It's a telling thing that I've traded for this beer on multiple occasions, an exceptional beer in every category, might have the best smell of any beer ive had, perfect amount of coconut, lots of fudge and chocolate, perfect mouthfeel, it's basically brownie batter in a glass, might be my all time favorite stout.

A little too much coconut, but otherwise a wonderful stout. Beautiful motor oil black in the brewery snifter. Aroma is chocolate and coffee. Taste is chocolate and coconut. Nice body and feel. Almost as good as their Fudge Bucket!

Another one from this awesome brewery thanks to rudzud.

Huge creamy fluffy darker colored bubbly 2 finger head that fades at a med lace, nice sticky messy lacing, pitch black color.

Nose big fluffy caramel cocoa, creamy choc and mild dark choc, nice coconut, fluffy nougat and marshmallow, super dark choc and candy bar, lush creamy choc as well, fluffy cake batter.

Taste starts pretty sweet, candy notes with lots of cake batter sweet sweetness, so much creamy fluffy airy moist choc cake, with dark choc cocoa, fudgey, nice fluffy nougat and caramel, nice creamy caramel fudge, cocoa, etc. Finish is mild sweet, candy fudge cocoa and tons of caramel candy.

Mouth is med to fuller bod, fluffy creamy nougat and cocoa feel, nice carb, thick creamy chewy fudgey.

Overall an amazing beer, so much awesome chewy fudgey cocoa

Shared with JLindros. Once again, MASSIVE thanks to Ben, head brewer, for hooking me up with this growler.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice dark brown almost black hue with a big two finger mocha head that fades to leave a thin wispy blanket.

S - Aromas of chocolate, coconut, fluffy nougat. Nice light sweetness. Really does smell like a German chocolate cake. Impressive.

T - Taste is....Yah, does laugher count? Phenomenal chocolate cake batter, just excellent rich chocolaty malts and beans with an amazing coconut finish. The coconut just lingers well after the sip. Incredibly rich and thick, for having only 6.5% that's even more impressive.

M - Mouthfeel is super thick and fudgy, creamy, just really impressive for the ABV.

O - Overall this beer was really delicious, this beer completely encompasses a German chocolate cupcake. Funky Buddha watch out, this is coming for you. Wow.

Serving type: growler

Poured a rich dark black with medium viscosity. Smells of chocolate predominate. Tastes sweet from the milk with a wonderful chocolate lingering aftertaste. This was one of the best milk stouts I have every had.

Pours like motor oil. Great nose of chocolate fudge cake. Wow. Very rich coconut, fudge silk. Make no mistake this is desert. Sweet but evens out quickly with slightly bitter dark chocolate, toasted almonds , coconut and lingers on the palate. Perfect balance. Light carbonation. Way better than the version I had on tap today at the brewery by the same name that had way more roasted characteristics. This gets better with every sip. Angry Chair knocked it out of the park with their first none collaboration bottle release. The $16 price tag is steep but the product is exceptional. I paid $15 a bottle last week for Maple Bacon Coffee Porter from Funky Buddha and this is every bit as impressive.

With the recent addition of toasted coconut and a higher ABV to boot, German Chocolate Cupcake has become a totally new monster. Just recently bottled, this beer tastes the exact same on draft and from the bottle. I wouldn't sit on the bottles for very long because the coconut is quite prevalent and I'd say it has become the forefront of the beer. Overall, one of the better coconut beers I have had and definitely a better recipe than the previous batches. A+ Angry Chair. Can't wait for the barrel aged version (assuming they eventually barrel age it)
