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.

DoubleBubble (107) - Mescal Lakes (wherever that is), Arizona, USA - JUN 4, 2008
Pours a deep brown with a 1 1/2" mocha head. Almost no lacing. Aroma of mostly chocolate, roasty malts, coffee, and a very slight lingering coconut hue. Flavor is all chocolate, coffee, and roasted malts. I really can’t detect the coconut in the flavor. Creamy, but a little dry. Over all a decent beer, but would like to taste the coconut.

12 oz. can courtesy of Sparky27 and shared with DoubleBubble - Pours a brown color with a one and a quarter finger thick light tan head. Light lacing. Aroma is light roasted malt with a very slight odd smell to it. Not getting much coconut. Flavor is roasted malt, chocolate, and some light chalkiness. Medium body. I was really looking forward to this one. However, it was kind of a let down. I would have never pegged this beer as a coconut porter in a blind tasting. Thanks Eric.

2008-05-30. Very dark brown - black body with a modest brown head. (3+) Coconut in aroma over dark malt core. (7+) Sweet flavour, dark malt, very mild roast notes. Simple. Not much of the coconut present in the flavour. Smooth average palate. Pretty decent. Can, Mondial, Montreal, 2T

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUN 2, 2008
Sampled at Hellbilly’s Hellraiser II. Thanks Sparky27! A clear dark pour with a smaller tan head. Roasted malt and coffee dominate the aroma, with a bit of chocolate and coconut. Flavor is similar, coconut does not dominate, but is definately present. Overall a good creamy porter. Very nice!

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - JUN 2, 2008
four pack from olibeer22. dark brown mahogany color with a fluffy tan head. smells like chocolate brownies cooking... malt, light sourness (lactic), vanilla and plastic coconut aroma which fades as it warms. big time chocolate flavor is followed by vanilla, roasty grain and it’s dryness, nuts and a touch of sour. tart dry finish with a coconut and coffee-like aftertaste. again, the coconut seems strange and fake/plastic when it is cold. as it warms it develops nuttiness and warmth (although coconuts are still gross). medium body with a prickly acidic mouth feel in the beginning. when it gets near room temperature it becomes so much softer, smoother and warming...

Rogueone (506) - I F&ckin’ hate those guys from, Ohio, USA - JUN 1, 2008
Thanks Adam for this lovely shipment! Can: pours a very dark brown/black with a thick and fluffy dark tan head. Even though the can says "Keep Cold" this beer really pops when it gets a little warmer. When it was cold, I got absolutely NO coconut, however, as it sat around the milky aroma of fresh coconut started to permeate the temperature, almost strongly so. Flavor is mild coffee, light chocolate, bit effervescent, and a hint of coconut milk. Finish is spicy, slightly bitter. If this wasn’t so difficult to procure, I’d buy it all the time.

Bockyhorsey (2610) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUN 1, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2008 Can courtesy of Sparky27, Real good coconut aroma. Chocolate milk colored head and black body. Chocolate and coconut flavors thoughout brew with the noramal sweetness present in porters. Mild aftertaste but a palate pleaser. Thanks Eric.
