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.

Sampled at HotShotz Indy tasting May 24, 2008 - Aroma is dark malts, oats, coconut and chocolate. Pours dark brown with a small brown head and good lacing. Flavor matches aroma with a nice coconut finish. Palate is creamy and smooth. Unique and tasty brew I would like to try again at home by myself.

Can pours a dark brown color with off white head. The aromas from this brew are sweet roasted cocount and chocolate. The taste follows the aroma and does not disappoint. This brew is amazing. From the choclate fudge coconut flavors to the medium mouthfeel to the smells is gives off as I drink it. I love it! I need more of this stuff. Yeah!

Dark brown colour. Sweet chocolate coconut nose. Very fudgey with lots of coconut. Itís very prominent but does integrate well. I wouldnít call it "my thing" though.

Pours dark brown, with a light brown head. Aroma is chocolate, roasted malt, and just a touch of coconut. Flavor is roasted malt, chocolate, and again, just a hint of coconut. Thanks to Foolish_Mortal for this can.

Very gorgeous porter with a beautiful almond colored head. Complex with five different malts. I tasted coffee, chocolate, dark fruit, and roasted coconut... Perfect for summertime.

12oz can. Nearly opaque black with a large rocky light brown head. Semisweet chocolate aroma with vegetal and roasty tinges. Earthy, mildly roasty flavors up front. Heavy chocolate sweetness dominates. Spicy, herbal hops then manifest. Lingering sweetness and some roast in the finish. Mouthfeel is medium, somewhat oily.

Finally! Iíve been waiting a year to try this one. Pours a dark mahogany color that glows slightly translucent at the edges when backlit. A spongy, light brown head shows good retention, but leaves little in the way of lacing behind. The aroma shows cocoa powder, roasted coffee, a touch of caramel, and some lactic creaminess. I spent about ten minutes sniffing this brew, hoping all along that some sweet coconut would emerge, but it never did. Flavors show a malt base of bittersweet cocoa, mocha, and coffee. A decent amount of earthy hops keeps things on the straight and narrow, avoiding excessive sweetness. I still canít specifically detect any coconut, but there is a sweet milky note that really smoothes things out. Iíd say its more of a mocha porter than a coconut porter, which is slightly disappointing. Medium bodied and smooth up front, it finishes with a fizzy carbonation on the swallow. A lightly sticky film coats the mouth. Itís incredibly drinkable, and light enough to possibly work on a hot day of Florida tailgating. Overall, this is a nice little porter, but I guess I built it up in my mind to be so much more (I was thinking liquid Mounds bar). Needs more cowbell? No.....needs more coconut.

Can courtesy of seaoflament. Pours dark cola brown with thick, foamy head. The nose is cocoa, roasted malt, and just a hint of coconut. The flavor is toasted malt up front with a touch of chocolate. There is the slightest touch of coconut in the finish, which is also quite dry. As a coconut lover, I was hoping for more. Still a good beer.

Canned. It pours mildly fizzy and no really strong waft of aroma. The flavor is rather straight forward porter and I donít smell nor taste anything Coconut in the beer. Itís a great canned beer, which influenced my rating and I would be interested what this tastes like in another form (bottle or tap).
