Pours a dens black color with a tan head and lacing. First smell coconut and vanilla , roasted malts and chocolate follow. Taste was very good nice pleasant coconut with milk chocolate then add some vanilla drizzle and roasted malts. A creamy and sweet balanced stout a pleasure to sip and sip.

I don’t know, but I’m going to assume this is the base beer to the BA Doggie beers & as such, is worthy of enormous respect. 22 oz. bottle split with my wife.

Black, quiet, unassuming. Smells like hugging a coconut with your nose, with a smattering of malt sweetness. Not bad.

Coconut Jones Dog is tastier than your average dog. It’s exquisitely balanced – coconut, bitter chocolate, malty backing, vanilla, & lactose in equal measures of 40% each. Sticky, thick, & I can’t stop drinking it. One of the few beers that I’m going to beat my wife to the bottom of the glass.

Beautiful. Excellent. And if this is indeed the base beer to the barrel aged Dog series, it’s no wonder they’re so good.

Poured from 22oz bottle into glass. No bottling date information found, but the label does have a 2018 dated copyright.
Black colored body, with just the tiniest of brown edge highlights when presented to light. Long lasting dark tan creamy head. Sheets and webs of lacing.
Aroma is milk chocolate malt, coconut, vanilla, and a whiff of alcohol.
Taste is sweet with lactose, flavors of milk chocolate, natural coconut, and a little vanilla. Has sort of a vinous hint at the end of the flavor profile. No real bitterness.
Full mouth feel, creamy, with a little syrup. Very sweet on the teeth.
Presents itself as a dessert beer, with a sweet, sugary taste profile, that allows the chocolate, coconut, and vanilla to assist in the overall taste. Very filling.

i didnt like this one quite as much as i have enjoyed the other flavored pipeworks stouts. the coconut flavor is a little reserved, its not so sun screen lotion tasting, and i think its nice to have it more well integrated it often is, it seems more natural and less forced here, but the rest of the beer seems somewhat pedestrian, especially for these guys, who tend to make these flavored stouts as well as anyone. there is a dry cocoa element, a lighter roast malt profile but more chocolate than anything, and a general lightness for what it is that i am not sure is the best platform for the coconut. its also very sweet, lots of residual sugar from the malt and lactose, which together make this a small glass beer at the most for me. i like the chocolate flavor in here, but it could use more of an earthy nib rather than a sweet milk chocolate profile to make it a little more drinkable, and the beer seems caught in abv no mans land, where its not quite built like an imperial, but its too strong to be a multi beer drink, it lacks the confident identity of some of their others, if that makes sense. the coconut aspect is great though, and like all pipeworks beers, this is absolutely worth a try...

L - pours a mostly black brown with a deep mocha tan head. Lots of bubble action going on with the sides of the glass.

S - initial waves of iced coffee and milk chocolate. Strong, earthy coconut shavings that become clearer and clearer with each sniff.

T - coconut isn't as potent as I expected, interestingly enough. Oh it's there from beginning to end, but there is a clear stout base. Roasted malts and a definitive barrel presence. Some whiskey in there, especially on the finish. What really gets me is the raw, natural coconut flavors. Like taking a bite out of a fresh chunk of slaved-over coconut. Seriously, those things are a bitch. Birch beer on the finish.

F - milky and creamy, just what I would expect from a milk stout!

O - all around a nice milk stout. Good lactose content and monster coconut presence. Stay away if that's not your jam, but if it is... dig in.
