace here and there

Smell: Coffee and coconut with a vague chocolate element

Taste: The coffee and coconut flavors dominate the opening, with undertones of white chocolate developing by mid-palate; the bitterness of the coffee seems supplemented by the hops as it balances out some of the sweetness in the brew through the finish, though coconut elements can continue to be discerned in the aftertaste

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with low to moderate carbonation; just a tad flabby

Overall: Very interesting flavor combination (of course, that's what Funky Buddha is known for); while I have a minor quibble with the mouthfeel, this is an outstanding beer
