Pours out black. Head is tan with decent retention. Lacing is minimal with just a touch here and there.
Coconuts in your face. Also hints of lightly roasted coffee, vanilla, milk chocolate and grains.
Upfront you get coffee/coconut that follows through. The middle is vanilla and ends with a coffee finish. Reminds me of a coconut flavored coffee I had once.
The mouthfeel is medium bodied and quite soft. Carbonation plays well.

Pours deep dark brown, almost black. Thick tan head ,minimal lacing. Nose is sweet toasted coconut with hints of cocoa and coffee. Taste follows nose ,heavy on toasted coconut. Feels a bit thin with quite a dry finish. Toasted coconut is the dominant theme here.

Pours a pitch black coloration with a medium, creamy head. Smell is dominated by toasted coconut, with hints of coffee and chocolate. Taste follows the nose, being quite dominated by toasted coconut, but with slight notes of coffee, chocolate and licorice as well. Finished with a dry, light/medium bitterness and more coconut in the aftertaste. Smooth mouthfeel with a light/medium body and low carbonation. This is quite true to its name, with a strong coconut aroma and taste and just a hint of coffee/chocolate coming through as well. Body is a little light, but this is a Dry Stout after all. Just how much you are going to enjoy this is gonna be strongly dependant on how you feel about coconut.

Oskar Blues Death By Coconut, 6.5% abv, canned in October, "Extra nutty just for you".

Pours black with dark cola highlights. Thin khaki head doesn't last long and reduces to a half cap, leaving some spotty lacing behind.

Smells of sweet coconut. Not overwhelming or artificial. A little roastiness underneath.

Has a good coconut flavor, not artificial. I can take or leave coconut, and typically leave it, but this has a nice, not overwhelming, toasty sweet coconut flavor. But I'm certainly not being killed by the coconut, as the name suggests.

It's a touch thin for my liking, and the alcohol isn't particularly well integrated. Wish there was more of the base porter coming through, and I wish that porter had a little more roastiness for balance.

It's just not doing much for me. Maybe I like coconut in beverages less than I thought.
