Heavy coconut and caramel on the nose. Very sweet with caramel, coconut, and chocolate coming at you hard. The sweetness and alcohol linger on the finish.

Drank from 12oz bottle
S- like a Samoa cookie
T- to me the salt dominates, just couldn't get past it
F- medium bodied
O- just getting over a cold so maybe the saltiness was due to that. Love all the Blackwater Series so might revisit.

Couple of weeks after trying their Cinnamon Roll, I accidentally find this one in a six-pack of their Chocolate Stout, which I enjoy. Unfortunately, like the cinnamon beer, this one misses the mark. "cloying" is a good one word description. Too sweet, and though arguably the blend of spices and coconut is intriguing it cannot overcome the syrupy quality of this beer. Not much foam, and a bit more carbonation would definitely improve this, give it some sharpness. Could not finish the glass.

Very good, can taste the coconut and caramel, just like the cookie! But like most southern tier beers has heavy alcohol taste/ feel.

Phenomenal beer, if you’re a fan of coconut. Smooth, only slightly acidic. Warm and delightful. I’m in love.

Comes in a pitch black color with a nice creamy tan head. Good retention. A thin film remains.
It smells overwhelmingly of toasted coconut, brown sugar, vanilla, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, dark chocolate, and blackberry and raspberry.
It tastes like milk chocolate, dark chocolate, vanilla, caramel, brown sugar, sweetened coffee, burnt toast, and hints of licorice and raisin--with a nice savory saltiness on the back end. Dangerously easy to drink for 10%.
Feels medium-plus, creamy, moderately carbonated, smooth and silky to a lightly sweet but balanced finish.

I sampled one not expecting much from it. The next day I went back to the liquor store and bought two cases. The coconut, caramel, and sea salt flavors are amazingly well balanced. This is by far the most delicious beer I have ever had. I am sadly down to one bottle left and will have to save it for a special occasion.

If you love coconut and Samoa cookies, this is the beer for you.
