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 thanks to ericandersnavy. Pours a dark chocolate brown with a nice head. Smell is roasted coconut flakes, chocolate, and roasted grains in the background. The beerís taste is the same, but hard to find the coconut. The lingering roastiness may throw it off just a bit.

Dark brown to black in color with creamy tan head.... Aroma is roasted malts and dark chocolate....Flavor is rich dark chocolate, malts.... Almost tastes like Youngs Double Chocolate Stout initially... Finish has hints of toasted coconut, donít taste much coffee, predominantly dark chocolate, maybe some spicy hops on the finish, but very malty overall... Great beer, but then again, I love Youngs Double Chocolate stout too...

12oz can. Dark brown pour with a thin tan head. Malty and chocolatey aroma with some roast. Chocolate malt flavor up front, giving way to coconut and a coffee finish. Iím not a fan of coconut, but the amount they use is perfect. Thereís enough so that you know itís there, but it doesnít consume the entire flavor.

Served from the can, very dark, roasty, deep cocoa notes, the coconut is toasted and is not subtle at all. Hops play well in the background hinging with a cocoa bitterness. Creamy feel. Full aroma, nice presentation. This is a shockingly good beer.

Thanks to Kevin for the can! Disclaimer.. I love porter and I greatly dislike coconut. Gushed out of the can a bit, eventually pouring deep brown with a towering, sticky cap of beige head. The aroma was mostly porter.. deeply-roasted bakerís chocolate, coffee, and black patent with toasted coconut and vanilla accents.. the nutty character rose as it warmed, and I was surprised to enjoy that aspect of it. The flavor had a milkier chocolate base with light earthy and coffee bitterness around.. coconut joined on the middle and carried through the finish.. came together very well. Silky-smooth, sweet, and well-balanced on the palate with moderate-to-high carbonation.. dried out on the back-end, leaving toasted nutty notes.. didnít think I would like this so much.

12 oz. can shared, appropriately, at a friendís Aloha Party (big thanks to Donny for sharing this one). Pours dark with virtually no head. Aroma has some coconut present with some coffee and dark chocolate. Rather than the usual roasted malt flavor in a porter it is replaced by sweet coconut; not overpowering but certainly detectable. This is really a wonderful beer.

On tap at the Yard House, Waikiki. Deep, dark brown with a brown head. Coffee and coconut nose, some chocolate. Very tasty - coffee and mild coconut, dark chocolate. The coconut moves toward the fore late. Excellent!

Can from GAManiac. Thanks, Grant! Pours a highly carbonated black, much like a flat Coke. Aroma is dark roasted coffee that soaked in chocolate. Slight touch of dark fruit in there as well. Only a whisper of coconut that, had the label not said it contained coconut, I would be hardpressed to detect. Interesting flavor; heavy chocolate that quickly gives way to a light, creamy coffee with just a touch of coconut. Almost malty in mouthfeel. As it warms, the chocolate becomes more dense but still keeps that quick switch to light coffee. Very enjoyable porter; wish I had more of this!
