  • Purchased at Flight Bottle Shoppe. No date on can. Assumed picked up fresh.

    Pours opaque. Mocha foam covers but it comes in late on a vigorous pour, quickly becoming a fart in the wind. No lacing.

    Aroma is huge. Coconut, vanilla, and cocoa. The blend of aromas also give me ideas of fresh American oak.

    Taste is just as big as the aroma. Vanilla and coconut are foremost. Lingering coconut and vanilla leaves the sense with oily tobacco and brown sugar. This combination really lingers and eventually creates a large sweet linger, making it a bit rough.

    Big body and possibly medium carbonation. Sugars stick to the lips. Alcohol burn, maybe, there isn't much to talk about there. Dry.

    Fantastic aroma and flavor on this beer; just make sure you like vanilla and coconut. Almost makes me forget about the lack of foam/lacing that would make this beer much prettier. The price point doesn't make me happy. Enjoy!
