Holy shit does this beer smell amazing, like some kind of godly coconut cream coffee pie in liquid form waiting to smash down my face. Really just impressive stuff, though the taste suffers a bit from being too samey, not having a lot of unique qualities and being sort of tiresome after the first glass. On draft at Hunahpu day, an excellent selection to represent this fantastic brewer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Served on-tap at the Blue Dog. Reviewed from notes.
A - Pours pitch black with a small half finger tall tan head leaving spotty lace down parts of the glass.
S - Smells of strong coconut, fresh coffee, milk chocolate, vanilla and dark roast. A very intoxicating nose.
T - Starts off with a huge fresh shaved coconut flavor that never really fades away. Hints of chocolate, vanilla, coffee, dark roast and a touch of toffee. Finish is sweet, mostly coconut and chocolate, not lingering on the palate for very long after the finish.
M - Heavy body with moderate carbonation. Smooth feel from start to finish with tons of flavor. Goes a touch thin toward the end of the glass.
O - An excellent porter, spot on for the description. The flavors work extremely well together and make it incredibly easy to drink. Second best Funky Buddha beer I have had, only behind the Maple Bacon.

On tap at Hunahpu day ’13. Think this was my favorite beer of the day. Nice big aroma of chocolate and coffee. Tastes are cocoa, vanilla, coconut (mounds bar vibe). Great texture. Pretty wonderful stuff. We were tempted to fight our way back to the bar for another, but it was nuts at the time. 8.6

Had this at Hunahpu. I was feeling a bit boozed, but I thought this was one of the best I had all day. Lot of coconut smell and taste. A tad sweet (obviously) but one of my favorite belters of the day.

Dark brown, tan head. The nose is big on the coconut, a little bit of chocolate. The chocolate definitely comes through in the taste even though the coconut is still front and center. Fairly thin but it is a porter after all.

A lot of coconut, kind of spicy, good thick body that is not too thick. Very satisfying.

On tap at Funky Buddha. Pours dark brown with tan head. Aromas of vanilla, coconut, coffee, some roast, and light chocolate. Flavors of sweet vanilla, coffee, coconut, some roast and chocolate, with some bitterness in the finish. Body is a tad thin, but this is a coffee beer so that is ok. Nice beer.
