Bottled 5/24/17; drank 10/15/17 @ the Yarchives.

Black/brown appearance.

A rough pour yielded a big tan head; almost no lace.

Coconut, cream, mild milk chocolate & faint orange citrus notes in the nose.

Creamy medium mouthfeel.

Coconut & cream flavors; mild milk chocolate & faint citrus bite on the finish.

Too sweet for me to really love (plus I'm not the biggest coconut fan); drinkable, but 4 oz or so was more than enough.

Pour is pitch black with a nice lighter mocha colored head. The head retains fairly well, forming a ring around the edge of the glass as it dissipates.

Smell is upfront with bitter chocolate. A slight earthy hop presence is there as well. The coconut is a little more muted than expected. It's there, but not as present as I had hoped.

Taste begins with a bitter roasted chocolate, fading into a sweeter lactose and vanilla. Coconut is very present on the finish. A nice coconut and vanilla interplay.

Mouthfeel has a slight astringency that I find can be present in many milk stouts. Otherwise it is creamy yet light.
