4.04/5 rDev +11.6%
Pours a dark brown color with a nice 2 finger cream colored head that leaves a decent lacing in a 16oz pub glass.
Smell is really nice. Malts, as you would expect of a beer so dark. I can barely make out the roasted coconut that the bottle seems to be so proud of.
Taste is of malts with that slight taste of coconut right at the end. Second taste really gets that coconut taste.
Mouthfeel is alright. Nothing exciting and not much carbonation.
Overall a great beer in my opinion. I really like the maltiness of this beer and the coconut taste is wonderful. I would like more of the coconut taste to come out but still, this is a great tasting beer.

3.41/5 rDev -5.8%
Bottling date of JAN1014 on bottle.
Cola brown body with a fizzy, ultimately thin head; rapid carbonation. Big sweet and nutty aroma; toffee and caramel with a tad bit of coconut. Deep roasted grain flavors right off and then it switches over to a bitter and slightly phenolic finish. Medium-light body; semi-dry finish.
A brown ale that looks good on paper but pretty much fails to live up to the hype. The malt and hop marriage doesn't quite gel and seems to have a slightly off-flavor in the aftertaste. The body feel lacks depth and feels watered down. Sure, you get some deep roasted grain flavors with some chocolate and cocoa notes, and there is a noticeable (though not overbearing) coconut element to the flavors, but things just don't seem to mesh well. Not bad but hardly a strong representative of a good brown ale.
