Had on tap. Taste is roasty malt, a bit of creamy sweetness and I detect a small touch of coconut. Good beer, but the body is a tad light for the style. That said, I would not pass this up.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a black color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, some roasted malts. Taste is smooth, roasted malts, some hints of chocolate. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall an easy drinking and solid beer.
