can to glass. pour is a relatively dark brown with a large light khaki colored head. nose is light chocolate with some vanilla. Taste is mostly vanilla but is still pleasant. base porter seems a bit thin, could use some more body. otherwise, pretty good. not really seeing any of the coconut come through.

Pounder that’s been in my fridge since February. Has that cold pressed coffee look, minus the khaki head. Aroma is toasted coconut, vanilla bean, dark roasted malt. Soft serve ice cream. This is a pretty light bodied and balanced porter with roasty deliciousness accentuated by the coconut that adds an interesting twist. Enjoyable.
