Here’s what Oskar Blues had to say about it: 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.

Dustin’s Brewreview and Notes
Aroma: Medium-high roasted malt up front, fades to chocolate and really strong fresh coconut; no noticeable hop aroma; 11/12
Appearance: Opaque; Cream colored head with light head retention; soda-like bubbles; 3/3
Flavor: Big chocolate malt flavor; medium graham cracker characteristics; malt forward and fantastic coconut flavor! 17/20
Mouthfeel: Chewy, almost viscous body; Light carbonation provides a great balance for the style; lingering creaminess that makes the coconut flavor stand strong; 5/5
Overall: Fantastically balanced – dry stout with big chocolate and coconut and creaminess that really hits the palate well. 9/10
Dustin gives Oskar Blues Death by Coconut, a 45/50.
