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.

Can as an exra from fordest. Pours black with a small head that turns into a hairline halo lacing. Aroma is weird at first, lots of toastiness and roast. But then comes this weird zing of fruitiness thats very sharp, must be he coconut. Taste is less on the weird cocnut and more traditionally a roasty robust porter. Finish has that sharp fruitiness that almost reiminscent of barrel aging. Definitely enjoyable but no more than one.
...like hot chicks on the beach. What the heck does that mean?

sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 19, 2007
Can: Pours black with a tan head. Aroma, chocolate, coffee, some nutty notes, and some roasted malts. Flavor, coconut, chocolate, coffee, and some vanilla. Medium to full bodied, a little on the sweet side, but pretty solid overall.

boboski (1095) - Alabama, USA - JUL 9, 2007
Can. Dark brown pour with deep crimson hints. Mid-sized tan head, decent retention, oily and viscous overall appearance. The aroma is quite sweet. Medium roasted grains, milk sugars or lactose, light coconut, bready malt, vanilla and cinnamon. The flavor is very sweet, too much so for my liking, though it does grow on me. Ample roast, moderate caramel. Bitterness is low, acidity is low, sweetness is nearly excessive. Mouthfeel isn’t very sticky, as I’d feared it would be upon first nosing. Adequate but soft carbonation. Silky mouthfeel, with a rustic approach to malt extraction and sugar conversion. Finishes slightly sticky, balanced, erring on the sweet side. Caramel and coconut come out nicely as it nears room temperature. this would be a wonderful beach beer, under a sun shade.

mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - JUL 9, 2007
Courtesy fordest. Pours black/brown with a small, quickly dissipating light brown head. Smells of dark fruits, a little coconut, roast, light chocolate. Pretty complex nose. Very sweet taste, alot of vanilla and coconut, which is more formidable in the flavor. Get some alcochol, roasted malts, light chocolate, along with some dark fruit in the finish. Very sweet, but still very interesting. I enjoyed it.

nightrider (754) - encinitas, California, USA - JUN 10, 2007
Nice dark brown appearance on tap at SD Fair fest. Aroma of strong coconut and chocolate. Smooth on the palate and quite over bearing coconut flavors. Chocolate lightly noted also. Unique brew.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - JUN 9, 2007
Can. Pours a dark caramel color with a light tan head. Looks very carbonated. Roasted malt aroma with some chocolate and light coconut notes. Medium bodied with roasted malt flavors of chocolate and coffee. Apart from the carbonation, which seems a bit off, this is a great beer.

12 oz can thanks to Fordest. Pours very dark brown with a thick tan head. Aroma of coconut, not as much as I would have thought. Nice coconut flavors with some toasted malt.

UPDATED: JUN 15, 2007 Brought home a can thanks to fordest. Poured a dark black with a nice tan head that lasted at least a minute. Taste and smells of coconut. Truely unique coconut flavor with chocolate and a little coffee. I think the coconut needs to be used in some more brews of this style. It works very well.

Draft at the brewpub. Lots of coconut aromas. Very dark with nice head. More coconut and dusty chocolate on the flavor. Classic Porter finish. Pretty darn tasty

frink (467) - coquitlam, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 10, 2007
Pours a dark brown with reddish highlights. Faint yet pleasant nose, coffee, mocha, burnt toast. Very rich and full mouthfeel. The taste is quite hoppy, sweetly malty, coffee chocolate. A very tasty porter. Sampled on tap at the brewery
