12 oz. can poured into a nonic style pint glass.

This one pours a little lack luster, not much life to the half finger tan head that was gone in less than a minute. The body is root beer in color and doesn't let much light through. The nose isn't very strong but the dark roast and sweet cocoa aromas are nice. The taste is a little more robust with the same dark roasted malts and sweet cocoa. The bitterness is low but within the style. Unfortunately I didn't get any coconut or hop flavors coming through. Bodywise it's a bit on the light side for the style with the carbonation a little high.

Not bad but seems a little mundane. I am keeping an eye out for some fresh/er cans in hopes of a better result.

Poured out a dark, dark brown color with a small, tan head of foam. It smelled of roasted malt and a subtle coconut aroma. Good roasty flavor, mild coconut and some dark chocolate.

Pours a dark almost black brown with a rich tan head that fades quickly. Toffee aroma, a little burnt sugar, and some grain. Excellent balanced taste: dark cocoa, toasted coconut, burnt sugar, dark fruit, and a slight metallic tang. Mouth just a little thin. Flavors linger nicely. Well done!
