Elevation Beer Company - Coconut Oil Man
Serving Temperature:50–57° F
Suggested Glassware:Tulip, Snifter, or Teku Glass
Where the standard Oil Man offers up an immense degree of core chocolate tinged with rich caramelization... Coconut Oil Man goes a whole other step forward. The coconut aromatics appear bold and well toasted above the chocolate foundation, taking the standard Oil Man to a deeper dessert territory. This conjures a chocolate coconut macaroon, balancing the potent coconut oil smoothness alongside more prickly aspects of dark specialty malts. It’s incredibly rich, layered, and the aroma feels both silky smooth and certainly deep enough to get lost in.
The zesty, fine-bubbled carbonation underpinning this stout gives it a vibrancy despite how much is going on. That precise execution when it comes to mouthfeel is one of the aspects we enjoy most about these Elevation special releases: well-layered beers that are structured to actually be enjoyable and explorable. There are savory roasted malts, dark chocolate, and a wealth of licorice and warming alcohol at the first sip, with the hop additions providing the same welcome edges seen in Oil Man. The coconut’s toasted, rich, oily, and never in the way. We’ve had a number of top-heavy coconut beers over the years, but this firm imperial stout serving as the main Oil Man profile here is the perfect base for a memorable coconut beer.
Relative to the core Oil Man release this should have similar cellaring potential, though the coconut impact might drop off quicker than other elements. For maximum coconut—now’s the time. With the rich coconut notes combined with dense chocolate, this seems primed for tropical grilled pork loin, hawaiian barbecue beef, and vanilla- or chocolate-focused desserts.
