Just picked up a growler of this over lunch. Had to try this beer before they ran out. Drank from my Surly nonic pint glass.
Appearance- Pours a fairly clear brown with hints of ruby and a small quarter finger sandy tan head. The head dissipates fairly quickly (assuming from the coconut oils) leaving no cap and a super thin collar.
Smell- The coconut is by far and away the first thing I smell. It’s pretty rich smelling with a nutty bite and hints of vanilla. Maybe just a touch of chocolate but it’s really light and earthy. That’s about it.
Taste- A lot like the nose as the coconut is the first thing you taste but it isn’t as dominate as the aroma. The beer is very nutty in the sense of actual nuts (rather than coconut) too. Think toasted pecans and macadamia nuts. The chocolate is a bit more noticeable in the taste than the smell as either the cocoa nibs or Belgium dark chocolate adds a sort of dark bakers chocolate thing. The finish is surprising bitter as a hop bite actually makes its way in. It’s lightly citric in tone and sort of lingers on.
Mouthfeel- Surprisingly ‘hefty’ body with a medium feel, light carbonation and a somewhat creamy, oily feel.
Drinkability- Really tasty beer that confuses the shit out of me. I have no idea how they get that much coconut goodness into a beer. Like 3 Hour Tour the beer suffers just slightly in the drinkability category but it’s so freaking good it’s okay. Another coconut winner!
