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....

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
