Pours a dark mahogany brown with a dark tan head. The aroma is chocolate and coconut. The flavor is the same with some roasted malt, and too sweet for my taste. The feel is thin even for a porter. Overall an okay beer.

750ML bottle that I passed on several times at $20/22 – yeesh. Must be virgin, imported, hand-macheted coconut? Picked up at $15, & I had to think on that. Split with my wife.

The pour is black, with visible carbonation that doesn’t even cover the surface of the beer. Smells like chocolate & light roast – I think there’s coconut, but that might be the power of suggestion.

Fantastic Voyage – where are we going? The cast of Lord of the Flies would have rejected this beer, as they’d been subsisting on coconuts for months. Candy. Chocolates & coconuts with just a quid of roast in the background. Touches of cinnamon & gentle lactose round it out. Smooth. Too sweet to drink like the well of life, but half a bomber will suit my need for sugar just fine.

A very good, solid stout with a lovely touch of coconut – but why the hell in a bomber for a premium price? The easy answer is because idiots like me buy it. A one & done at the price, but attractive in a smaller, less pricey format.

Nice milk stout base with a touch of sweetness, oaky vanilla, and smooth creaminess. The coconut is the star with lots of toasted coconut flavor and aroma.

The beer pours some very light brown head that dissipates very, very quickly. The beer itself has a nice creamy look and a bit thin while the beer itself is a good chocolate syrup black and looks very nice. The smell is pretty good. It has as good chocolate syrup note with a slight bitterness and creamy note to it. The taste is very good. It has a nice delicious mix of bitter cocoa and sweet milk chocolate flowing through the beer. There's a fairly light coconut note to it and a caramel note underneath everything that blends well with the chocolate to give it a bit of extra sweetness. The feel is pretty good. It has a pretty light body and extremely creamy with very light carbonation to it. Light body. This is a pretty good beer and worth getting and having for dessert.
