Can pour opaque black. Nose roast, and chocolate. Taste roast, bitter chocolate, char, and malt. Roasty finish with just a hint of coconut in the aftertaste.

I think the base beer isn't very good, the coconut didn't help. Reminds me of crappy home brew.

Can. Strong and odd roasty metallic aroma as well as a bit of chocolate. Black with a large, quickly dissipating tan head. Thereís that odd metallic flavor, just as in the nose. Also some roasty chocolate. I didnít really taste or smell anything like coconut. Medium body, light carbonation.

Had as part of the "flight" sampler at the Brewriver GastroPub, and this one was immediately grabbed by my girlfriend after and my initial tase... this is a wonderful, malty and hoppy beer, dark and rich.

Draft. Black, brown head, solid curtain of lacing. Aroma is big and roasty. Nice creamy mouthfeel, tons of coffee grounds and bitter cocoa.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can from Party Town. Pretty decent coconut porter. Its flaws are not from the use coconut. Itís actually tasteful and not overly sweet. The coconut is natural and suppliments the porter flavors rather than overtaking the beer. However, there are notable metallic qualities that make this a little less smooth than it should be. The malts are decently roasty, but are more like soy sauce and instant coffee. All in all, not too bad though.

Fairly typical porter aroma, without much distinguishing character. Oily body but a smooth drink. Flavor is in line with the aroma: balanced without much roast or sweetness standing out. The coconut is done extremely well. Not over the top but adds a nice nuttiness on the finish.

tap at Brewhaven festival - Pours dark brown and has a very mild chocolate malt aroma. The flavor is sweet with a bit of chocolate. Itís thin bodied. Iím wondering where the coconut is and why thereís some band aid character present. Not very good.
