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.

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.

At the brewpub in lahaina. Black with a thin light brown ring. Lots of spotty lacing. Nose is milk chocolate, coconut, malt, coffee, and brown sugar. Taste is very intense. A lot more coconut. Some coffee, chocolate, malt, and earthy hop bite. Just an onslaught of coconut. Slightly sweet and full bodied. 9.4 ABV and a solid beer.

Pours with a creamy light-brown head, with excellent lacing. Muddy black body. Aromas of roasted earth and heavy/smoky charcoal. Definite oily texture. Tastes like coffee that’s been filtered through igneous lava rock.

On tap at the brewpub. Just when I thought Maui Brewing’s coconut porter couldn’t be any better... Wow, this is just excellent. Full of fresh coconut flavor and milk chocolate. Thick, creamy body that’s cut thinner with the extra alcohol (which by the way was list at 9 . something % at the brewery). Finishes with more coconut, cocoa and chocolate. An awesome dessert beer, very unique and well done.

Draft pour at the Toronado Seattle opening. Pours super dark with a mega coconut aroma. Similar to the original, but much richer, and more coconut in my opinion. Coffee and coconut sweet finish. Think I like the original one better. Not a quick, easy drinking beer, but good overall.

Pour from a can is black with a thick creamy dark tan head. Aromas of roasted malts and chocolate with a hint of coconut. Taste is chocolate, roasted malts, hint of coconut, and lightly sweet. Creamy mouthfeel with perfect carbonation. Nice beer.

Opaque brown with khaki head. Aroma of dark malts, cocoa and toasted almonds. Smooth, almost creamy mouthfeel. Smooth, slightly bitter, with a dry finish. Coconut is a bit subtle.
