From the brewer

This year’s release of B-Bomb is aged in 8–12-year-old American Oak bourbon barrels and is a blend of 9, 12, and 24-month old barrel-aged Winter Ale. This special edition adds cinnamon and toasted coconut to complement the oak, cacao, leather, toffee, and dark coffee notes achieved from its extended barrel aging and barrel blending. Each barrel contributes a different note, and combining each barrel to create a coherent tone is a distinct art and true pleasure. Please do enjoy this unique barrel-aged ale today but know that Cinnamon Coconut B-Bomb will age gracefully for years to come.

Weird, but it'll do. Starts smooth, with candy-bar like coconut smoothness. The cinnamon is just barely in the background as a hint, but over time there's a harsh bitterness that builds up that seems like it might be coming from the spice. Overall, I'm not convinced there's any reason to mess with the old coconut variant.
