Draft: Poured a dark oily brown with a tan color head. Aroma is strong chocolate, light vanilla and coconut. Taste was rich chocolate and malt, hints of coconut that were lively and not overbearing to the beer. So good I had a second pint!

This also goes by chocolate coconut porter. Growler pour. Opaque bittersweet brown, skiff of chocolate milk foam that dissapears. Aroma Chocolate cherries yeast and yes, faint coconut. Flavor is chocolate drip coffee, and yeah, a faint roasty nuttiness. Mouthfeel is average for a porter. Overall this is good for a chocolate beer, mildly sweet, faintly bitter, slightly acid, and quite drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft @ King St. Dark brown, near black with a foamy tan head. Aroma is lots of chocolate with hints of coconut/nuts, caramel and coffee. Flavor of rich chocolate malt, nutty, sweet malt and lightly fruity. Medium to full body with a smooth, creamy mouth feel. Good rich porter, the coconut comes out as it warms, a bit on the sweet side.
