COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is brewed as a traditional English Style Porter. We use the best malts and hops to create a distinctive American interpretation of this classic beer style. Our Porter stands on its own as a great beer, then we add one more ingredient to make it truly unique. Coconut is added during the boil to give this beer a nutty flavor that blends perfectly with the style.
ABV: 5.6%

Can, pours dark with a lot of tan head. Not much aroma, but some roasted notes there with some coconut. Smooth taste; coconut is present but not overwhelming. Overall pleasant, but flavor and aroma could use more punch.

Aroma of chocolate. Taste is chocolate with a little touch of coconut. Not much, but enough to throw off the chocolate. Worth a try.

Can: Nearly black...rubied...with a chunky. light tan head. Roast chocolate and coconut husk aroma. Taste is creamy, dark chocolate malt...coconut milk. Really enjoyed the light vs. dark feel and taste in this one... Wonderful.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can from stfun. Pours black with a thick tan head. Aroma is slight coconut with roasted malts. Flavor is a nice porter with coconut leaking through.

queenholly (2827) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Can. Strong and odd roasty metallic aroma as well as a bit of chocolate. Black with a large, quickly dissipating tan head. There’s that odd metallic flavor, just as in the nose. Also some roasty chocolate. I didn’t really taste or smell anything like coconut. Medium body, light carbonation.

garrison (757) - Cin. city, Ohio, USA - DEC 7, 2012
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.
