Weldwerks Coconut Medianoche

What the brewers say

“Brewed with copious amounts of chocolate malts, crystal malts, and flaked oats, then boiled continuously for almost 36 hours. After fermentation, this massive imperial stout was aged in 7-year-old Breckenridge Distillery bourbon barrels for 18 months, then aged on almost 25 lbs/bbl of toasted coconut.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “So. Much. Coconut. Sharp booze followed by mellow chocolate. Like a Mounds candy bar with a shot of vodka.”

Flavor: “A Mounds candy bar. Dark chocolate and roast paired with toasted coconut. Great balance of the adjuncts. Finish is sweet, as you would expect, but still relatively balanced given the other significant aspects of the beer. Nice warming alcoholic boozy note on the finish without coming across overly hot.”

Overall: “A coconut-focused beer, to say the least. The coconut stands out from the chocolate. The finish is sweet and boozy, dark chocolate, with some dried-fruit bourbon. Really nice!”
