Didn't pick up much coconut in the taste, only the smell. Aftertaste was a slightly bitter chocolate note.

Pours a deep dark brown or black with about two fingers of brownish head. Head breaks leaving a thin collar, some minor lacing.

Smell is led by cocoa and coconut, I also get a touch of leather, some coffee and roasts.

Flavor is much like the nose perhaps with the coconut leading over coffee. The chocolate is also there. There is a definite booze taste.

Feel is full weight and medium carbonation. Booze is there, and the finish is a bit syrupy.

I think this is a good beer, but I found that the coconut was not as promised. It's there, but not enough. Just a touch more and it would have scored better.

A: Jet black with really nice tan foamy head and very sticky lacing.
N: Coconut (Very Soft), chocolate, malt, burnt sugar, and vanilla.
T: Follows the nose, very nice coconut and chocolate notes with a burnt feel that is just amazing.
M: Medium
O: This has to be one of my favorite beers, just amazing stuff.

16oz can poured into a snifter. Dark black in color. Thick, dark, charred and roasty malts make up this big stout. Faint coconut and maple present, not as much as I would prefer from either. This is a sipper for sure.

Black thick motor oil with a creamy off white head. Sweet maple, coconut, molasses, bitter cocoa and faint coffee on the noise and palate. Heavy body with soft light carbonation. Moves over the palate easily and the charred coffee/bitter cocoa finish helps to keep it from being cloyingly sweet. A nice dessert beer.

A very nice imperial stout that offers nice notes of both the sweet maple syrup and the coconut. Enough amount of dark chocolate-ish bitterness to provide some balance to all the sweetness. Full mouthfeel with little carbonation.

This is a great example of a double stout with subtle sweetness of maple, a very dark brown color, and medium lacing for body. I would drink this beer as a main stay.

Many thanks to jvgoor3786 for this one!

A - Pitch black pour with dense toffee colored lacing, lots of legs on the sides of the glass.

S - Dark roasted malt aroma, smoke / char, some delicate maple aroma, and a little bit of alcohol booziness.

T - Dark chocolate roast, char and smoke, maple, for a brief moment get a hit of cherry (weird I know, but yes), coconut is present but buried, cocoa, and cocoa cream/vanilla. Overall, the dark malt and char rule this beer along with some acrid dark malt notes.

M - Full bodied and thick with velvety, syrupy texture on the tongue. Alcohol warming on the way down (initially) but eventually dies down after the palate adjusts.

O - Big and bold, dig the smokey char however it dominates the beer.

Who doesn't love New Beer Sunday? How CAN you not enjoy a CANportunity to really do some damage under the auspices of doing something New? Happy Even More Even More Evil Twin Sunday (Week 678) as I delve even deeper into this madness!

From the CAN: "Imperial Stout brewed with maple syrup and coconut extract added."; "A few times in the history of craft beer a highly praised beer rises beyond mortal stardom into a higher godly league, Usually the recipe to such heavenly drops is thick fudge-like body, pitch black color, amazingly overwhelming aromas of chocolate, coffee, dark fruits, muscovado sugar, maple syrup, coconut and obviously only made in limited amounts. People - this is the taste of rare!"

The Crack! of yet another 1 pint CAN was a daunting prospect all on its own so I CANducted a slow, gentle Glug into the awaiting glass with the assistance of a pre-positioned crane. Following that evolution, an in-glass swirl was on the day's menu, raising a brief finger of fizzy, foamy, dark-brown head with limited retention, quickly reverting to wisps. Color was an inky Black/Opaque (SRM = 44) not only NOT allowing any light penetration, but also turning away all comers! This beer was so black as to begin sucking light out of the room. Nose smelled like ... Mounds, anyone? Dark chocolate & coconut! I love Mounds; Almond Joy only occasionally. Mouthfeel was dense, thick, chewy, a dollop in my maw delivered via trebuchet. My new hobby is ballistic geology, so this fit right in! Oh, this is lovely. Brilliant! It would have been just the thing for the recently-past Valentine's Day (as long as your Valentine digs dark chocolate & coconut). Personally, I vet my Valentine's for allergies as I like nuts, peanut butter, coconut & a host of other triggers. Whoops, a digression. Back to it, straightaway! I have to admit that I was not getting maple syrup, or at least not as strongly as dark chocolate & coconut. For instance, if you were looking at this as a substitute for Founders' CBS, it would disappoint. For me, since I generally eschew sweets, this was perfect. I CAN do without the cloying sweetness of maple syrup. On the other CANd, I love coconut & will drink coconut water on ocCANsion. My, just thinking of coconut made my mouth water. Mmm. I remember in Nursery class when my redheaded g/f bit into a chocolate-covered bit with a coconut center. She looked even paler than usual just before she spit up! I was curious, so I took the discarded remainder for a taste. It was so unlike anything before at that age, but she was so nonplussed that she refused to kiss me for several days. 8=( Another digression! I may have a lie-down after this one. I remember when, and perhaps it is still the case, RISs were the sought-after style on this site, I was more into CANs and AIPAs, so I glossed over much of it. Now, I CAN underCANd the attraction. I usually do not like sweet anything & yet this was really enjoyable! That said, I did everything that I could (within reason), from letting it warm both in the glass & in my mouth to letting it chill a bit in the reefer, but I never got maple syrup. Oh well. It just needed to be said. Finish was semi-sweet (!), an amalgam of dark chocolate & coconut with the hard work of yeast, CANbining to make a beer in a CAN that I would ABSOLUTELY put in the cooler headed to the beach. This & Ten Fidy. On a rubber inflatable. Never to be seen or heard from again. Bruce Dern was ahead of his time at the end of "Coming Home". First, why off yerself for a Jody like Jon Voight? + f**k a Jane Fonda! Leave those two to their own devices! Hey, if yer gonna be one with the ocean, why not do it on a raft with a cooler fulla CANs that'll take the edge off until King Neptune places you in Davy Jones' Locker? That's how I'd do it. Come to think of it, maybe a Viking funeral ...
