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.

Dark color. Smell of malt, hops, bakers chocolate, caramel, roasted coffee and bread. Taste of hops, malt, caramel, roasted coffee, Hershey’s chocolate, toffee and an interesting chocolate-coconut bitterness at the end. There is a little too much carbonation but the chocolate taste is special. Nice.

12 oz can, via fordest. Pours a clear dark brown body under a fizzy foamy 2 finger light brown head that slowly faded away. The nose is quite nice, like chocolate covered coconut with lighter roast, coffee, and a note of dark cherry. Up front it’s all Porter with chocolate and roasted malt and a slight burnt note. The coconut emerges like a surprise on the finish. Finishes like a toasted coconut macaroon. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with moderate fizzy carbonation and a lingering finish. This was pretty darn good. The chocolate, roast, and noticably toasted coconut really work well together.

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2007 Can from JohnC tasted at Saarlander’s SoCal tasting with saarlander, cquiroga, dirty_martini & kittiesandbeer, JohnC and others. I think John got it in Hawaii, but is now available online (http://www.liquorcollection.com). Great roasted coconut aroma you can smell all day. I love the smell. Dark dark brown color. Leans a little sweet. Medium-light body. 9,4,8,3,17:4.1 Bought a can in Oahu at Liquor Collection in Dec 07. Wasn’t as good this time. Seems too thin for my tastes: 9,4,6,3,16:3.8.

Courtesy mgumby10. Very dark brown with brown edges. Small tan head. Nose of roasty malt, dry chocolate, subtle coconut, subtle lactose. Similar flavor is more intense and adds vanilla and a little licorice. Medium body, softly carbonated, easy drinking. Solid porter.

BBB63 (5960) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - SEP 16, 2007
Can from John and served in a standard pint glass: Near opaque with a nice frothy tan head and very good lacing. The aroma notes of grainy and chocolate malts, lots of toast (some of that maybe the coconut), vanilla beans, coffee, and a dusty ester. Smells quite nice but then I put it up to my lips...arggh!

There is a burnt sugary and solvent component to this I just found not to my liking one bit. I do get some coconut and mocha flavors along with a small pinch of coffee grinds. The mouth feel is a tad watery and soft with a medical cleaner aftertaste. High hopes that came crashing to earth in a hurry.

Can. Black beer with a big tan head. Roasty, slight chocolate aroma. Roasty flavor melllowed with some vanilla and nuts with sweet malt backing. Lingering sweet rich malt with vanilla and nuts. Medium body. Easy drinking.

Capa (1968) - Manama, BAHRAIN - SEP 11, 2007
Pours a very deep mahogany with a medium, tan head. Aroma is pretty heavy on the roasted malts, coffee, toasted coconut, molasses, and chocolate. Medium, sliky smooth body. Mmm. Roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, some toasted coconut, and a mild molasses finish. I like the coconut in this porter, though I wish it was a bit more pronounced in the flavor. The flavors sorta fall apart in the finish, with it ending a little too bittersweet. I actually did enjoy this porter, though.

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2008 As I started drinking and lost myself in what I was doing I totally forgot it was a beer I was drinking. They managed to mask the alcohol very well maybe too well. Should step the alcohol up to at least 6% I think. EDIT: 01/18/08 I getting hints of Apple Banana in the nose at first pour.

I just walked into Starbucks and smelled their latest Frapaccino, Coconut Chocolate. Not too sweet. Roasted coconuts in the mouth. Not well balanced. Not enough hops. Coconut chocoloate finish. Japanese coconut porters kill this.
