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.

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.

Tasted this offering side-by-side with the Imperial Chocolate Mudbank Milk Stout (ICMMS), so it is impossible not to compare the two to one another.

The appearance is the same as the ICMMS with a dark brown almost black color and a finger of beige head. The nose has the definite essence of coconut as well as the taste. I am impressed by the truth in advertising on the coconut, but I must confess that I am not sure if coconut is the best flavor to blend into a stout.

On the negative side, the body is definitely thinner than the ICMMS; on the positive end, the alcohol burn that pokes its way through the ICMMS is not present here.

Definitely a step down from the ICMMS, but still a solid beer.

22oz. bottle, extra in a trade from dnb128. Poured into a Jolly Roger snifter

A: Pours a very dark, rich-looking brown with a slight mocha tint. Big creamy head, leaves a consistent thin layer throughout, and nice dark beige lacing.

S: warm, lactic, sweet bready malts, milk chocolate, lacking coconut on the nose

T/M: cocoa, toffee, coconut! solid hops for balance. incredibly creamy & smooth

O: Full disclosure: I'm a sucker for basically any beer brewed with coconut. That said, I wish this had even more of a coconut presence (despite being brewed with both coconut cream & shredded coconut)!

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.

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

A: Deep brown/nearly black, 1 finger of tan creamy head that quickly dissapates

S: Roasted malt upfront, light sweetness and some toasted coconut, hint of chocolate

T: Roasted maltiness nicely balanced with chocolate and lactose sweetness upfront. Yields to toasted coconut and finally a coffee bitterness balanced with coconut.

M: Creamy and slightly thick.

This stout is put together well, a good value for the price. Well balance but might benefit from a hint more coconut in the nose and on the tongue (at times it almost seems to not be present). More coconut came out in the smell and taste as it warmed. Would definitely recommend drinking this one fresh if you want more coconut.
