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, thanks to JW77! Pours translucent dark brown, nearly black with a massive and lacy tan head. Aroma of chocolate and roasted coconut. Kinda smells like there might be some oatmeal in there as well. Medium light body and medium carbonation. Taste has tons of chocolate, some brown sugar, a little coffee and that toasted coconut. Crisp finish with a touch of smoke.

Thanks, Dave, for the sweet can as an extra. Dark brown pour with small but steady dark tan head. From the pour, it’s clear this is a thinner porter, but that’s not really a bad thing. This is a highly sessional beer, one I’d even venture to say I’d drink on a warm summer day. Wouldn’t say that about most porters. Found the coconut to be remarkably subtle. There in a roasty way on the nose along with some vanilla and dark chocolate. A little coffee. Similar palate, with a little more hops and fruit coming out. Really surprised how much I like this. Big ups for originality.

marcus (7674) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 1, 2008
This dark brown ale poured from a can with a decent tan head and a roasted malt aroma. There is an intense chocolate malt flavor with coffee and coconut undertones. Very drinkable.

Can from Sparky27 - thanks! Darker brown pour with a roasty-chocolatey aroma that features a bit of hops and coconut. Flavor is roasty, sweet, and coffee-ish, a bit of coffee. Nice brew that I wouldn’t mind having on a regular basis.

Can shared at Cbus tasting 11 by Rogueone. Thanks Kris! Aroma was coffee and coconut...Very light. Taste was sweet coffee, chocolate with the coconut just coming in. Not over done.

12 oz can from BevMo, Brea. Pours dark black with a full fluffy brown head. Aroma of chocolate malt and slight hops. Flavor of chocolate and finishes with a refreshing and distinct coconut flavor. Lives up to it’s name. Very Good!

12 oz can. Dark brown with a tan head. Nose an earthy coffee and toasted coconut. Medium body with spritzy carb; a bit sticky. Taste is tangy coffee, brown sugar and faint coconut. Long mocha finish. Simple but unique. Easy drinking with wonderful balance and blending.

BOLTZ7555 (2979) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUN 28, 2008
Tons of chocolate malt in the nose, along with dark roasted Kona coffee. Tightly interlocked tan bubbles create a massive head. Taste dominated by cocoa and coffee, with the coconut sitting in the backseat. Thin palate as well. Just okay.

Aroma is nice with a strong dark coffee and a bit of a light bitter chocolate with brown sugar and toasted coconut. Pours with a large creamy light brown head. The head lasts a while and leaves good lacing on the side of the glass. The beer itself is a murky dark brown. Falvor starts off moderately sweet and finishes moderately bitter. Lots of Coffee and a nice toasty cocnut taste that lingers at the back of the tongue. Miedium to full bodied. Creamy Mouth feel with lively carbonation. I enjoyed this extremely nice coconut beer.
