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

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at OBF. My dad’s second favorite of the day.
A: Pitch black with a creme colored head. Good legs..
N: Coconut, vanilla, cocoa, coffee, black pepper and black licorice, dark fruits.
T: Moderately sweet and bitter, in harmonious interwinization. (Shut up.)
M: Creamy, medium body. No alcohol burn.
O: An interesting combination that is tasty, but pales in comparison to Funky Buddha’s Last Snow.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at the 2014 OBF as Caldera Toasted Coconut Porter at 6.2%. Pours very dark brown with a tan head. Aroma has lots of chocolate and clearly coconut. Med+ body. Flavor is chocolate and arguably coconut. Dark malt. Finishes a bit sweet, but all the chocolate helps with that.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deep dark brown with tan creamy head. Great smells of cold chocolate and light coconut. Nice rich the bitter is mellowed by the coconut with out getting too sweet. Leaves a lasting coconut flavor behind.

Frig did I ever like this. I love porters, chocolate, coconut and getting twisted so...duh. It smells like toasted coconut, dark chocolate and roasty malts. Just enough mild hopping to keep the sweetness in check because she is fucking sweet. Pretty desserty, so not an everyday slug. Texture is thinner chocolate milk mixed with a typical pale ale. Really sits on the tongue and lets you enjoy the coco-loco-ness of it all. A creamy, medium-full body just waiting for dessert or perhaps a weekend breakfast.
