Brewed at our Fort Point location, Permutation 6.32 is a bold imperial stout brewed with a number of dark roasted malts and dark brown sugar and then conditioned on fresh coconut. Pouring a jet black color with a light brown head, Permutation 6.32 offers enticing aromas of melted chocolate, vanilla, rich molasses and coconut macaroons. The palate follows, exploring layers of bright coconut, raisins, and ground nuts. Full bodied with a viscous mouthfeel, Permutation 6.32 has an indulgent finish with a decadent sweetness.

L -- Pitch black in the glass. No head or lacing whatsoever
S -- Toasted coconut, marshmallow, dark chocolate, molasses, vanilla wafer, hot booze. The booze dominates a little
T -- The coconut takes center stage here and it's awesome. Rounded out by a brown sugar sweetness, maple, booze, milk chocolate, vanilla ice cream, caramel, and snickerdoodle
F -- Carb could be notched up a little, this came across as almost still. Nice thick mouthfeel
O -- One of my favorite stouts from Trillium to date. Just a reminder that their Permutation series -- despite being hit-or-miss -- consistently has some great diamonds in the rough. Great value compared to Trillium's other offerings
