jercraigs (7699) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 25, 2013
2013-08-16. Black body, headless. Aroma is sweet malt, with a light coconut character and light roast. 7+ Flavour is similar, sweet malty core is nicely balanced with a good amount of coconut character. 8+ Smooth average bodied palate, modest carbonation. Nice stuff. Growler At Campground Brewdown.

Sampled this at Campground Brewdown 2. Pours a deep brown to black with a thin to medium sized beige head. Soft cocoa, chocolate, coconut. Medium-bodied, sweet cocoa, chocolate, more coconut. Warm malt, soft milk chocolate into the finish.

Growler at Brewdown. Pours black with tan head. Nose and taste of heavy up front coconut, roast chocolate and touch of vanilla. Medium body.

DocLock (7824) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 12, 2012
Draft at Collegeville. Pours dark brown with off-tan head. Nose is roasty dark malt, coconut, apple, backup hops. Tastes dry portery, with a well integrated coconut flavor, roasty patent malt, and finishing dry resiny hops.

PapaSkeetSkeet (808) - Corvallis, Oregon, USA - FEB 10, 2011
Pours dark brown with cream-colored head. Aroma is of refreshing fruitiness (pear and coconut); it was surprising how much mixed-fruit-juice flavor the coconut clearly contributed to the aroma and to some extent the flavor. Tastes of refreshing fruit and strong coconut, a dry roastiness that is somewhat masked by the coconut, and minimal hops (less than the Pennypacker Porter). Overall, quite unique, but not something I’d look to drink often.

Miver (609) - Silver Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 1, 2009
From growler thanks to KornDogg. Poured very dark brown with a thin tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malts, coconut, chocolate. Taste was of roasted coffee, chocolate, toasted coconut, with a nice body. A pretty nice porter.

3.1
   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
kramer (4892) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 28, 2007
Draft at Camp Hill location. Pours a clear dark brown with a minimal whispy head. Nose is coconut extract smelling with a hint of root beer. Some slight coffee and roast. The coconut flavor has this hard edge to it like it was an alcohol extract maybe. Some chocolate and roast emerges on the finish. Have to say that I agree with mj on this one, tastes just like an Almond Joy all the way. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with fizzy prickly carbonation and a slightly sticky sweet finish. Overall, this really needs to have the coconut toned down and make it more of a suggestion of coconut instead of all coconut.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 18/20
lilannie (384) - Adamstown, Maryland, USA - OCT 28, 2007
Aroma: toasted coconut, melted milk chocolate, little grittiness/earthiness, some cream/milk Appearance: dark brown-->black, tan head, lacing
Flavor: toasted coconut, milk chocolate, cream/milk--like a melted Almond Joy candy bar
Palate: smooth, creamy, toasted coconut/chocolate aftertaste

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 9/20
3fourths (7976) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 28, 2007
Draft at the Harrisburg brewery. Dark brown body with a tan head, patchy but not thick. Soapy coconut nose with some light chocolate and very light bread or toast. Flavor is almost entirely coconut, syrupy and cheap tasting, with very low roast and chocolate. Sweet and candy-like, it tastes and smells like Almond Joy. Thin, banal and plain.

Nejhleader (1228) - Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 23, 2007
this was actually a really nice porter, it surprised me cause i don’t like coconuts, so i thought i wouldn’t like this, but your can barely detect the coconut. It had more of a mocha roast taste to it, with a small touch of coconut towards the end. Good body, good porter.
