From tasting notes 11/09/18
Had on-tap at The Answer Brewpub in Richmond, VA

Appearance - Served up 10oz into a stemless, black in color with a thin layer of suds on top. Fair lacing with spotting and broken lines.

Smell - Chocolate, fudgy aroma with a good amount of coconut accompanying it.

Taste - Follows the nose. Fudgy chocolate with a nice coconut kick. Finish is much the same with a hint of dark chocolate. Sweet, but doesn't become cloying.

Mouthfeel - Full bodied with fair carbonation. Smooth and creamy texture. Nice drinker.

Overall - Damn good German chocolate style stout. Reminds a bit of the New Glory Batter Up. While I prefer the latter's flavor, the body on this one is much thicker and more fitting.

The look has a nice chocolate and coffee brown with a nice and syrup like appearance.

The smell is good. It has a strong coconut upfront with some moderate caramel and a light cocoa in the finish.

The taste is really frigging good. A good mix of the caramel and coconut upfront buoyed by a decent cocoa note. It definitely strongly resembles a German chocolate cake.

The feel is really good. It has a nice heavy body and a thick and smooth feel.

Overtime, delicious and definitely strongly resembles a German chocolate stout.

Bottom line - liquid German chocolate cake in a glass. Very sweet and syrupy - not sure I could drink glass but a shared 5oz taster glass is pure heaven. Only going to rate one or two but sampling a number of killer stouts here each with a unique profile. The Answers high ABV stouts are absolutely world class. Among if not the best I have ever had.
