BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Icicle Brewing Company
Washington, United States
iciclebrewing.com

Style: American Porter

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.50%

Availability: Winter

Notes / Commercial Description:
Delicate dark chocolate with a whisper of coconut... You know you want it, go ahead and indulge. You can finally have German Chocolate Cake and drink it too. There's no need to be nervous, it's just wickedly deep and full of flavor and desire. With its provocative aroma and smooth body, this is certainly the darkest of fifty shades of risqué.

ABV: 6.5% IBU: 22 OG: 17.4°P FG: 5.7°P

Had at Icicle Brewing Co. in Leavenworth, WA. Dark robust brown in color with a tan head that lingers. Smells of coffee and coconut with some dark chocolate as well. Tastes the same with big coconut punch for the finish. Really does taste like a german chocolate cake in a beer form. Very interesting. Coconut tasted more like an extract for how prominent it was. Good beer to try, definately couldn’t drink two as it would be a little rich.

Bottle served in a tulip. Pours black with a shirt tan head that quickly dissipates. Taste is much as advertised, chocolate with coconut. The coconut is like, but detectable. A very good dessert beer.

Not a real dark fan, but have to admit I could definitely drink more than one of these!

Good beer in small doses, I don't say this often but a little to rich and overly chocolatey.

Draft pour - a real dessert beer. Very rich chocolate character. It was described by the server as candy-like, and that is no lie. It is delicious, but save for after dinner.

I had this on tap at Icicle Brewing as well as at Munchen Haus. I was impressed with this beer, and it definitely tasted like German Chocolate, very tasty. I purchased a couple of 22s to take home and share. I would purchase and drink this if it showed up in Bellingham.
