Coffee Coconut StoutCoffee Coconut Stout
Notes: As you may have guessed from the creative name, CCS is an 8.6% ABV stout brewed with heaps of toasted coconut and freshly roasted coffee from our friends at Zoe’s Cafe & Events here in Downtown Greeley. The sweet, creaminess of the toasted coconut offers a perfect complement to the complex character contributed the Mama Nelly’s coffee, a blend of four different roasts of the same direct-trade Peruvian beans.

16oz can poured into a snifter

A- pours deep black with a one finger creamy light khaki head that reduces to a ring around the edge

S- as advertised, aroma is equal parts coconut and coffee; the coconut really comes through, complimenting an earthy and herbal coffee note.

Undertones of chocolate and hazelnut

T- flavor follows the nose with plenty of coconut up front, followed by herbal espresso notes, hazelnut, vanilla cream and char. Undertones of chocolate & caramel. The finish offers more coffee and coconut

M- medium body with moderate carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel that turns cream into the finish

O- as advertised, a showcase of coffee and coconut, good stuff

Canned 20 days ago.

Pours near-black with minimal head. Coconut seems to kill a beer's head. This one at least puts up a fight.

The nose is tropical coconut, coffee, roast, and chocolate.

The taste is similar. Coconut, mocha, and cherry. The 8% ABV is completely hidden. Medium sweetness atop a solid milk stout base. The coconut character is natural and well-integrated.

The mouthfeel is substantial up front and lighter on the finish, making for an easy drinker.

Overall, I really like this. I'm picky about coconut beers, but this has an overall smoothness and balance to it that makes it memorable.

Picked this up with many others on a recent work trip to Fort Collins, Colo. Everything I’ve had from WeldWerks has been fantastic and I expected this one to be in that mix as well. Wished I could get my hands on some of their BA stouts, but this would have to do tonight. Online description read, “As you may have guessed from the creative name, CCS is an 8.6% ABV stout brewed with heaps of toasted coconut and freshly roasted coffee from our friends at Zoe’s Cafe & Events here in Downtown Greeley.

Poured a pitch black color with two fingers of khaki-tan head that thinned out rather quickly. Slow moving bubbles creeping up along the sides of the glass. Good spotty lacing. Very good retention. (Sight - 4.00)

Smelled almost a 50/50 mix of coffee and coconut. In order got black coffee, toasted coconut, roasted nuts, vanilla, dark chocolate, roasted barley, caramel, ashtray, semi-char wood. Pretty much the same from the can. (Smell - 4.00)

Tasted similar, but better than the nose. Got black coffee, toasted coconut, roasted nuts, bitter dark chocolate, roasted barley, vanilla, char wood and caramel. (Taste - 4.25)

Full body. Sticky texture. Average carbonation. Long, roasty finish. (Feel - 4.25)

Liked this one a lot. Excellent. (Overall - 4.25)

Had on tap. At first I thought it was an imperial stout given how dark and viscous the pour, plus the smell was rich with heavy and dark coffee, malts, chocolate, and on the end coconut. Feel was still heavy for a single stout, but it drank lighter than tasted, which is ideal. Taste was exactly as smell indicated, dark and heavy flavors, but near the finish with the coffee and coconut brightening there is a soil/salty element that seems out of place. Still, not enough to take away from enjoying this flavorful and dark stout

Nice dark stout that pours a little thin for such a big beer. The smell is amazing and full of coffee, coconut and dark chocolate with a nice sweet aroma that makes it smell like a sweetened iced coffee. Sweet malt and coconut up front is followed by a blast of bitter coffee and dark chocolate. Finish is bitter and compliments the sweetness. Pretty great beer.

Pours a thin dark brown with a thick tan head that recedes slowly and leaves generous lacing. The aroma is dark roasted malts, chocolate, coffee and coconut. Flavor follows the nose, sweet but not overly so. Feel is a bit thin for a stout. Very nice beer that I will look for again. My can is 8% AVB.

