1.2/5  rDev -63.7%
look: 3 | smell: 1 | taste: 1 | feel: 2 | overall: 1

Aroma - highly chlorophenolic with hints caramelized sugar.

Appearance - average clarity, small ring of krausen around the circumference of the glass, beer arrived to table with no head except for ring. Light amber in color.

Flavor - highly chlorophenolic, malt character is absent, some sweetness in the finish - as if unbalanced by hops, but not sweet enough to cover up the chlorophenolics.

Mouthfeel - too thin even for an American Blonde Ale. Under-carbonated.

Overall - very few beers I will push back, and I pushed this one back. I grew up in the town this beer was brewed in, and I find it to be an embarrassment to Sherman, Texas.

Clear dark golden pour with a white one-finger head. Very light aroma with hint of coconut and grain. Very creamy and light bodied. Taste has light and sweet coconut upfront backed by bread and caramel malt flavors.

By far the most and best coconut flavor of any beer I have had. Maui Coconut Porter is a great coconut porter, but it doesn't have nearly the coconut presence as The Chosen One. I have already had 2 growler fills and am looking forward to their new bottles.

The review above was based on having it on tap. I have since had it in a bottle and my score would be a 1.5. Essentially no coconut flavor. I have experienced this same thing - huge coconut on tap, none in the bottle - over 3 different tries on tap and 3 different bottles.

Quite tasty the first time I had this. Light golden color, nice creamy mouthfeel. The toasted coconut in the background compliments the base beer very well and does not over power it.
