Best Quote During Tasting
Tacos are worth dying for.
|Aroma - Milk chocolate and subtle coconut are the only two players in this game. Toasted? A little. Coconut? Slightly. Toasted coconut? Kinda. It was all there, it was just underwhelming|
|Appearance - The beer pours a deep brown with a thin, tan head made up of tiny bubbles that form a circle around the edges and a slick film in the center.|
|Flavor - The beer had a lot more roasted flavor than the aroma let on. The coconut was much bigger as well. There was chocolate (milk chocolate if I had to specify), and sweet coconut but the coconut was very slight. Beyond that, there was a little bit of caramel. It's just a big, sweet, chocolate bomb with a wee bit of coconut.|
|Mouthfeel - The carbonation is medium and the body is medium+. It has a much bigger body than I ever anticipated and it's slick on the tongue.|
Overall Impression - The coconut was weak compared to what was expected and that's why the scores were low in aroma and flavor. Were it just a sweet stout, it would've been in the high 3's or even a 4 overall. I don't like coconut in cakes and I hate coconut water. If there was one person ready to pick up on and taste the coconut, it's me. However, I just didn't get that much coconut out of this beer. I went online to see what other people said. It seemed half said the coconut was crazy big and half said they could barely taste it. I actually opened two bottles of this one to make sure I wasn't going crazy and they both were light on the coconut as described above.
At the end of the day, it was a smooth, low ABV stout with some roast behind it. Overall, that is a winning combo. I just wished there was some more coconut that was there to make it closer to what was expected.
