16oz can poured into a snifter

A- pours a thick jet black with a one-finger foamy khaki head that disappears completely

S- lots of coconut and herbal coffee up front, followed by aromas of marshmallows, vanilla, milk chocolate, caramel, brown sugar and a hint of charred malt

T- rich chocolate and caramel notes up front are followed by espresso and mocha. Mid palate gives notes of creamy marshmallow and vanilla bean, as well as caramel and molasses. The finish gives more sweet chocolate and coconut that continues with a boozy linger

M- medium-heavy body with moderate carbonation leads to a creamy mouthfeel that continues into a warming finish

O- a bold pastry stout that makes for a good evening sipper

L: Poured from a tallboy can to a pint glass. Had a dark brown / black color and a thick, opaque consistency. There was a quarter inch of foamy, tan-colored, fairly long-lasting head. No lacing to speak of.

S: A sweet and enticing aroma of coconut, chocolate, coffee, vanilla, malt, and marshmallows.

T: Tasted of good shot of coffee (had a warming factor), a lot of marshmallows (sweet and prominent), some chocolate (a good pairing with the marshmallows), a bit of malt (a subtle presence muted by the other ingredients), a tinge of vanilla, and coconut as well. This is a big, sweet, powerful flavor. Quite delicious.

O: A fair amount of carbonation with a super smooth finish. Medium- to full-bodied.

O: An excellent, thoroughly enjoyable stout. Drinkable.

Poured from a 16oz can into a tulip glass

Look: Opaque black with a thin mocha head

Smell: Toasted coconut, coffee, dark chocolate, and marshmallows.

Taste: Decadent chocolate, coffee, and rich toasted coconut. Like a liquid almond joy.

Feel. Thick. Oily. Coats the glass and the palate. Mild carbonation. Medium alcohol. Mild bitterness. No acidity.

Overall: A real treat. A bit much for a whole can but still pleasant to drink. Wild.

Poured moderately hard from a can into a snifter glass, forming a finger of light brown head before fading to a ring of lacing. Deep brown coffee color. Smell is a slightly sweet coconut, not too strong. Taste is an interesting mix of chocolate, marshmallow, and coconut. Sweet, but not excessive like some marshmallow flavored stouts can be. Coconut and chocolate are pleasant. Medium bodied with a mild and smooth carbonation. Good dessert stout if you like chocolate and coconut.
