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.

Pours dark brown, with a light brown head. Aroma is chocolate, roasted malt, and just a touch of coconut. Flavor is roasted malt, chocolate, and again, just a hint of coconut. Thanks to Foolish_Mortal for this can.

Very gorgeous porter with a beautiful almond colored head. Complex with five different malts. I tasted coffee, chocolate, dark fruit, and roasted coconut... Perfect for summertime.

12oz can. Nearly opaque black with a large rocky light brown head. Semisweet chocolate aroma with vegetal and roasty tinges. Earthy, mildly roasty flavors up front. Heavy chocolate sweetness dominates. Spicy, herbal hops then manifest. Lingering sweetness and some roast in the finish. Mouthfeel is medium, somewhat oily.

Finally! Iíve been waiting a year to try this one. Pours a dark mahogany color that glows slightly translucent at the edges when backlit. A spongy, light brown head shows good retention, but leaves little in the way of lacing behind. The aroma shows cocoa powder, roasted coffee, a touch of caramel, and some lactic creaminess. I spent about ten minutes sniffing this brew, hoping all along that some sweet coconut would emerge, but it never did. Flavors show a malt base of bittersweet cocoa, mocha, and coffee. A decent amount of earthy hops keeps things on the straight and narrow, avoiding excessive sweetness. I still canít specifically detect any coconut, but there is a sweet milky note that really smoothes things out. Iíd say its more of a mocha porter than a coconut porter, which is slightly disappointing. Medium bodied and smooth up front, it finishes with a fizzy carbonation on the swallow. A lightly sticky film coats the mouth. Itís incredibly drinkable, and light enough to possibly work on a hot day of Florida tailgating. Overall, this is a nice little porter, but I guess I built it up in my mind to be so much more (I was thinking liquid Mounds bar). Needs more cowbell? No.....needs more coconut.

Can courtesy of seaoflament. Pours dark cola brown with thick, foamy head. The nose is cocoa, roasted malt, and just a hint of coconut. The flavor is toasted malt up front with a touch of chocolate. There is the slightest touch of coconut in the finish, which is also quite dry. As a coconut lover, I was hoping for more. Still a good beer.

Canned. It pours mildly fizzy and no really strong waft of aroma. The flavor is rather straight forward porter and I donít smell nor taste anything Coconut in the beer. Itís a great canned beer, which influenced my rating and I would be interested what this tastes like in another form (bottle or tap).

SQNfan (591) - Wheaton, Illinois, USA - MAY 10, 2008
Can: Deep brown in color with a moderate light brown head of medium-sized bubbles. The aromas were of chocolate, expresso and when given a chance to warm up...toasted coconut. To be honest at first I didnít get much coconut and was expection a lot....but given time to open and warm the coconut definitely showed itself. The palate was similar to the nose and quite drinkable.
