Kontiki Bastard is rich, complex, and most of all delicious. Our brewers took our Kentucky Bastard Bourbon Barrel-Aged Russian Imperial Stout and added heaps of toasted coconut and cacao nibs. The result? Liquid chocolate goodness with a kick of roasty coconut comfort.

500 ml bottle served fairly well chilled into a Chimay chalice. A brewery purchase for around $14 CDN.

Appearance - An ominous black color is poured, with a dark tan finger of head, modest retention and minimal lacing.

Smell - Bourbon, vanilla, hints of coffee and roasty a small amount of coconut and the bourbon vanilla combo are the only big differences from the base beer.

Taste - Big and roasty again, quite bitter with coffee, bourbon and vanilla again. Subtle bit of coconut languishes behind the other flavors readily apparent in this brew.

Mouthfeel - Slick and thick, velvety with lots of booze at the back of the throat. Pretty easy to drink.

Overall - Well Kontiki Bastard was an interetsing concept, I feel there needs to be a little more coconut in the nose and on the tastebuds to distinguish itself from the other "Bastard" beers in Nickel Brook's lineup. Very similar to the Old Kentucky Bastard which will be a great thing for some and slightly disappointing for others.