A-Last of a 4 pack. canned on 11/6/17. Aggressive pour yields 3 fingers of tan big bubbled head atop a black brew.
S-Lots of coconut on top of chocolaty malts. Coffee comes out in the back end.
T-Coconut biggie. Quite sweet. Chocolate and coffee notes abound behind the coconut strength.
M-Medium bodied and carbonated. Sweet and quick finish.
O-A dessert stout. I like my coconut stouts and this one is right up there. Lots of coconut, sweet and easy to drink. Plenty of chocolate to carry the torch.

L: Pours a dark black-brown with a small tan head that dissipates rather quickly and leaves no lacing on the glass.

S: Notes of smooth velvety chocolate, with a strong earthy if slightly fruity coffee and then some sweet coconut intermingles with the other flavors.

T: Earthy coffee with notes of fruit, mixed with some bittersweet and smooth velvety chocolate, and then sweet coconut balances it out. A medium coffee bitterness fills out the palate.

F: Medium to full body and very creamy mouthfeel.

O: This is an absolutely fantastic stout, highly recommended.

Apparently, Coffee Coconut Stout is one of two special drops hitting the Minnesota market. I had my hopes up that we'd be seeing them stick around - I really love Alpha Bits! I didn't have a chance to visit the brewery when last I was in Colorado, but - next time,

Coffee Coconut pours a slightly thin brown-black. It smells terrific - roasty, warm coffee, with plenty of sweet coconut. Taste follows suit - the flavors play well together, and while I have had experiences with coconut lingering unpleasantly in the past, that is not the case with this beer. It's fairly clean and finishes nicely. As noted, it is a bit thin - I'd like a little more body to it, as it feels like one could drink six of these... then possibly die. There are worse ways to go, eh.

This would be a go-to for me, were it sticking around our market. Come back soon, WeldWerks, and stick around this time!

16 oz can dated 11/06/17. Not the freshest coffee beer and interesting that the brewery would send this to a new market. Looks good with a dark body and dense head that slowly settles. Coffee and coconut is an interesting combination and not one I would think of combining. Strong coconut aroma with faint coffee undertones. Hints of chocolate and lightly roasted malt. The flavor is dominated by the coconut but it does have a coffee aftertaste. Not getting a lot of roasted malt flavor and to me this tastes more like a porter with the chocolate malt. Nicely carbonated that gives this 8% ABV beer a smooth texture. Obviously a bit past its prime but that is what the brewery sent to us.

Poured from 16oz can into glass. Canned on date stamped on can bottom is '11/06/17'.
Deep brown colored body, with brown highlights when presented to light. Two finger light tan head settles to thick cap. Just a myriad of lacing webs on glass.
Coffee forward aroma, with lots of coconut joining in, along with dark malts. Very straightforward.
Taste first recognizes coffee (a very flavorful blend as described by the brewer), then sweet coconut (almost vanilla like), and dark malts fill in. Coffee continues into the after taste, with the lighter coconut adding balance to the slight coffee bitterness. Coconut taste is of the flaked flesh taste rather than any artificial add on.
Fuller mouth feel, with some mouth coating.
Very tasty and well balanced stout (good base) with the flavorful additions of coffee and coconut. Coffee is not too bitter, and the coconut presents as more fresh than artificial. Because of this, the beer is very enjoyable from first colder sip to final warmer sip.

Light tan head. Black/dark brown color.

Great stout for a few bucks a can. The coffee and coconut both shine. This would be a great go to shelf beer. Nice chocolate and cocoa. Smooth and easy drinking. Well done.

Deceptively smooth and drinkable, the stout of WeldWerks has the added ingredients of coconut and coffee entering the flavor fray for a new take on balance, complexity and challenge to balance the inherent roasted taste of stout.

Black, bold and boisterous, their dark and succulent beer simply named Coffee Coconut Stout is topped with a creamy, honeycomb whipped topping. Rich aromas of burnt sugars, vanilla, nuttiness and light cream skirt over the espresso, cocoa and earthy scents that are natural to stout. Moderately sweet on the front of the tongue, a taste of roasted marshmallow, toasted graham cracker and scorched milk rolls onto the tastebuds first.

