I was going to describe this as an Almond Joy bar in a glass, but it looks like the brewer has this covered. Spot on. Beautiful deep blackish-brown color, with a thick tan head. Mouthfeel is exactly what I look for in a stout: heavy, a little syrupy, silky, and smooth. Huge aromas and flavors of coconut and milk chocolate, with lots of sweetness and a little roasty bitterness. This is a BIG beer, and a little goes a long way.
