Bottle split as the first beer on day 1 of Coconut/Cinnamon Death 2017. Batch 3, bottle 834. Pours pitch black with a small super dark brown saturated dense head. Biggest aroma from the bottle I’ve ever smelled. Instantly filled the room. Huge maple and coffee bomb. Light peppery notes, but mostly just sweet fruity coffee. Milk chocolate, fudge, vanilla, subtle liquorice, subtle roast, dark fruits, large nutella finish after been sitting in the glass for a good 20 minutes. God. Damn. Taste has the same massive coffee and maple, vanilla, caramel, milk chocolate, dry cocoa, dark berries. Worthy of being in the absolute top.

Zajebisty beczkowo-syropoklonowy aramat z tlem bombonierkowo kawowym. Bardzo gesty. W smaku owce, ciut ostry, ciut kwaskowaty. Aromat > smak

Small sample with massive thanks to Kermis and Maakun. Black goo. Very heavy viscosity. Deep roasted chocolate malts, big espresso coffee, pure chocolate, coconut, hazlenut, wrapped in sweet bourbon, maple syrup and vanilla. Massive sweetness and proper roasty bitter. Full body, no carbonation left in this sample. Lovely slick and muddy feel. Amazing to get the chance to sample this! --- Beer merged from original tick of Kentucky Brunch Brand Stout on 09 Jan 2018 at 13:15 - Score: 9

Small sample, massive thanks to mr K!!! Almost black with barely any head. Massive fudge, coffee, bourbon, milk chocolate, maple syrup, lots of molasses. They all fight to be the main aroma here, I’d say it’s mostly dark chocolate and molasses, but the other aromas complement this very well. Very sweet with some roasted tartness and cocoa bitterness. Full, even thick bodied. It’s a bit hard to rate from a small sample, but it’s damn tasty for sure. Love it!
