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.

I wasn't getting a lot of coconut on the nose as compared to other coconutty beers....however the mouthfeel and taste of this fine elixir is worth praising. The beer poured a brownish amber with tan head that did not leave much lace. The taste was malty with hints of coconut. Overall....yeah....this is a good one.

I've found mixed results in coconut being incorporated into beers with the coconut often being overdone. This does a great job at producing a distinct yet balanced coconut flavor which coincides well with additional roasted and malted flavors

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.
