This is a Coconut, Vanilla and Chocolate Stout. What part of that sentence doesn’t excite you?? This rich and creamy 440 boi packs a reasonable 5.6% ABV.
You know how i love a good matte grip sticker on my tins? Those Rascals at Rascals Brewing adorned this one with a lovely purple one. It tells you everything you need to know.
Cracking her open its very much a “HELLO COCONUT” affair. The smell is sweet and roasted mocha. I dub thee – Mochanut! The pour is thin with a nice caramel head that isn’t going anywhere in a hurry. I feel sad that i have to disturb it to take a gulp.
The taste certainly is creamy. The vanilla is subtle with the chocolate and coconut evenly matched to duke it out. It isn’t as sweet as i thought it was going to be, but then that’s possibly a good thing. A fantastic dessert stout that would compliment a good roast dinner.
I think this is the closest a brewer has got to replicating a chocolate milkshake in my opinion. Mouthfeel is thin for a stout but you don’t feel like you’ve had a meal in a glass afterwards which in this case is a blessing.
This one delivered everything it said it would. I will be revisiting this one again 4.1 Mochanuts out of 5
