Medianoche - CoconutMedianoche - Coconut
Notes: Coconut Medianoche starts with a carefully selected blend of Medianoche batches aged for 21 months in 6-12 year Heaven Hill® bourbon barrels. After barrel aging, the beer was conditioned on more than 3 lbs per gallon of toasted coconut flakes and raw coconut chips, with the sweet coconut providing a perfect complement to the dark chocolate, brownie batter, and brown sugar notes contributed by the barrels.

This is my first time ever having a stout from weldwerks, and it's my first medianoche (I don't even know if they make stouts that aren't in that 'series'). This is really quite good. I'm a coconut fiend, and this doesn't disappoint It's essentially liquid dessert - milk chocolate coconut. To me, it's sweet but not diabetic sweet. It's less sweet than Coconut Vibes (Shared, aka side project), but it's also less coconut forward. Coconut vibes is also liquid milk chocoluate coconut, but it has a noticeable coconut pop. This is so integrated that the coconut is integrated, but not popping. I'd prefer the popping, but this is way easier to drink than that. If I was only going to buy 1, I'd probably buy coconut vibes only because of that noticeable coconut pop. GOD i love coconut.

This one pours a fairly flat looking inky and gloopy looking black color, with no head or lacing.

This smells like pure sugar, cheap melted chocolate milkshake, coconut syrup, and caramel.

This is actually disgusting. This series used to be some of the best barrel aged stouts in the country, but Weldwerks has just gone off the deep end with these. It’s just tastes like sweet stout glue, basically – it’s basically liquified black sugar – it’s basically…you get it, right? It’s just way too sweet and cloying, with barely any barrel. There’s not even that much coconut, it’s just way too sweet of a base – just loads of cheap overbearing chocolate character.

This is too thick, and not drinkable at all, with very little carbonation. There’s not much booziness, but that’s maybe the only single kind of good thing I can say about this.

What happened to you, Weldwerks? Where did you go so wrong?

This was scrumptious - wow! So much coconut on the nose and palate, plus dark chocolate, nice roast, bourbon, decent sweetness without being cloying; very thicc mouthfeel, great barrel; roasty, coconut finish.

Appearance - The beer was oily black in appearance with carbonation having already been smothered.

Smell - Coconut came through in a big way, with notes chocolate and sweet bourbon.

Taste - The initial impression was of both thickness and coconut. The coconut presence was huge. The coconut was complimented by brownie batter and sweet bourbon. The chocolate acted as a backbone for the sweet coconut in the finish.

Mouthfeel - The beer had milkshake thickness and little carbonation.

Overall - Perhaps this my favorite coconut beer.

Bless my friends at Tavour for delivering this to my door (eventually). Imbibed a few samples at a local beer festival this spring & happy to finally have it from a bottle on my comfortable couch. Split with my stout-guzzling wife.

Black. After a brief, wispy, half-bald head rises on the pour, it’s 100% gone two minutes later, looking still & sinister. A beer to drown your enemies in (but what a waste…maybe drown your friends?). The nose is coconut & endless malts.

Medianoche – Coconut is thicker than my Sunday waffle batter. Borderline gummy chewable. Taste-wise it’s a simpler beer than I expected. I scoffed at the ‘brownie batter’ description but it’s on the mark & right up front. Well, batter with a shot of bourbon mixed in right after the eggs. Extended cut of coconut, pinch of brown sugar, serious malty sweetness throughout. Given a 10:30 AM wakeup time & a couple hours I’d love to take one of these solo.

Just what I expect from this line of stouts. Thick, sweet, heavy barrel, delicious. Excellent beer.

Thick and viscous like oil; impenetrable black body; no head but a bit of percolating carbonation; flat; sediment flecks tread along the top of the beer. Rich aroma; dark chocolate and roasted coffee; coconut. Enormous flavors of milk chocolate, fudge; coconut and bourbon; faint maraschino cherry and peppermint suggestion; subliminal earthy spiciness in the background. Dense, sludgy mouthfeel; heavy slipperiness; incredible residual sugar presence; syrupy; low-level alcohol warmth in the background.

What hath these brewer's created? Sure, a rather dark and dull appearance but the smell characteristics pick things up. Then, you come to the taste and mouthfeel. Jumpin' Jesus on a pogo stick! What an awe-inspiring experience. The depth, richness and complexity are nearly out of this world. A beer one needs to experience to fully appreciate what mere words struggle to convey.

2022 version poured from a 500ML bottle into a snifter. Pours very dark resembling motor oil. Very thick, which I enjoy. Solid coconut flavor that isn't over the top sweet but drinking more than a 500ml bottle would be a challenge.

500ml bottle from Tavour. Slow, thick pour, black as midnight, no head at all.
Aroma features light boozy notes, chocolate and heaps of coconut. Taste is sweet, chocolate and coconut, thick and syrupy. Luscious, sumptuous.
