Another outstanding variant from Brothers. The aroma is sweet and nutty, with big hits of coffee. The taste is amazing. Huge Coffee, Coconut, and Vanilla. Had a pour on tap at the brewery, and the snifter was empty far faster than it should have been. It has a nice, thick body, but the taste is so great, you just want to guzzle it. I'd put this right up there neck in neck with Coconut Resolute.

This reminded me heavily of the Coconut Resolute Brothers did last year. Though not quite as amazing as the Coconut Resolute, this beer is the next best thing. Delicious coffee and coconut notes with rich nuttiness and a hint of sweetness.

Didn't have the highest expectations for this one, much prefer great debate over the base daylight, however this by far exceeded my expectations and was very impressive

Another amazing coconut variant. I actually found this to be less sweet than the regular daylight, and the coffee really stood out on the front end. The coconut follows the coffee, and lingers on the tongue along with a bit of vanilla. The adjuncts hide the smokey, meaty flavors that I find very prominent in regular Daylight. I really enjoyed this. The sweetness is measured, and it's a coffee and coconut bomb.

Edit: Not going to change my rating, but mannn this seemed to fall off fast. I just cracked a bottle on 7/9 and hardly got any coconut or vanilla. The squealers I've had were much, much better.

Brothers is setting the bar with stouts, especially with any coconut variant. I was a big fan of the original Daylight Cravings, and this is an example of what Brothers can do with their coconut magic. Big coffee flavor on this up front followed by pleasing coconut with a hint of vanilla. Pours completely opaque with a froth of light brown bubbles.

Pours a medium thick black with minimal head. Smells of the maple and coconut. Do not get a lot of coffee smell. Nice chocolate and vanilla up front taste followed by the maple and a wonderful coconut finish. Man I wish I had more of this beer.

Look - Not pitch black, but pretty dark with minimal carb/head
Smell - Holy coconuts!
Taste - Best described as a chocolate coconut maple milkshake, not much coffee
Feel - Medium body, not too thick but not thin
Overall - If you like coconuts this is for you! Very nice
