IanExceptional20 Apr 2010 In the best form so far and I have just fallen for this beer completely. I love the depth in the mouth, the quality of the flavours, that slightly odd thing that is possibly the coconut and it really just makes you feel happy.

AndrewExcellent10 Apr 2010 This was excellent. Black, powdery, slightly sour with a hint of coffee and hint of roasted malt. The finish was slightly sweet and tangy with some mild bitterness.
IanExcellent07 Apr 2010 Black with ruby edges. Disappearing dark beige head. I’m not a big fan of coconut, but I thought that this was pretty good. Nice thick malts, some choc coconut on aorma, like a dark chocolate Bounty bar. Good mouthfeel. I like the swallow and finish very much. Really good, some burnt malt bitterness on finish. Love the third of a pint. It’s good, really deep and satisfying with a bit of spice and sweetness from the coconut

AlenomoreExceptional10 Apr 2010 Needed this and fitting to finish the long day on a pint of this. Superbly tasty, dark roasted malts and mocha abound. Little short on coconut though? Top class.
