An outstanding chocolate coconut stout. It's full flavored with a relatively low ABV; the coconut and chocolate are present, but not overwhelming. Unlike many other flavored stouts where the flavors completely overwhelm the taste of the beer, this is supremely well balanced and still tastes like a stout, with plenty of roasted malt and a touch of hop. Just outstanding.

A little thin for an oatmeal stout.

This one pours a fairly dark brown, nearly black, with a small head, and no lacing.

Smells like light coconut, fudgy chocolate, and a hint of roasted malt.

I'd definitely like a bit more coconut here, but the flavor there is nice anyway, nice and toasty, with sweet milk chocolate, and just the smallest hint of roasted malt. It's a simple dessert beer but it's executed pretty well.

This is light bodied, pretty creamy, but not thin, luckily.

This is a nice little beer. It's nothing that'll knock your socks off, but it was quite enjoyable.

Had on tap. Pours opaque, black in color with 1/3 inch head. Taste is huge shredded, toasted coconut flakes, light coffee, and light toasted chocolate malt. Medium bodied and sweet, but never overly so. I have had several coconut beers and this one is the beer that most closely resembles liquid Mounds candy. A treat of a dessert beer. Will have to find this again. Best beer from Wormtown to date.

Been waiting to try this for many years. On tap at Rail Trail in Hudson. Looks like a stout. Has a great nose of roasted malt and toasted coconut. Same with the flavor but more coffee and chocolate. Finish is superb without a watery feel or milky character like many stouts have. Well done!

From 06/11/15 notes. 22 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.

Pours a dark brown, almost black color, with one finger of tan head and moderate carbonation evident. Roasted malts, milk and dark chocolate, coconuts, toasted malts, oak, cream, vanilla, and cocoa. Medium body and moderate carbonation, smooth.

Overall a really good oatmeal stout; would love to have it again.
