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.

Got this in trade from someone, but I’m getting old and I’ve 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 I’d 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.

Can thanks to Stefanje via trade. Sweet, a new state!. Pours a very attractive black with red around the edges. Nose is a bit sweet, distinct note of sesame, likely due to the toasting of the coconut. This is followed by a nice note of coconut. Once I taste it, it a quite robust porter base with a very nice chocolatey-coconut finish. Kind of like a Mounds bar. If I were to have a beer made with coconut, this is how I would want it to taste, though the sesame notes in the nose are a bit overpowering at times. Still, damn fine.

More goodness in a can, out of Hawaii. Aloha to me on this one. This beer was just an outstanding surprise, and way over my expectations. Pours a nice deep ruby / amber with golden head. Aroma is filled with nice flavorful coconut. Anybody who has had fresh coconut, self cut with a cutlass will know what the fresh flavor is like will love this beer. Notes of light malts and chocolate. Taste is just filled with well done coconut, again with same process as above, this tastes like a freshly cut coconut, gives you this thick chunky mouthfeel that you get from opening a fresh coconut. There is also some good roasted malts, with a nice light chocolaty finish. Though low in abv, this porter sure sounds more like a good stout. Purely amazing, well crafted.

Dark, dark brown color and the head dissipates almost instantly. The aroma is like chocolate syrup with toasted coconut. This beer is refreshing and very drinkable. Taste is coconut followed by dark chocolate truffle leaving a roasted malt and coffee aftertaste. Would be great with chocolate desserts.

12 oz. can courtesy of SS08. Huge thanks. Pours a dark brown with reddish highlights and a large tan head that leaves spotty lacing. The aroma is roasted malt, coffee, coconut, and chocolate. The flavor, which is presented in a creamy smooth body, contains roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, and coconut. The opening is on the sweet side, while the finish has a nice bitterness to it. Medium bodied and as stated before, creamy smooth. This is a solid porter and I can’t wait to get my hands on a few more.

12-oz. can. Thanks, cschwaz! Pours black with rubied highlights. Thin gray rim. Rich roasty coffee nose. Creamy medium body with mild carb. Coffee, roast, toast, and coconut on the mid-palate. Long resiny finish. Everything about the body and flavor of this beer is perfectly placed. The aroma and look of it might be just average, but it drinks sensationally well. Lovely stuff.

The can poured into my new Smuttynose snifter produced a good two fingers worth of tan thread that turned to a thin lace. The body was the typical black porter color. Awesome aromas of chocolate and coconut it smells like a mounds candy bar, this is great stuff. The flavor is nice and balanced not too much bitterness from the roasted malts and not too much sweetness from the toasted coconut. The only thing I wish is that it was a little thicker in the mouthfeel department. Another easy drinking Porter enjoyed every drop and was left wanting more. If I saw this in the store I would grad a 4 pack of this for sure

Old rating. Aroma of chocolate and maybe some coconut i think. I couldnt tell if it was actually coconut that i was smelling. A very smooth to drink beer though.
