This beer is nothing like the description on the bottle. In fairness it is almost a year old and so the coconut is non existent. Ironically this beer reminded me of a sour. My Dad, brother, and I split this bottle, there's were drain pours. I like sours so I stuck with it. However, it was very disappointing.

750 ml Bottle from Dawson's while visiting Maryland. Bottled 4/2013,so I really should have paid attention to the dating when I bought this. i assume the coconut will be gone. Pours black with a one finger mocha colored head that looks lightly creamy. Sweet lactose and chocolate aroma, a good bit of roast, don't get much coconut. Flavor is sweet lactose, graham cracker, and again not much coconut to speak of except maybe a hint of sweetness that isn't lactose or chocolate. There seems to be a bit of cardboardy oxidation in this as well. Body is medium with medium plus carbonation. Not a bad beer, but I must say I am a little disappointed here but that may not be fair given the bottle date and known disappearance of coconut in these beers.
