Pours brown-black with a thick tan head. Aroma is rich roasted malts, raisins, dates, coffee and faint mellow coconut. Taste is all of the above with the almost chocolaty malts taking precedence. Nice!

Murky and dark with a good head. Aroma malty and toasty. Nice roasty porter with some coffee. Excellent porter but little coconut character.

Received this as an extra in a recent trade. Served out of the can into a mini pint.
A - Pours pitch black, with hints of dark browns, with a nice creamy one finger tall tan head leaving little to no lacing down the glass.
S - Dark roasted malts blend well with the coconut and some faint sweet chocolate. A bit of booze comes thru as it warms up. Pretty well balanced nose.
T - A pleasant mix of sweet coconut and plenty of dark roasted malt up front, lingering thru the finish, mix well with hints of sweet chocolate, coffee, and some creamy milk. Finish is a bit roasty but it doesn’t linger for long. I really enjoyed this one. The coconut really helped round out the porters rough edges.
M - Heavy body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Decent feel up front getting a bit watery toward the end. Finish is roasty but not to the point of being overpowering.
D - Very high. Damn I really wish I had a few more of these. I really enjoyed this one. The flavors mixed very well together. One of the best dark beers I have had from a can to date.

Bote en el lúpulo en marzo de 2012. color negro intenso con espuma algo oscura. Cuerpo medio con 6 vol fácil de beber y con agradable sabor a coco. Bastante buena, para repetir.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
