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.

33 cL can, thanks to BierKönig. Pours dark and thick, almost black and with a huge chocolate brown head. Aroma is sweet and roasted with a soft note of chocolate, I don’t sense the coconut at all. Mouthfeel is vevelt soft, creamy. Very smooth chocolate flavour with some liqourice bite towards the finish. The beer remains soft into the finish but softly allows some bitterness to shine through. I may sense some coconut beneath the chocolate and in the smoothness, but it is by no means easy to tell. Very nice brew.

Very good porter here. Creamy and rich. The coconut really only comes through in the finish. Gives it a unique creamy flavor. Good.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 13, 2007
(Can 35,5 cl) Courtesy of Bierkönig. Pours black and opaque with a creamy, light brown head. Lightly burned malt aroma with an edge of coconut. Medium body with an edge of lightly sweet, burned malt and some discreet but absolutely present coconut accents that aren’t stickingly sweet but actually quite refreshing in a piquant manner. There’s a lightly bitter malt astringency in the finish. Quite interesting. 131007

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2008 HUGE thanks to fordest for this one. I was lucky to find somebody with one, and he came through big with his final one for me! Black pour, with a nicely lasting attractive brown head. Smell is a delicious sweet roasty creaminess at first reminding me of a good oatmeal stout. As it opens I think I can detect a tiny hint of coconut in the nose, and it comes off just a hint plasticy for a while, but not offensively so. Taste...Exceptionally smooth, creamy, slightly sweet and roasted with a noticeable, and perfectly highlighted toasted coconut flake flavor in the finish. Very nice! Full bodied, slightly thick, flavorful, and all around a very enjoyable beer that I wish I could get more readily... Just what I hoped it’d be, and easily one of my favorites. Worth getting if you have the chance!

Can from AlohaC. Thanks Christian! Pours almost black with some amber highlights on the edges and a lasting foamy beige head. Aroma is toasted malts, toasted coconuts, vanilla, and lots of chocolate. More stringy coconut, vanilla and chocolate, moderatly sweet, and a very smooth finish. This was a great unique porter. The coconut doesnt overpower like I thought it would.

egajdzis (5194) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 7, 2007
Poured a dark brown red color with a medium sized, light tan head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malts, light cocoa, faint coconut, and nuts. Taste of a standard porter, roasted malts, chocolate, vanilla, and maybe coconut, though it could have just been the power of suggestion.

KingpinIPA (841) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 4, 2007
Dark color. Smell of malt, hops, bakers chocolate, caramel, roasted coffee and bread. Taste of hops, malt, caramel, roasted coffee, Hershey’s chocolate, toffee and an interesting chocolate-coconut bitterness at the end. There is a little too much carbonation but the chocolate taste is special. Nice.

kramer (4686) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 1, 2007
12 oz can, via fordest. Pours a clear dark brown body under a fizzy foamy 2 finger light brown head that slowly faded away. The nose is quite nice, like chocolate covered coconut with lighter roast, coffee, and a note of dark cherry. Up front it’s all Porter with chocolate and roasted malt and a slight burnt note. The coconut emerges like a surprise on the finish. Finishes like a toasted coconut macaroon. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with moderate fizzy carbonation and a lingering finish. This was pretty darn good. The chocolate, roast, and noticably toasted coconut really work well together.

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2007 Can from JohnC tasted at Saarlander’s SoCal tasting with saarlander, cquiroga, dirty_martini & kittiesandbeer, JohnC and others. I think John got it in Hawaii, but is now available online (http://www.liquorcollection.com). Great roasted coconut aroma you can smell all day. I love the smell. Dark dark brown color. Leans a little sweet. Medium-light body. 9,4,8,3,17:4.1 Bought a can in Oahu at Liquor Collection in Dec 07. Wasn’t as good this time. Seems too thin for my tastes: 9,4,6,3,16:3.8.
