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.

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.

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. Im 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.

UPDATED: MAY 19, 2008 Didnt think Id like this one at all, but it kind of surprised me. It poured very dark with a tan head. Aromas were pretty bold, mostly coconut and roast. Body was pretty nice -- not too thin and not too thick. Malts were very toasty and sweet. Coconut aromas really gave the beer a bit of depth. Im not a big coconut fan, either, and I actually enjoyed that unique addition. Lesser notes of sweet vanilla and dark chocolate followed. Pleasant and enjoyable porter. Only complaint was that it was a tad too sweet for my buds.

I had this beer on tap at the brewery while I was on vacation there. I love porters, but I have to admit that I was a little disappointed when I had this beer. It is possible that I built the beer up too much in my mind because it won gold at the 2006 World Beer Cup. It pours very dark with slight ruby color at the edge. The aroma is farily light with hop and roasted hints. As a robust porter, it isnt bad but the coconut isnt as strong as I would have hoped. It doesnt really make itself evident until the back end of the flavor when I can taste some burnt coconut. Overall it is pretty balanced.

Can. Brown with beige head. Aroma of coffee, sweet coconut. Roasty, toasty, malty coconut, coffee flavor. Some hops on the finish. Quite sweet but it works. Good body, smooth texture.
