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 Foodland, Kapa’a, Kauai. Good lord this is good. Super nice looking dark brown/amber color. Smells like coconut, tastes like German Chocolate Cake in a can. This stuff is so damn drinkable and tasty. Excellently crafted - the balance is remarkable - the coconut is not overwhelming and there is a fair amount of hops to keep you from forgetting that this is beer and not cake. The consistency is almost as if it was poured out of a nitro tap. I wouldn’t change a thing about this beer.

Canned. Thanks Bolagshataren. Ruby brown colour with poor head. Aroma is mostly from coconut and is very oily. Slippery mouthfeel, with cocoa dominating. Chocolate powder is present towards the bitterness. Good tasty, yet with plenty of cocoa sun oil to it.

Harsebrau (227) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - MAR 21, 2008
Can from Nathan. Very dark pour with ample head of tan fluff. Chocolate abounds in the aroma. Slight alcohol presence as well. Rich and thick of coconut, chocolate, malt, slight hop. Good lacing as the beer disappeared.

slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 4, 2008
Can. Nose is chocolate and coconut, purely. Ruby-brown with a brown head. Really tasty chocolate and coconut flavor. Palate is too thin but the flavor is very nice.

Great aroma. Dark fruit, chocolate, alcohol, and spice. Pours a dark amber red to black. Creamy swirly head. Creamy chocolate flavor, coconut, and some smoke. The palate is way too thin and watery. Still a decent beer, but could be a bit thicker;

Canned (Thanks Bolagshataren!). Deep amber colour, not much head. Aroma is coffee, cocoa and some roasted malts. Flavour is roasted malts, some smoked wood, cocoa as well as mild notes of coffee. The coffee grows into the finish though. Aftertaste is a mix of coffee, roast and cocoa.

omhper (19230) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 25, 2008
Canned, thanks Bolagshataren! Very black, small beige head. Non-surprising cocoa aroma. Sweet and very roasty, creamy and soft, near full bodied. Cocoa domintes coffee. Tarry bitter finish. Unusual, and quite interesting.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 24, 2008
Canned, courtesy of bolagshataren. Pours out in dark brown colour with pale brown head. Milky and toasty aroma with a strong presence of coconut and sweet chocolate. Medium-bodied and rather well-integrated flavour where the coconut stands out most with touches of sweet chocolate, nuts and coffee. Coconut, crackers, chocolate, brown sugar and coffee in the long finish. Quite good and interesting but the coconut component could have a been a bit more subtle. Pretty nice one, though.

kyzr (1148) - Belgrade, Montana, USA - FEB 21, 2008
Can thanks to hopdog. Dark pour with brown head. Coconut and roasted malt on the nose. Flavor has a lot of coconut up front, then settles in to chocolate, coffee and sweet malt. Mouthfell had a good amount of carbination, and watery body, with a finish of some bitterness
