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.

12 ounce can from BevMo ($10.99 for 4-pack). Pours mostly black with big thick tan head. Aroma of chocolate fudge and cocoa powder, toasted coconut (yes, itís there), and roasted malt tones. The flavor has more of that rich chocolate fudge, some coffee, and slightly burnt malt notes. Lightly sweet, but I did not get much coconut in the flavor which is unfortunate as I really like coconut. Feels on the light side -- I think there is room here for them to ramp up the ABV and make the thing heavier. And put more coconut in!

Aroma is of coconut with a hint of molasses and chocolate. Dark brown in color with a tan head. Seems to be more carbonated and thinner than most other porters. Tastes of dark chocolate, coffee and a bit of coconut. A little bit of an alcohol start with a slightly hoppy finish. More bitter than I expected.

12oz can from mom and dadís trip to Maui. 1-inch tan head diminishes quickly with no lacing. Not black, maybe burnt toast colored. Roasty, toasty mild alcohol notes on the nose. Slightly sweet, toasted coconut up front and then chocolate malts. A nice, slight bitter coconutty finish leaves you wanting more. Coconut comes to the front as the beer warms up, never overpowering though. Creamy mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Alcohol present in the aroma, but none in the taste. Another great beer from Maui. Big thanks to my parents for the hookup.

I did this beer the disfavor of drinking it from a plastic cup. Pours black with a tan head. Nose is chocolate and coconut. Taste is roasted malts, and again the sweet coconut comes through very nicely. Very drinkable and smooth. Excellent execution of a unique idea.

12 oz. Can: Pours a coffee black with a frothy tan head that leaves nice lacing. Has small hints of coconut in the aroma and chocolate flavor. Texture is creamy with a mild dry finish. Delicious!

Pours from 12 oz can a dark cola brown with thick, foamy head. The nose is cocoa, roasted malt, and just a hint of coconut. The flavour is toasted malt up front with a touch of chocolate. There is the slightest touch of coconut in the finish, which is also quite dry. Definitely had that Mounds candy character going on, great porter.

Compliments of That Pineapple Pickiní Elf Celticbrew! Enjoyed with the original Reindeer Tamer DrBayern, Herbieís replacement Uncle Tom, The Abomnible Beer Pimp Brian, and the two misfit newbies, Lawyer Bob and The Boy Wonder Chris. Mele Kalikimaka. The aroma is that of the toasted Coconut. I personally am not a Cocoanut fan, but this was appealing. Poured a dark brown color, and allowed some light through. The dark head disipated to the edges. Has a nice choco-coconut taste. Nice mouth feel.

Burnt black, red hues. Aroma that gives up woody notes and a little soapy waft. This is great in the mouth. Without knowing it was coconut I would have said it was wonderful anyway but the additions just lift it without making it staid or sickly. Could almost be a sweet stout, dark chocolate and the lovely roasted malt notes shine. I think the can helps too.

Traded can. I liked this porter (dark, bitter, spicey...) but honestly could not pick up on the coconut much...just a faint hint in the aroma and flavour. Guess Iíll have to go back to Hawaii and try it fresh! Just my luck.

UPDATED: DEC 22, 2009 Can. Pour was dark brown with a very fizzy body. Aroma was of roasted malt and sweetness. Flavor was mostly roasted with some burntness and chocolate. I tried as hard as I could to get some coconut but was unable to find the taste. It could have been an old beer, so I will have to try another. Otherwise, great porter. Re rate. I tried this brew from a different six pack and was pleasantly surprised to find a great deal more coconut flavor. The blend was quite nice with the already fine porter beer. Iíve been told that the freshest beers have the most coconut flavor and aroma and I would love to try one of those. Otherwise, find this beer fresh and enjoy it while the flavor lasts.
