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.

Served from the can, very dark, roasty, deep cocoa notes, the coconut is toasted and is not subtle at all. Hops play well in the background hinging with a cocoa bitterness. Creamy feel. Full aroma, nice presentation. This is a shockingly good beer.

Thanks to Kevin for the can! Disclaimer.. I love porter and I greatly dislike coconut. Gushed out of the can a bit, eventually pouring deep brown with a towering, sticky cap of beige head. The aroma was mostly porter.. deeply-roasted bakerís chocolate, coffee, and black patent with toasted coconut and vanilla accents.. the nutty character rose as it warmed, and I was surprised to enjoy that aspect of it. The flavor had a milkier chocolate base with light earthy and coffee bitterness around.. coconut joined on the middle and carried through the finish.. came together very well. Silky-smooth, sweet, and well-balanced on the palate with moderate-to-high carbonation.. dried out on the back-end, leaving toasted nutty notes.. didnít think I would like this so much.

12 oz. can shared, appropriately, at a friendís Aloha Party (big thanks to Donny for sharing this one). Pours dark with virtually no head. Aroma has some coconut present with some coffee and dark chocolate. Rather than the usual roasted malt flavor in a porter it is replaced by sweet coconut; not overpowering but certainly detectable. This is really a wonderful beer.

On tap at the Yard House, Waikiki. Deep, dark brown with a brown head. Coffee and coconut nose, some chocolate. Very tasty - coffee and mild coconut, dark chocolate. The coconut moves toward the fore late. Excellent!

Can from GAManiac. Thanks, Grant! Pours a highly carbonated black, much like a flat Coke. Aroma is dark roasted coffee that soaked in chocolate. Slight touch of dark fruit in there as well. Only a whisper of coconut that, had the label not said it contained coconut, I would be hardpressed to detect. Interesting flavor; heavy chocolate that quickly gives way to a light, creamy coffee with just a touch of coconut. Almost malty in mouthfeel. As it warms, the chocolate becomes more dense but still keeps that quick switch to light coffee. Very enjoyable porter; wish I had more of this!

Can. Thanks to Rciesla for sharing. This porter was a little different than most, the hint of coconut was subtle and a nice change of pace, worth trying if you can get your hands on it.

12oz can. Pours a deep and dark brown, almost black body with a thick, two-finger width, dense and foamy, dark chocolate brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a lot of thick, layered lacing. Very nice looking out of a can. Big and robust aroma with lots of rich, milky dark chocolate and softly roasted coconut. A light astringent citrus and dark fruit, but mainly heavy chocolates and coconuts. Flavor is rich, but not as big as the aroma. Still has lots of chocolate and roasted coconut with a light citrus bitterness in the finish. Lots of lingering chocolate, some tropical fruits, and a touch of roasty coconut. Palate is medium to full bodied, chewy, and very rich with a semi-dry finish. Overall, a really nice porter. The aroma led me to believe it would be slightly more intense, but it ended up being quite sweet with lots of chocolate. Interesting porter that smelled like an Imp Stout with the body and taste of a porter. The coconut does a nice job of accompanying the flavors rather than dominating. Good stuff.
