COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Imperial Coconut Porter is a stronger version of 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. TCHO cocoa nibs were blended with the toasted coconut during the maturation process to intensify the aroma of coconut and dark chocolate.

On tap @ Chuck’s 85th. Listed at 9.4% here. Pours dark cola brown with a thin white head that fades quickly. Aroma is rich milk chocolatey dark malt with a light toasted coconut note on the back. Taste is similar - big, thick, rich milk chocolate malt with a great full mouthfeel. Coconut is present but lighter than the aroma, just as in the non-imperial version of this. Great rich flavor makes this a nice upgrade.

Very dark brown and opaque. Creamy tan foam. Plenty of chocolate and coconut. Flavor is a little bittersweet but the finish smooths out with time.

Coconut aroma. Taste has notes of coffee, dark chocolate and coconut. The coconut isn’t overwhelming.

On tap @ Growler Guys - Portland. Just about black in color with a tan head. Smells kind of like an Almond Joy. Dark chocolate, some toasted coconut, and a mild nuttiness. Good sweetness as well as some bitter coffee and roasted malts. Plenty of chocolate and a nice chewy coconut flavor. A little more body than the regular version.

Somewhere between a 2 and 4oz draft pour at SAVOR 2015’s Saturday night session. This one is very similar to their standard CoCoNut PorTeR. Poured a black-brown color with a medium sized light tan head. Aroma was malty, chocolate, tons of coconuts. Flavor was light shaved coconut, with dark malts, chocolates, coffee notes. Enjoyable, but I’d probably just stick the the more sessionable of the two.

A beautiful brew. Pours a slick, viscous nearly opaque black with a thin tan head. The aroma is rich and robust with tons of coconut and cocoa notes. Light espresso bean and milk chocolate combine well with a light hop. Rich and silkly smooth with a robust, moderately dry finish. A bit astringent and bitter with a lingering alcohol warmth and heavy coconut flavour that goes into the aftertaste. Great brew.

Pour on tap at Mayor of Old Town, thick black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of nice cocoa, roast, and coffee notes with a hint of lactose, some ash into a slight toasted coconut note, slight metal. Taste was a mix of cocoa, slight coconut, toast into some ashy, metallic note, slight roast and coffee, finishing fairly sweet, slightly dry. A slight improvement from the base, but still could be better.

Poured from a can. Small head, but terrific lacing and creaminess. Not a bad aroma, but the taste is terrific. The coconut is there, but subtle, not understated but subtle. Coffee and coconut -- a good combination.
