A banging Imperial stout brewed with coconut and a Caturra coffee from Costa Rica.
Taste: Creamy, dessert-like coconut followed by a rush of Turkish coffee - earthy, tarry, balanced by the taste of plums and blackberry. As the beer warms, chocolate notes start to shine, with hints of caramelised sugar layering on top of the roasted coffee. Finally, the oiliness of the coconut and the smooth coffee crash down the tongue, lingering and leaving their seductive taste until the inevitable next sip.
Appearance: Pitch black with a lingering, short brown head.
Nose: Decadent, burnt coconut notes, with espresso liqueur. Chocolate and sweet malts, with a port wine, raisin like character.

Hops: Magnum, HBC472, Toasted coconut flakes, Costa Rican coffee
