Bottle. Thanks Tim. Aroma is roasty, soy sauce, a bit tart. Fruity. Taste is good, chocolatey, roast, only coconut hint, cola, high carb. Interesting.

Bomber from Safeway in Honolulu. Nose is bitter coffee and very light coconut, not nearly as apatizing as the Maui CoCoNut and Waikiki Black Strap Molasses Porter I had yesterday. Very dark brown with a big tan head. Flavor is coffee with some coconut and a hint of chocolate.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thanks to TimE for sharing the bottle at the tasting!
Poured into a taster showing a finger of latte colored foam and coffee brown all around.
The nose shows a lot of light and easy coffee brightened significantly by the coconut. Probably closer to a latte.
The palate is extremely carbonated with hints of coffee, a lot of coffee tartness and a mid palate of coconut shavings. The carbonation is just too overwhelming on this beer to be enjoyed.

Pours nicely dark, bit of foam. Aroma is smoky, leathery, some acidity, not much of it though. Taste is quite spritzy, high carbonation. Some cocoa, chocolate, bit of sourness. Quite highly carbonated, makes it feel very light. Aftertaste pretty short. Easygoing porter, I guess it’s complexity falls prey to high carbonation.

Dakr brown color. Some toasted coconuts with coffee and a bit of roasted malt but not too chocolately. It’s a bit too much carbonation. A bit sweet chocolately finish.

Wonderful chocolate, coffee and coconut aroma and taste. I’d love a bit more coconut but this is so tasty it’s hard to complain.
