3.8/5  rDev -3.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours a dark brown cola color with a finger and a half of lasting khaki-colored head that leaves strong lacing.

Strong, sweet aroma of caramel, butterscotch and toasted coconut. Maybe a hint of vanilla. A hint of darker malts behind that.

There's a little sweetness, but much more of a roasted malt flavor in the taste; decidedly less caramel than the nose; then the coconut. A little vanilla and a little bitterness in the aftertaste.

Medium bodied with a slick mouthfeel.

Coconut isn't really my thing. Others may enjoy this more.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pours a crimson-hued brown with 3 fingers of tan head. Above average lacing & good head retention

S: Roasted grains, toastyness, a little mocha & faint coconut flavor

T: Mocha & toasted coconut, some vanilla sweetness & just a hint of coffee bean up front. More toasted coconut as this warms along with mocha & a little woody bitterness as this warms, slight boozeyness as well. Finishes dry sweet, woody with some toasted coconut

MF: Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, some boozey warmth

Pretty tasty, some minor flaws, but I would buy this again, I'd prefer to see it smaller bottles or cans though. Wish I had some macaroons to go with it!

A - Almost stout like S - Bring on the coconut baby! T - Malt, a bit sweet and coconut comes on board M - like a really mello stout with coconut O - Really well done! Very much enjoyable and different but not to the point of being different just to be different.

This is a great late night sipping beer. Different flavors hit you as the beer warms. Nice Job Core!

Quite tasty, coconut, chocolate, gets better as it warms a bit. I can't speak to the look, drank from the bottle. Medium carbonation, a great sipping and dessert beer. Yum.

12 oz bottle, snifter

A – Nearly jet black, with light khaki, large bubbles, and moderately low retention. Does not pour particularly thick or thin.

S – Coconut, coffee, and toasted pecans, almost like butter pecan ice cream or a flavored cappuccino. A touch of hazelnut and chocolate.

T – Chocolate, light coffee liqueur, light butterscotch. Some low herbal hops, and low impressions of hazelnut and coconut. Getting more of the toast flavor than the coconut flavor here.

M – Fairly light bodied and light to medium-light carbonation. Fairly dry throughout.

O – This beer smells amazing, but the flavor doesn’t quite live up to the aroma. Still, very drinkable, and very interesting.

Subtle coconut aroma and taste. Compliments well with the dark brown. Coconut is not overwhelming. Hint of roastiness.

A bodied beer that still is pretty crisp. Roasted malt and slight bitter sweet finish.

Taste rating in words: A toasted sweet surprise after a long hard day.
