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 to Dansting for this one. 12oz. can served in a shaker pint glass. Poured a deep brown/black with about a finger of fine bubbled tan head. Very interesting aroma toasted coconut. Chocolate comes out also as it warms. Lots of roasted malt flavor and some chocolate sweetness. Coconut comes out in th finish. There is also some hop bitterness in the middle. A unique flavor combination that really works.

A- Pours a deep mahogany with a fluffy, tan, 2 finger head. S- Smell is a bit laid back, hints of coffee that pretty much cover up other scents. T- Taste is wonderful, coffee is dominate, cream, I don’t get too much coconut from this one though. I seem to get a mettalic taste from this brew and i’m not sure if it’s from the can or not but without it I would give this much higher marks. I definitely want to try this on tap to see if the canning is the issue. M- Fairly viscous with a good amount of carbonation. D- This one is very drinkable. I could sip on these all day. I really want to try this one on tap though because the mettalic tinge is bugging me.

Brown color with an off-white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma of smoke, coconut, chocolate, and maple syrup. Taste has coconut, chocolate, coffee, and maybe some molasses. Higher than medium carbonation with light body. An interesting beer to try, but I’d like a little more body perhaps. Thanks to marchcow for the sample.

robinvboyer (3107) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 5, 2008
Great coconut aroma, even a burnt coconut aroma that goes very well with the smokey malt, and a touch of hops. Wicked flavour, more browned coconut, and smoke, with a touch of mollases, just a bloody delicious beer!

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUN 5, 2008
Sweet lactic malt aroma. Medium bodied pour, dark garnet in color with huge off-white that is gone in a hurry. Roasted barley flavor, dark chocolate and coffee, is mingled with a moderate amount of coconut flavor - actually just right. Fairly creamy and tingly. An interesting brew, and unique at that. Thanks Torry.

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.

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - JUN 4, 2008
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
