3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

The coconut smell alone is so enticing. Hangs on the palate just enough, but not too long.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Definitely has coconut in it, but more like coconut sauce from a tube. The chocolate helps with the balance of flavor.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
