One of the best Oklahoma beers I've ever had.

Inky dark brew with a slight head. Aroma pulls you in, and the flavor whammies you hard. Exquisitely good. Lots of dark chocolate, coffee with a little bit of vanilla bean. There might be a tiny bit of coconut, but it is not the dominant element. Wonderful toasted bitterness that has the perfect counter-point to the richness. Pleasant aftertaste lingers on the palate.

Velvety smooth texture on the tongue. Gloriously good.

I will be drinking this more. It is SO good!

First thing i notice when pouring this beer is the fizz of the head. It just looks and sounds more like soda pop than it does beer! the head completely disappears after only seconds of being poured. The color is fairly dark and ruby brown around the edges. i can see through it when held to the light.

mmmm, a lot going on in the smell. Dark roast coffee/expresso smell, seems deep and rich.

I get a lot of toasted malt, a sort of burnt smokeiness, and not much else. finishes very dry. I don't taste any coconut until the back end and i think i can pick out what tastes like coconut milk, very faintly.

highly carbonated, medium full, not much texture to it. I get some kind of creamy smoothness though a lot like coconut milk, interesting.

This goes down really easy like a typical American stout. Not really anything special, however.

A: ½” light tan head. Fell quickly to a ring. Left little lacing along the glass. Near black body.

S: Coconut, vanilla, dark malts.

T: Bitter dark malts: coffee, dark chocolate, and roast – with some vanilla, sweetness, and coconut bringing balance.

M: Medium+ body. Medium-light carbonation. Somewhat smooth. Lightly bitter finish.

O: Alcohol hidden well. Nicely bitter. Nice brew.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle.

The beer pours a dark brown color with brownish-red highlights and a tan head. The aroma is roasted malt with some chocolate malt notes. The flavor is chocolate malt, burnt malt, smoke and some coconut. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A nice stout and the best beer I have had from this brewery.

Not much of a stout fan, but I like coconut and like to try brews from young breweries. So it caught my eye on a trip to Oklahoma and the mandatory side trip to Byron's Liquor Warehouse in Oklahoma City.

Poured into a 20th anniversary Sam Adams pint glass at the appropriate temperature gave a dark brown color and a nice head with good retention and lacing. Smell was toasted malts and a hint of mesquite. Taste was balanced with a delicious creamy and smooth feel. Definitely a drinkable beer on occasion, but not for a session or everyday. I would recommend this brew to folks who enjoy stouts and porters.

Beer poured a strong coffee color with a small tan head that disapates quickly. You get coconut and some vanilla like a coconut cream pie. The up front flavor is coconut with dark chocolate in the background but a little watered down. The feel is a little more carbonated than most cream stouts. Over not a bad beer.

I didn't expect much from this small Oklahoma brewery and let me tell you I was far from disappointed. It poured a deep black with a very thin tan head into a snifter. The nose is very sweet, and it has a lot of vanilla coming off of it. The first sip is what a cream stout should be. Creamy, sweet, loads of vanilla, and sugar that was almost like a creme brulee. The coconut was muted, and had more of a toasted taste to it. The finish is smooth, sweet, and very easy going down. Like I said I was not expecting much, but got a lot in return.

Poured black with ruby highlights around the edges, with 2 finger light tan head.

Aroma has a slight chocolate smell, roasted barley, and a bit of an earthy smell that I am going to say is actually the coconut.

Taste is really good with the roasted barley and decent amount of sweetness with the coconut playing a supporting role, but I don't think that I would have ever picked it out blindly, but it adds to the sweetness. Also getting chocolate and coffee flavors.

Mouthfeel is decent, it might be a little thinner than I would expect, but it actually has a nice smoothness that I really like.

Overall, this is a pretty good beer, I was a little hesitant after have some of their other offerings and thinking they came on a little to strong, but i was surprised with this one. The biggest turn off for me is the price, everything seems to be a bit pricier than I would expect from a local brewery.

Pours mahogany with 2 fingers of fast falling mocha colored head. No head retention or lacing

S: Coffee, vanilla & cocoa, stays strong throughout

T: Coffee, vanilla & a hint of toasted coconut, plus slight woody hoppyness up front. Coffee, a touch of vanilla coke, dryness & roastyness as this warms, some slight raisin & cherry notes as well. Finishes slightly roasty with coffee notes & a touch of mocha & slight smokeyness. On the verge of a 4.0

MF: Awfully light bodied for a 7.0 ABV beer, smoothly carbonated

This is a pretty nice offering, not as good as some other coconut beers I've tried, but I would buy this again if in the mood for a mocha tasting stout

22oz bottle from Sprayberry Bottle Shop (Marietta, GA). 7.99. No bottling date. Served in a goblet.

Gushes apon opening. Pours a deep cola brown with three fingers of tan head that fades amazingly fast. A thin halo of bubbles around the edge lingers as the brew continues fizzing throughout but leaves absolutely no lace.

True to the description I detect a rather pleasant toasted coconut and mild vanilla aroma. Also notes of cocoa, dark malt roastiness, faint dark fruit and a strange cola scent. Sweet overall and strangely appealing.

Interesting blend of flavors. Cocoa, toasted coconut, toast, mild roasty malt, subtle-but present vanilla, vague molasses, traces of tart (but far from overly-so) dark fruit and a little brown sugar. No alcohol detected. A pretty nice blend actually.

The body is thin and fizzy like a soda. The carbonation is active but this doesn't feel like beer on the palate at all. Toasted coconut, chocolate and semi-burnt malts linger for a drawn out finish.

I'm quite surprised here. My expectations were tempered by it's tepid reception in the reviews and the shoddy bottle/label presentation (seriously one of the worst labels I've ever seen) but I had to try it based on it's adjunct additions. The aroma and blend of flavors was actually quite nice. The appearance leaves a bit to be desired but ultimately it's the body that is a turn-off. Beer should not feel like a Coke going down. I'd probably revisit this one (possibly regularly) at a $3-5 price point but it doesn't have enough in it's corner to justify a repeat at $8.
