From BeerAdvocate Magazine #76 (May 2013):

Smells great, more like a confection than a beer, which is an impressive feat. Flavors open up more after each sip. While not immensely complex, the melding of the roasted character and coconut is nothing short of absolutely delicious.

STYLE: Milk Stout w/ Coconut
ABV: 8.8%
AVAILABILITY: Summer Seasonal

LOOK: Black, brown lacing

SMELL: Chocolate, charred grain, toasted coconut, currants

TASTE: Sweet, full bodied, mild roasted grain, chocolate, breakfast roast coffee, coconut, faint brown sugar, cooked raisins, crackers, sweet finish

Appearance - The milk stout poured a deep black color with bubbles crowning the sides of the glass.

Smell - The malts come to the front in the aroma with a sense of chocolate

Taste - Dark chocolate with raspberry is the initial impression. Coconut yields to the malt, making is somewhat faint. The chocolate has a sour tint which gives the impression of an overall fruitiness. Slightly sour creamy chocolate dominates the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - The lactose gives an overall smoothness to the mouthfeel with modest carbonation.

Overall - I hope this beer is not really retired because I like it a lot.
