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.

Pours cola brown with a thin tan head. Nose is great, hefty with cocoa, nice toasted coconut, vanilla, and marshmallow. Taste is slightly high carbonated, a little thin, fairly astringent with black patent malt, coconut is light, nothing special, actually pretty thin, charred, and lacks the flavors promised on the can.

UPDATED: APR 4, 2012 Can; had this beer numeorus times while in Maui. Enjoyed enjoyed it. Full bodied, coconut aroma and taste, hilighted by subtle chocolate and coffee. I would recommend this beer. UPDATE DEC.1/10 - Once again, as good as I remember. I tried it in a can and on tap; i would say the flavors are a little more subdued in a can vs. the draft. Good notes of dark chocolate and espresso .. love the coconut . UPDATE MARCH 31/12 - Tried again on tap, very nice ... good cocoa notes with the finish of coconut. Just as good as I remembered

Sledutah (7013) - Utah, USA - DEC 7, 2009
12oz can:
Appearance: Pours a dark brown, almost black, with a nice dark tan head and some lacing left in the glass
Aroma: Roasted malts, coffee, chocolate and I do smell some coconut
Taste: Creamy mouthfeel with roasted malts, chocolate and a hint of coconut flavor
This is a nice porter, the coconut gives it some complexity over a standard porter.

TreborWhip (393) - Reading, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 3, 2009
12oz can, thanks to fata2683, poured into a trappist glass produced a medium tan head with dark brown, almost black, body. Aroma of coffee and toasted coconut. Taste was dominated by roasted coffee, molasses, and toasted coconut which became more intense as the ale warmed in the glass. Not overly sweet and very enjoyable.

phaleslu (9376) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 1, 2009
12 oz. can from South Bay Drugs. Pours dark hazy brown with a very small beige head. Aroma of coconut and vanilla extracts, roasted malt, and toast. Flavor of roast, toast, caramel, and another odd coconut-vanilla strain that Shawn said was like Malibu. Smooth, with a medium body and syrupy mouthfeel. This is good, but the odd artificiality I’m getting in the nose and mouth keep it from being special.

IrishMany31 (1) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - NOV 27, 2009 does not count
Aroma is toasty with lots of coconut, hints of chocolate and coffee. Appearance is dark with a slight white head. Taste is very unique and surprisingly enjoyable, with heavy chocolate and coconut tastes coming through in the end. The palate is smooth. Overall very unique and enjoyable

altonbrownd (5627) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - NOV 25, 2009
Can from Hi-Time. Dark brown with nice head. Toasty nose with lots of coconut. Really surprisingly nice. Taste is malty, toasty, not too strong. Than chocolate and coconut kick in at the end. Well done with kudos for microcanning explanation.

madmitch76 (22055) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2009
5th July 2008. Richer and thicker than most porters. The coconut is a light touch on the palate. Some toasted malt but also slighty creamy. No bitterness at all.

10/29/2009: Maui CoCoNut Porter... Aroma: Rich chocolates; hints of coffee; the coconut pops through; thick Mounds. Appearance: Extremely dark, opaque brown with a small, tan-colored head. Flavor: Toasted coconut and chocolate; roasted malt; Palate: Medium-light; not huge, but very quaffable in large quantities. Overall: Smells and tastes almost just like a Mounds Bar, maybe even Almond Joy...

12 fl. oz. can ( 5.7% ABV) shared by alexsdad06. Thanks Brad! Rating #340 for this beer.
