3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. can purchased at One Stop Market. Dumped this into a shaker glass, deep brown color without much head. Aroma is light roast, weak chocolate, and a weak hint of coconut.
Flavor is pretty much what is expected. Roasted malt backbone with faded coffee, chocolate, and a moderate amount of bitterness. The coconut is subtle and not forward at all. Lighter in body with a softer carbonation level. In the past year I have had a two WAY bolder coconut brews. (Hodad and Death By Coconut). This is about normal for what it is. Worth a try.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
355 ml can, canned 06/19/15, from BeerLovers, Vienna.
Dark brown body, with a big, fluffy, moderately lacing, dark beige head.
Aroma of coconut, chocolate, cocoa, vanilla, dark fruits.
Tastes of chocolate, dark and dried fruits, coconut, some coffee, slight liquorice.
Medium, slick mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes medium roasty-bitter, quite dry, with dark chocolate, coffee, some coconut, slight wood.
Very nice. Lovely, sweet nose, with full coconut and chocolate notes. Taste is slightly too light bodied for my taste, while also really nice. Finishes dry, with almost no sweetness, so that it is quite easy. Overall a quaffable Porter, with some uniqueness.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Decent can. Deep, ruby-black, clear brew with an immense mocha ice cream head. Aroma grew on me - roasted, toasty cocoa/coconut. Lightish body, goes flat. Some clingy artificial/chemical notes in there. Just a little creosote. Not too bitter. Bittersweet cocoa on the backend, and light roast. Serviceable, but I didn’t love. ABC Liquors, Betton.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz can compliments of Zizzybalubba (thanks buddy). Black hue, zero visibility with 2 finger thick frothy light khaki head. Excellent lacing. Light chocolate malt aroma, nutty with a hint of vanilla. I did not detect any coconut in the aroma. Creamy chocolate malt taste up front with more of a nutty light finish. I detected a little coconut on the finish after it warmed a bit. This was a really enjoyable beer.

Can. Pretty standard looking porter. Taste was pretty good though I could not detect any coconut which was a bit disappointing. Lots of chocolate and toasted malts and a bit of a nutty flavor.
