Draft pour at Frankies pizza. Pours a dark reddish brown color with a nice nutty, chocolate aroma. Flavor is hints of cocoa, milk chocolate, and nutty malt. Not nearly as much coconut as expected. Overall a nice porter. Very enjoyable.

22. Pours a near-opaque black with a dense and creamy tan head. Lots of light lace. Big chocolatey nose, a little coffee, very sweet and creamy. Not getting a ton of coconut, but that’s alright. Creamy medium body, amazingly burly for the ABV, very soft carb. Sweet dark milk chocolate and some light coffee notes on the mid palate, still not getting a ton of coconut but that might just be me. Long sweet dark milk chocolate finish.

LImited release bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours very dark brown with a foamy beige head. Aroma of chocolate and dark malt. Flavor is something that seems to be coconut with chocolate and dark malt. Making me think of a Mounds bar. Fairly dry. Not very bitter. Decent drink.

Have enjoyed on tap at the brewery & in 22 oz bottles. This pours dark brown with some transparency. A bubbly tan head sits on top. Beautiful coconut aromatics. Rich coconut flavors with some roasted components backing it up. The richness is not supported by the mouthfeel. This is very thin, which partnered with the high carbonation creates an angular character rather than a creamy porter.

Bottle thanks to Prufrockstar. Pours brown with tan head. Nose and taste of toasted coconut, toasted chocolate, cola sweetness, cocoa and light nutty malt. Light bodied porter. Easy drinking.

Bottle - thanks to Greg for picking this up for me. Pours clear light brown with khaki head, good lacing. Aroma: caramel is the first thing I get; along with some bread, a bit of toasted coconut. Taste: moderately sweet, lightly bitter finish. Coconut more in the aftertaste. Light body, a shade on the thin side, creamy texture. A lot of toasted coconut in the finish. Overall: this works alright. The coconut presence is better integrated than most coconut beers I’ve had.

5000 (6299) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Bottle:   Very dark, nearly black, thin to moderate pale sandy head, spotty lacing.   Pale coconut and roasted malts on the nose.   Not as strong in the coconut as I was expecting.   Again, pale coconut and roasty notes on the tongue.   Not a very robust example.   Tiz clean, body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Seems to have a bit more lingering coconut flavor on the exit.   Lingering toasted coconut after the finish.   Simplier and not as hefty as I was hoping.   Decent, but not worth the $9 price tag.
