500 mL bottle. Inky black with a small khaki head. Smells of coconut, chocolate, and lactose, as described. Taste is intense. Coconut and lactose combine to make it taste very sweet up front. Milk chocolate. Vanilla builds into the finish. Heavy and very sweet. Nothing cuts the sweetness and it just kinda lingers. Unbalanced, for sure.

Fair amount of slightly bitter charred grain aromatics and taste, almost nutty like there's peanuts in the mix somewhere. Good execution of lactose without over sweetening and the vanilla is pleasant but I can't say I found coconut anywhere. Coffee is a little lighter than I expected and wanted as well.
A decent non-ba stout but not worthy of the accolade it seems to be receiving, there are better things collecting dust on some shelves
