Pours jet black with gorgeous brown head. Aroma is mind-blowing. Deep chocolate notes, with a great coffee aroma. So inviting! The coconut is more subtle on the nose. Getting maple, dark fruit, and beautiful roasted malts. The nose is one of the best I have smelled in a while. The taste is incredible. More coffee on the taste, bitter chocolate, black licorice, roasted malts, dark fruit - blackberry and some cherry. Some raisins, nuts, and tree bark. Definitely coconut, but not a bomb like some stouts. Vanilla and maple notes are definitely there as well. Mouthfeel is thick, creamy, and the aftertaste sticks around for a while. Mostly chocolate for me. Overall, an absolutely fantastic beer.

Black color with really rich brown head. Aroma has intense dark malts, sweetened coffee and a light background coconut sweetness. Taste starts quite sweet and syrupy, intense, quite roasty, some umami, sweet coffee, finish has some roasty bitterness but the aftertaste still lingers bittersweet. Leans towards full bodied, a bit sticky, low carbonation. It's a dessert beer for sure, like a bitter dark chocolate praline with really sweet filling.

Bottle from Orenco Taphouse.

Jet black, viscous and capped with a dense, dark brown head with great retention, this looks great. The nose is excellent. A blend of aggressive Black Patent roast and bitterness, licorice, soy and plenty of fruit, the base stout is great. There's a modest coffee note, mildly fruity and with a touch of almond that complements the mild coconut nose. On the palate, this is remarkably cohesive with a great balance of roast, spice and fruit. Grainy bitterness, savory soy, licorice and anise and a mildly creamy rum soaked dried fruit character, this is really harmonious. Coffee and coconut are tastefully integrated into the palate. Full, thick and creamy, this is excellent on the palate. The finish is long with lingering umami, licorice, coffee and a little oily coconut. Spectacular.

Tan head. Black in color. Thick.

Coffee and coconut in a great way. The coconut wins but I like it. Lots of chocolate and marshmallow flavors. Thick and fudgy. Smooth and warming. This is amazing.

Appearance - Pours solid black with nice thick mocha colored head that lasts several minute before settling to a thick ring around the glass.

Aroma - The first thing I am picking up is some mild sweet chocolate, there is also a fresh shaved coconut aroma but it is sort of light and hard to detect until it gets almost room temp. the coffee is more of coffee beans and the alcohol burns my nose just a little at the end.

Taste - Great fresh coffee bean flavor along with some light coconut up front. bakers chocolate more than sweet chocolate in the taste makes me wonder if the sweetness I picked up in the nose may have been something else. The alcohol is well hidden and adds nothing more than a slight warmth in the mouth.

Feel - Full bodied smooth creamy soft, just a light heat from the alcohol on the finish very easy drinking.

Overall - I was very impressed with this beer, very balanced aromas and flavors. the flavors are also very fresh tasting nothing artificial.
