3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very deep roasted malt and barley flavors. Coffee. Bit of coconut…not sure if I detect that or not, actually. A bit of bitterness/sourness. Not bad. Could be creamier.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Can. Dark brown with tan head. The toasted coconut is there, but not overdone, lots of chocolate, a nice bitter roasted malt and hints of coffee beans. A sweet milk chocolate finish with a slight bitterness. Smooth and soft with a lot of body for a porter.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can(very kindly donated by Joss!!!): Dark chestnut-brown coloured, loose and relatively stable mid-sized brownish head, that slowly diminishes, rich and complex nose of coconuts, dark chocolate, roasted malt and vanilla with a dryish bitterness in the background; moderate bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied with a creamy MF; lingering bitter-sweet finish of chocolate and coconut. Wow, great stuff and a perfect and completely unexpected blend of coconut flavours with beer…

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reviewed from notes verbatim on 10/5/10
A: Dark brown beer with near excellent clarity. I think this can was over-carbed. had to pause four times to get into glass. Head is a whipped tan several finger which tried to never go away.
S: Toasted chocolate and coconut. Unique. sweet, cocoa, herbal. Sweet and nice.
T: Less coconut than anticipated. Okay, chocolatey. Finish is dry with coffee tones. Finish resonates for quite some time.
M: Over carbed. Makes beer feel quite light (because it’s all foam). Dry finish.
D: I’ve had this before and the beer was much better, too bad I’m reviewing based on this one. Will revisit later and edit.
Serving type: can

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewery, served in a shaker. Pours deep chestnut with a small head that fades quickly to a few bubbles. On the nose, there are notes of coffee, roasted malts and toasted coconut, along with a hint of smoke and grassy-earthy hops. The flavour is medium-dry up front with roasted malts, coffee and a hint of toasted coconut. As it develops, the coconut really comes to the fore, with a nice toasty character. The finish is long and roasty, quite appropriate for a porter, but with the addition of delicate coconut notes. On the palate it is medium in body with a dryish texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a decent brew. The coconut works surprisingly well. 2013-08-04
