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.

Always great to find an amazing beer in a fairly obscure style. Not many like this on the mainland. Loved this one. Dark pour I with a nice foamy tan head. Nice chocolate and coffee notes and on the palate. Great porter. Coconut is as subtle and delicious as I had hoped. Not too overpowering. The brewers at Maui executed this one perfectly.

This is the one beer that I would chance mixing with premium vanilla ice cream. Iím not sure if this makes it sound yummy to others, though.

This one is so much better than you would expect a coconut beer in a can to be that it is getting lots of sympathy points in the ratings. And it is surprisingly nice for a low alcohol porter, providing bonus points. Slightly sweet, slightly chocolately nose, strong coconut in the finish, but sweet and balanced. Not big in the mouth, but again quite acceptable in a lowish alcohol beer.

UPDATED: MAY 19, 2008 Didnít think Iíd like this one at all, but it kind of surprised me. It poured very dark with a tan head. Aromas were pretty bold, mostly coconut and roast. Body was pretty nice -- not too thin and not too thick. Malts were very toasty and sweet. Coconut aromas really gave the beer a bit of depth. Iím not a big coconut fan, either, and I actually enjoyed that unique addition. Lesser notes of sweet vanilla and dark chocolate followed. Pleasant and enjoyable porter. Only complaint was that it was a tad too sweet for my buds.

I had this beer on tap at the brewery while I was on vacation there. I love porters, but I have to admit that I was a little disappointed when I had this beer. It is possible that I built the beer up too much in my mind because it won gold at the 2006 World Beer Cup. It pours very dark with slight ruby color at the edge. The aroma is farily light with hop and roasted hints. As a robust porter, it isnít bad but the coconut isnít as strong as I would have hoped. It doesnít really make itself evident until the back end of the flavor when I can taste some burnt coconut. Overall it is pretty balanced.

Can. Brown with beige head. Aroma of coffee, sweet coconut. Roasty, toasty, malty coconut, coffee flavor. Some hops on the finish. Quite sweet but it works. Good body, smooth texture.

Iíve been saving these cans since July and now at the beginning of the Iowa winter, a little taste of the islands. The aroma begins with noticeable coconut and chocolate notes. Flavors are the same with the addition of a slight smokiness and some rice. Creamy and smooth with a mild overall palate. Sweetly balanced. A decent porter. My 400th rating.

UPDATED: APR 3, 2008 Trying this one again, lots of coconut in the aroma. Canned, thanks for sharing, marchcow. This was exactly what I was expecting. Black body with a light brown head. The aroma was obvious coconut with some milk chocolate and coffee. The taste was light milk chocolate with some roasted peanuts. A nice porter.

Thanks to hopdog for bringing this one back from his trip to Hawaii for me. Pours a deep brown with some amber highlights and a medium bubbly/creamy tan head that left some lacing. Aroma and flavor of Mounds bars/Almond joy. Heck I donít even really like coconut in candy (mostly due to the texture though). So what this beer does is gets rid of that texture and leaves you with a nice mix of toasted coconut, milk chocolate, some lightly roasted/toasty malts, cocoa powder and nuts. Picking up some slight traces of coffee in both the flavor and aroma. Iím a fan...a very well made porter to start out with the coconut just making this a unique and tasty treat.
