K’PAUI: “Candy bar in a glass! The coconut billows out of the glass, sweet and tropical
and perfectly pairing with the chocolatey, slightly roasty malt for an effect that brought
me back to childhood slices of German chocolate cake. From that aroma you’d expect it
to be sticky-sweet, and all the sugars are not fermented away. But thanks to deft hopping
and careful malt selection K’Paui is able to deliver all that coconut and chocolate
character with enough balance — just the right amount of sizzling bitterness on the finish
— to invite further sips. As the soft, smooth and enveloping beer warms, the malty
chocolate emerges in the aroma and flavor, overtaking the still-there coconut as the
foremost flavor. It’s the kind of beer that figures to do well in small sips at a festival, but
because you get all that candy-bar flavor without the sweetness, it’s easy to go through a
whole tallboy or two.”
