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.

A little sweeter and richer than the original coconut porter.... Alcohol a little more noticeable as well... Also a very good beer, but I think I enjoy the original coconut porter more....

(draught at Meddlesome Moth) espresso brown pour with a cream tan head. Nose of dark chocolate, coconut, cream, rich and a bit toasty. Taste of dark chocolate, oily coconut, cream, very rich and super easy to drink. Medium carbonation, body is just right too. Excellent flavor and great linger. Awesome!

On tap at the Draught House in Austin. The beer pours a dark brown to black color with a brown head. The aroma is very strong and is full of sweet, milk chocolate. I also get a little bit of coconut but the chocolate is what stands out. The flavor is more of the same. The chocolate overpowers all of the other flavors. Very sweet overall. The alcohol is well hidden. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A very nice take on the regular Coconut Porter. Definitely one to try if you get a chance.

Real dark. Average tan head. Sweet and sugary chocolate nose. Rich full body. Totally a desert beer. You can taste the coconut a little. The finish is sweet.

Black as night with a long-lasting tan head. The nose is all about the chocolate, milky and luxurious. In the mouth it is thick and rich with toasty tingles and plenty of that milky chocolate. There is a dark bitterness in the dry finish. The carbonation is light and pleasant. The beer is lightly claggy on the lips. There are some woody flavours here too with a cedary aromatic quality.

Draft at the brewpub. Pour is a deep dark brown, small creamy tan head. Rich toasted coconut and milk chocolate, with lightly roasted malt, and dark cocoa powder. Like a good almond joy. Creamy smooth mouth feel. Mmm tasty, glad to have tried it.
