Pours fairly dark with appropriate head. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, some barrel presence. Vanilla, coconut. Taste is good; nice chocolate flavors, ok coconut, barrel is vaguely in hr background. Feel is thin for the style and abv. Overall not great, but good in a pinch and nice to see on the shelves year round.

Jet black color, body felt above average, slight thick feel to it.
Aroma was coconut,bourbon,alcohol,and milk chocolate.taste was similar, very much like an adult version of chocolate covered coconut candy. Coconut flavor builds as it warms but never overpiwers. As a dessert beer it was very above average

A: nearly black, more like a stout. Nice tan head with small bubbles that didn't hold too long for me
S: caramel, vanilla , coconut milk
T: I get the bourbon and, especially as it warms, the coconut, but the alcohol is nearly impossible to get around. It has a sweetness which works well overall and it's mostly enjoyable even with the bitterness that comes from the alcohol. Just a touch too forward for a porter for my tastes
M: a little thin for a porter with my taste but does stand up good enough
O: it's a solid porter but the alcohol comes through a little much and overwhelms some of the subtler flavors that seem to want to come out. If it came in a six pack I'd grab it from time to time for sure.

Not sure if this was an old bottle, but I did not pick up much coconut. The barrel was also fairly muted. It was cola-thin, and was astringently boozy. Overall, not great.

a: Black with slight ruby at the bottom. Thin surface foam and patchy lacing.


s: Caramel malt with strong alcohol.

t: Follows the nose. Bitter finish seems mostly from alcohol, with some sweetness.

m: Medium with very good body and some carbonation tingle.

o: A powerful-tasting brew in which the high ABV dominates any smoky malt or coconut flavor. Still, enjoyable and clearly signals its strength.

22oz. foiled and capped bottle into Night Shift stemware. Shared with schen9303.

Nose is lactose sugar, cream, vanilla, chocolate and cane sugar. Real sweet though not syrup-y. Beer opens coconut, chocolate, vanilla, roasted malt and cocoa powder. Syrupy towards the middle and finish. Barrel aging is prominent right towards the end. Pretty delicious. Body is medium with moderate to low carbonation. A touch thin on the palate but super smooth and silky. Nice heat going down.

A pretty solid beer. Avery's line of Botanicals and Barrels offerings has impressed so far and this one is no different.

This is a world class stout/porter. The version I tasted is now at 11.4% abv. Not sure when this change was made as there is no date on the bottle that I can find...

The look is nice and dark with a finger of head on the initial pour.

Smell is strong coconut milk, bourbon notes and dark chocolate. Some dark fruit tannins also seep in.

Taste is outstanding. Starts off strong with coconut milk and bourbon complexity. Transitions into an awesome bakers dark chocolate that lingers on the palate. All the while sitting on a great roasted malt body.

Overall, minus the missing date on the bottle, this is one of my favorite stouts. Coming in at $13.00 for the bottle, the quality should be near double the price. Excellent beer, but I wish there was proper dating on the bottle!

22 ounce bottle into a snifter. Had 4/8/17.

Pours a dark brown, mostly opaque, with a half inch head and some soapy lacing. The smell is coconut, bourbon, chocolate, some cocoa, some vanilla, light banana. Bourbon leads the taste, then malt, chocolate, coconut, oak, some vanilla and caramel. Smooth, well carbonated, a good medium body.

A really good coconut flavor, better than most attempts, more barrel forward than others in this series. Worth a purchase.

22oz bomber. Poured out an opaque, jet-black color with a small, khaki-colored head of foam. It smelled of coconut, chocolate, bourbon, vanilla and oak. Good chocolate flavor, coconut was not overpowering, nice bourbon notes and vanilla.

A: Poured into a snifter to a black beer topped by a dense finger and a half of off white head which fades slowly to a collar around the edge of the glass with minimal lacing
S: Smells of milk chocolate, light roasted malts, a hint of coffee, some toasted coconuts, slight oak and some caramel and vanilla.
T: Taste is fairly coconut forward on the front with some chocolate and roasted malts. Slight coffee but a nice amount of barrel influence with some oak, caramel and vanilla coming in strong toward the middle end of the drink. The finish on this one is more roasted malts, chocolate and coffee with more coconut, and some lingering oak.
M: This beer is on the lighter side of medium in body which is surprising for the abv. Carbonation is just a bit under prickly and keeps things moving along the palate while the beer has a drying finish.
O: Overall this is a really nice beer with some great flavors and solid complexity. The coconut and bourbon barrel aging add some nice notes to the beer but don't overwhelm. This is a really nice beer for the price and it worth a try if you like beers with some coconut flavor.
