A limited release version of our Winter stout offering brewed with two row barley, Munich, and Caramel malts, as well as coconut cream and milk added to the kettle; all ran through a hop back filled with 60 pounds of toasted shredded coconut before it hits the fermenter. The combination of bready malt, chocolate, coffee, and sweetness from the coconut and lactose give this beer a complexity beyond the ordinary. 7.2% ABV and only available in odd numbered years.

22oz bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance
Nearly black with a half finger of tan head that dissipates quickly. There's a little light penetration around the edges.

Nose
Milk chocolate, coconut milk, roasted barley, licorice and medium roast coffee.

Taste
Coconut milk (that's somewhat tangy) and lactose sweetness. Roasted barley, milk chocolate and licorice. Lightly roast coffee with heavy cream and sugar. Heavier roasted notes trickle in towards the finish.

Mouthfeel
Medium bodied, creamy and smooth.

Overall
This is incredibly smooth and balanced. The coconut is kept fairly light, but reminds you that it's a Milk stout at heart.

This is arguably the most coconut forward beer I have had. Taste is coconut-milk and dried flakes, dark chocolate and sweet chocolate. I thought I was drinking a liquid Almond Joy. Really a great dessert beer if you are into coconuts. I will look to pick this up again.

Poured from a bomber...

Looks great. 1/2" head that settles to a nice foam ring around the inside of the glass.

Smells a bit sweet. Almost a creamy/ dairy scent.

Tastes sweet with a bitter finnish. The sweetness is very mellow, finishes out much more bitter. Tastes like toasted malts. The coconut flavor is not very obvious. Despite the lack of coconut taste defined by its name, it is still a great milk stout.

Very full bodied beer.

Pours a cloudy-opaque jet black with huge tan head that disappates fairly quickly with a sticky lacing. Aroma is chocolate, roasted malt with pineapple resemblance. Apparently the coconut aromas do not survive the fermentation process since, in my experience, coconut beers at best have a subtle fragrance of coconut unless there is flavoring added.

The taste of Coconut Mudbank Milkstout is exceptionally smooth, lusciously sweet and chocolatey rich with a nutty finish. There are some fruit esters in the background adding to the complexity. Compared the the regular Mudbank Milk Stout, this coconut added version is not hugely different, but somewhat smoother. Given a choice I would go for the Coconut version, but considering the limited production, I will keep drinking the regular Mudbank Milk Stout quite happily.

3/5....pours deep dark chocolately brown, with off white foamy head. Creamy to the eye. Light chocolate nose, some coconut. Faint. Sweet milky flavorful stout. Lactose based sweetness with a mild coffee ground bitter to close. Very smooth. Fast finish. Really tasty stout.

A: Pours a nearly opaque coffee color with a frothy light brown head that settles to a thin veil across the top. Some lacing and no visible carbonation.

S: Subtle nose at first followed by a burst of natural and toasted coconut as the beer warms. The nose really opens with hints of cream and almond joy.

T: Nice base milk stout with faint notes of vanilla and chocolate. Slight roast and distant hop bitterness. Milky in the middle with a long, semi dry finish highlighted by toasted coconut.

M: Slick and milky. Smooth with moderate carbonation. Medium body reminiscent of 1% milk.

D: Highly drinkable. A beer with coconut in the name that actually embodies the fruit in smell and flavor. What a novel concept! I haven't tried the base stout, and this is my first non-IPA from these guys. This is a smooth milk stout with the quintessential silky body that achieves natural notes of coconut on the nose and palate. Very nice.
