From bomber bottles on two occasions. Should have been three but one bomber bottle stored in my cool cellar exploded after several weeks, leaving a widespread sticky mess. The second bottle gushed like crazy, making a mess even though I was cautious and, I thought, prepared. The taste seems to confirm that this is a contaminated batch.
Much better when fresh but still recommend AVOID!

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

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.

Picked up this beer in Tulsa- tried to drink some locals when I was there. This is okay- you do get some coconut notes in the beer, and I've always been a fan of that flavor in a stout or porter. The problem is that it's a bit thin, both in flavor and body. There is a also slightly sour and dusty notes as well which detract from the coconut notes. There is a hint of toasted coconut on the mid palate which is nice. The aroma has a bit of bubblegum which also is a distraction. Off balance a bit. Keep trying here- when done right this a great combination.

Pours a dark brown with khaki colored head and LOTS of it. Took about 5 mins to finish the pour. Smell is off, synthetic like coconut and dare I say brett, but something is off. Took 2 sips and drain poured it. Terrible beer. It was off from pour to drain pour.

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.

T - Follows the nose chocolate and coffee flavors with maybe a hint of coconut

M - This beer has kinda a thin body with medium carbonation to it

D - I like this beer quite a bit but the lack of head and thin body unfortunately hurt this otherwise good beer its still a beer thats worth checking out

Poured into a pint glass this dark brown, bordering on black, stout produces a puny, fizzly, soda-like head, which leaves absolutely no evidence behind as it disappears.

Light roast on the nose with some yeasty fruitiness and a faint solvent character.

The taste is amped up a notch from what the aroma indicated. Roasted with a definite chocolate note and a background of coffee and light smoke. Not getting much in the way of the vanilla or coconut, but then again this may not be an entirely bad thing, and I've never had a beer with coconut so I'm not even sure I know what flavor profile to look for. The fruitiness from the yeast isn't far behind the roast and neither is that solventy character.

Well, this may be the best one that Battered Boar has released so far. I'm not sure whether they have cleaned up some of the off-flavors I've encountered before or whether the dark malts are just masking them better. Either way, they seem to be much less prominent in the Coconut Cream Stout.

Poor effort.

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.

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.

GLASS: Sam Adams Perfect Pint Glass
TEMP: Cellared @ approx 50 degrees

This pours a nice, deep, shade of brown. It has some quite nice ruby highlights which are visible when backlit. It forms a massive head, which causes me to have to pour this beer into the glass in four different 'sessions'. The head recedes away to nothing though, very quickly. Lacing is minimal and very slick.

Lots of roasted malt notes shine through. Good hints of dark chocolates and coffees. Very mild traces of fresh coconut can be found, if you look for it.

The taste follows the nose, pretty much 'to the letter'. Sadly.

This is barely medium-bodied. It is heavily carbonated. Not a really good combo, for the style.

It's decently drinkable, but it tastes nothing like you'd expect it to taste from the name/style. That knocks its points down.

I just bought this 4-pk a couple of nights ago. There is no date on this bottle or package. I wish I knew when this was bottled. I tried to check the website, but it's just a 'splashpage' right now saying that their new website is coming July, 2010. It's now a couple of weeks into September...
I looked back at the reviews here, the first one is from back in January. I'm going to give them the benefit of the doubt and presume that this is at least that old. I'll watch for it again over the next few months, to re-review.
