Massive thanks to maddogg for generously sharing the bottle that jwb sent...

black with some floaties. boom...huge rich bold flavor. chocolate, barrel, cocnut, decadence really nice. happy to have tried. the highlight is the body with the flavor to support it. I am NOT a fan of coconut and I really dug this so there's that.

Bottle. Black and mukry with coconut chunks floating in it. Smells boozy, sweet. chocolatey. Lots of coconut. Some coffee and a little bit of brandy, I think. Tastes very sweet. Strong adjuncts of all sorts: chocolate, coffee, coconut. Heavy alcohol flavor. Nutty malts. Astringent finish. Big, sweet, and boozy. I'd like to say you can't drink much more than a taster of this, but its availability precludes that already.

Poured pretty thick and oily. Nose was a little muted but plenty of sweetness picked up. Nice feel but the taste was super sweet and not much depth or barrel to find. The best thing this beer did was hide the ABV but the flavor was disappointing. Bit of a muddled mess.

L: Pours thick, dark, and oily with a soapy rust- and sand-colored head
S: Coconut, vanilla bean, and some barrel on the nose
T: Insane. Dark chocolate, toasted coconut, and vanilla all drowned in a delicious coffee and maple cascade
F: Thick and chewy
O: Absolutely incredible offering from J. Wakefield. I loved Big Poppa and this absolutely blew the base beer out of the water. I sincerely hope this is made again in a much bigger batch so more beer lovers can enjoy it - just awesome.

Taste like chocolate cake batter with alcohol. If that's your thing it's awesome if not don't waste your time!
