Beautiful black pour with a light tan head, my expectation (from the name of the beer) was the aromas would feature coconut in some way.

Nope. No coconut that I can discern at all. The base beer is nice - good char, dark chocolate, but zero coconut. I don't care for coconut in "real life," but I love it in beer, so I'm disappointed it doesn't make an appearance in this.

Pours dark brown. Foamy, short, tan head fades fast.

Smells toasted coconut, roast malt, caramel and chocolate.

Tastes roast Malts, dark chocolate and toasted coconut. Followed by light earthiness and light coffee. Finish is Semi dry with coconut linger. Medium body and creamy lower carbonation.
