According to the brewery, an American Brown brewed with toasted coconut. Sounds better than it tastes. I find it a rather tart dark beer. Taste is more like a sharpish thin sort of stout. It's saved by a lot of quite mellow dark malt, and maybe something from the flavoring, though it certainly doesn't taste like coconut. Really dark in the pint glass with minimal foam.
More woody than coconutty. Slight nose of roast malt. A little dark caramel but not much sweetness. Not a bad quaff, but it would be better with some carbonation.
On tap at Pizza Port OB for $4.75 a pint.
01/14/2013 update - Had this at the Mission tasting room and liked it better. Sweet and nutty flavors but rather restrained, warm malt tones with coconut in the nose. Light body and slightly slick, and not a bad Brown Ale.
