UPDATED: JUL 22, 2012 355ml can (Cracked Kettle, Amsterdam)
Almost black, fizzy head. Plain-chocolate aroma, some coconut too, but not caricatured. Soft carbonation, smooth palate, some burnt notes go up the nose. Tasty sweet porter, but with lovely burnt coconut tastes too. Certainly quite silky, and pleasantly refreshing. I’ve got to admit - I like US porters.
Rerate: 355ml can (Drink Shop, Tallinn)
Brewer’s inter-batch consistency verified - this is basically identical to the above. A little less full, perhaps, and I might drop the taste to just a 7. However, I always believe in rounding up to the better sample, so the 8 stays. Oddly, there’s almost a spiciness to the aroma this time, like a thai curry. The mind playing tricks with the coconut perhaps.

Shared at a tasting, this porter delivered exactly what I was anticipating. The marriage of roasted, robust porter and sweet, milky coconut works wonderfully. Dark brown body with a small, lasting head and supple lacing. Sweet and toasted aroma with a hint of chocolate. Medium bodied and viscous. Creamy and smooth with a good malty body that is sweet with the coconut and mildly bitter. Plenty of nuts and toasted bread with chocolate and toffee.

Can from Ledger’s in Berkeley. Black color with a beige head. Aroma of roasted malt and coconut. Flavor is roast, sweet malt, chocolate, coconut milk. Coconut asserts itself more as the beer warms. Creamy, medium-full palate. Good stuff.

Can, 12 fl. oz. Pours a dark reddish brown beer with a lightbrown head. The aroma is coconut (!), some roasted malt, vegetable and DMS. The flavor is also roasted malt and coconut. The palate is thin, and overall there is too much coconut.
