4.69/5  rDev +18.4%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Appearance: Dark brown/black. Pretty much no head when poured into a goblet. Small bits of coconut still floating around. Looks incredible.

Smell: You can definitely smell some alcohol on the initial whiff, followed by some strong coconut and light chocolate/vanilla notes.

Taste: Similar to the smell, however, you taste absolutely none of the alcohol. Incredible for a beer with such a high ABV. You get no sensation of alcohol in your mouth or throat, but a definite warm sensation in your chest. Tastes like roasted coconut and chocolate. Have never tasted a beer quite like this.

Mouthfeel: Incredibly creamy and smooth. Medium-light carbonation. The texture of this beer is absolutely mind-blowing.

Overall: The best way I can sum this beer up is like drinking a melted Almond Joy that has an ABV of 17.1%. If you can manage to get your hands on one of these, do it!

Snagged a cold bottle at the release served in the parking lot in the back of a dodge ram truck poured into 8oz mason jars (necessity is the mother of all invention)

A-murky dark brownish black with no head or retention

S- oh dear god. Coconut, sweet chocolate, roasted sugar cane, dark rum, vanilla and lust.

T- Sweet coconut, chocolate with vanilla, bakers chocolate and no booze. Lingering hints of rum tie the whole thing together. I heard it called a liquid mounds bar and I have to agree. Christ its good

M- lush creamy and perfect

O- The best Avery beer I've had, just slightly above Tweak in my books, and one of my top four stout/porters. Absolutely incredible.
