12 oz’er from a trade with my buddy Rybeast on the Left Coast. Very, very excited about this. Lovely pour, ample light-brown head. Aroma is heavy roast, fresh, dark coffee... so strong, hits you when you’ well before you reach the glass. One word -- SILK. Holy shit, this is smooth. Coffee flavor dominates, bursts when held in the mouth.Touches of roasted coconut. My lord this is delicious. Extremely impressed with the mouthfeel, so smooth. Just enough bitterness to . Sweet, with just enough bitterness to balance it out. Thanks so much Ryan. Thrilled to try this.

Chinchill 12 oz bottle to Iowa City rewfest Teku, courtesy of brosail. Thanks! Pours a dark brown appearance with a brown head. Fairly smoky, coconut, dark cocoa powder, a bit roasty, a bit hot aroma. Carbonation is a bit low. Roasty, a bit burnt malty, lightly nutty, vanilla, chocolate, anise flavor with some roast and light smoke on the finish. Faint metallic note. Glad to finally have tried this one. Thanks sailor!

Bottle to snifter (shared by dudeabide). Looks good; a murky dark cola with thin beige lacing. Smells and tastes solid; Dark malt, coffee, roast, and light coconut and chocolate. Nice on the palate. Good beer.

Much more subtle than I was expecting from something with coffee, macadamia and coconut in the name. All of those are present but none overwhelm the chocolate and toasted malt of the porter.

Opaque black beer, light brown head. Sourish - almost lambic nose with a hint of coca cola! Light softish palate. Rich complex beer. Coffee - soft with a rich Porter like tang is the first thing that hit’s you. The mid brings nuttyness. Coconut sublte in the background. Despite all the extra ingredients this is still clearly a porter and a fine tasting one.

Poured black with a thin tan head. Aroma has a good amount of coconut with burnt nuts and chocolate. Some caramel as well. Taste is very good, just the right amount of coconuts. Some bitter burnt flavors with some dry chocolate. Finish is well balanced with some hops. Overall very nice.

Am I in Hawaii? Are we luauing? Where is the Ham on a spit with an apple? Are these comments racist? I hope not, I don’t think it would be. Them people make a mean beer.

Noix de coco en puissance sur fond caramel et mélasse. Les noix de macadam et le café sont en arrière-plan. Le corps est plein, saturé de sucres.

12 oz bottle received as an epic extra from mashmaster. Pours dark brown with a small brown head, small retention. Full coconut immediately as you stick the nose in the glass, thick and chewy buttery caramel, salty macadamia nuttiness. Chocolate, vanilla, a bit of earthy and mineral coffee. Very complex. I love the coconut in this one. The taste follows the lines of the aroma with the coconut, more coffe than in the aroma. More bitter and harsh, not the same mellowness as the aroma. Chocolate, roasted malts, bitterness and a bit of astringent nuttiness. A roasty tartness too, which blurs impressions quite a bit. This bottle definitely is not infected like other recent recent reviews. Lots if hoppy and earthy bitteress in the finish and after taste along with a lingering oxidized note. The highlight of this beer is definitely the aroma.
