COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Coconut Porter is a classic robust porter spiced with all natural toasted coconut. It is black in color and crowned with a creamy, dark tan head. It begins with a malty-toasted-coconut aroma followed by a rich, silky mouthfeel with tastes of dark malt, chocolate, and hints of coffee. It then finishes with flavors of toasted coconut and hoppy spice to balance the finish.

Roasty and sweet like a good porter but I’m not finding any coconut flavor. Creamy mouth. Feel.

PacNWDad (88) - Washington, USA - OCT 7, 2014
On tap at Chuck’s 85 St. Dark colored, not much head and somewhat cloudy. A little lace lingers with each sip. Aroma of coffee and espresso with a bit of smoky coconut. Sweet tasting, with bread and a tad bit of sourness. Very light for a porter. Not much carbonation and a fairly short finish.

Pour is a black with a rather large tan head for a porter. Aroma is a decent roasty malt with some cocoa power. Flavor is a thick heavy mouth feel with some silky chocolate and chewy roasted malt. A bit of coconut comes after the swallow along with a nice sweet oily malt. This is a great porter just kinda disappointed that there was not much coconut to this.

Kauge (174) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 21, 2014
355 ml can from Stockmann in Tallinn (€ 6,79), Sept 2014. It pours a beautiful deep dark brown and a dark tan head that drops fast and leaves minimal lacing. Nose is... jesusfcknchrist... a beautiful and rich melange of sweet chocolate, well-roasted coffee and oven-cooked coconut chips, also a certain raisiny, dark plum and boozy spiciness. Splendid! Taste begins with a dark roastiness accompanied by the thin carbonation, then follows a very sweet chocolate and dry coconut, whereas the finish brings in a nice hoppy bitterness. Body is medium, carbonation stays thin yet crisp until the very end, palate is malty dryness. A beautiful, well-balanced joyride of a beer. I personally would’ve loved it to be a tad bit more boozy and with somewhat less fizz.

adster (424) - HUNGARY - SEP 20, 2014
Gesztenyabarna, szivacsos habszerkezetű főzet, melynek illata a jól ismert scotch ale-szerű kakaóporos, étcsokoládés krémesség aromája, az elvárt kókuszos vonulat pedig kúkuszdió-héjas formában érkezik. Ízre a legremekebb porterek egyike, letisztult, gazdag és izgalmas ízjegyektől hangos, a kókusz árnyalta kép meglehetősen összetett, benne a fekete csokoládés, kakaóbabos karaktert tejszínes hangulat lágyítja, mely által a kortyok simává és bársonyossá válnak, mintegy csemegeként hatnak. A porter jelleget ugyanakkor egy robusztus pörköltség erősíti, teltsége pedig tartalommal tölti meg. Élvezetes, éppen annyira izgalmas, amennyire egy még jólesően iható főzetnek lennie kell, örömteli dolog ilyesfajta söröket kóstolni.
