L: Had this beer on-tap at Mekong, poured into a snifter glass. Had a dark brown / black color and a thick, opaque consistency. There was a quarter inch of foamy, tan-colored head that lasted an average amount of time. Good lacing.

S: A nice aroma of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, a smoky quality, and some coconut.

T: Tasted of a tinge of chocolate, a big shot of coffee (the most aggressive element), a bit of roasted malt, a hint of coconut, the aforementioned smoky quality, and light hops in the finish. A very interesting flavor. Not as sweet as the Answer's other Andall stouts, but still tasty.

F: An average amount of carbonation with a smooth finish. Medium- to full-bodied.

O: While I don't like this one as much as some of the Answer's other stouts, it's still quite drinkable. Well made.

Near perfection in a stout but my only ding is a slight bitter finish that lingers a touch. Sweet chocolate and extremely creamy almost like drinking melted chocolate ice cream. Delicious.

Fantastic. Coffee and coconut is such a wonderful combination. As always with The Answer, the flavors from the adjuncts are potent and intoxicating. Robust, natural feeling coconut and coffee flavor. Definitely sweet and you can't crush six pints of this on a night out, but I wish I had six more pints of this right now.

Dark, oily slick brown with a thick tan fizz that dies to a faint ring.

Smell is really nutty coffee, where taste adds sweet molasses, roasted nuts, coconut syrup, raisin and dusty walnut with a thin body and crisp fizz.

I'm not sure why people keep mentioning cinnamon, and that they're not getting it. I don't see it on the label. I guess the description lists it but the tasting notes on the sales sheet also omits any cinnamon character. Anyway, this was not as enjoyable as I had imagined it'd be, but it's still decent. Maybe its age did it in.
