Party Trick Stout with Chocolate & Toasted Coconut

Review Date 5/5/2023 By John Staradumsky


Here’s another beer from Westbrook, Maine’s Mast Landing Brewing Company: Party Trick Stout with Chocolate and Toasted Coconut. Mast Landing has a brewery and taproom in Freeport, Maine as well (if you go there, be sure to visit Gritty McDuff’s as well), and a taproom in South Portland. I have seen their beer for sale here in Georgia occasionally, but only occasionally.

As soon as you see the label for Party Trick, you will of course know it is a theme beer, the theme being a Mounds chocolate coconut candy bar. Mast Landing says of this beer on their website:

Party Trick is a blast of a collaboration with our local friends from Banded Brewing. Chocolate and toasted coconut are the features of this stout, and at 6.3% ABV the Party can go on all evening.

Party Trick Stout with Chocolate and Toasted Coconut is a collaboration beer with Banded Brewing Company. Banded opened in Biddeford, Maine in 2013 and now has a location in Portland as well. I have never tried a beer from Banded, but they are now on my radar.

I got my can of Mast Landing Party Trick Stout with Chocolate and Toasted Coconut from Half Time beverage and paid $6.99 for my pint can. The brewery has it listed as $15.19 a 4-pack if you buy direct, though it has a sold out notice currently. My can is stamped BATCH 2 CANNED ON 12/03/22 on the bottom. I drank it on April 28th of 2023.

Mast Landing Party Trick Stout with Chocolate and Toasted Coconut pours to a dark black (but not opaque) color with a thick creamy tan head and a roast chocolate and toasted coconut nose. Taking a sip, the beer is medium in body and immediately quite roasty. Smooth creamy chocolate comes through and the toasted coconut to deliver the Mounds bar theme. Finishes dry roasty with a little more coconut.

A tasty beer if a tad sweet, but the theme is a candy bar, after all.

Glad I tried it?  T

Would I rebuy it??
