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.

Can. Black pour with a big foamy tan head. Nose packs a punch...alcohol, coffee, smoke, and, of course, coconut. The flavor is more mellow with similar characteristics, leading to a finish that's a bit thin and sour. Doesn't end great, but that doesn't ruin a good beer.

On tap at the Brewpub. Poured a foamy tan head fully diminishing to little lace. Moderate roasty aromas. Initial flavor is light sweet w/ a moderate bitter finish of short duration. Tastes are heavy roasted malts, lightly toasted coconut, dark chocolate, bittersweet chocolate, and vanilla. Full bodied, creamy mouthfeel, and light carbonation.

Roasty and sweet like a good porter but I’m not finding any coconut flavor. Creamy mouth. Feel.

On tap at Chuck’s 85 St. Dark colored, not much head and somewhat cloudy. A little lace lingers with each sip. Aroma of coffee and espresso with a bit of smoky coconut. Sweet tasting, with bread and a tad bit of sourness. Very light for a porter. Not much carbonation and a fairly short finish.

Pour is a black with a rather large tan head for a porter. Aroma is a decent roasty malt with some cocoa power. Flavor is a thick heavy mouth feel with some silky chocolate and chewy roasted malt. A bit of coconut comes after the swallow along with a nice sweet oily malt. This is a great porter just kinda disappointed that there was not much coconut to this.

12oz can pours dark brown black with 2 finger white head. Nose is some light malty cocoa, not much detectable coconut, touch of chocolatey spice. Taste is a little thin but smooth, moderate roast cocoa bean and light milky coffee, again very little coconut is present. Finish is lightly bitter chocolate, coffee bean, cream, cocoa.
