Coconut Deth finally sees the light of day after a long stay as one of our most-requested Deth's Tar variants. We've taken a long look at different coconut products and techniques (and produced one excellent draft variant) and we're finally ready to let loose upon the world.

12 ounce can into a snifter. Canned 7/13/22, had 9/2/22.

Pours near black and opaque, with a brief head and a little lacing. Aromas of coconut, roasted malt, vanilla, char, some bourbon, some oak. Flavors of coconut, bourbon, roasted malt, vanilla, light oak. Smooth, a solid full body, well carbonated a touch on the high side.

Wonderful aroma and a great flavor, but the light fizziness interferes just a little. Has a good coconut presence; the barrels are a little light for a Deep Wood entry. But it’s very enjoyable.

This is just lovely. Everything I remember loving about Deth's Tar is still here. The silly chocolate, the warm caramel, the incredibly well integrated bourbon notes are seamlessly joined by a big coconut addition. It's a extra layer of sweetness to an already sweet beer but it works. So glad I got to try this.

2022 can. Poured at fridge temp. Pours pitch black with a small amount of light brown head. The nose is fantastic. Coconut, chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, toffee, a touch of cinnamon, and brown sugar. The taste is great. Roasted malts, gingerbread, cinnamon, brown sugar, toffee, bourbon, vanilla, and coconut. Lovely! The mouthfeel is thick and creamy. The aftertaste is mostly toffee and bourbon, although the ABV is barely noticeable. Really glad I got to try this!

Pours an effervescent mahogany with a pinky of mocha colored head. Minimal head retention & lacing

S: Barrel, dark fruits, cocoa, some boozeyness, not a lot

T: Cola notes, dark fruit, barrel rawness & toasted coconut at the edges, fairly dry. Dark chocolate surfaces as this beer warms, along with coconut & & Bourbon, flavors really open up. Finishes with plenty of toasty coconut, dark fruit, & dark chocolate

MF: Medium body, slight carbonation. warming; carbonation picks up as this beer warms through

ABV is very well hidden, but still a sipper. Easily one of the best Coconut beer's I've ever had

this is bomb, and enormous, not justbig for the sake of this though, more refined than so many of these at this strength, impressive overall, awesome and authentic coconut character all though it, good boubon and lots of it, i like everything about this, its not even all that sweet for being so flavorful, really well done. still never had the original, but this coconut edition is delicious. near black but not as viscous or sludge looking as many at this strength, it even has a decent little head on it for being in a barrel, an inch of belgian textured mocha colored foam, nice! nose is full of coconut, almost even before any of the beer parts, toasted for sure, slightly oily, natural as they come, but bold as can be too, espresso and dark barley roast behind it, warming whiskey heat and vanilla notes, dark bread, something english in the malt, and a hint of licorice too, all in service of the coconut. lots of barrel in the flavor, the char and the oak as bold as the bourbon and the vanilla nuance, sweet but not overly so, and strong but its not out of place here. the layers of the malt make this distinct to me, baked and hearty and not just roasty and bitter on the low end and sweet and caramelized in the middle, although i have no doubt that this was long boiled to concentrate it all. its also earthy and nutty and i think it lends itself well to all the coconut, which is palate coating but not obnoxious. it warms up well, is hotly alcoholic but it fits, and overall is pretty wonderful, surprisingly well refined for its size, definitely need to track down some other versions of this, including the original! well worth seeking out, tons of barrel, tons of cocunut, very little pretension...

Canned 07/13/22

a: pours pitch black with a frothy dark mocha colored head. Head rapidly recedes to a razor thin layer on the side of the glass.
s: intense aroma (can smell it easily a few feet away even) of oak & bourbon. The coconut is not as intense but provides a nice secondary aroma. The coconut does become more prominent as it warms.
t: This is where you really need to let this beer warm up as the coconut is mostly faint when cold. But when it warms, the coconut excels. Not artificial tasting in any way and not absurd levels of coconut flavor either. As Goldilocks would say, it's just right. Plenty of oak, bourbon & chocolate as well.
m: creamy, medium body. Slightly oily. Low to medium carbonation.
o: This one is a home run from Rev. The coconut is perfectly done here imo. Really hoping they make this a regular DW release. Well done, Rev!
