Notes / Commercial Description:
Continuing our exploration on the base of our bold American Imperial Stout infused with cold-brew coffee, we are proud to present Coconut PM Dawn. This batch utilizes our new Trillium blend cold brew from Barrington. Like our previous PM Dawn variants, we slightly dialed back the coffee ratio to allow the heavy dose of coconut to balance the beer and perfectly accentuate its flavor profile.

Coconut PM Dawn presents a dark chestnut brown color with khaki head and lacing. Bold, freshly roasted dark coffee aromas swirl to the nose accented by notes of sweet shredded coconut, toasted graham cracker, caramel and chocolate chips. On the palate, cold brew derived flavors of roasted hazelnut and melted dark chocolate interweave with a bright coconut profile calling to mind macaroons, Mounds bars, and Caribbean sugar cake. As with all of our PM Dawn variants, Coconut PM Dawn offers a medium to heavy body with a luscious mouthfeel and a light bitterness for a balanced and smooth finish.

MALT: Pale Malt, Caramunich, Crystal Malt, Dextrine, Black (Patent), Roasted Barley, Special B, Chocolate Malt

HOPS: Hop Extract

ADDITIONAL INGREDIENTS: Trillium Cold Brew Coffee, Toasted Coconut

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 16 oz can into a tulip glass.

Pours a dark cola color with a finger of effervescent caramel head. The head is gone in a hurry, leaving a few spots of lacing before settling into a thin sheet.

The aroma brings notes of toasted caramel, milk chocolate, bitter, roasted coffee, caramel, and sweet graham crackers.

The flavor starts off with roasted coffee and brown sugar. Then comes a wave of caramel, toffee, molasses, and milk chocolate before Mr. Coconut bursts through the wall and screams "Oh Yeah!". There's some graham crackers and toasted almonds on the back end. Very sweet and decadent but also very well-balanced.

The feel is medium-full bodied with very soft carbonation. Creamy and smooth, like your mom's behind.

Overall, an exceptional imperial stout that definitely brings the coconut without abandoning the other flavors and aromas that make this beer great. It's decadent and sweet, but there's plenty of balance here to make it worth your while. Definitely hope to see this one again.

L — Pours a fairly dark shade of black with a finger of cola-colored head that fizzles away instantly. Zero retention or lacing
S — Cold brew, coconut, vanilla cake, gingerbread cookie, marshmallow, hazelnut, milk chocolate, hint of booze
T — Largely follows the nose. The added toasted nuttiness from the coconut really complements the coffee ice cream character of the base beer. Gives it this nice cookie-like quality too
F — Medium mouthfeel, medium carb. A bit thin for the style and ABV, but that makes it dangerously drinkable
O — Best PM Dawn variant so far

88/100

This one pours a very dark black color, with a small head, and a little bit of lacing.

This smells like toasted and sweet coconut, Mounds, macaroon cookies, hazelnut coffee, chocolate fudge, and roast.

This is easily one of the best stouts Trillium has ever done. The coconut is a nearly perfect addition to a basically perfect coffee stout. I get hazelnut and vanilla along with the expected coffee and coconut, and some nice roasty bitterness, along with a big old fudgy backbone.

This is thick and chewy, rich and big, with no booziness, and a very good level of drinkability.

This might be the best PM Dawn variant - outside of the actual PM Dawn, which is still basically the perfect coffee stout.

Had on tap. Pours opaque, jet black in color with minimal head. Taste is big coconut, both flakes and juice with a touch of coffee. Sweet, juicy, heavy bodied, with moderate carbonation. Incredible coconut taste. Overshadows the coffee, but for a non coffee drinker, I am not complaining. Will get this again. Feels like I am reliving my Hawaiian honeymoon.
