Got this from my good friend FFFJunkie, thank you. Poured into a tulip glass at 46 degrees. A creamy dense medium brown one finger thick head. The retention of the head is fair. The inky black beer is opaque.

The initial aromas of the beer are chocolate, coconut, coffee, milk, and burnt sugars. Additional aromas are roasted malts, bread, grains, yeast, and earthy notes.

The coconut is not one single component; however, it is weaved delicately in the beer's profile. The flavors of the beer are coffee, milk, burnt sugars, grains, yeast, earthy, roasted malt, and bread.

The mouthfeel of the beer is chewy and velvety. A full body beer medium carbonation and a full finish.

This beer is incredible. I would have like to seen more coconut.

There wasn't too much coconut in this. This was a good stout I just expected a little more coconut to set it apart from the original more.

Appearance - Pours jet black with nice tight mocha colored head that dissipates to a thick ring around the glass.

Aroma - Rich dark chocolate and roasted malts come out first. It almost smells like a chocolate brownie, the coconut gets stronger as it warms.

Taste - The rich dark chocolate dominates the first sip mid way through the roasted malts and vanilla kick in and the coconut comes through at the end. Very nicely layered flavors and well balanced.

Feel - Surprisingly full creamy feel, soft carbonation and slick.

Overall - A very well done milk stout wonderful powerful flavors and great full feel.

Look is pitch black and poured with 1.5 fingers of dark khaki head.

Aroma is rich milk chocolate, roasted malt, and coconut.

Taste follows nose. Rich milk chocolate, roasted malts and coconut. The coconut comes on as it warms.

Feel is velvety smooth and creamy.

Overall a fantastic milk stout. Coconut shines as it comes up to temperature.

Jet black pour with no light leaking through anywhere, creamy tan head sitting atop, aromas are rich milk chocolate, char, and a hint of coconut.

The taste is all luscious chocolate, the slightest bit of char - and, as it warms, the coconut comes forward to smooth out the sweetness. Fantastic beer by 18th Street, IMHO.
