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.

Again, another brew Ive 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 :)"

Pours dark brown with a thin tan head. Smells roasty with lots of cocoa, some coconut hints, spicy. Tastes roasty with a nice chocolatey undertone and some fruity hints on the finish.

12oz can courtesy of BrewerB, thanks man. Dark black, not much head. It smells roasty, and good, hints of coconut. The flavor is a robust porter, roasty with only the slightest hint of coconut, maybe its the power of suggestion? Mouthfeel is smooth but a little thin and this is easy to drink but I dont think Id want more than one at a time. Serving type: can Reviewed on: 07-30-2008 02:57:49

Enjoyed from a four pack of cans. Pours jet black with voluminous chestnut-colored head that dissipates to a puny single-centimeter (but sustained) head. Aroma is rather muted and disappointing, especially when it is colder. As it warms up, some light roast is apparent, as well as hints of that coconut, some other nutty smells, and even vanilla. Taste is stupendous. This beer is quite the palate cleanser, which is surprising for such a dark offering. Quenches your thirst surprisingly well. Lots of toasty coconut, vanilla, and some hints of coffee in the taste. Absolutely stupendous. If not for the aroma, this would be a near perfect offering. I really wish they sold this in AZ.

Boutip (5898) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 12, 2009
Can: Poured a pitch-black color porter with a rather large medium brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of roasted coconut is clearly noticeable with some roasted malt notes. Taste is a nice mix between some fresh roasted coconut and some dry roasted malt. Bitterness is well controlled and coconut is well balance and more then a novelty. Body is a bit thin for the style but carbonation is pretty good. I could see this going well with some coconut chocolate cake.

(12oz can) Courtesy of IrishBoy. I really enjoyed this beers roast coffee aroma and flavour, though I did not detect any coconut? Really, coconut? Anyhow, the sweetness is balanced by the brews slight ashtray flavour. I actually liked it. 7/3/7/3/15

Got this in trade from someone, but Im getting old and Ive forgotten who it was. The pour was of a pretty standard porter. The aroma was coffee, chocolate malts and an odd perfumy odor. The flavor was roasted coffee beans, chocolate malt and definite coconut, mostly on the aftertaste. Almost an oily mouthfeel. Decent, but not something Id want to drink often.

Can pours a thick-looking black with tall brown head. Pretty. Roasty and toasty nose with noticeable dark chocolate notes. Flavor has some dark cocoa sweetness with subtle roasted sourness, like stale espresso, and a lingering burnt bitterness that might be a bit much, actually, detracts a little from drinkability. Overall a nice flavor. Maybe a touch thin.
