Homebrewer Brian Hoesing won our August Beer Quest with this recipe. Inspired by his favorite Hawaiian brew, who chose to flavor this robust porter with toasted coconut, kona coffee, and cacao nibs. It’s a real flavor explosion to match our tasty chocolate desserts.

On tap at the West O Lazlo’s. Pours a good black color with a thin dark beige head. Has a big roasted coffee aroma. The coffee taste is so big it also tastes a bit like cigarette ashes. The coconut emerges after the initial burst of roastedness. It has a milky mild tartness. This beer is quite good. The coconut is fairly muted by the heavy use of coffee.

FYBIFW (1) - Alabama, USA - NOV 4, 2009 does not count
On tap at Qwest Center Omaha, put down 2, then went to Lazlo’s for 3 more because it was so damn good. Beer pours a nice dark chocolate color, Thin head, but still a very nice mouthfeel. The memorable part of this beer is the definite coffee undertones, makes you crave it like starbucks. supposedly coconut was also used, but I couldn’t really pick any out. An exceptional beer, NEEDS TO BE A YEAR ROUND OFFERING!
