3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice roasted nutty nose, underlying chocolate notes, a little earthy hop notes as well as light fresh coconut notes. Pours dark brown, more or less black, thin head, not much staying power. The flavor is nice and lightly roasty up front with some chocolate notes, fresh fruity coconut throughout until a moderately earthy dry bitter finish. Very drinkable, solid coconut porter.

Shared bomber poured to snifters showing a black/brown hue, with a modest layer of tan head foam, and light spots of lacing. The nose was lightly roasted, earthy, & nutty, with cocoa, subtle coffee, and a hint of toasted coconut that nearly escaped detection behind the other notes, Less than medium bodied, with average carbonation, the taste followed similarly with diminished expression, and texture that was rather thin.

Bottle from PCC in Columbia City (Seattle), WA. Aroma is roasted malts, some chocolate. Taste is the same...not getting much coconut at all and not much depth here. Disappointing.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
A really nice porter. Coconut in the aroma and accentuates the lingering sweetness. Tried in Seattle in 2016.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

1.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
For porter lovers, this beer miserably fails. Coconut too subtle. Not full-bodied. Not a bang for the buck
