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.

Similar to their Imperial Coconut but less sweet with less coconut flavor. More sessionable.

AWISLguy (1827) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 31, 2015
12oz can from Coral Bay in Greeley. Dark brown pour. Sweet caramel nose with marshmallow. Taste brings more molasses, and then eventually the coconut shows through and smooths it out even more. Solid porter. 14.3

northropfrye (2812) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 30, 2015
Can from Steinbach LC. Dark body, brown head, nice lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, dried fruit, grains. Taste is semi-sweet, cocoa, chocolate milk, but I hardly get the coconut in this. Frothy coating palate. Quite nice.

piscator34 (2152) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 28, 2015
Can. Near black in colour with moderate carbonation. Aromas are of milk chocolate, pale malt, and a bit of light roast coffee. Mostly chocolate and toasted malt flavors, but with some coconut water and a bit of red berry on the back end. Heavier in the mouth than expected. A solid porter, with a nice subtle addition of coconut.

ljthiessen (750) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 25, 2015
Can. Dark brown, nearly black pour with a dark tan head. Roasty malt and chocolate notes, creamy with some tasty but subtle coconut. A nice spin on an already tasty porter. Maybe a touch overcarbonated.

Wonderful, smooth porter with slight coconut finish. Would prefer a more prominent coconut flavour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ENG: 355ml can from Liquor Mart in Winnipeg, poured into the tulip. Brown to black, opaque but clean color with red highlights, nice medium, brown head. Fantastic aromas of vanilla, cocoa, dark chocolate, coffee. Very complex and deep. Taste of cocoa mostly, but also roasted coffee, coconut is a bit delicate. Aftertaste reminds me of powdered dark chocolate, this kind of tarty. Very nice! There is a bit of carbonation, which I like, it’s very delicate, but give some fullness to this porter. Full bodied. Overall I really love this beer! It’s tasty, smells amazing, palate is complex and interesting. It was a pleasure!

PL: Puszka 355ml kupiona w Liquor Mart w Winnipeg, przelana do tulipa. Barwa brunatna do czarnej, nieprzejrzysta ale klarowna, czerwonawe przebłyski, piana ładna, brązowa, średnia. Fantastyczne aromaty wanilii, kakao, ciemnej, gorzkiej czekolady. Bardzo głębokie. W smaku głównie kakao, ale także palona kawa, kokos też jest ale nieco delikatny. Posmak przypomina mi smak startej, gorzkiej czekolady, taki nieco cierpki. Bardzo fajny! Jest tu nieco nasycenia, co bardzo mi się podoba, jest delikatne, nadaje temu porterowi jakby więcej pełni. Odczucie w ustach dość pełne. Podsumowując naprawdę genialne piwo! Jest smaczne, pachnie znakomicie, paleta smaków jest rozbudowana i bardzo interesująca. To była czysta przyjemność!

SanfordBrewer (1411) - Sanford, Florida, USA - JUL 1, 2015
Opaque black with thin but dense tan head. Medium full body with aggressively high carbonation.

Aroma: dark chocolae, carob, soy sauce, silage, black malt.

Taste: lots of dark malt, charred grain, chalky water, herbal hops. Very balanced.

No notable coconut character. Not a porter, a foreign extra stout or British imperial stout.
