A - copper-brown ale, for some reason I was expecting stout; it's topped with a thinner but creamy beige head
S - not much of a nose, slightly metallic, very faint cocoa and coconut but barely anything at all for aroma
T - toasted grain, brown sugar, bread crust, caramel, slightly nutty, metallic, earthy, herbal, faint cocoa and coconut on the finish but not much
M - light-medium body, lower carbonation, earthy hops on a semi-dry finish
O - really a disappointment here. This did not work for me at all. I don't know why I was expecting a chocolaty stout with some coconut flavor, but maybe that wouldn't have been a bad idea. Not that my preconceptions change my thoughts on this beer; this just wasn't that good at all.

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.

Appearance is a golden hue with white head and nice lace. Nose has notes of dry lager yeast, dry grain notes, light chocolate. The nose is rather muted. Taste starts with non descript malt character followed by some roast, toasted nut, and a touch of cocoa on the finish. Mouthfeel is fizzy and light bodied. Not too impressed by this one.

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.
