Looks nice and dark with the tan head I'd expect. The smells starts at sweet roast malts, then comes coconut and whatever else fell in there. It has a candy like sweetness, like a coconut candy bar. Not really enjoyable.

500mL bottle, dark brown body is capped with a thin light brown head. Very sweet aroma with coconut, peanut, chocolate, caramel. Candy-like sweetness with notes of caramel, milk chocolate, sweetened coconut, peanut, vanilla, lactose, roasted barley. Full body, lower carbonation, sweet from start to finish. Overall, it's way too sweet for me, which means I'll never buy it again.

16 ounce bottle into a snifter. Had 3/5/18.

Pours dark and opaque, with a one inch creamy head and some foamy lacing. Aromas of peanuts, chocolate, malt, coconut, vanilla, light cocoa, some toffee. Tastes of vanilla, coconut, chocolate, malt, sea salt, light cocoa, light caramel. Smooth, fairly creamy, a good medium body, well carbonated.

This is the third Fun Size variant I’ve tried, and they’re all well made, fun and enjoyable. All the add- ins show well for the most part, except the peanuts dissapear in the flavor. The coconut has a more solid presence here, than in many other beers made with coconut.

Taste: Bold, toasted real coconut, not artificial abstract, nutty, unique, cocoa. Great coconut husky and fresh shaved coconut nose with woody sweet aroma. Black, opaque, with nice tan head and lattice of lace. Medium full body. Yum. 25 IBUs

16.9oz bottle poured into a pint glass shows an opaque dark brown, almost cola-like bubbly in direct light at the edges. An 1/8in frothy milk chocolate head quickly disippates to nothing, but returns in a cap with agitation, and a clean glass remains so as no lacing forms.

Aroma is toasted coconut forward but also favors vanilla sweetness, cocoa, and peanuts. Exactly as advertised.

Flavor matches but the combination seems confused. It's all in there somewhere, just not to the same definition found in the aroma.

Mouthfeel is smooth and nearly tongue coating-ly creamy with a dry finish.

Overall a good use of the base Fun Size.