Richly textured, the smooth and creamy stout releases its sweetness slowly while the sharper and soilish notes of coffee, char, campfire and burnt toast hit the savory sensors on the middle palate. Soothed with the taste of coconut, cream and vanilla, these softer elements of complexity also offset the spur of roasted grains for a rounded, bittersweet and smooth palate late in the session.

Full bodied but drinking remarkable mild and even somewhat crisp, the imperial status stout resists any temptation to become thick or chewy. Instead, its somber texture has no hints of the strength within while its journey onto the after palate brings a rich and creamy taste of coconut milk with a coffee overcast.

12/23/17 impression at a tasting from a can:

Vivid rich coconut. Dark malt sweetness. Balance is impeccable. Coffee could be more present, but its subtle earthiness is lovely.

16oz can, served in a snifter glass. Pours a darker cola brown body, fairly dark, with a one finger thick offwhite head, lots of lacing, appropriate retention. Smell is rich toasted coconut, mahogany, roasted coffee and a bit of milk chocolate to go along with a bit of cocoa. Flavour is even better than the nose, wow. The coconut really pops here, with a nice toasted coconut flavour that lasts throughout the beer, even into the finish. Wonderful. The coffee provides a bit of balance in the background, keeping it from tasting too artificial or over-the-top, without taking over the show. Milk chocolate, a bit of cocoa with a touch of grainy roast rounds things out. Fantastic coconut flavour, it is impressive especially on the finish when everything else seems to fade out and you're left with coconut- and you already had a strong coconut up front. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, good carbonation, reasonably thick without being too syrupy. Lots of toasted coconut on the finish. This is probably my favourite Weldwerks beer so far, though I haven't had very many so far, admittedly.

16 oz can, canned 10/27/17. Pours dark brown with a medium creamy tan head that retains well and laces the glass some.

The aroma is sweet perfumey coconut with some lactose and roast coffee.

The flavor is very sweet coconut and lactose with a milky roast coffee finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, interesting but too sweet, milky and perfumey.

Big thanks to Jeff for this one. 16oz. can into Night Shift stemware. Shared with schen9303.

I'm surprised to say this one actually smells exactly as I expected it to. Huge sweet lactose and coffee notes with a giant dose of coconut. Really impressive nose. Beers opens heavy on the coconut. A light saltiness mixed with coconut meat blends nicely with lactose sweetness, chocolate and cold brew. A touch of tart roastiness from the coffee rounds this out. Impressive. Body is light with ample carbonation. Prickly and thin in the mouth but smooth on the palate and accented going down with a soft aftertaste.

The feel of this one falls a little short for me. A touch thin and too carbonated. Otherwise, the flavor and nose are spot on. A pretty impressive beer.

This very nice for a stout. Smooth and not overly sweet, the coffee is not super prominent but there are buckets of coconut in here. Overall nice, but at 16 dollars a crowler without barrel aging, i sort of expect it to be pretty decent

32oz crowler $11.99. Dark black, huge head. Aroma is mild coconut but the flavor is a blast of delicious coconut. I did not pick up much coffee at all but that is ok. Solid stout.

this beer could be so much better than it is, or at least i should have enjoyed it so much more. its a great beer first of all, a big rich black stout with the right amount of added flavor, really balanced and intense at the same time, very well made. the problem though, is that i identified a funny element in the flavor that turned me off so much that i couldnt really enjoy the rest of it. not to ruin it for you reading this, because hopefully you are reading this after the drink, but i swear on my life i taste that funky dairy goat cheese weirdness right before the finish. i dont know if its a product of the coconut, if something has turned, if there actually as a milk product in this beer, but that farmy funky cheese element is there. not cheesy like crappy wild yeast usage, but cheesy like soft goats cheese actually tastes. aside from that i like how forward the coffee and coconut are. the coconut is a little sun tan lotion-like at times, and is quite sweet, but thats almost preferable to the coconut beers where it cant be tasted. the coffee is awesome, big and earthy and bitter and penetrating, rocking all the way through the whole beer. a little sweeter than it needs to be, but that goat cheese thing is what throws me. if i didnt pick up on that though i would be raving about this thing, so dont let me ruin it for you...
