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.

This was a bonus from WeeHeavySD, thanks a bunch Jon! Pretty tasty brew, but not quite what I expected. I didn’t really notice anything to do with coconut in it at all. No aroma, flavor..anything. Then again, it’s not a bad thing because this is an exceptional porter. Great smooth flavor with a very clean palate. Very small amount of bitterness to round it out.

auerbrau (3191) - Ithaca, New York, USA - AUG 2, 2008
Can. Noses in gentle chocolate roast, sweet almonds, and a bit of orange candy. Pours a silky mud brown, with a frothy cream in tan above. Flavor throws a dense macroon, sweet brown sugar, and a bit of caramel. Pretty mild flavor. Nice, but mellow, which is appreciated. Enjoyable. A touch thin and warm, but decent.

12 oz. can - thanks to my sister for dragging this back to the mainland; ah, the long awaited coconut porter; pours dark brown with thin, off-white head; aromas are rich and sweet; mainly roasted coconuts, chocolate; drinks on the sweet side with a fruity, dry finish; roasted malts, chocolate are very muted in the flavors as the sweetness dominates; texture is a little on the thin side; very nice overall, but i find myself missing that porter roastiness a little bit

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2008 Poured dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, subtle coconut. The coconut would be pretty easy to miss in a blind tasting. Taste is similar, with vanilla coming in as well. Finish is lightly bitter and the mouth is creamy. A very nice porter, and a beer I would drink often if it were available.

12oz. can, with thanks to AgentSteve for yet another excellent bonus! Pours dark brown with a nice foamy tan head that lingers, minimal lacing. Aroma is roasty, with some milk chocolate and light coconut. Flavor is more of the same, with the coconut presence coming out a bit more along with the roasted malts and chocolate; silky on the palate. A nice, easy drinking porter, thanks again Steve!

This can easily get bonus points for being available now AND in cans. Just a really tasty beer in every way really. The aroma is chock-full of roasted malts, subtle toasted coconut, and some chocolate sweetness (reminded me in some ways of a Mounds candy bar). The flavor of this beer is full on roasty goodness with enough resigual sweetness left behind to make it a really intruiging beer. Caramel, cocnut, vanilla and chcolate are all found in the beauty. Great beer!!

Bonus can from AgentSteve. pours dark with a large cascading head. aroma is of roasted malt chocolate and a hint of the toasted coconut. mouthful is a little thin and the coconut is a little hard to find in the bitter cocoa and roasted malts.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 23, 2008
Can. Very nice appearance, with a dark brown color and well lasting foam. Nose doesn’t have a lot of character but shows light traces of banana, toasted coconut and dark malts. Flavor shows notes of roast, coconut, cocoa and coffee. Silky mouth feel does impressive. It’s a nice beer with good balance, but I was expecting more vibrant flavors and aromas. Would like to try again, but was expecting this to be a little better.

hopscotch (10214) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 21, 2008
Can… Pours almost black with a small, creamy, beige head. The aroma is an intoxicating swirl of cocoa, coconut and coffee. Full-bodied and chewy with moderate carbonation. Rich, malty-sweet, caramel, coconut and milk chocolate. Herbal (black tea), chocolaty finish.Thanks to rogueone for providing the can!
