Dark brown color with a ring of tan foam. Aroma has coconut, booze, whiskey and rum. Taste is sweet with fudge, dark chocolate brownies, bourbon and toffee with a bitter, roasty finish. Medium plus body with medium carbonation. Nice flavors but quite boozy.

Rich dark color with vanilla notes greeting the nose, Full body, well balanced - bourbon is soft on palate. Very subtle hint of coconut. 4/12/18

The beer pours a Pitch Black with a medium sized khaki head. The beer has low carbonation. It smells of coconut, vanilla, whipped cream, marzipans, and a little bourbon. It tastes of toasted coconut, vanilla, egg whites, whipped cream, marzipans, and bourbon. The body is medium full. This is an amazing stout, there are so many coconut stouts these days but this one stood out in a big way.

Courtesy of Collins - thanks, bruv!

Aroma of chewy bourbon, vanillin, leather, and toasted oak. Chewy dark malts.

Taste fulfills the promise of the aroma, bringing ample bourbon barrel notes and thick chewy malt.

Heavy and a bit sludgy, but it kind of works.

The coconut gets lost in the mix.

B- (3.35) / WORTHY
