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.

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!

ZazuH (42) - Brentwood, California, USA - AUG 5, 2008
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.

auerbrau (3177) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - AUG 2, 2008
Can. Noses in gentle chocolate roast, sweet almonds, and a bit of orange candy. Pours a silky mud brown, with a frothy cream in tan above. Flavor throws a dense macroon, sweet brown sugar, and a bit of caramel. Pretty mild flavor. Nice, but mellow, which is appreciated. Enjoyable. A touch thin and warm, but decent.

12 oz. can - thanks to my sister for dragging this back to the mainland; ah, the long awaited coconut porter; pours dark brown with thin, off-white head; aromas are rich and sweet; mainly roasted coconuts, chocolate; drinks on the sweet side with a fruity, dry finish; roasted malts, chocolate are very muted in the flavors as the sweetness dominates; texture is a little on the thin side; very nice overall, but i find myself missing that porter roastiness a little bit

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2008 Poured dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, subtle coconut. The coconut would be pretty easy to miss in a blind tasting. Taste is similar, with vanilla coming in as well. Finish is lightly bitter and the mouth is creamy. A very nice porter, and a beer I would drink often if it were available.

12oz. can, with thanks to AgentSteve for yet another excellent bonus! Pours dark brown with a nice foamy tan head that lingers, minimal lacing. Aroma is roasty, with some milk chocolate and light coconut. Flavor is more of the same, with the coconut presence coming out a bit more along with the roasted malts and chocolate; silky on the palate. A nice, easy drinking porter, thanks again Steve!
