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.

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 (2651) - 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.

boFNjackson (4198) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 18, 2009
Can... Poured deep, dark brown with a beige head. Roasted, cocoa malt aroma. Rich and malty, a strong mocha/coffee flavor with a sweet, creamy quality. The coconut crept in and highlighted the finish.

playitbybeer (118) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 17, 2009
Out of a can. Smells like coconut body oil and chocolate water. Taste is coconut, chocolate, and hops, I feel like I’m on the beach in hawaii. The consistency is wonderful, very refreshing for a porter. It is 99 degrees where I’m at and as soon as this is gone I’m drinking another one, it is just perfect for a hot day.

12 oz. can, "021109" on bottom. Daknole traded me a couple of Hawaiian brands, but this one actually made in Hawaii gets my first Aloha tick. Pours nearly black under a thick brown head. Smells of milk chocolate and just a whiff of cocoanut. That gives it a nice clean smell, no overly roasted malt. Taste shows some lighter roast malts, slight milk stout character, and a little sourness. I can’t quite pick out cocoanut in the taste; it’s not a favorite of mine, but I think it does add to its milky smoothness. Can carbonation gives it a bit of gassy finish, I’d like to try this on tap if and when I ever to go the islands.

Miksu (5039) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - OCT 5, 2009
0.33 l can at Stockholm Beer Festival 2009. Black color. Sweet mildly roasty aroma with perfumed coconut. Sweet roasty flavor with obvius coconut flavor and hint of charcoal. Grassy coconut lasts long in the finish. Small sample was very tasty, but I not sure I would like to drink this in bigger quantities.

Svesse (7679) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - OCT 4, 2009
(Canned, Stockholm Beer Festival, 19 Sep 2009) Black colour with brief, frothy, beige head. Roasted, malty nose with chocolate, coffee and some coconut and vanilla. Malty, roasted taste with notes of chocolate, coffee, vanilla and some cocoa bitterness in the finish. Medium body, quite dry. Well balanced and smooth, but very tasty and nice.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 3, 2009
03/10/2009. From a can. This beer has a character about it that says it doesn’t take itself too seriously. But it is a seriously good drop. Coconut dominates aroma but integrates nicely in the mouth of this rather mild and clean porter - gives it some real extra spunk. Nice with cheese and onion toasted sandwiches at midnight. Choice bro! All class. Best beer I’ve ever had from a can? maybe it is...

SorenE (168) - , NEW ZEALAND - OCT 1, 2009
coconut dominates the aroma and flavour of this beer. there are other things going on but it is easy to miss. it’s ggod though, a little unpalatable by itself but goes great with cookies or a slice of cake, especially if there’s a bit of coconut in the recipe.
