4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Toasty malt aroma coupled with chocolate and coffee notes. Alcohol is also strongly picked up. Brown/Black in color.... much like the oil in my truck. Head is frothy and tan, settling fairly quickly after poured. Taste is a well-balanced bittersweet. As the glass empties, I pick up on the advertised coconut more and more. Proves to be medium-bodied porter with an oily texture. Carbonation is soft. The finish is where this brew really makes its money... The most unique finish I have ever experienced in a porter. Long and bitter with a peculiar "freshness" that is hard to describe. Might be the water they use to brew with over there in Hawaii... don’t know. Never been there. But I like it. This is a top-notch porter that I’ll probably want whenever I see it.

A black body with a small head that laces the glass. Nose has sweet aromas of chokolate, caramel and Bounty chokolate bars.. Taste is mildly sweet with a moderately roasty dry finish. Soft carbonation and light palate. Nice and well made porter but the coconut is fairly subtle.

Una porter difícil de olvidar, su aroma invita a beber pero su sabor y su textura mejoran todavía más las expectativas. Es suave y deja un toque dulce al final del trago dónde aparece tímidamente el coco.

Can. Toasted coconut aroma with notes of roasted malt, chocolate and coffee. Pours deep brown with one finger of light brown head with excellent retention and no lacing. Starts with good toasted coconut flavors with a little bit of roasted malt. Finishes smooth but a little dry with some chocolate but mostly dominated by coffee and roasted malt. Pretty good.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: Dark brown, almost black with a hint of red to it. Huge white/nougat coloured head. N: loads of coconut, milk chocolate, floral, green peppers, almond T: starts off with light coffee, sweet chocolate and coconut finish off with more espresso bitterness and a bit tart. Lots of coconut in the end and again a bit floral. O: It’s quite complex with many different spectre. Although it’s quite "watery", but it’s probably because I havent had a none imperial stout in quite a while. Decent beer even though I prefer lots of more depth to it.

35.5cl can, served in Shaker glass. Dark brown colour with small beige head. Aroma is chocolate, licorice and caramel. The flvaour is the same, I was expecting to find some coconut presence but I don’t think they used much on this one. I wouldn’t have guessed. Nice roasted notes on the palate. Medium body, good carbonation. Despite the coconut issue, It’s still a decent Porter.
