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.

Thanks kiefdog for the share. Pours dark brown with off-white head. Nose is a ton of coconut with whiskey, vanilla, oak, roasted malt, and some earth. Flavor is roasted malt, whiskey, lots of coconut, and some barely-there hops. Light to medium bodied and delicious.

12oz can courtesy of gibby. Pours a dark chocolate brown to cola color with a thin tannish-white head. Aroma is sweet and malty with notes of chocolate, coconut, ripe fruit, banana, and some hints of boozy brandy. Flavor is sweet and malty as well with notes of sweet coconut (and a lot of it), vanilla, toffee, some ripe fruit, hints of caramel. Generally medium body with a pleasing malty coconut finish.

Can. Pours dark brown with a fading bubbly tan head. Nose is mostly coconut and dark chocolate, with a little bit of banana bread. Very nice, but could stand to be a little stronger. Taste adds a little coffee and roasted malt, but itís essentially like drinking an Almond Joy. Mouthfeel is a little watery. Decent finish of bitter coconut, slightly astringent.

Good porter. Dark brown pour with light tan head. Lots of chocolate in this one, with hints of coconut, iced coffee, and nuts. Nice flavor, very creamy, like milk chocolate. Tasty and easy to drink, not very heavy.

Thanks to Sparky for getting this beer for me. I have been trying to get a hold of this for a while. Smells of coconut and coffee. Taste was extremely smooth and silky with lots of dark chocolate and coconut. Taste was almsot like a milk shake, it wasnít too heavu either, it was just right

Again, another brew Iíve been wanting to try for a while. Poured a pitch black with a creamy tan head. Coffee, faint coconut notes on the nose and maybe a little chocolate too. Taste is rich, not overdoing it with subtle coconut and almond on the palate. A mighty fine beer I wish i could get a hold of for camping. Thanks shawn :)"

Pours dark brown with a thin tan head. Smells roasty with lots of cocoa, some coconut hints, spicy. Tastes roasty with a nice chocolatey undertone and some fruity hints on the finish.

12oz can courtesy of BrewerB, thanks man. Dark black, not much head. It smells roasty, and good, hints of coconut. The flavor is a robust porter, roasty with only the slightest hint of coconut, maybe its the power of suggestion? Mouthfeel is smooth but a little thin and this is easy to drink but I donít think Iíd want more than one at a time. Serving type: can Reviewed on: 07-30-2008 02:57:49

Enjoyed from a four pack of cans. Pours jet black with voluminous chestnut-colored head that dissipates to a puny single-centimeter (but sustained) head. Aroma is rather muted and disappointing, especially when it is colder. As it warms up, some light roast is apparent, as well as hints of that coconut, some other nutty smells, and even vanilla. Taste is stupendous. This beer is quite the palate cleanser, which is surprising for such a dark offering. Quenches your thirst surprisingly well. Lots of toasty coconut, vanilla, and some hints of coffee in the taste. Absolutely stupendous. If not for the aroma, this would be a near perfect offering. I really wish they sold this in AZ.

Can: Poured a pitch-black color porter with a rather large medium brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of roasted coconut is clearly noticeable with some roasted malt notes. Taste is a nice mix between some fresh roasted coconut and some dry roasted malt. Bitterness is well controlled and coconut is well balance and more then a novelty. Body is a bit thin for the style but carbonation is pretty good. I could see this going well with some coconut chocolate cake.
