Westkyoto77 (441) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 5, 2014
Can to glass at Wachi. Jet black, thin tan head. Chocolate is much more prominent in the nose than coconut, along with espresso. Velvety mouthfeel. Coffee, dark chocolate, and the slightest hint of coconut. Not what was advertised, but still quite nice.

Toasty malt aromas. Jet black colour with poor head. Nice coffee malt flavours, roasted malts also a feature. Med to heavy body with med carbonation ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Qual’è uno dei migliori sapori da associare a quello di una porter? Il cocco. L’ho scoperto dopo questa birra incredibile che convince molto più di tante sue sorelle europee. Dalle hawaii con furure: la coconut porter è unesperienza internazionale a lungo raggio che ripaga una scelta coraggiosa. Se la vedete, non lasciatevela scappare.

KJB27 (13) - Lille, FRANCE - DEC 1, 2013
Can at North Bar Leeds; black brown with a thin beige head. Big blend of chocolate, vanilla, subtle and amazing coconut flavour. A bit aniseed on the end. Don’t taste like a porter, more likely to be somehow dark IPA or light stout. Easy to drink, very tasty.

jonnyguns (800) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 22, 2013
Can from mane liquor. Pours a deep drown with tan head that disappears to bubbles. Nose shows toasted coconut, light chocolate, maybe some vanilla and roasted malts. Taste is typical porter flavours. Chocolate, roasted malts with a coconut tinge to it. Really like this one not heavy coconut but it lingers nicely. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can from Kirkstall Bridge. Sweet malt smell non-descript. Pour black little head. Tastes very milk chocolate not too sweet. Milky but pleasant.

Storm_Warning (72) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2013
Currently drinking whilst typing. Aroma is rich chocolate, toasted malt, well rounded sweetness from the coconut. A nice full creamy head sat on a rich black vessel. Flavour is of rich burnt malts, chocolate, subtle coconut is picked up when the beer has warmed suitably. Sweetness and nutty flavours also from the coconut, long cocoa finish very gentle bitterness. On the palate the beer is smooth and creamy, medium bodied and suitably carbonated. Overall this beer is truly lovely, not huge amounts of coconut initially but it is there! And for me that is a good thing. It could well be over powering but less is more in this case! Great beer, go get some! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

calm_dreamer (140) - GREECE - SEP 4, 2013
Pours black with much bubble-bath foam that goes away after a few minutes. Aroma of toased coconut, coffee and dark chocolate, maybe a note of hops too. The taste is smooth with coconut flavor and full porter power - when it gets warmer the coconut stops being noticeable though. Medium to light body.

Pours dark and robust, malty, coffee flavor. Thick head that disappeared quickly. Good stuff!

cryptobard (281) - DENMARK - SEP 15, 2011
Poured black with a huge beige head that quickly settled. A medium bodied porter with a taste of malt, coconut, and chocolate predominately. Light carbonation to complement its texture. Definitely like the aroma more than the taste on this one.
