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.

From a can. Rich fresh coffee aroma. Classic porter appearance, pours black with a large and frothy light brown head. Dark coffee flavour with subtle coconut notes. Medium bodied with some bitterness in the finish. Good stuff.

airrick2003 (564) - Louisiana, USA - JAN 9, 2015
Appearance: pours with a medium darker tan head, the head settles into a small head with OK density, the beer is black with the slightest brown hue on the edges if you hold it up to the light Aroma: chocolate, very slight hint of coconut, some kind of spice is evident too Taste: chocolate, chocolate milk, bitter finish Palate: bitter aftertaste, medium mouthfeel, lively carbonation Overall: a robust porter with lots of Aroma and flavor, strong chocolate throughout, easily drinkable as well ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BeerFunGuy (776) - California, USA - JAN 7, 2015
Ebony color with thick latte colored head. It has coffee aromas with a him of chocolate. The chocolate is the dominating flavor with some smokey malt and coffee flavors. Well balanced and flavorful this beer is certainly a winner.

furthur (275) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - DEC 31, 2014
Can, opaque black body, vigorous pour foamed hugely, but that settled quickly to just a ring. Aroma roasty with dark fruit, nuts, coconut, coffee. Taste is plum and roast barley, cola like, nutty and coffee finish. Overall slightly sweet. Palate is light, carbonation is a bit heavy for style. If I had to sum up, I’d say Porter cola.

Aholmb1 (131) - New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - DEC 24, 2014
Appearance: opaque black color with brown head, really nice head when poured, you can also smell the aroma of the beer when poured, really dense head and nice lacing left on glass, nice dome of head Aroma: chocolate and coffee, very aromatic, sweetness to smell Taste: coffee and chocolate, slight coconut flavor at end Palette: slight bitterness at end, some tannins left on tongue, light to medium body Overall: this is a great porter that is very flavorful ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Normally I’d avoid a beer with coconut added, but this works. Pours black with small tan head and lacing. Tastes of chocolate coffee, s’mores. Robust toasty malt to balance the sweetness. Great with dessert, or as dessert. A delicious favorite.

Clownoisseur (284) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - DEC 14, 2014
Poured from the can, into a pint glass. Appears black, medium tan colored head. Aromas of powdered chocolate mix, roasted nut, faint coconut and a slight spice. Taste is as expected. Notes of chocolate and roast mimic the nose...and the coconut remains light on the palate. Medium-low body on this doesn’t allow the flavors to resonate very long. Finishes rather abrupt for a porter, but provides a final bittering dose of coffee/hops. Solid brew. Interesting take on the style for sure.

solidfunk (4529) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - DEC 2, 2014
Light coconut and some roast here makes for a nice well rounded package. Idea works well here. Pours dark brown/black with decent initial head and lacing. Bitter finish with some caramel and chocolate sweetness. Can.

Cam_Dynamite (55) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 28, 2014
Boring on the nose. Pours like a black wine. Taste is roasted malts, chocolate and toasted coconut. Bit too watery and bland. Nice enough

Lizardking3 (151) - Springfield, Oregon, USA - NOV 26, 2014
Beautiful dark color with tan head. Aroma is malty and toasted coconut. velvet mouthfeel with roasted malts and chocolate, coffee as well. The end is where the coconut settles in. Delicious
