Who's been drinking this

The smell of coconut is quite strong, and the flavor that opens it is buttery and pleasant. The finish was more off-putting, an oddly sweet, burnt plastic kind of thing. Given my previous review, seems like this was a step down.
I thought this was much more successful than the Peppermint variant, mostly because the coconut was strong enough (and sweet enough) to counteract and smoothen the heavily roasted nature of the base beer. Very nice.
