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.

10/29/2009: Maui CoCoNut Porter... Aroma: Rich chocolates; hints of coffee; the coconut pops through; thick Mounds. Appearance: Extremely dark, opaque brown with a small, tan-colored head. Flavor: Toasted coconut and chocolate; roasted malt; Palate: Medium-light; not huge, but very quaffable in large quantities. Overall: Smells and tastes almost just like a Mounds Bar, maybe even Almond Joy...

Can: Dark brown with a thin beige head. Sweet aroma with dark chocolate, sweetness, and light roast. Tastes very smooth and chocolatey. Roast, sweet, nutty, and toasty. Some of this has to be the coconut... comes together absolutely great. Differrent and fun. Thanks Jordan.

jcr (2517) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - NOV 12, 2009
Can. Huge tan pillowy head, slowly diminishing. Deep brown body, approaching black. Pleasant, sweet aroma of cocoa powder, milk chocolate, roasted malt and coconut milk. The flvaor is moderately to heavily sweet, but not cloying, lightly to moderately bitter and lightly acidic. It finishes moderately sweet, moderately bitter and lightly acidic. Medium body, velvety texture turning watery, soft carbonation. This reminds me of a sweet oatmeal stout with its slick texture and sweet backbone. Nice balance of bitterness in the finish. Interesting beer.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - NOV 11, 2009
Can: Pours black with brown head and lacing. Nose of light toasty coconut, chocolate, roast and vanilla. The flavor is nutty, toasty and sweet but balanced with the dark chocolate and heavy body. Very nice and subtle, not too much of that sweet coconut comes through, just the meaty toasted quality.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 11, 2009
Can (in NZ). Plenty of dark chocolate on the nose - pass the Green & Blacks. Plenty of dark chocolate in the flavour as well, the coconut decides to wash over the taste buds later on in the swallow. Wasn’t sure what this would be like, but the chocolate and coconut are very clean on a good porter palate.

beernbourbon (1510) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - NOV 9, 2009
Can. Pour is very dark, effervescent, and dirty brown with a thin light brown head. Aroma is fruity, light chocolate, lightly malty, lightly sweet, and only a faint coconut aroma. Flavor is dark chocolate, sweet malt, distant coffee, and a very light toasted coconut flavor in the finish. Fairly light body, lots of bubbles, and less coconut than I was hoping for. However the flavor did greatly improve as the beer warmed. It got rounder, smoother, and the body got a little fuller. I had been waiting for this one for a long time. It did not disappoint me, but I was hoping for more coconut character.

ditmier (1508) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 6, 2009
2009 Can - Pours thin and dk brown with a massive tan head...aroma is just like almond joy, more cocoa than anything, with hints of the coconut hidden behing it, sweet malt and dark fruit...flavour is nowhere near as sweet as your lead to belive, dry roast, bitter cocoa, light coconut...turns a bit watery on the end with a lingering chocolate finish...decent....

Tmoney99 (13163) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 5, 2009
Can shared by alexsdad06. Poured clear dark brown color with a large frothy light brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate toasted chocolate malt and coconut aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy coconut sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Good complex brew that met my expectations.

popery (1879) - San Francisco, California, USA - NOV 4, 2009
A very nice, sweet, mildly roasty porter. This beer pours a very dark brown, essentially motor oil black, with a tan head. The aroma shows off some great coconut notes that blend in surprisingly well. The malt is sweet with some good roast and works extremely well with the coconut. The beer isn’t really incredible, but it’s a lot better than I was expecting from a coconut porter, particularly the coconut part. Very nice porter, good coconut flavor.

pivo (2657) - GERMANY - OCT 31, 2009
You wouldn’t expect a beer out of a can to be so good. Lots of character. Low clingy head and a dark brown color. Smokey roasted nose. Chocolate notes after a thin, sweet malt body. Interesting overall and well balanced.
