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.
