Pours jet black. Smell is hard to pick anything out. Taste mostly pineapple, with a bit of coconut. Not sure I would do again. Possibly if the base were an Imperial Stout, it would work better.

A: Pours an opaque yet still clear very dark brown approaching jet black in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation along the edges of the glass and light to moderate cola brown + garnet red highlights. The beer has a two finger tall foamy beige head that reduces to a large patch of mottled thin film covering the entire surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of tropical/pineapple initially followed by light aromas of roasted + chocolate malts and toasted coconut.

T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of roasted + chocolate malts with a light hint of roasted coffee. That is followed by light flavors of toasted coconut and a light to moderate flavor of tropical/pineapple. Light to moderate amounts of lingering roasty bitterness in the finish.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly thin with a light amount of dryness in the finish.

O: Definitely an interesting brew - some kind of Black IPA/Stout hybrid with the tropical flavors and thinner body of a black IPA but the roasty flavors of a stout without a lot of hoppiness. Fairly easy to drink but I wish the aroma and flavors were a little more in sync - not nearly the tropical flavors as there is in the aroma.

tastes like cotton candy and stout. cool concept, but this should seriously never be done again. gross and artificial.
