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.

12 oz can from Bevmo. pours an opaque black with a small tan head that vanishes quickly. The aroma is rich with multi-layered chocolates; cocoa, bittersweet, milk and dark. The flavor mirrors the aroma--plenty of chocolate plus roasted malts, mocha coffee, coconut and vanilla. The mouthfeel is smooth and silky. The finish is long with lingering biter chocolate. Overall: Perhaps the best pure chocolate flavor in any beer. A real treat.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - JUN 18, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2008 12oz can. Love the cans. Anyway, pours nearly black with a pretty stable tan head that leaves a ring of foam. The aroma has dusty cocoa powder, dough, dark chocolate, and I guess what is coconut, though having never smelled it in a beer Iím not completely sure. Ya, that must be what that is, and I like it. The chocolate and roasted coconut definitely make a good combo. Medium bodied with a creamy texture aided by pretty light carbonation. The flavor hits with some creamy chocolate sweetness, and then ends with a dry coffee bitterness that stays modest. A bit sweet up front, and the coconut stays subtle, which is probably good. If I was tasting this blind, I would never be able to tell that there was coconut, but once you know, its easy to tell what the additional flavor component is. Nice stuff, and pretty cool, though I can see tiring of it after awhile.

In short: Exactly that, a coconut flavoured stout/porter. Kind of fun at first but not too often
How: Can, sample at Mondial de la BiŤre 2008
The look: Black body topped by a tan ring of foam
In long: I thought the nose was roasted and moderately coconut (although some of my friends smelling my own glass thought it was intensely coconut). Taste is more of the same, light-medium roastiness level, moderately coconut, a light lactic impression. The lactic notes, roasted malts and coconut blended together to create a coconut and chocolate ice-cream flavour. A ok beer once in a while. Hawaii 3-0/5-0

Dogbrick (9118) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 11, 2008
Sample at the Most Honorable SuperHappyFun Stout Tasting. Can courtesy of a traveling coworker. This beer pours a dark brown/mahogany color with a medium thin beige head that diminishes steadily. Aroma of coconut and roasted pralines. Medium body with flavors of coconut milk, roasted nuts and dark chocolate. Touches of hops as well. The finish is creamy with a mild coconut aftertaste. Interesting and enjoyable overall.

Taverner (1100) - San Ramon, California, USA - JUN 10, 2008
Aroma is chocolate and coconuts. The flavor chewy toasty malts and a little bit of coffee. Very sweet but doesnít overdo it on the coconut. Spicy at the finish - you can taste some hop notes in the nose at the end. Pours blackish brown with tan head.

bhensonb (12048) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 9, 2008
Can. Dark aromas of roasted/toasted malt, choco/coffee and something that might be coconut. Dark brown/black color with a tan smear for head. Medium body with fizzy carbonation which turns smooth. Flavor is chocolate, coffee, coconut and dark roasted malt. Not exactly burnt, but going that direction. Itís a bit peppery at the finish, which seems neither sweet nor bitter. Rather powerful flavors, so this should be last rather than first.

trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 9, 2008
Wow, it was weird to drink beer this good out of a can. Pours dark brown with a 1 inch thick off-white head. Lovely aroma of roasted malt, vanilla, and coconut. Delicious blend of roasted coffee and hops, then moves into a smoother powdered cocoa, and finishes with a sweet coconut. Very nice.

doubleo (1432) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 8, 2008
12oz can. Pours black with a moderate light brown head, specks of lace, and no retention to speak of. Smells of coconut and toasted malts, some vanilla, semi-sweet overall. Tastes more chocolatey than coconut. Slight coconut up front and then sweet chocolatey, then dry roasty malty on the finish. Good, not great. Medium body, vibrant carbonation.

pepsican (1489) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - JUN 8, 2008
thanks to hellbilly for this one. Part of mystery swap 3.0. Thanks! Dark brown pour with a large tan head. Cola and malt aroma. Flavor was toasted malts, chocolate, coffee, and a bit of coconut. Some hoppy bitterness round out the slightly watery finish. Very interesting, but I remember my last can having a bit more oomph in the coconut flavor. Still good though.

Alldaydrinker (559) - Norwood, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 8, 2008
Courtesy of Hellbilly. Pours a dark brown opaque color with easily aggravated large tan fizzy head. Nose is odd, mild roasted malt, cocoa and barely detectable coconut, touch of grassiness in the background as well. Initial taste roasted malt, cocoa, mollasses. Coconut is barely noticeable. Finishing with balancing hops, roasted malts and cocoa continiung. Hops remain on the palate for good duration, slight chalkiness also proceeds in the finish. Whereís the coconut? Medium body. Fizzy mouthfeel. Good head retention.
