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.

this beer is incredible, every bit as good as they say it is, and fully worthy of the hype. leagues better than so many other beers that use the same ingredients, or claim to, truly a specimen. expensive for sure, i think they were fetching like 40 bucks a four pack or something at the brewery for this, but no doubt you get what you pay for with this one (and revision in general). satin luster on a dark brown but not quite black base, perhaps a little less viscous than anticipated, could be that its not barrel aged, which i dont miss at all, still leggy and sexy, even though the head is real short and short lived from the tap. the nose here is amazing, as good as it gets, the coconut is so obviously toasted, a deep nutty slightly caramelized toast on it, subtle hazelnut nuance to it, a little rum thing too kind of, then a whole heap of good vanilla, the authenticity is through the roof, and its desserty and rich without presenting as way too sweet, impressive! the cocoa is the least obvious of the extras, kind of melded in with the malt a bit, but its still chocolate forward, all of this goes so well together, its heaven for the nose! the flavor is almost there, more of the chocolate here for sure, but its still rightly dominated by the toasted coconut, man they must have put a whole ton of it in here, partially justifies the cost i reckon. layers of natural decadent vanilla and dark chocolate collide with a pretty dense grain base, lots of roast, espresso nuance, raisin and tobacco chewy sweetness, but its not over the top, trace smoke and char on the finish, gorgeous vanilla and alcohol warmth together, baked dessert character to this, but its also weirdly drinkable for what it is, two glasses was a delight, and i would have happily had a fair bit more if i didnt still have so many brews ahead of me on saturday! smooth and full feeling, but not as heavy as most. this is so refined and amazing, some of the best coconut flavor i have ever known in a beer!

16oz can. No dating information found.
Black colored body, with a garnet back lit edge. Brief tan colored head, which results in a cap of islands and ring. A few scattered spots of lacing are left behind.
Aroma is big with cacao and vanilla. Digging deeper finds the coconut.
Taste is confectionery sweet. Has the flavors of cacao and vanilla. Close to marshmallow. The coconut adds to the sweetness and sits beneath the main flavors. Dark roasted malts form the base. The coconut appears most in the aftertaste.
Thinner than medium mouth feel, but leaves some stickiness on the lips and tongue. Hides the higher ABV% well. Supportive carbonation.
Lacking a true taste of coconut but a true dessert beer.

Sweet milk chocolate, prominent coconut, and a hint of vanilla nose on this one! Taste follows with a soft and tasty, chocolate roasty malty, and vanilla-coconut finish. As it warms, some dark chocolate, roasty-malty bitterness comes out more and interferes with the coconut notes on the backend...that bitterness starts to linger a bit as well. This is a touch thin, but is still enjoyable to drink. This is pretty good!

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.

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.

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.
