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.

This is the first beer I’ve had out of a can in probably over 20 years. It is also probably the best beer I’ve ever had out of a can. Nice porter, smooth creamy taste that finshes with coconut and vanilla. A little thin mouthfeel, but really nice overall.

bobaidan (508) - Southington, Connecticut, USA - JUL 9, 2008
I had to search long and hard to find this while on Maui (the brewery was closed), but it was well worth the effort. Poured dark brown with small head. Aroma is much like a mounds candy bar with chocolate and roasted coconut. Mouth feel is thik and full, but not sticky. Flavor is delicous with just enough coconut coming through.

Can from BevMo Mission Valley. Pours a creamy dark brown with a wispy beige head that left good lacing. Nice chocolate and toffee aromas with a hint of coconut. Medium in body with a very creamy and smooth finish.

DYCSoccer17 (3320) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 6, 2008
12 ounce can purchased at BevMo in Vacaville, CA. Aroma has some nice mocha coffee notes as well as some sweet chocolate notes and some roastiness. I don’t really detect any coconut in the nose, but this is pretty quaffable stuff. Mildly hazy mahogany body with a small-medium light tan head that is rather quickly dissipating. Average lacing. Starts a little sweet with a bit of astringecy, A bit of choco and coffee roastiness present in the middle. Finishes a bit oily with a few hints of coconut. A little more metallic and astringency comes out in the finish. This beer is tough to rate. It has some phenomenal notes, but also some other notes (astringency) that I don’t really care for.

Many thanks to Stephanje for this beaut. Can: Pours black and stays that way. Head diminishes but soft carbonation continues. A nice long mouthfeel with this critter. Some nuttyness in the creamy body. Hints of vanilla and toasted chocolate. The coconut lightly enshrouds the malt base in a silky smooth casing that balances the chalky finish. Quite the drinkable porter.

bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - JUL 3, 2008
Can, thanks to JW77! Pours translucent dark brown, nearly black with a massive and lacy tan head. Aroma of chocolate and roasted coconut. Kinda smells like there might be some oatmeal in there as well. Medium light body and medium carbonation. Taste has tons of chocolate, some brown sugar, a little coffee and that toasted coconut. Crisp finish with a touch of smoke.

Thanks, Dave, for the sweet can as an extra. Dark brown pour with small but steady dark tan head. From the pour, it’s clear this is a thinner porter, but that’s not really a bad thing. This is a highly sessional beer, one I’d even venture to say I’d drink on a warm summer day. Wouldn’t say that about most porters. Found the coconut to be remarkably subtle. There in a roasty way on the nose along with some vanilla and dark chocolate. A little coffee. Similar palate, with a little more hops and fruit coming out. Really surprised how much I like this. Big ups for originality.

marcus (6505) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 1, 2008
This dark brown ale poured from a can with a decent tan head and a roasted malt aroma. There is an intense chocolate malt flavor with coffee and coconut undertones. Very drinkable.

Can from Sparky27 - thanks! Darker brown pour with a roasty-chocolatey aroma that features a bit of hops and coconut. Flavor is roasty, sweet, and coffee-ish, a bit of coffee. Nice brew that I wouldn’t mind having on a regular basis.
