Panzuriel (1698) - 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.

CaseCouv (1) - - MAR 12, 2016 does not count
For porter lovers, this beer miserably fails. Coconut too subtle. Not full-bodied. Not a bang for the buck

mikedR (1561) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - MAY 8, 2015
Good, but I was expecting more/better. Way too much carbonation for a porter. And the coconut is too laid back.

mcberko (11981) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 29, 2015
On cask at Washington Brewers Cask Festival, pours a dark reddish brown with a small beige head. Nose brings out toasted malt, earthy nuts, and light coconut. Flavour is not too prominent on the coconut - it’s still a brown ale at its core, with toasted nuts and earthy bready malt. Well-balanced and nice subtle incorporation of the coconut. Nice stuff.

monk191 (1603) - California, USA - MAR 25, 2015
A decent coconut porter. Pours a deep red-brown with a soapy tan head. Smells of coconut and milk chocolate. Taste starts out with coconut and fluffy marshmallow, then brings in the dark malts and cocoa. A bit one note, but tasty. Had in the bottle.

Barreras (1471) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - MAR 15, 2015
Pours a clean brown color that has clarity. Aroma of brown malt with a slight coconut smell. Taste is clean, with a well balanced brown malt, chocolate, coconut flavor. Very easy drinking and the alcohol content is well balanced and hidden. A slight coconut aftertaste, but a wonderful beer.
