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 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.

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.

Tried getting this while on Kauai and couldn’t. Then my buddies friend mysteriously shipped him a can out of the blue that his parents go in Maui. The beer gods are with me. Poured black with a small tan head. Smelled of dark roasted malt and real coconut. Taste was quite roasty with some chocolate and coconut. This experiment turned out quite well.

can, maui brewing: Wow. this is a unique take on a porter and it’s very well done. The aroma is roasty, but once you taste it you get the coconut in the finish, not too much, but it works, and it works very well. great job

12oz can, courtesy of artusory. Thanks, Ryan! Pours a dark brown color; light tan head with patchy lacing. Pleasant, nutty and chocolate aroma; definitely a show of coconut, but integrated nicely into a well-roasted porter. Medium-to-full, creamy mouthfeel, with an oily, nutty presence coupled to a roasted / milk chocolate porter backbone; very well-done, interesting porter. Medium, oily and chocolaty finish. I’d buy this all the time if it was local.

Shared by sliffy. Black body with a brown head. The aroma is of bittersweet chocolate, almonds and some coffee. The flavor is much the same, except sweeter. I really don’t get tons of coconut flavor-more like sugary chocolate. A little chalky with some harshness to the flavor. Not bad overall--but slightly dissapointing.

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?
