Description 

Intense fresh cacao flavors swirl with popping coconut aromas, all supported by a semi-sweet porter made from loads of dark chocolate and extra dark caramel malt. This limited release specialty comes around once a year to satisfy that sweet tooth, so get 'em while you can before they disappear. At 6.5% ABV and 25 IBUs, this choconut goodness will have you yellin' "Pass. Dash. Hit." all winter long.

Medium-high coconut aromas deftly mingle with dark chocolate and earthy coffee. Very light flowery hops and a bready caramel malt backbone round out the clean aroma. It’s all about the roast and coconut in this beer.

Gorgeous in any light, Death by Coconut pours an inky black with a tall, finely textured brown head that’s persistent. The initially intense coconut flavor quickly gives way to bittersweet chocolate, light caramel and bready malt. Despite the lower hop bitterness, the beer is balanced from the higher level of roast. The semi-sweet finish allows the caramel, chocolate and coconut to all linger. The higher body of the beer, moderate carbonation and smooth, warming alcohol further emphasize the dessert nature of this beer.

Death by Coconut is a sinfully delicious beer that weaves caramel sweetness, dark chocolate and coconut seemlessly into a post-dinner beer. Skip the Mounds bar and head straight to your snifter to enjoy this delight.
