Pour out of 22 oz bottle, thanks Brian! Brownish black pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of big coconut, mounds bar, chocolate, lots of coffee, dark fruit, vanilla. Taste was a mix of dark chocolate, coconut, toast, vanilla, hints of oak, slight dark fruit, finishing slightly dry, slightly sweet a bit thin.

UPDATED: MAY 31, 2015 Bomber thanks to a trade with Eric - thanks! Dark brown pour with a rocky white head. Huge blast of coconut and chocolate aroma. Very easy drinking - tasty but not too sweet. Great beer.

Shared bomber to snifters. Coconut overload. In most coconut beers I have trouble isolating the flavor. Not this one. Really nice coffee and sweetness mingle with the extreme coconut as it warms.

Bottle shared. Pours very dark brown with a thick tan head. Aroma is massive Bounty bar upfront, huge coconut, dark chocolate, marzipan, coffee and toffee. Flavour is over moderate sweet and bitter with loads of coffee coming out in the palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Lovely and packed full of flavour for the ABV.

Bottle to glass. Thanks BJ! Pours a medium to deep brown color with a light tan head. Aroma is huge! Lots of coconut, maple syrup, cinnamon, touch of coffee. Reminds me of some breakfast cereal, but can’t place it. Flavor is a bit thinner, but still sweet, syrup. Wonderful.

Bottle. The pour is dark. The aroma is nice, lots of coconut and coffee. The taste is very good. Get a bit of subtle smokiness to it along with the coffee and coconut.

Pours a black color, with ember red edges and a decent, soon vanishing head.
Smells of ground coffee, coconut and mousse au chocolate big times. The coffee is especially well pronounced, while standing against the sweeter aromas of the beer, it reveals earth, toffee and hazelnuts. The nose offers a unique blend, which turns out to be less sweet than expected, with a well balanced infusion of bitter coffee, accentuated by roasted coconuts.
Has a smooth, slightly creamy mouthfeel, medium bodied beer.
Tastes of bitter coffee beans, accompanied by a metallic carbonation, increasing the tastes bitterness, while providing a vivid creaminess. Coconut and Nutella add a lot of character to the beer, which doesn’t turn dessert-like at any point, due to the distinct coffee presence. It implements an earthy toffee flavor very effective though, which turns a tad metallic during the finish, reminding me of cold coffee.
Easy drinking beer, which got a decent complexity to it, turning out a bit too thin and metallic during the finish. Also the bitterness is a bit too harsh, compared to the weaker implemented sweeter flavors of the beer, initially promising a decent balance. The beers interaction between coffee, bitter chocolate and slightly wooden coconuts is very enjoyable though, while the brew remains recognizable as a Porter.
