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.

12 ounce can courtesy of Lt. Dan, thanks much. Tastes of chocolate and dark malt. The coconut was not as prominent as I was hoping. However, I think the beer may have froze in transit. If so, not sure what affect it would had on the taste. Overall, a very drinkable beer. I would like to revisit this in the summer months.

HuskerTan (489) - Holdrege, Nebraska, USA - AUG 13, 2014
Can. A- Fudge, cocoa, mocha, subtle coconut, slightly sweet, roasted. A- Black color, black liquid, tan frothy head. T- Fudge, cocoa, chocolate, subtle espresso, coconut, toasty. P- Medium body, average texture, high carbonation, roasty finish. O- Not as good as I was hoping for but still good. The coconut was pretty darn subtle and I think it’d have been a lot better if it was more forward. Overall, it was more of a malty, roasty, fudge taste and aroma. Again, not bad but not what I wanted. The only thing I wasn’t a fan of was the high carbonation. That was quite unexpected.

Delicious chocolatey flavor and a nice beautiful black pour with a thin brown head. Aroma is a nice dark hops and roasty malts. Aftertaste is great and chocolatey.

12 oz can. From can on the beach. Aromas of coffee and coconut. Flavors of roasted malts, coconut and coffee. An easy drinking beer with some character for a hot Hawaiian beach.

Dark brown with dark tan head. Chocolate malt aroma. Malty sweet with coconut and chocolate notes. Slightly sweet finish. As it warms up and you get into the beer the coconut comes through more. Nice porter,

One of my favorite beer of all time. Really nice coffee, chocolate, and caramel flavors. Finishes with a somewhat sweet touch of coconut but not over the top sweetness. Really nice by can but tremendous by tap in Maui.

The aroma is typical of most of the porters that I’ve had; there is nothing extraordinary here. I expected the aroma of toasted coconut and was unfortunately disappointed. The appearance is black with a slight head. The taste is smooth and extremely drinkable. The palate is slightly sweet with an equally bitter underpinning. It is quite fully bodied, creamy, moderately carbonated with an even finish. Overall, I was say that this is an extremely drinkable beer.

Can from Petaluma Market. Jet black appearance, off white fluffy head. Aroma is burnt chocolate and coffee with a touch of coconut. Taste is bitter chocolate with a pretty minimal coconut. Slightly metallic but there is some coconut there. Decent enough.

Pours black with a tan head. Roasted malt and toasted coconut aroma. Flavor is sweet roasted malt with chocolate and coffee notes and slight coconut flavor. Hoppy finish.
