3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
330 ml bottle @ Beer Hunters. Pours opaque black colour with a small steady beige head. Aroma is rich with roastyness, some blueberries, chocolate and mild coconut. Taste has roasty malt, chocolate and mild coconut as well. Full bodied, medium carbonation and creamy mouthfeel. Roasty coconut finish. A well-balanced coconut porter and the best thing is that the coconut is more a subtle undertone instead of dominating the beer. Nicely complex as well. Really enjoyable.

0.33 l bottle, thanks hanniku! Black color. Sweet with mellow chocolate and perfumed coconut. Sweet with bitter tonic like herbal bitterness, fruity-herbal coconut, woody clove, burnt sugar and bitter chocolate. Complex and exotic, but not overdone. Nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark opaque brown color, small brown head. A bit tart, roasted aroma with dark chocolate, some coconut. Medium-bodied. Chocolate, vanilla, toasted malts, licorice, hints of coconut. Chocolaty, cocoa aftertaste. As a coconut porter, could be a bit sweeter. Very tasty anyway.
