Notes: Mountains of freshly-toasted coconut, loads of cacao nibs and thousands of Madagascar vanilla beans on top of a rich imperial stout base round out this confectionary treat in a glass.

Dark brown appearance with a slight light brown head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is a mild blend of vanilla coconut and coco. Taste is much more prominent blend of vanilla coconut and coco. I little thin.

16 oz can into a tulip glass.

Pours a near pitch black color with a big fat finger of sudsy tan head. Decent retention. Leaves a crown of lacing along the top of the glass.

Aromas of caramel chews, tootsie rolls, fresh brownies, and toasted coconut. There's some light nuttiness with a hint of toffee and roasted malts.

The flavor is loaded with milk chocolate, Almond Joy candy, chocolate chip brownies, toasted coconut shavings, peanuts, and sticky caramel with some light roasted malt and vanilla. Very sweet, but not cloying.

The feel is full bodied with lower carbonation. Very soft and sticky, with some light booziness.

Overall, this is a great imperial stout. It's definitely a "pastry" style stout with sweet, candy-like flavors. However it's surprisingly balanced, never becoming too sweet, even as it warms. Very well done.

Ordered 16 oz can, from Tavour, chilled and poured into an imperial pint glass.

Look: dark black, tan finger sized head that dissipated leaving a small tan foam on the top, further leaving a nice tan lacing down the glass as we drank.
Smell: smells like sticky fudge, chocolate and coco notes, followed by small coconut. Small roast, but mostly chocolate brownie.
Taste: sticky sweet chocolate up front, fudgey brownies, followed by coconut, vanilla and roast. Booze is well hidden behind the flavors (11% ABV). No hop presence.
Feel: fully body, light tickle of carbonation, syrupy, somewhat drying.

Such a good beer. If you like stouts that put the flavors together in chocolatey ways, this is your beer. This is exactly what is advertised on the can. Fudge is sooooo good! Even though the coconut is the first on the label, the fudge is the front runner. The coconut comes in much later but it’;s presence makes the fudge possible. Seriously savor this one. Such a good beer.

this one of the better "pastry" stouts - like having desert in a can creamy sweet stout

16oz can into a goblet. NO freshness dating.

Looks pretty good in the glass. Pours like used motor oil. Black body with a small tan head which shrinks to a ring and faint covering. Little in the way of lacing

Manages to smell sweet.

On tasting, well, this is just delicious. Good chocolate flavors, nice coconut without being slick. Vanilla is very faint, but present. Abv warmth not hidden at all. And to balance this, there is a wonderful tempered roast.

Mouth close to full, finish a mouthwatering sweet roast.

Overall, damn fine pastry stout, superbly balanced with a measured roast. Quality brewing here.

Poured into a Fremont small snifter. Pours a very dark mahogany brown, appearing opaque black in the glass with a thin dark khaki head that dissipates to patches with light lacing. Aroma of dark toasted malt, vanilla, milk chocolate and coconut. Flavor follows, but with a little nuttiness, particularly in the finish. Medium bodied with moderate creaminess, nice mouth feel. Although nuts are not included as an ingredient, this has an eerie resemblance to an Almond Joy. Great chocolate flavor, just the right amount of coconut and the unexpected nut flavor that sometimes reminded me of almonds, but also some peanut butter notes. Don't know where that comes from, but the result is a superb pastry stout. Rich, almost Russian imperial body supports the adjunct flavors. A bit sweet and definitely a dessert stout. I'm a big fan of this one.

Black with brown highlights appear in the body, light brown colored cap. Super nutty smell with milk chocolate and hints of vanilla. Tastes of chocolate milk with coconut joy, wow potent and pure. Lighter body but smooth and textured from coconut, creamy and lush tones set the dessert feel. Delicious dessert stout for all coconut lovers

16oz can from Tavour. Dark brown pour, just a few bubbles, still. Aroma is toasted coconut, chocolate, roast malts. Taste is sweet, dark chocolate, more coconut, hint of vanilla and the roast malts show up as tiny bitter bite at the finish. Mildly dry.

A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a quarter finger high tan colored head that died down but never completely faded away.
S: Moderate aromas of milk chocolate are present in the nose along with notes of coconuts.
T: The taste follows the smell but has stronger flavors of coconuts that linger into the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied and rather smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I enjoyed the combination of milk chocolate and coconut flavors in the taste of this beer. It very drinkable considering its strength and hid any traces very well from the taste.

Serving type: can

Simply incredible 16oz can poured into a snifter.

A: Black pour, not quick pitch black but oily and dense with a small dark mocha head.

S: Damn near perfect; confectionary and sweet notes of coconut, cream, vanilla and chocolate. Mild roastiness and coffee as it warms.

T: Lives up to the nose with an incredible impression of coconut cream (shocked there isn’t lactose in this?) with that sweetness of confectionary sugars and desserts. The vanilla is equally as strong, with a good dose of chocolate character and a minor roasted bitterness to offset the sweetness on the finish.

MF: Smooth and sweet, sticky and full bodied, with almost no heat from the plus-11% abv.

O: Revision is killing the stout game now which is incredible considering how good their hazy IPA’s are. This is phenomenal. Rich and pastry-like but not cloying to me.

Coconut-cream pie with chocolate, in a glass.
