UPDATED: JUN 29, 2015 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. 6/28 Can at home. Bit of metallic twang to it from the can. Better on tap. Great weight for a porter. More of a fall/winter beer to me.

12 oz can into a Belgian snifter. A: Dark brown to black with a brown fringe when held to the light. The decent size head quickly reduces to a tiny ring that leaves almost no lacing. Aroma: Coffee, dark chocolate, dark roasted malts but no coconut. Flavor: Dark and black bread, chocolate and faint coffee are soon joined by light coconut. Some sweetness, but mildly bitter overall. M: Medium body with light carbonation. Overall: a fairly good porter with a light, conservative dose of roasted coconut.

Sample at the Biltmore Village taproom. Dark brown color with a medium tan head that recedes quickly to a film. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast malt, chocolate and slight coconut. Light body with flavors of malt, mild coffee and a hint of toasty coconut. The finish is sweet with a malty aftertaste. Decent overall.

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.

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 itís very, very tasty!

Can brought back from NC. Pours black with whiteish head. Aroma is mild coconut and chocolate malt, pretty sweet. Taste is muted chocolate with coconut sweetness in the back end. OK beer.
