3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black appearance with a minimal beige head. The aroma contains some strong coffee and faint coconut. The flavor is rather sweet with a big ol smack o coconut and some dark chocolate. This beer is boring to look at and smell but the taste is all that. The finish is full of some tropical goodness. Overall a good drank.

Can. Gift from a friend. Pours black with minimal khaki head. Aroma of cocoa, caramel and malts. Taste of cocoa, caramel and a hint of coconut. Medium body, low carbonation. Weird metallic aftertaste.

Can from Brusin Ales? - pours pitch with a tan head, some lacing on the glass. Some coconut in the aroma, but I’m getting a weird aftertaste. Meh.

Can from Bruisn Ales. Pours black with a thin khaki head. Leaves a lot of lacing. Lots of roasted malt on the and the tongue. I can’t say I’m getting much if any coconut.

12 oz bottle. Pours black with a minimal khaki head that leaves very little lacing. Aroma is cocoa, caramel and malts. Taste is cocoa up front with caramel and a hint of coconut. Nice cocoa finish. Medium body, creamy texture, low to average carbonation. Had coconut not been in the title I never would have known it was in there. Still it’s very, very tasty!

A delicious porter from a local brewery and is extremely tasty! Highly recommended for any one who loves porters.

On tap at the brewery. Half pour- just enough. Decent porter- nothing outstanding. Pours black with a disappointing, dissipating tan head. Coconut and dark roasty flavors on the nose. Good mouthfeel for a porter- not too heavy. The usual dark malt flavors- coffee, vanilla, toast with an appropriate amount of coconut. Not overpowering, but still there enough that a lei would not be inappropriate. Nothing mind blowing, but totally drinkable. Runs a little bit on the sweet side with the coconut.

Draft at Barley’s. Pours a cola brown color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malts, dark chocolate, mild coconut notes. A bit thin and average with the addition of the coconut making it just interesting enough.

Nice use of coconut, as it melds well with the toasty malt. Not much coconut in the noes, which is somewhat underpowered. Slightly thin bodied, but flavorful. Looks fantastic pouring nearly black with a creamy tan head
