Pours black with a nice head, taste is sweet with coconut and chocolate without being bitter. As it warms the smell is addicting and the flavor only gets better. I have a hard time deciding whether this or the awakening is their best stout. But I usually order this one first because there are so many coffee beers out there and less that do a chocolate/ coconut with this type of balance. Just an awesome sweet stout, great brewery.

Ordered a 5oz pour of this at the brewery. Served in small tulip glass at the temperature you'd expect a pilsner to be poured at.

At first, it's a decent beer. Not groundbreaking, but certainly not bad. As it warms though, it begins to shine. A relatively low ABV stout that would be right at home in front of a fire on a cold winter's day, but still tasted good while sitting in shorts and a T-shirt on a warm Tampa afternoon.

The real standout to this beer is the nose. As it warms, it truly does smell like a chocolate cupcake fresh from the oven. My girlfriend, who claims to be overly sensitive to bitter tastes, ended up ordering her own glass of this when we visited a second time. If it were sold where I live, I would keep this on hand as something to offer as a dessert beer to beer geek friends and the politely curious alike.

Poured a black body with roasted malts aroma that also contained some dark chocolate. The beer itself is medium bodied, smooth, a little slick, roasted malts are there just enough for balance. Beer has a chocolate flavor to it, pretty sweet, hit my sweet tooth. Good beer, I enjoyed it, although not for beer drinkers who don't like sweet stouts or simple stouts (this is definitely not a complex stout).

Had on draft at the St. Pete Brass Tap on 03.01.14, the opening day of Tampa Bay Beer Week. Reviewed from notes.

Poured into a 10oz CCB Snifter.

Pours an inky, dull velvet black. deep crimson highlights can be seen in the refraction of light through the glass. A thin, 1 finger head of toffee colors head leaves minimal lacing.

Milk chocolate, burnt caramel and coconut are all accounted for on the nose.

This brew is a real treat to drink. It has a nice sweetness of chalky milk chocolate. Toasted coconut, comes through pleasantly in the finish.

Very nice mouthfeel, feels bigger than the ABV would indicate. Present on the palate, yet it remains smooth and silky to drink.

Another outstanding effort from a very talented brewer.
