River North Coconut Mr. Sandman

What the brewers say

“Toasted Coconut Mr. Sandman uses ten pounds per barrel of toasted coconut for a decadent beer deserving a place beside the world’s finest desserts.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Nutty coconut with a grassy hops character, hints of licorice and chocolate. Plus moderate malt sweetness and a light alcohol note.”

Flavor: “Medium coconut with chocolate and light coffee spiciness. Coconut and light chocolate, roast and light alcohol. Lighter body for the alcohol level with moderate carbonation that presents itself at the end. Medium roast character mixed with a light spiciness.”

Overall: “Simple, coconut, chocolate, and a underlining alcohol warming. A bit more complexity rather than a coconut bomb would be preferable. Bland in comparison to other examples of the session. As it warms there is a bit of roasty coconut.”
