Brewed with US 2-row malt, flaked rye, chocolate rye, and various English specialty malts, this medium-bodied beer features a rye spiciness balanced with dark chocolate and espresso, as well as copious amounts of toasted coconut. This beer pairs well with pulled pork, braised brisket, gorgonzola cheese and chocolate desserts.

This beer starts off with a huge chocolate aroma with a pleasant level of coconut blended in with the aroma and flavor. This is smoothly balanced with a hint of rye malt in the background giving a graham cracker perception that is quite wonderful. With all of the coconut and cracker flavors abounding, this still manages to convey all of the qualities of a very pleasant stout. The coconut is very nicely balanced rather than overpowering. A great holiday beer (for any holiday year-round)!
