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.

Can. Dark brown pour with a small light brown head. Aroma is chocolate / cocoa, light roasted malt, and cream. Pretty soft palate, mostly sweet from the cocoa and creme, but the roast slightly offsets that sweetness. One of the better porters I have had.

TURDFERGUSON (3961) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 1, 2008
Can courtesy of hophead22. Thanks Tim! Pours a well-carbonated dark brown with a small tan head. Nose of cocoa, roast, coconut, cream. Flavor is light roast, more chocolate, a bit coconut, not much hops. NIce beer overall that I quite enjoyed.

Smells like chocolate milk, coconut, more chocolate. Yummy aroma. Some coffee... Pours with a bubbly off- brown head. Very faintly tan and quickly dissipating to a slight ring around the beer. Taste is fizzy, slightly overcarbonated, which hurts the mouthfeel, some slickness. More chocolate milk, some coconut, some astringency from the grains. I really only get a little residual bitterness from the hops. They don’t make their presence known at all in the taste. A little bit of roasted quality in taste and aroma as it warms. This is solid. Thanks Sparky27 (Eric)!

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 30, 2008
Can sampled at RBSG 08. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Roasty and coconut nose. Lighter side of medium bodied with thin texture, perhaps a tad over carbonated. Flavor of carmamel, grains, coconut, and milk chocolate. Good but needs "more" of everything to be great.

ogglethorp (917) - Ohio, USA - AUG 28, 2008
Can, thanks to rogueone! Pours dark brown with a soapy tan head. Aroma is chocolate, light roast, light coconut. Flavor is much the same. Palate is medium bodied, medium carbonation, finished sweet. Nice brew, great to watch the coconut flavor blow up as this warmed.

glkaiser (1214) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 26, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 21, 2010 Black with big brown head. Aroma of sweet chocolate and almond joys. For the most part, I absolutely love the flavors in this. More almond joy with toasted coconut, a bit of chocolate and good roast. Big fan of this style, and this is a great effort.

Darker colored. Aroma is rich coffee and roast, some chocolate and caramel. Hints of coconut? Sure why not. Medium bodied, a nice porter.

12 oz. can in trade Snojerk321-thanks!!! Served in pint glass- poured non transparent black when held to a light source, low clumpy carbonation, bubbly off tan head went away a little too quick with little lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, with notes of molasses and roasted coconuts in the background. Hits the mouth with a wide body, malt was toasted until black but not burned just from feel, a hint of sweetness in the middle with cream underneath, finish punches you in the knee if you think you don’t want to have another snort. Note to self- don’t visit Hawaii- will stay at the bar the entire time drinking this.

Dense brown hue, thick layer of tan shaving cream-like head, minimal lacing. Smell is coffee and dark chocolate malts, roast and bready malts, light hint of earthy hops and booze. Taste is mostly roasted malts with a good dose of dark chocolate and coffee, earthy hops, a hint of actual coconut lingers on the edges of the palate especially during the bitter finish. Palate is thin-bodied, watery smooth texture, carbonation is pretty high and prickly here. Overall, a unique porter with tones of coconut that accentuate the malt profile without being too overwhelming, very exciting but I wouldn’t drink a whole lot of this at a time, strangely the alcohol seems stronger than it should be at 5.5%.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 12, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2009 Pours pitch black with only a hint of mahogany around the edges when held up to the light. The two-finger off-white head dissipates fairly quickly and leaves decent lacing. Big sweet toasted coconut aroma with roasted coffee in the background. There is also a big sweet malt background. Taste is huge on the toasted cocunuts - so sweet and so tasty. There is also a bit of coffee and dark chocolate on a sweet malt base. Mouthfeel is silky smooth with strong carbonation that tickles the tongue. This porter is absurdly drinkable. I wouldn’t trust myself if I had a lot of this in the fridge. Sweet, but not overpoweringly so, this is a fantastic porter.
