This is one of the greatest brews I’ve ever had. Poured inside of a cold chilled beer glass. It’s appearance is of a dark brown tint almost as of it were a soda. The top of the head just lingers there and is smooth. There seems to be an essence of chocolate coffee and coconut present. Goes down smooth and refreshing coconut is present in the aftertaste. The top starts to wear off as the minutes go by it has a sweet sutle taste. The aroma is majestic especially when your consuming it it has a wonderful smell. The taste is of a true malt feel as refreshing as this brew is its extremely potent with a 6.8% ABV. This is is one of the finest brews in the State of Michigan if you happen to see it grab it I promise you!! It won’t ever disappoint.

Canned date of 10/11/17

Appearance - Pours cordovan brown in color with a light tan, half finger width head. Fair retention results in a thin, broken layer of suds. Small spotting makes up the lacing.

Smell - Chocolate and coconut is apparent, making for a very German chocolate cake-like aroma. Lesser earthy aroma rides well beneath.

Taste - Flavor follows the nose but with less assertiveness. Chocolate and coconut are strong components, but neither show much depth in flavor.

Mouthfeel - Medium-bodied with slightly tingly carbonation. Slick texture with a smooth, light and crisp finish.

Overall - Solid, tasty coconut brown but unfortunately I've had better. I'd definitely buy it again if I were in the area and in the mood for a nice late summer / early fall sipper.

Poured from 12 oz. can into pint glass. It pours a bright cola color with one finger of foamy, ecru-colored head and lacing. The smell features coffee, caramel, and roasted malt. The coconut comes through in the taste, along with dark bread, caramel, tobacco smoke, and some chocolate. It finishes with a lingering taste of coconut, which is really pleasant. It has a soft, lite, almost silky mouth feel with pleasant carbonation, and its moderate ABV of 6% makes for easy drinking. Overall, a lot of Brown Ales are bleh but this one isn't. It has a nice blend of tastes and is really easy to drink. This is a versatile beer: it would work well pared with a light meal or for casual drinking. I enjoyed it!

Thanks to Superspak for this one from his NBS BIF #4 box. 12oz can poured into 10oz goblet. Poured a clean, clear medium brown color with just a thin cap of tan head that immediately dissipated, and left zero lacing.

In the nose, I got a hint of leather, some base malt sweetness, and just the faintest whisper of coconut. Pretty similar on the tongue, some sweetness, some grain and caramel, and the coconut was a bit bolder.

The body was fairly light and thin, and the sweet finish lingered for a few moments. Drinkability was good, I drank me can quickly and easily. Overall, a solid and enjoyable brew. Perhaps not one that someone would go out of their way for, but one that's worth a shot if you see it.

12oz can from LambicPentameter (thank you!). No apparent canning date. Served in my trusty Phish snifter.

Pours a ruby highlighted brown with two full fingers of fluffy ecrue head. The foam dies down leaving very little surface haze and a full collar but no lace.

Aromas of toasted coconut, chocolate malt, caramel and some vague roast. Almost like the distant hint of a Mounds bar.

The flavor blends coconut, caramel, chocolate and some bread. The coconut adds nicely to its basic brown ale vehicle.

Medium light, almost creamy feel with moderate carbonation. Finishes with coconut mixed in caramelly and chocolate malts.

An easy drinking brown with a nice coconut presence from Blackrocks. Seems like it could be a good trail beer.
