3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Devilcraft bar’s Maui brewing event, Tokyo.
Coconut flavors not as strong as in the normal porter thankfully. Use of cocoa nibs is evident,as the cocoa/chocolate flavor melds well with the coconut. Slight whisky/bourbon element from the higher alcohol but all in all a nice beer.
A few points down as it’s still thin bodied. What is it with Maui brewpub beers? All tasting thin bodied.

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....
