Intro: A 440ml can, canned on 26th March 2019 and with a best before date of 26th March 2021. Poured into a snifter glass.
Appearance: Dark brown to black in colour with a half finger light tanned head that dissipated fairly quickly while leaving some nice lacing.
Aroma: Roasty, toasted coconut, coconut cream, chocolate truffle and coconut flakes.
Taste: Light roast, light sweetness, creamy, chocolate, coconut, coconut cream, light bitter finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with soft carbonation.
Overall: It drinks easy but I wasn’t too fond of the coconut creaminess aroma and flavours. I would have preferred it if it was more toasted coconuts or coconut flakes instead of coconut cream.
