Pours with a creamy light-brown head, with excellent lacing. Muddy black body. Aromas of roasted earth and heavy/smoky charcoal. Definite oily texture. Tastes like coffee that’s been filtered through igneous lava rock.

On tap at the brewpub. Just when I thought Maui Brewing’s coconut porter couldn’t be any better... Wow, this is just excellent. Full of fresh coconut flavor and milk chocolate. Thick, creamy body that’s cut thinner with the extra alcohol (which by the way was list at 9 . something % at the brewery). Finishes with more coconut, cocoa and chocolate. An awesome dessert beer, very unique and well done.

Draft pour at the Toronado Seattle opening. Pours super dark with a mega coconut aroma. Similar to the original, but much richer, and more coconut in my opinion. Coffee and coconut sweet finish. Think I like the original one better. Not a quick, easy drinking beer, but good overall.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
From notes, had at obriens for SDBW. Pours thick and black with a big tan head. Nose is of course, CoCoNuT, vanilla, chocolate, cherries, toffee, brown sugar and molasses. Taste is sweet with some good bitterness for such a big beer. Mouthfeel is crisp and clean, finish is long and the body is medium. Thought it would have been heavier, but still great.
