3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can version brought from Hawaii, thanks Otto. Aroma is roast malt with some English hops, a bit of spicy phenol. Not much coconut in aroma, a bit more as it warms. Less coconut flavor than expected, mostly just a really good porter. Roast and hops play well together. Smooth mouthfeel.

A boozy dark flavoursome malty porter base with a brief brown head. Underlying vanilla sweetness and the toasted coconut coming through creating a slight roasted finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Ottima Porter, bella l’idea di aggiungere il cocco, ben presente sia al naso che al palato, rende la birra fresca e particolare. Una porter morbida e quasi tropicale, interessante.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can. Deep chestnut brown pour, medium off-head with average retention. Nose is nutty, roast, cocoa, yada yada yada (it’s a fuckin porter, man... whaddaya think the nose is gonna be like?) Mouth is medium bodied, cocoa, mildly sweet, chewy malt and roast, no detectable coconut. Average at best. Aloha means I’m buzzed and bored. Where’s Gidget at?

Can from K&L in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is toasted coconut, roasted malts. Taste is light roasty malts, good carbonation. Very thin and watery. Not as tangy as I had hoped for. Will try again NEAR THA BEACH. REALISTIC.
