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.

12oz <i>Canned 07/02/08</i>, and purchased @ the <i>Bev Mo!</i> in Sacramento. <i>marchcow</i> also gave me a sample last year at one of my tastings, though the rating that follows isn’t that. Clear deep brown with a one finger beige head, fading to a ring. Roasty chocolate malts up front with some sweet caramel and coconut to balance it out. The flavor adds more of the coconut/vanilla aspect that coconut has, without coming across as artificial. Finish is semi-dry with minimal ash, bitterness peaking around a 3. Low to moderate carbonation with medium body. The idea of a coconut porter sounds great in theory, and in Maui’s case, it worked great in practice. I’ve had a few coconut beers and they never seem to be able to get any coconut into the aroma or flavor, but succeeds very well.

sthlm (1233) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 19, 2008
[Can, thanks Guerde!] Pours dark cola-brown with a small light brown head. Aroma is quite sweet, really big on milk chocolate with a fair amount of coconut and some notes of hazelnut. Very nice. Taste is also fairly sweet up front, then the milk chocolate and some toasted malt blend together perfectly with the coconut. Medium mouthfeel with a long finish of toasted malt and coconut. Medium mouthfeel with a long finish. An outstanding porter.

Guerde (1182) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - SEP 19, 2008
(can, generously bonused by Sparky27, thanks Eric!) Pours black with brown around the edges and a tan head. Aroma is initially of a Mounds bar or dried shredded coconut. The coconut loses its intensity as the beer warms, and it becomes more chocolatey with some roasted malt, dark roasted coffee, and a hint of smoke. Taste is semi-sweet and full of dark chocolate up front, but soon changes to roasted malt with a light hint of coconut and a good amount of hoppy bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium and very smooth.

dalekliz (882) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 13, 2008
Can, thanks to WeeHeavySD. Pours a deep black with a small tan head. Aroma is nicely sweet, of both toasted and fresh coconut, as well as malt. The coconut taste hits immediately, before more bitter malt and burnt flavors kick in. Lingering coconut and malt taste. Very different, but it works quite well.

StFun (567) - Indiana, USA - SEP 12, 2008
Just got this one today via Sparky and had to give it a try. I liked this one a lot. Not quite as stong as I had hoped, but very good nonetheless. Porter is very smooth, with a velvet mouthfeel. Aroma is a nice shot of chocolate, with a little coffee and coconut thrown in. Flavor is much the same, with notes of nuts and malt. Everything is balanced nicely. I loved the addition of the coconut, just wish it was stronger. A damn fine beer...thanks Eric!!

sirpsycho (393) - Murrysville, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 11, 2008
Can, via trade with Hophead22. Pours a very dark brown, foamy tan head that dissapates fairly quickly. Aroma is faint notes of cocoa and malt, no coconut yet. Flavor is sweet, cocoa, roast and on the end more of a burnt coffee flavor to it, coconut is barely noticed because of it. Flavor lingers on the tongue for awhile.

Ungstrup (29837) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 9, 2008
Can. A brown beer with a thin brown head. The aroma is sweet with notes of roasted malt and coconut, as well as lighter notes of alcohol. The flavor is sweet malty with extreme strong notes of coconut as well as lighter notes of roasted malt, leading to a dry finish with notes of cocoa and coconuts. A very interesting combination.

brokephibroke (293) - Mead, Colorado, USA - SEP 8, 2008
Deep opague brown pour with a tan, creamy smallish head. Aroma of molasses, chocolate, malt and CoCoNut. Sweet up front with malty chocolate followed by the toasted CoCoNut. Dark chocolate lingers. Palate is kind of weak, but overall a very tasty island treat! Drank several cans over the last week or so and a couple drafts, this was the best beer I found in Hawaii.
