3.61/5  rDev -5.5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Deep dark brown with a modest head in the big Duvel tulip. Velvety mouthfeel with a light but creamy carbonation. Pleasant nose of faint coconut.

Quite chocolatey and the bitterness tastes of coffee. Not overly flavored and the coconut is not very strong. Warm and roasted malt is dominant with some little burnt sugar. Slightly sweet but the hoppy edge is quite evident.

Quite drinkable and an interesting variation on the range of flavored stouts. This is less From the 16 oz can purchased at Special Brews in Lynnwood, WA.

16oz can poured into a pair of pilsner glasses. No canned on or best by dates.

Pours black with almost no head. Smell is yeasty, slightly chocolatey, maybe a whiff of coconut that I wouldn't pick out if the word wasn't in front of me.

Taste is very sweet, I'd classify this as a milk stout based on the sweetness. Still mostly chocolatey. Good, but not very exciting.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, slightly gritty. Overall, good, but not great.

Poured into a Reuben's Brew snifter. Pours a very dark mahogany brown, appearing opaque in the glass, with a thick light brown head athat dissipates to a thin film and ring around the glass with light slippery lacing. Nice aroma of toasted malt, light chocolate, hints of vanilla nd coconut. Flavor is semi-sweet toasted malt, vanilla with very light suggestions of coconut and chocolate. Nice moderately creamy body with good mouth feel. A very pleasant and well integrated sweet stout with a deft handling of the coconut and other flavors. I enjoyed this quite a bit. Good depth of flavor for a low ABV stout.

A-Black in the glass, one finger off white head.

S-Some roasted malt, toasty notes from the coconut but not that much, could be more (thinking Proprietor's) tad bit of dark chocolate.

T-Rather roasty with some moderate coconut. I still wish the coconut was more present. Dark chocolate, not much coffee.

M-Lighter to medium, not much carbonation and slightly watery.

O-A good stout, the coconut goes well. This one could have used a little more but still yummy.

Thanks to Tieman for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours a clear crimson-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, and toasted coconut aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa and slight coconut flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that has a better coconut presence in the aroma in my opinion.

Poured from 16oz tall can into a pint glass. Note that the full name of this beer is Maylan's Coconut Stout.

Appearance: rich, dark brown hue; nearly black even when held up to the light. Head is a thin finger of creamy dark-tan foam which dissipated somewhat quickly.

Smell: very chocolatey aroma with a nice, "creamy" kind of character. I don't know how better to describe it -- sort of sweet, maybe, but not quite like milk chocolate. It's just a nice, clean, chocolate stout aroma. I like it.

Taste: at first very mild, but the flavors develop over time across the palate. There's chocolate and coconut along with a little bit of coffee. A very well-balanced beer, although a little astringent toward the end.

Mouthfeel: creamy, smooth and excellent. The body is not particularly thick, but something about the carbonation and texture yield a wonderfully smooth experience.

Overall: a very drinkable stout. I could down plenty of these.

3.73/5  rDev -2.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: Poured a deep, deep brown with great carbonation leaving a small dirty white head. The head retention was moderate and lacing was spotty.

S: Pretty tame actually. I had this at room temp and then another can at 55F. Some coconut and cocoa present but lacking in aroma

T: A nice milky cocoa presence upfront with a light roast. Fresh coconut appears, but ist not over the top, pretty subtle yet pronounced. The finish has a slight lingering toasty, bittering presence and the coconut has fallen off

M: Medium body, well carbonated, great feel, a slight astringency

O: Good beer.
