Schlafly Beer Toasted Coconut Stout

What the brewers say

N/A

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Rich coconut up front, with some chocolate and sweetness. Some earthy, floral, and tropical aromas blend well with bready and roasty malt. The malt presence is medium to medium-low and provides an interesting contrast to the coconut aroma.”

Flavor: “Lots of flavor up front, with rich chocolate and coconut blending together nicely. There is a smoothness about this beer that carries from the start and all the way through the finish. The earthy roast notes sit in the back of the sip, letting the sweet chocolate and coconut shine. The coconut gives a really intense tropical flavor, with slight tropical fruit (pineapple) that provides a slight sweetness with a little acid. Some notes of toffee and nut in the malt provide some balance but didn’t quite hold up to the fruit—this beer isn’t in your face with the roast.”

Overall: “I don’t normally like coconut, but I might drink this one again. The chocolate, toffee, and coconut made for an Almond Joy beer. It’s sweet, nutty, and fruity, but neither the sweetness nor the roast were overpowering. Really enjoyable.”
