Notes: 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.

poured from a 12oz can into a TG MD snifter. pours a dense, oily black with a small dark brown foam cap which recedes into a thin collar around the rim of the glass. aromas of bourbon, oak, chocolate and coconut cream. big barrel on the taste with a chocolate/coconut finish. the coconut really only shows its face at room temperature. even slightly cold, i get a touch of sweetness but it’s basically deth’s tar until it gets to a warmer temp. once it does, it’s not a coconut bomb any means but considering the big barrel component this beer has going on, i’m not really complaining as anything more would detract from the beautiful oak barrel integration. it has a medium-full mouthfeel with a coconut slick, smooth finish. interesting and solid deth tar variant. i was expecting a bit more coconut, however, this still excels as a barrel-aged coconut imperial stout.

On tap at the Revolution Brewing Taproom in Chicago, IL.

This one pours a very dark black color, with a small head, and a little bit of lacing.

This smells like toasted bittersweet coconut, dark chocolate, vanilla, and oak.

I think Café Deth works a little bit better from this same brewery, but this still really nice. As expected, given Revolution’s preference for barrel over adjunct, the coconut here is done well – it’s very present, but it doesn’t dominate here – as there’s graham cracker, dark fruit, oak, vanilla, and dark chocolate all over this one.

This is thick, creamy, and not all that boozy. It’s a slow sipper, but delicious.

I really wouldn’t be surprised if I never had a bad Revolution beer ever again.

Pours a thick, viscous black color. Deep and dark. Thin, weak mocha colored head forms on the beer for just a moment before dissipating leaving no residual head on the beer. Aroma has strong, rich notes of roasted malts, vanilla, coconut, maple syrup, oak and bourbon.

Taste follows the nose with notes of roasted malts, coconut, cinnamon, vanilla, maple syrup, bourbon and oak. This is unbelievably delicious. The coconut is so well utilized in this. It completely avoids the pitfall of tasting like suntan lotion, instead giving off this lovely toasted coconut character with right notes of vanilla and cinnamon. Feel is thick, viscous and smooth. Rich and decadent. Moderate carbonation. Warming, semi-dry finish.

Overall this might be one of the best Deep Woods variants Revolution has ever released. It slaps as the kids say. I do not even really like coconut in beers and this is unbelievably delicious - just goes to show that Revolution can pull off just about anything.

Brownish black pour with a finger of mocha foam that fizzles away quickly to a thin ring around the edges. Aroma is fudgy, charred brownie crust. Coconut sweetness is present, but doesn’t dominate. As it warms up, it becomes more noticeable but never hits you over the head. Oaky bourbon and cinnamon in the periphery.

Familiar Deths Tar flavors of fudgy bourbon soaked brownies, toasted marshmallow, lingering oak in the aftertaste. Coconut is an accent, not the focus. Boozy warming heat, medium bodied with ample carb. Overall it’s tasty, though not heavy on the coconut. Thanks to Chris for this one!

On tap. Tan head. Black color.

Let this one warm up. Gets much better. The coconut shows a lot more. Fudge, vanilla, oak, bourbon, charred barrel. Smooth, warming, silky. Dark dried fruits. Chocolate cake batter.
