In A Daze Coconuts Anpan Stout : Aroma & Taste
In A Daze Coconuts Anpan Stout poured out a pitch black colour with a tan coloured head that seemed to last for ages, and left thick brown streaks down the side of the glass. The aroma was a cacophony of smells – some sweet red bean paste, some creamy lactose aroma, a bit of oatiness, a faint smidgen of acridness from the black malt, and also some toasted coconut aroma for good measure. Talk about a lot going on in a single beer. The aroma was generally pleasant and well balanced, but well, there was a lot going on in In A Daze Coconuts Anpan Stout.
The body was smooth from the get go with no discernible off flavours. But to be honest, if there had been, I doubt I could have tasted them through all the flavours that were going on – an explosion for the taste buds when warmed up for sure. The sweet beans balanced well against the toasted coconut like flavour, with some of the black malt coming through to add some bite. There was touch of nuttiness from the oats and then some creaminess from the lactose. In A Daze Coconuts Anpan Stout finished with a lingering roasted quality from the black malts as well as the coconut with just a touch of sweetness.
In A Daze Coconuts Anpan Stout : The Bottom Line
In A Daze Coconuts Anpan Stout is a mad beer that somehow works and is not overly sweet either.
