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 poured a clear dark brown with a lasting tan head. Aromas of cococnut and dark chocolate with a hint of roastiness. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of dark chocolate, toasted coconut and hints of coffee and vanilla with a smooth chocolatey coconut finish.

Colour... nearly black with a thick tan head. Nose... nicely roasty but I donít detect much coconut. Palate... roasty malt, hints of coffee, very faint coconut and a touch of vanilla.

Christian (12884) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 6, 2009
Very dark brown with a small off-white head. Aroma of coconut and chocolate. I know itís made from real ingredients, but it just reminds me too much of bounty bar to be pleasant. Sweet roasted malt and chocolate flavour with some coconut - better than the aroma. Lingering chocolate finish. Kudos for producing the coconut aroma, but itís not really my thing.

Can thanks to Hophead22
Pours chocolate brown with a nice puffy beige head. Nose is very plain and simple: chocolate and coconut. The flavor is a bit better, some roasted malt emerging to compliment the coconut and heavy chocolate flavor. Moderate body, a little chalky. Overall pretty straightforward. Tasty, but if I want chocolate and coconut, I can look outside of beer for better examples.

Thanks kiefdog for the share. Pours dark brown with off-white head. Nose is a ton of coconut with whiskey, vanilla, oak, roasted malt, and some earth. Flavor is roasted malt, whiskey, lots of coconut, and some barely-there hops. Light to medium bodied and delicious.

12oz can courtesy of gibby. Pours a dark chocolate brown to cola color with a thin tannish-white head. Aroma is sweet and malty with notes of chocolate, coconut, ripe fruit, banana, and some hints of boozy brandy. Flavor is sweet and malty as well with notes of sweet coconut (and a lot of it), vanilla, toffee, some ripe fruit, hints of caramel. Generally medium body with a pleasing malty coconut finish.

Can. Pours dark brown with a fading bubbly tan head. Nose is mostly coconut and dark chocolate, with a little bit of banana bread. Very nice, but could stand to be a little stronger. Taste adds a little coffee and roasted malt, but itís essentially like drinking an Almond Joy. Mouthfeel is a little watery. Decent finish of bitter coconut, slightly astringent.

Good porter. Dark brown pour with light tan head. Lots of chocolate in this one, with hints of coconut, iced coffee, and nuts. Nice flavor, very creamy, like milk chocolate. Tasty and easy to drink, not very heavy.

Thanks to Sparky for getting this beer for me. I have been trying to get a hold of this for a while. Smells of coconut and coffee. Taste was extremely smooth and silky with lots of dark chocolate and coconut. Taste was almsot like a milk shake, it wasnít too heavu either, it was just right

Again, another brew Iíve been wanting to try for a while. Poured a pitch black with a creamy tan head. Coffee, faint coconut notes on the nose and maybe a little chocolate too. Taste is rich, not overdoing it with subtle coconut and almond on the palate. A mighty fine beer I wish i could get a hold of for camping. Thanks shawn :)"
