9.5% ABV On tap at beertemple, amsterdam. Body is pitch black, head is big, tan, creamy, mostly lasting, excellent lacing. Nose is chocolate, flavor is chocolate, mild coffee. Light sweet, heavy roasty bitter. Finish is long lasting roasty heavy bitter, alcohol is totally hidden. Full body, sticky texture, soft carbonation. Simple but excellent dessert beer, great chocolate flavor.

bartzluke (322) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 22, 2015
5 oz chilled pour from tap into a cylindrical tasting glass at Growler Guys in Portland, Oregon. Black/dark brown, mostly opaque, moderate off-white head. Nose is toasty malts and oatmeal cookie. Medium body, a little thin. Taste brings together dark chocolate, coconut, and maltiness. I’d like to try this one in a bit bigger quantity.

rolyasm (5) - Utah, USA - MAY 10, 2015 does not count
The coconut smell alone is so enticing. Hangs on the palate just enough, but not too long.

Definitely has coconut in it, but more like coconut sauce from a tube. The chocolate helps with the balance of flavor.

sic1314 (4776) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - APR 15, 2015
I assume this is this beer, listed as 9.5% on tap in Beer Temple, called Coconut Porter. Poured deep dark brown with a frothy beige head. Aroma of milk chocolate, surprisingly coconut, and lightly toasted malt. Medium body, flavour as the aroma, vanilla smooth. Nice.

Arve_Christian (3915) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 12, 2015
On tap at Beer Temple, Amsterdam. Pitch black color, ok foam. Medium/ high aroma intensity; chocolate, malt, coffee and some roasted notes. Medium/ full body & complexity. Some sweetness- balances good. Enjoyable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

maxwelldeux (4164) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - APR 11, 2015
Draught. Pours a near black color with a smallish off white head on there. Nose is chocolaty and roasty, but does not have the coconut I feared. Taste, however, does have more coconut than I like (and I hate coconut). Not my thing.
