Canned. It pours mildly fizzy and no really strong waft of aroma. The flavor is rather straight forward porter and I don’t smell nor taste anything Coconut in the beer. It’s a great canned beer, which influenced my rating and I would be interested what this tastes like in another form (bottle or tap).

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can: Deep brown in color with a moderate light brown head of medium-sized bubbles. The aromas were of chocolate, expresso and when given a chance to warm up...toasted coconut. To be honest at first I didn’t get much coconut and was expection a lot....but given time to open and warm the coconut definitely showed itself. The palate was similar to the nose and quite drinkable.

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.
