12oz. bottle into mug.

A: Dark brown with a minimal head, resulting from an overly gentle pour. There's some good lace on the top, though.

S: Sweet chocolate, toasted coconut, pastry.

T/M: Sweet, nutty, toasty. Coconut is strong in the finish, while the front is sweet and chocolatey. No bitterness. Mouthfeel is fairly heavy, which is not surprising for how sweet it is. Tastes like a cake.

Overall: I like it, but it also doesn't resemble any other brown ale I've had. I can see how typical brown ale flavors play off and are enhanced by the coconut. I think the brewers could cut back on the sweetness, though.
