The Two Brothers Brewery is just a few miles from my house, so I went there to see what was new and I found this 1 pint 6 oz. bottle of chocolate/coconut ale. Couldn't wait to get it home and try it. No freshness date.

The beer poured a clear caramel color with a big creamy 3-finger head that lasted several minutes and left an incredible amount of lacing.

Very weak nose. Where's the chocolate and coconut?

This beer actually tastes good... BUT... it's not what it's supposed to be. It has a slight caramel sweetness to it, some bready malt, a little nuttiness, and a dash of cocoa powder. Hops are earthy and mild at just 18.1 IBU's. What it doesn't have is any coconut flavor whatsoever and the chocolate isn't very pronounced either. It still tastes good, but as a chocolate.coconut ale it's disappointing.

Light bodied with moderate carbonation.

Nice, easy drinking beer, but disappointing as a chocolate/coconut ale.

From: Binny's, Schaumburg, IL
Date: None on bottle, 12/2013 release
Glass: Founders snifter

Two Brothers plays on expectations with a "chocolate coconut ale," that seems to suggest a seasonal stout, but what is presented is an amber ale with little chocolate and no coconut. With sweetness as its defining character, the beer brings in comparisons to caramel, toasted bread and nuts, slightly woodsy hops, ethanol and just a dash of cocoa. In all, this comes across as a fairly agreeable dark amber ale, just don't expect chocolate or coconut. My only complaint is that the beer is about 2% higher in ethanol than it needs to be: a malt profile like this can be had at around 5%, and in the case of this beer, the excess begins to poke through the other, more desirable flavors. Not a bad beer (and I would rate this higher if it didn't profess to have chocolate and coconut in it), but can see how others are disappointed if they were expecting a truly chocolate and coconut-like ale.

Pours a 2cm tall head of off-white colored foam, made up of small-sized bubbles, creating a frothy appearance. Retention is above average at around 1.5 minutes, the foam fading to a thin ring around the perimeter of the glass and a medium-sized island of lacy foam atop the body of the beer. Lacing is good, with some large patterns and medium numbers of dots clinging to the sides of the glass. Body is a dark amber brown color, with light bringing out mineral-like chestnut brown hues. Carbonation visible through the transparent body, moderate in number, high in activity.

Aroma is mild, but present/pleasant, of medium-dark caramel, a bit of toasted bread, and light cocoa.

Overall flavors of light to medium-dark caramel-like sweetness, toasted nuts and bread, very light cocoa and woodsy hop character, and modest ethanol behind all else. Front of palate tastes sweetness from light to medium-dark caramel, a bit of toasted bread, and very light cocoa and woodsy hop character. Mid-palate tastes quite sweet, as from medium-dark caramel, a bit of toasted bread and nuts, light cocoa, slight woodsy hop bitterness, and mild ethanol (particularly as the beer warms). Back of palate is still sweet with medium-dark caramel and a bit of toasted bread, but there's also a modest increase in the woodsy hop bitterness and a touch of spicy, anise-like ethanol. Aftertaste of sweetness as from light caramel, toasted bread and nuts, a bit of woodsy hop bitterness, and faint cocoa.

Beer is medium to medium-light in body, with carbonation of medium to medium-low intensity, resulting in a foamy (3/5) and underlying smooth (2/5) mouthfeel. This feels fine for the beer, heavy enough to sip or light enough to drink more aggressively if desired. Closes dry, with substantial stickiness clinging to the palate and lips.

look: 3.25 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Appearance is a golden hue with white head and nice lace. Nose has notes of dry lager yeast, dry grain notes, light chocolate. The nose is rather muted. Taste starts with non descript malt character followed by some roast, toasted nut, and a touch of cocoa on the finish. Mouthfeel is fizzy and light bodied. Not too impressed by this one.

Serving type: on-tap
