Thick oily black color. Oily layer tops this beer.

Rich, chocolate cake, fudge, and coconut all surrounded by great bourbon, oak, and vanilla flavors. Full bodied with a silky mouthfeel. Basically everything you could ask for in a pastry stout.

Mini share at a SP release. Pours pitch black with smells of sweet bourbon interlaced with chocolate. I've had the non-barrel aged version, and while this is a tad thinner, it makes up with the chocolate flavor. Sweet and glorious chocolate flavor for days. Loved it.

Sample at Mikkeller Beer Celebration Copenhagen 2017, green session. Black color with brown head. Smells like a syrupy chocolate cake and bourbon soaked brownies. Taste is really sweet with lots of chocolate, fudge and bourbon. It's tasty but also really sugary and overly sweet.

750 mL bottle. Black body. Smells very sweet. Chocolate. Coconut. I don’t get much, if any, barrel. Tastes very sweet. I do get some whiskey here. Vanilla. Sweet chocolate. Coconut behind it. Sugary finish. Heavy and incredibly sweet. I must say, this is worth the sugar.

L: Dark mocha hues with a thin sandy head
S: Coconut, dark chocolate, and a bit of vanilla bean
T: Rich and decadent - layers of flavor that marry up to its namesake
F: Thick and creamy
O: This was my group's favorite beer at Huna Day, including the likes of Bake Kujira, 3 Sons, Coconut Medianoche, etc. Honestly the beer caught me a bit by surprise. Simply put this beer delivered in terms of flavor, depth, mouthfeel, and nose. Well done.

This one is a beaut, especially if you love sweet and creamy stouts. It is perfectly balanced. A little thin in appearance but great creamy mouthfeel. Coconut comes in nicely without being over bearing. Tastes like German Chocolate Cake without feeling artificial. Only wish would have been a bit more head retention but it's expected from BBA aging. Very well done!
