Good but I was a little underwhelmed. It had a roasted aroma with some sweetness to it. Almost like a milk stout. Dark color with a nice foamy head. The flavors were roasted malt and a mildly unique nut flavor, which I assume was the coconut. It added something different just not necessarily improved it. Lighter mouthfeel than expected with mild carbonation. I bet this would be pretty good on tap. No significant hops presence, but that’s not a negative. Above average porter.

Can poured at home. Dark pour with a brown cloudy head. Aroma is mostly chocolate. Very smooth taste with roasted caramel and chocolate. Not getting a whole lot of coconut, but I can tell it’s there. Very easy drinking, delicious porter.

(can, many thanks to jonas!) pours a hazy deep brown colour with a frothy brown head. aroma of espresso, vanilla and rose water, with a hint of brown sugar, lots of toasted malts, some floral hops and sugar icing. flavour is mostly the same, cold coffee, milk chocolate and brown sugar, with more vanilla, some light earth and a semi-dry finish. medium-bodied with lively carbonation.
