Big thanks to Smoked for hooking me up with this shortly after its release. Drank recently after 2 years in the cellar. 12oz bottle into a matching tulip shaped Avery tour pint glass. The brew is a dark cola brown with a dark khaki head that fizzles. All across the top of the brew are white chunks of coconut flesh.

Aroma is very sugary with chocolate, raisony booze and a perfume-like coconut essence. Taste is exceptionally sweet and sugary with mild vanilla and coconut upfront and raisons and chocolate across the back. As it warms up, a little hint of licorice and the booze becomes solvent with faint nutty aftertaste.

Full body with ample carbonation. The 17% alcohol is masked fairly well behind the huge sweetness. However, that same sticky sweetness crushes the nuance of the beer itself. Aged in rum barrels? You would never know.

12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Murky deep brown. Pushing black. No real head. Some floaties.

Smell - Yeesh, lots of rum. Boozy. A ton of coconut. Brown sugar. Some light oxidation.

Taste - Very sweet. Lots of coconut. Brown sugar and rum. The slightest hint of chocolate malt. Slight oxidation.

Mouthfeel - Extremely boozy. Medium low carbonation, heavy body.

Overall - Intensely sweet, which isn't my thing.

Thanks to Bankhead for sharing this one at mrbubbler's tasting.

Bottled 6/4/14.

Pours a murky dark brown with a foamy tan head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, brown sugar, cocoa, candied coconut, and rum aromas. Taste is much the same with toasted coconut, brown sugar, toffee, and rum flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of wood bitterness and an alcohol kick on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with the coconut and rum coming through a bit better in the taste to me.

Serving type: bottle.
