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. 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.

I’ve 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 don’t 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. I’m a fan...a very well made porter to start out with the coconut just making this a unique and tasty treat.

Pours nearly solid black with a thin brown head. Smells like a Mounds bar with a little toffee. Moderate body with a slightly oily mouthfeel. Bitter chocolate and coconut flavor. Long coconut finish. Memorable beer.

Can. Black pour with a tan head. Aroma of coconut, chocolate, and toasted malt. Flavors of coconut, sweet roasted malt, light smoke and a bit of cream. Medium body, roasty/bittersweet toasty/sweet finish. Nice.

12 oz can brought back from Hawaii by one of my co-workers. Served at cellar temperature. Poured a clear dark brown color with ruby red light shining through. Head was bubbly, light brown, and dissipated relatively quickly. Aroma was dominated by malty chocolate with subdued roastiness and minimal coconut. Slightly sweet on the tongue with lots of milk chocolate flavor and a dash of cocoa powder. There was minimal roasted malt and only a hint of coconut. Pretty good beer, but a bit overrated, IMO.

12oz can from a trade with someone (sorry). Dark brown/black body with a medium sized, tan head, fading. The nose is all coconut, chocolates, toffee and vanilla. The flavor is lightly sweet with milk chocolate, brown sugar, coconut, caramel and lots of cocoa on the finish. Medium body is soft with light carbonation. Nice.
