Sampled on Maui. Needless to say this is one that needs to canned or shipped in kegs to the west coast. The batch I tried was rum aged CoCo with cherries and vanilla. Nice marriage. The rum was prominent throughout with the fruit and vanilla playing a complimentary role. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel, and a roasty, sweet finish. Huge flavor. Great name.

Vikingbrew (193) - Colorado, USA - OCT 6, 2010
Poured by the brewer. Dark brown/black color with a low off white head. Rich chocolate, rum, coconut, vanilla aroma. Equally intense flavor. Moderate alcohol warmth. Very delicious! A great treat!

manuchampions (1236) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 21, 2010
Sample at Maui Brewing in Lahaina. Pours a deep brown, almost black with thin tan head. Aroma is similar to the coconut porter but a tad more boozy (rum?). Taste has all the attributes of the standard porter but amped up by the rum ageing, It’s a decent end result but somehow detracts from the glory that is the standard coconut porter. Okay.

DubC5000 (304) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 18, 2010
The Maui Coconut Porter is one of my favorite porters, so I had to try this ale. Aroma was toasty and woody, with a hint of coffee. The toasted coconut flavors were prominent, along with a mild sweetness that was pleasant and not sickening. It was a bit slimy going down rather than creamy, but I’ll let that slide. Lovely brown-black in hue.

bb (6784) - Alamo, California, USA - APR 15, 2010
Draft. Dark mahogony beer with a tan head. Bourbon and light chocolate aroma. Light chocolate and malt flavor with light bourbon. Medium bodied. Light chooclate, light malt, and light coconut lingers.

Cornfield (5452) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - NOV 18, 2009
FoBAB 2009. This looked black in the glass and was capped by a slender tan head. The aroma had molasses, burnt coconut, sawdust, a hint of chocolate, and charred wood. The flavor was much the same, but the dark malt sweetness seemed a bit off, a bit tired. Okay.
