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.

12 oz. can in trade Snojerk321-thanks!!! Served in pint glass- poured non transparent black when held to a light source, low clumpy carbonation, bubbly off tan head went away a little too quick with little lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, with notes of molasses and roasted coconuts in the background. Hits the mouth with a wide body, malt was toasted until black but not burned just from feel, a hint of sweetness in the middle with cream underneath, finish punches you in the knee if you think you don’t want to have another snort. Note to self- don’t visit Hawaii- will stay at the bar the entire time drinking this.

Dense brown hue, thick layer of tan shaving cream-like head, minimal lacing. Smell is coffee and dark chocolate malts, roast and bready malts, light hint of earthy hops and booze. Taste is mostly roasted malts with a good dose of dark chocolate and coffee, earthy hops, a hint of actual coconut lingers on the edges of the palate especially during the bitter finish. Palate is thin-bodied, watery smooth texture, carbonation is pretty high and prickly here. Overall, a unique porter with tones of coconut that accentuate the malt profile without being too overwhelming, very exciting but I wouldn’t drink a whole lot of this at a time, strangely the alcohol seems stronger than it should be at 5.5%.

UPDATED: OCT 10, 2009 Pours pitch black with only a hint of mahogany around the edges when held up to the light. The two-finger off-white head dissipates fairly quickly and leaves decent lacing. Big sweet toasted coconut aroma with roasted coffee in the background. There is also a big sweet malt background. Taste is huge on the toasted cocunuts - so sweet and so tasty. There is also a bit of coffee and dark chocolate on a sweet malt base. Mouthfeel is silky smooth with strong carbonation that tickles the tongue. This porter is absurdly drinkable. I wouldn’t trust myself if I had a lot of this in the fridge. Sweet, but not overpoweringly so, this is a fantastic porter.

Something new at Bevmo Oakland! A little on the expensive side $9/4pk, but it was in a can and intrigued me. Pours a nice tan head, but it falls fairly quickly, leaving a thin layer on top of the beer. Perhaps the oils from the coconut are causing it to collapse? Aroma is that of a porter. No special coconut in the aroma. Dark brown body which doesn’t let light pass through. Flavor is where the toasted coconut resides! Very first part of the flavor profile was the coconut, which then seques to sweet malts, including chocolate malt. Really interesting. Very pleasant beer. Would be really interested in trying it on draft. Hope they start canning/bottling their other beers too.

This poured a black color with a moderate tan head. The aroma is chocolate, coffee, and coconuts. The flavor could best be described as a Mounds candy bar in liquid form. I tasted coconuts, chocolate, with some coffee notes as well. The finish was rather sweet. Overall a nice beer.

The only thing better than an above-average porter is one that comes in a can. I couldn’t really taste the coconut, but it was definitely a sweet and flavorful porter. Very easy to drink and delicious.

[1395-20080530] Can. Thick toasted malt aroma with a bit of booze and coconut. Dark brown black body with a quick foamy tan head. Coconut malt continues in the flavour with a bit of a burnt background. Full body. Great unique ingredient idea!

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2008 Nice dark poor w/ a rich tan head that doesn’t stick around, unfortunately. Slightly fizzy, creamy mouth feel; sticky on the finish. The coconut flavor doesn’t come at you head on. You detect it more than taste it which adds a nice complexity to the rich toasted chocolate of the porter. The coconut is most prominent in the finish leaving that signature clean nuttiness.

This was a bonus from WeeHeavySD, thanks a bunch Jon! Pretty tasty brew, but not quite what I expected. I didn’t really notice anything to do with coconut in it at all. No aroma, flavor..anything. Then again, it’s not a bad thing because this is an exceptional porter. Great smooth flavor with a very clean palate. Very small amount of bitterness to round it out.
