The second beer of Christmas was More the Merrier from Two Bros. The beer a dark hazy amber with slightly off-white head that is leaving a spotty lace. The scent carries a little coconut and milk chocolate. The taste is a little funky....almost like a watery version of bailey's irish cream...perhaps. I am not getting much coconut...but there is certainly milk chocolate. The mouthfeel is medium in body with subtle carbonation. Overall this beer is ok,....glad I have the chance to try it....but I don't think I would get another bomber of it.

Oh hey, new Two Brothers beer. Random impulse buy activated.
Going along with the "crudely labeled bomber trend" I see... guess that's a local thing now.
Make sure you stick a big awkward brewery logo right in the middle of it!

Is the actual beer any good? No.

Pours an odd pale brown out of the bottle like a dirty lager. Copperish brown in the glass, weird sediment suspended in the glass is just not at all appetizing. Creamy parchment colored foam laces nicely in the glass, settling to a broken skim and collar around the sides.

Odd smell of overcooked grain and faint cocoa.

Watery and thin, dull brown ale flavors of toasted malt and faint, chalky b-grade instant cocoa. No coconut to speak of... Meh. Dry aftertaste, slightly bitter. Just lacking all around. Watery, bland, and lacking any advertised chocolate or coconut flavors. Not worth the effort at all.

Waste of $8.29, should have known better.

The Two Brothers Brewery is just a few miles from my house, so I went there to see what was new and I found this 1 pint 6 oz. bottle of chocolate/coconut ale. Couldn't wait to get it home and try it. No freshness date.

The beer poured a clear caramel color with a big creamy 3-finger head that lasted several minutes and left an incredible amount of lacing.

Very weak nose. Where's the chocolate and coconut?

This beer actually tastes good... BUT... it's not what it's supposed to be. It has a slight caramel sweetness to it, some bready malt, a little nuttiness, and a dash of cocoa powder. Hops are earthy and mild at just 18.1 IBU's. What it doesn't have is any coconut flavor whatsoever and the chocolate isn't very pronounced either. It still tastes good, but as a chocolate.coconut ale it's disappointing.

Light bodied with moderate carbonation.

Nice, easy drinking beer, but disappointing as a chocolate/coconut ale.

22 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. Another new beer to me from Two Brothers, acquired at the local beer store. "Chocolate coconut ale" classified here on BeerAdvocate as a fruit / vegetable beer. I have no idea what to expect.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter.

A - Pours a coppery dark ruby colored body with some orange highlights when held to the light, and lots of fine dark sediment floating in the glass. One finger of thin off-white head. Fat rings of lacing.

S - Smell is of grains, musty yeast presence, slight nuttiness, apple & other assorted indistinct herbal / grassy fruitiness, and a faint hint of powdery cocoa. Pretty unappealing aroma.

T - Taste is of dried bready malt, sugary powdered cocoa, grain / corn, crisp yeast, herbal earthiness, and some nuttiness. The taste is definitely better than the aroma, but seriously, where is the chocolate and the coconut in this thing?

M - Feel is crisp, smooth, and clean, with minimal stickiness & bitterness on the palate. Faint cocoa aftertaste. Medium bodied with good carbonation.

Overall, this thing should have been a stout and it wasn't, and I don't exactly know what the hell it is trying to be. As it was, the beer itself wasn't bad, but it advertised itself as a "chocolate coconut ale" and failed to deliver any coconut, and barely any chocolate. Not bad by any means, but based on what they were going for, I'd say this was a fail.

Two Brothers The More The Merrier ---3/5.
