Poured black with nice beige head. Nose is roasted malt and taste is chocolate up front then coconut going down. Really nice brew, would love to try this again. The label on the can is really cool too. This was a really enjoyable smooth porter. Well worth the try!

Can my pal Naven brought back from Hawaii. Thanks dave, shared with bikesandbeer. Pours dark blackish brown with a 1 finger tan/brown head. Nose is very coconut, ridiculously so. Taste is really interesting, coconut, chocolate, coffee, and all in a relatively light body. This is a pretty cool beer.

Thanks to my buddy Rockley for bringing this one back! Delicious aroma and flavours of chocolate and sweet vanilla, and coconut. The aroma really is mouthwatering! Nicely balanced-- sweet but not cloying.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. Dark brown body, roasty nose, small tan head, sort of looks like a Pepsi with loose carbonation, and, yes, there is coconut. Moderately sweet, chocolate notes, a lot of coconut, thin palate. Interesting.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can shared by theisti, courtesy of Dansting. Pours a deep, dark brown with a tan head that reduces to a thin skin and laces nicely. On the nose are toasted coconut and milk chocolate up front with coffee sliding in behind. Light to medium bodied and slick (almost flat) with a lightly bitter-roasted finish. The flavor follows the nose, with roasted chocolaty malt, toasted coconut and a bit of a sour note at the finish. A nice variation on the style. I love coconut and chocolate, so it had me at the aroma. Thanks for sharing this with me, Tim.
