This is a fantastic beer. It pours black with a huge tan head with super slow retention. It smells of dark black coffee and tastes the same. Not a lot of coconut, but that's my fault for not drinking it fresher.

22oz bottle poured into Snifter

A: Pitch black, nice head that settles down to a small head

S: coffee mostly maybe a slight roasted coconut smell

T: very coffee forward can't really taste the coconut until it warms way up and the light chocolate comes through. Once it warms up the flavors really do come forward.

M: medium mouth on it that lingers it's not as thick as you'd want but it's not bad

O: this beer is ok I wish the tastes were more in your face than subtle but if you can wait until room temperature the beer is very refined with soft flavors of coconut and chocolate

This certainly doesn't compare to the monsters park equivalent, but definitely an improvement on regular black house, which is already a pretty good coffee stout.

Really liked this. Great aroma & flavor - especially after warmed up a bit. Slightly on the thin side, but for a 5.8% stout pretty solid. Very lucky to try this limited release - and hope to have it again.

Great perk of being a member via their kickstarter...was able to take home a 2 pint growler of this. Danksauce Whalez bro.

On Tap at Modern Times, San Diego, CA.

Raul is dumb confounded by this beer. The taste is very unique and highly enjoyable, but it also is a lil...different. Kinda like if Kate Upton were a ginger; Raul means, he would, but at first he'd feel a lil cockeyed about it. The coconut and... Ok, game changer. This thang warmed up and just became robust - awesome. Shame it's limited, but get it while you can!
