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.

Can. Dark brown body, roasty nose, small tan head, sort of looks like a Pepsi with loose carbonation, and, yes, there is coconut. Moderately sweet, chocolate notes, a lot of coconut, thin palate. Interesting.

Can shared by theisti, courtesy of Dansting. Pours a deep, dark brown with a tan head that reduces to a thin skin and laces nicely. On the nose are toasted coconut and milk chocolate up front with coffee sliding in behind. Light to medium bodied and slick (almost flat) with a lightly bitter-roasted finish. The flavor follows the nose, with roasted chocolaty malt, toasted coconut and a bit of a sour note at the finish. A nice variation on the style. I love coconut and chocolate, so it had me at the aroma. Thanks for sharing this with me, Tim.

12 oz. can generously given to me by Dansting. Pour is a deep cola brown with some ruby. Looks like a Black Cherry soda. Nice looking Khaki head. Aroma of toasted coconut primarily, with some roasted Porter underneath. Taste is mostly straight Porter, slight roast, flat coffee, some sweetness. Coconut is muted, and appears mostly in the finish. Once you are past the coconut, there is some lingering sourness. This was well made, the coconut flavor was integrated nicely. However, this really wasn’t totally my thing. Extra point for creativity. Thanks for hauling this one back and sharing Dan!

12 ounce can provided by Tim/Dan. The pour is opaque dark brown with a medium brown head. Toasted coconut is apparent in the beginning, but it faded quickly. There is also some chocolaty notes. The flavor is a bit chocolaty with a bit of coffee as well. There may be a bit of toasted coconut flavor there too, or maybe I just wish there was more. Medium body. Light carbonation. Dry coffee finish. Not nearly as interesting as it sounds.

can thanks to my man, christian...... poured dark brown close to black, fizzy, with a coapy light brown head.... aroma had nuttiness but not of the coconut variety. more or less like an oatmeal stout..... coconut def comes through in the flavor and is pretty nice. more so of that nuttiness along with notes of chocolate, roast . it lacked some body and robustness though overall.

12 oz can from Foodland, Kapa’a, Kauai. Good lord this is good. Super nice looking dark brown/amber color. Smells like coconut, tastes like German Chocolate Cake in a can. This stuff is so damn drinkable and tasty. Excellently crafted - the balance is remarkable - the coconut is not overwhelming and there is a fair amount of hops to keep you from forgetting that this is beer and not cake. The consistency is almost as if it was poured out of a nitro tap. I wouldn’t change a thing about this beer.

rickgordon (3841) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 25, 2008
Canned. Thanks Bolagshataren. Ruby brown colour with poor head. Aroma is mostly from coconut and is very oily. Slippery mouthfeel, with cocoa dominating. Chocolate powder is present towards the bitterness. Good tasty, yet with plenty of cocoa sun oil to it.

Can from Nathan. Very dark pour with ample head of tan fluff. Chocolate abounds in the aroma. Slight alcohol presence as well. Rich and thick of coconut, chocolate, malt, slight hop. Good lacing as the beer disappeared.

slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 4, 2008
Can. Nose is chocolate and coconut, purely. Ruby-brown with a brown head. Really tasty chocolate and coconut flavor. Palate is too thin but the flavor is very nice.
