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.

Courtesy of tpd975. Pours deep amber with tan head. The aroma starts with notes of dark maltiness followed by some caramel and then a load of chocolate. No coconut noticed in the nose at all. The taste is full on coconut to go along with some roastiness and malty sweetness. Those notes are followed by chocolate notes and some nuttiness.

Thanks for this brew from kegbear. My first craft beer out of a can. Pours dark brown with light fluffy tan head. Huge amount of coconut and suger on the nose. Aroma also has hints of malt and chocolat. Flavor smooth with malt, chocolate and coconut .Could be really special with some extra hops and little less sweetness as aftertaste is heavy with coconut and vanilla. The one thing I will always remember about this brew is how smooth and silky the mouthfeel is. The low IBU is nice as so many brewers and trying to make huge hopped up porter. Lucky to get my hands on this.

12 oz. can from my Secret Santa! Reddish brown pour with a medium head. Big chocolate aroma with less than assertive coconut notes. Same with the taste, though the chocolate is a little more on the bitter side. A little on the watery side.

Somewhat oily pour with a tropical fruit nose, a definite odor of coconut and chocolate. A beer reminiscent of sun tan lotion. Toasted caramel and chocolate on the palate that finishes with a toasted coco-nuttiness. This is just what it is a very robust porter, not overly complex, but drinkable for one can. I’ve been wanting to try coconuts effect on a dark beer and now I have and I think it works quite well. It’s very interesting and different. Only in Hawaii.

Big thanks to stefanje for this can! This was interesting considering I absolutely hate the taste of coconut, but always wanted to try this beer. Pours a very dark black with small head. Can smell the roasted coconut right from the pour...very enjoyable. Chocolate coconut aromas with coffee in there as well. Flavor is malt, chocolate and lightly coconut on the finish, which surprisingly I really enjoyed! Great mouthfeel...full bodied and lingering. Really liked this beer. Thanks Stefan!

Thanks for the can Derek. Nice deep black color, lots of roasty coco, easy going down. Creamy smooth, the coconut is hard to detect however, but a good brew from the island state.

This porter pours a deep black color from a 12oz can. Small to medium sized, quickly diminishing beige foamy head with nice lacing. The aroma is chocolate and coffee with some coconut. A medium bodied porter. The malts are chocolate and coffee. Touch of burnt/roasted malts. The hops are earthy. The coconut shows up at the finish I guess, it is there but not very prominent. Nice balance porter. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUL 11, 2008
12 oz. can courtesy of DYCSoccer17. Medium brown color, average head formation/retention. Coffee aroma, light hints of coconut, malted milk. Round, roasty malts with very light acidity, slightly more coconut and plenty of chocolate. Very creamy mouthfeel, subdued carbonation. Tends to be very pleasing early in the sip and then develop a rather raw harshness after swallowing. Could be the coconut, I suppose. Overall, nicely done.

Tasted from a can. Has a great toasted coconut aroma. Flavor is lighter in coconut but nice light roasted malts predominate. Could be a little more intense in flavor and more viscous, but, as is, it’s quite drinkable.

Awesome beer. Beautiful toasted coconut/vanilla nose. Dark brown/black body with a 1/2 finger head that mostly dies but leaves a touch of lacing. Lightly roasted malts in the flavor with a great toasted sweetness. Vanilla. Touches of dark fruits. Mostly though, that great vanilla/coconut/toast plays on the tongue in a grand way. Wonderful. Mouthfeel is decadent given the low ABV with an amazing drinkability. Highly recommended. Great, well integrated flavors in one easy to drink, low ABV porter. Thumbs up.
