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 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....
