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 Padrefan98, thanks to the bestest trading partner ever!! Fantastic aroma of roasted chocolate malts with just the right amount of coconut added in for a truely memorable aroma. Pours a slightly thin looking deep black with a foamy light beige head. Palate on this one is average body with strong carbonation biting carbonation. Flavor is sweet roasted malts with chocolate, light coffee and more sweetness, I’m guessing from the coconut. Really glad I got a chance to try this one and it only gets better as it warms, must be great on the beaches of the 50th then.

Bière #2 au Mondial 08 (28/5/08), canette. Chocolat noisette, mince collet. Arome très chocolaté, malte torrifier sucré avec un peu de lactosse. Goût de coconut enrobé dans du chocolat, un peu sûrette et légèrement malté. Le plus doux porter que j’ai gouté à date!

MartinT (8135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 28, 2008
My Bottom Line:
A coconut-ridden jungle engulfs the lean caramel maltiness of this interesting, but unidimensional novelty Porter.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam circles the brown-sleeved black.
-Goodness gracious, that’s a lot of coconut!
-Even though this is quite sweet, the body’s lightness makes the overall result rather drinkable (if you have a sweet tooth).
-I’m not nuts for coconut, so this coconutty concoction is not my cup of cocoa.

Can.

Bottle, thanks so much to SQNfan! Pours a nice black with a tan colored head. Aroma is nice with coffee, coconut, caramel. Flavor is creamy and rich with a nice toasted coconut flavor. Very good mouthfeel. This is a great beer. When the beer gets a tad warmer the coconut really shines through.

Sparky (2243) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 27, 2008
Sampled at Hellbilly’s Hellraiser II. 12oz can. Pours a deep, clear black with minimal tan head. Nose is earthy, fresh coconut milk and coffee. Palate is coffee, cocoa, hazelnut and light coconut – almost like a coffee drink with flavored creamer. Medium slightly creamy mouth feel. Good stuff.

MI2CA (1340) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - MAY 27, 2008
Sampled at HotShotz Indy tasting May 24, 2008 - Aroma is dark malts, oats, coconut and chocolate. Pours dark brown with a small brown head and good lacing. Flavor matches aroma with a nice coconut finish. Palate is creamy and smooth. Unique and tasty brew I would like to try again at home by myself.

Can pours a dark brown color with off white head. The aromas from this brew are sweet roasted cocount and chocolate. The taste follows the aroma and does not disappoint. This brew is amazing. From the choclate fudge coconut flavors to the medium mouthfeel to the smells is gives off as I drink it. I love it! I need more of this stuff. Yeah!

Can
Dark brown colour. Sweet chocolate coconut nose. Very fudgey with lots of coconut. It’s very prominent but does integrate well. I wouldn’t call it "my thing" though.

Pours dark brown, with a light brown head. Aroma is chocolate, roasted malt, and just a touch of coconut. Flavor is roasted malt, chocolate, and again, just a hint of coconut. Thanks to Foolish_Mortal for this can.
