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, via trade with Hophead22. Pours a very dark brown, foamy tan head that dissapates fairly quickly. Aroma is faint notes of cocoa and malt, no coconut yet. Flavor is sweet, cocoa, roast and on the end more of a burnt coffee flavor to it, coconut is barely noticed because of it. Flavor lingers on the tongue for awhile.

Ungstrup (33802) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 9, 2008
Can. A brown beer with a thin brown head. The aroma is sweet with notes of roasted malt and coconut, as well as lighter notes of alcohol. The flavor is sweet malty with extreme strong notes of coconut as well as lighter notes of roasted malt, leading to a dry finish with notes of cocoa and coconuts. A very interesting combination.

brokephibroke (307) - Mead, Colorado, USA - SEP 8, 2008
Deep opague brown pour with a tan, creamy smallish head. Aroma of molasses, chocolate, malt and CoCoNut. Sweet up front with malty chocolate followed by the toasted CoCoNut. Dark chocolate lingers. Palate is kind of weak, but overall a very tasty island treat! Drank several cans over the last week or so and a couple drafts, this was the best beer I found in Hawaii.

golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - SEP 4, 2008
Can. Dark brown pour with a small light brown head. Aroma is chocolate / cocoa, light roasted malt, and cream. Pretty soft palate, mostly sweet from the cocoa and creme, but the roast slightly offsets that sweetness. One of the better porters I have had.

TURDFERGUSON (4039) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 1, 2008
Can courtesy of hophead22. Thanks Tim! Pours a well-carbonated dark brown with a small tan head. Nose of cocoa, roast, coconut, cream. Flavor is light roast, more chocolate, a bit coconut, not much hops. NIce beer overall that I quite enjoyed.

xmarcnolanx (929) - Kirkwood, Missouri, USA - AUG 31, 2008
Smells like chocolate milk, coconut, more chocolate. Yummy aroma. Some coffee... Pours with a bubbly off- brown head. Very faintly tan and quickly dissipating to a slight ring around the beer. Taste is fizzy, slightly overcarbonated, which hurts the mouthfeel, some slickness. More chocolate milk, some coconut, some astringency from the grains. I really only get a little residual bitterness from the hops. They don’t make their presence known at all in the taste. A little bit of roasted quality in taste and aroma as it warms. This is solid. Thanks Sparky27 (Eric)!

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 30, 2008
Can sampled at RBSG 08. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Roasty and coconut nose. Lighter side of medium bodied with thin texture, perhaps a tad over carbonated. Flavor of carmamel, grains, coconut, and milk chocolate. Good but needs "more" of everything to be great.

ogglethorp (917) - Ohio, USA - AUG 28, 2008
Can, thanks to rogueone! Pours dark brown with a soapy tan head. Aroma is chocolate, light roast, light coconut. Flavor is much the same. Palate is medium bodied, medium carbonation, finished sweet. Nice brew, great to watch the coconut flavor blow up as this warmed.

glkaiser (1214) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 26, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 21, 2010 Black with big brown head. Aroma of sweet chocolate and almond joys. For the most part, I absolutely love the flavors in this. More almond joy with toasted coconut, a bit of chocolate and good roast. Big fan of this style, and this is a great effort.
