Pours a black color with a big, spongy beige head.

Smells of earthy cocoa nibs, bakers chocolate, prunes and toasted coconut bark.

Has a smooth mouthfeel, representing a light bodied beer, which turns a tad mineralic during the finish.

Tastes of toffee, ground coffee, chocolate cake and a note of earth. Appears very well balanced but a bit tamed on the palate, with the coconut not only adding to the sweetness of the beer, but also giving more depth to the earthy and dry qualities in this. Finishes heavier on the coconut, mellow, floral and tropical sweet, with enough malts to maintain its pleasant balance.

Solid, a bit muted on the nose with a well working flavor foundation, in which the coconut adds just a small note actually.

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.
