UPDATED: JUL 10, 2016 Pours dark brown with modest beige head. Smells of molasses, chocolate, and just the faintest hint of coconut. Taste is chocolate, coffee, and a subtle taste of coconut. Mouthfeel is very creamy without a lot of noticeable carbonation. Easily drinkable but there isn?t a lot of depth.

A really nice porter. Coconut in the aroma and accentuates the lingering sweetness. Tried in Seattle in 2016.

Bomber. Pours brown with no head. Aroma of nuts and coconut. Very nutty flavor, more of a brown ale than a porter but the milky coconut plays well with the base beer.

Dark caramel, not roasty, a bit sweet, with some chocolate, bready. Pleasant.

Panzuriel (1823) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - APR 9, 2016
Location: 22oz bottle obtained through Tavour Appearance: Darker brown with black hints. Half an inch head of tan foam. Nose: Deeply roasted malt with notes of chocolate. Mild coffee bitterness. Very faint coconut on the nose. Taste: Mostly medium bittersweet cocoa with hints of coffee. Coconut noticeably absent. Decent enough porter. Body: Medium to thicker. Creamy. Thick for a porter. Parting thoughts: The advertised coconut is conspicuously absent. Also a bit odd for a porter. Other than that, a very enjoyable beer.

For porter lovers, this beer miserably fails. Coconut too subtle. Not full-bodied. Not a bang for the buck

Good, but I was expecting more/better. Way too much carbonation for a porter. And the coconut is too laid back.
