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.

Nutty chocolate and subtle but present toasted coconut aroma. Deep brown/black with thick tan head. Excellent balance of flavors. Beautiful mouth feel, almost buttery. One of the best beers I’ve ever tasted...absolutely fantastic!

Microbrew in a can, turned out a lot better then I had thought it would. One of the better beers I had in Hawaii while I was on vacation. Nice porter with a sweet (almost a little too sweet) coconut flavor. Thin tan head. Unique brew, seemed to have a little chocolate as well. A little too sweet, but a nice Hawaiian brew and a unique idea.

Can thanks to hopdog: Pours a nearly opaque dark mahogany with a spotty-lacing light tan head. Aroma of fresh toasty sweet coconut and caramel with some dark chocolate complexity. Body starts a little thinner with a nice chocolate coconut flavor throughout and a drier, toasty doughy finish with some bittersweet dark chocolate. A very unique and tasty brew, it you like coconut that is.

Thanks to eyedrinkale for sharing this one. Dark black beer. Thin tan head. Soft sweet chocolate base. Some earthiness and light coffeeish character. The flavour is where the coconut really comes through. Sweet toasted coconut intermingled with sweet chewy milk chocolate. Lightly rummy as well with a soft plumminess that works pretty well. Very interesting beer that works surprisingly well.

12oz Can - The Liquor Collection - Honolulu, Hawaii
Aroma – Deep rich Dark malt with a light lingering Coconut aroma.
Appearance – Dark brown in color a hazy look with a nice brown head. Felt like it was a porter shook up look.
Flavor – Tons of chocolate and coconut flavor in the beer. A great beer and a fun beer to drink.
Palate – Nice Mouthfeel, great texture with a nice dry finish.
Overall – I like this beer it is going to have a cult following and people from all over are going to seek this beer. It is a great idea and a great brew. Great Job.

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. I’m 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.
