Winter Storm. This beer is good. Pours black with a small offwhite head, specks of lace. Smells sweet and roasty and chocolatey with some earth. Tastes of coffee and roasted malty sweetness. Sweetness lingers. Very nice. Full body, good carbonation.

Bottle. Abbey de rocs sediment, awesome pour... Super dark brown. Plums, vinegar, raisen, some roasty porter characteristics beneath. Not your typical porter.

Pour super deep brown almost black with a cream finger and a half thick tan head. Aroma wow coconut macaroons, coffee, chocolate, espresso and a slight nuttiness.Taste again of macaroons mmmm, coconut, coffee, milk chocolate, cream, nuttiness, and espresso. MF was thick creamy velvet in my mouth. This is a exceptionally well balanced beer with a ton of flavor. Truly remarkable.

Pours almost black from a 12oz bottle at a bottle share with KEN SCHMIDT...the MAN HIMSELF. Aroma is big on coffee and coconut. Tastes the same...chocolate, coconut and coffee. This was a great beer, but pales in comparison to Ken’s homebrew version of this called Aloha Plenty...way more coconut, coffee and macadamia flavor.

Bottle. [thanks after4ever]
Pours deep brown, bordering on black. Lovely, staying, creamy, beige head. Aroma has lots of dry coffee, some astringency, light chocolate, some nuttiness. Only mild sweetness. Medium carbonation, very fat and creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is elegant, lots of dry coffee, blackberries, mild astringency, some sweetness, perhaps from the coconut. It is very good, but very dominated by the coffee. Neither Macadamia nor coconut gets a serious way in...

Black, with a little white head. Strong coffee scent. A nice sequence of flavors: coffee, the coconut.

Thanks to bmanning for bringing a bottle of this to a recent tasting.
Poured near black with a nice tan head a good lacing. The initial scent is definitely strong coffee, followed by some nice chocolate. The coconut comes through afterward, and really makes this one fantastic. The taste is quite similar, with everything blending together really, really well. The coffee and coconut make an excellent combination. Moderate to fairly heavy body, and dangerously drinkable. This one definitely did not disappoint.
