Bomber Friday: Death By Coconut

It’s Friday, so grab your favorite six-pack on the way home from work or enjoy a new beer. Bombers are 22 fl oz bottles of beer that often contain a brewery’s elite or unique concoction. Like a good bottle of wine, they are great for sharing and sipping 🙂 Stay tuned for periodic blasts of bomber Fridays.

The Death By Coconut is not quite a bomber but it is a big boy! This crafty beer by Oskar Blues (Lyons, CO) is incredible! Death By Coconut is an Irish Porter that comes in at 6.5%. I get mostly chocolate in the aroma. It pours a dark color with a tan head that dissipates quickly. This porter has a much lighter body than most making it easy to drink. There are nice chocolaty and roasty flavors up front and then it finishes with soft coconut. In a 200 barrel tank over 400 lb of desiccated coconut is thrown in to making this beer!

Death By Coconut is only a seasonal beer so make sure to get it quick! This beer is sure to bring some cheer in this holiday season 😉

In the coconut mood, I paired this beer with a chocolate coconut cluster. The ingredients are included here to show how simple these are to make; click on the link for the full recipe.

    • Right?! So glad you liked it! I also love the coconut porter from Broken Compass in Breckenridge, CO. However, they don’t distribute at all 😦 Also, to keep getting beer posts, sign up at lillysuesbitesandbrews.com I won’t be posting on this wordpress blog for much longer. Cheers!

  2. Sounds really nice. You’re right about it sounding like a great holiday beer. I doubt I’ll be able to find that exact beer over here, but I’ll have to seek out a coconut porter or stout of some variety! Nice fall backdrop too, by the way.

    • Thank you! If you get Oskar Blues distributed where you are then you should be able to find but if not.. :/ Good luck finding something! If it’s super tasty, let me know what it is! 🙂
