From a can pours dark brown with a nice tan head. Creamy and nutty that finishes sweet. Tastes like a chocolate soda. Could use more coconut flavor but still tasty.

Big ups to Josh for the can! Crisp and vigorous carbonation to this dark brown pour. Body perhaps slightly on the thin side, but good nutty and toasted malts in the nose, a nice sweet spot for the coconut to inhabit. Solid base beer but Iíd like just a bit more of the coconut, as it seems a bit shy.

20oz imperial pint at the Cock & Bull in Hyde Park. Really dark. Good tan head, little lace. The only other coconut porter Iíve ever had is Konaís -- so compared to that, this is way less coconut than I was expecting. My friends all sipped it, their first impression was "smokey". And it is pretty smokey, strangely. But not bad. Nice toasty nuts. Lighter to medium body. Nice lighter crisp carbonation. Very dry texture. Kind of smokey savory and light sweet taste (bit of bitter). Overall a pretty decent tasty porter.

Nutty aroma. Very dark with a thin head. Taste is a toasty coffee nutty flavor. Iím missing the coconut portion (maybe very light on the end), but it does have a nice mouth feel. Almost a light soy sauch flavor. Easy to drink, robust enjoyable.

on draft at fest of ale...poured dark brown with little brownish head that didnt last long. the aroma of roasted malts and some coffee seemed very nice but wasnt able to detect much else...the flavor was pretty decent but i was missing out on the coconut maybe because of the hoppy beer before this one was still working on my tongue, but the flavors of the dark roasted malt and coffee were actually quite good...going to have to get a can of this and try it seperately..

16 oz. can shared by bsuedekum. Thanks, Blake! The dark gold font on the black sticker on the label makes it hard to read. Pours a dark brown color with a small tan head that settles into a ring. Aroma of toasted and roasted malts, coconut, chocolate, mild coffee, nuts, and a hint of dark fruits. Flavor of roasted malts, toasted coconut, chocolate, coffee, dark fruits, and a metallic note throughout. Medium-bodied, roasty, and metallic, with medium carbonation. Not bad and could be excellent without the metallic note. Is it the can or what?

Can to oversized snifter (thanks Chris). Looks alright; LOTS of head. Smells Decent; you can pick up on the coconut. Tastes decent, but not special with an average mouthfeel. Not bad, but wonít buy again.

16oz can - pours all over my desk and partly on my monitor, my daughterís drawings and the wall - a very lively pour to say the least. I hope the rest of the experience is positive, because my first impression less than appreciative. What did make it into the glass pours an opaque brown with quickly diminishing tan head. Nose is roasty and nutty. Flavor adds little other than a reminder of how much this tastes like the Rivertown Oatmeal Stout (not a compliment) but this is way better. Easy to drink but very plain.

Pours a dark black, with just a hint of brown at the edges. It has a nice tan head that fades down to a small covering fairly quickly. It has a nice roasty aroma that is balanced by an underlying sweetness. This is a great beer. The flavor starts with the sweet coconut, but then plays back and forth from sweet to bitter. Coffee, chocolate, coconut all playing their roles. Awesome stuff!
