3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This porter pours a deep black color from a 12oz can. Small to medium sized, quickly diminishing beige foamy head with nice lacing. The aroma is chocolate and coffee with some coconut. A medium bodied porter. The malts are chocolate and coffee. Touch of burnt/roasted malts. The hops are earthy. The coconut shows up at the finish I guess, it is there but not very prominent.
Nice balance porter. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. can courtesy of DYCSoccer17. Medium brown color, average head formation/retention. Coffee aroma, light hints of coconut, malted milk. Round, roasty malts with very light acidity, slightly more coconut and plenty of chocolate. Very creamy mouthfeel, subdued carbonation. Tends to be very pleasing early in the sip and then develop a rather raw harshness after swallowing. Could be the coconut, I suppose. Overall, nicely done.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted from a can. Has a great toasted coconut aroma. Flavor is lighter in coconut but nice light roasted malts predominate. Could be a little more intense in flavor and more viscous, but, as is, it’s quite drinkable.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Beautiful toasted coconut/vanilla nose.
Dark brown/black body with a 1/2 finger head that mostly dies but leaves a touch of lacing.
Lightly roasted malts in the flavor with a great toasted sweetness. Vanilla. Touches of dark fruits. Mostly though, that great vanilla/coconut/toast plays on the tongue in a grand way. Wonderful.
Mouthfeel is decadent given the low ABV with an amazing drinkability.
Highly recommended. Great, well integrated flavors in one easy to drink, low ABV porter. Thumbs up.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Can, pours dark brown with a small head. Aroma is a smooth toasted coconut, but not too much. Flavor is similar, like a liquid mounds bar, but not too sweet. Just right. I thought this was a fantastic porter. Nice job!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Courtesy SoLan. Dark brown pour, thin even layer of head. Nice slightly sweet roasty aroma, vague coconut notes. More coconut in the taste - just a background taste - but it gives a suggestion of chocolate-covered coconut candy. decent smooth character overall.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is the first beer I’ve had out of a can in probably over 20 years. It is also probably the best beer I’ve ever had out of a can. Nice porter, smooth creamy taste that finshes with coconut and vanilla. A little thin mouthfeel, but really nice overall.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
I had to search long and hard to find this while on Maui (the brewery was closed), but it was well worth the effort.
Poured dark brown with small head. Aroma is much like a mounds candy bar with chocolate and roasted coconut. Mouth feel is thik and full, but not sticky. Flavor is delicous with just enough coconut coming through.
