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.

Enjoyed at the Maui Brewing Co brewpub. Best Imperial Porter I have had to date. No contest. Aroma is of toasted coconut candy, and burnt chocolate. Taste is rich chocolatey coconut, just like the regular version of this beer... except the body is HUGE and the roasted coconuts, the sweet toasty malt, and dark chocolate flavors linger forever. This brew is INCREDIBLY impressive. I’m loving it. Too bad they don’t bottle....err... can it.

On tap at Urge Gastro Pub RB: Dark-dark brown with a thick dark tan head. Aroma is dark chocolate and vanilla. Flavor starts rich dark chocolate followed by vanilla and a hint of coconut with a light bakers chocolate bitter finish and maybe a hint of anise. Body is thick and creamy like a double dark chocolate milkshake with moderate carbonation.

Keg at North Bar, Leeds. Pours a pitch black with a small, quickly dying head. Aroma is dark chocolate and coconut - a dark chocolate Bounty. Taste is really rich, with toasted coconut up front, then dark chocolate (an inversion from the taste - nice feature). Bourbon, treacle, coffee, malt and a touch of caramel also there. Big full body, but it isnt cloying. Long, long finish, and a very pleasant one, due to the lovely favours. This wins. Brilliant.

Served on tap at the Maui Brewing Brewpub. The appearance is a beautiful midnight black with a micro to small tan head. The aromas ooze with intense toasted coconut, heavy coco and dark chocolate, and a light alcohol dose. The flavors enter with the coconut leading the way. The rich malty profile soon fills the whole mouth with gooey dark chocolate bar notes. The coconut reappears on the finish to bring everything full circle. The mouth is pretty full bodied with a great creamy richness to the feel. An excellent beer, I feel very fortunate to have had the timing to get to try this while I was in Maui.

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.

Draft at elliott bay pizza. Pours black with a dense and creamy tan mousse on top. Lots of dense sheety lace coming down the sides of the glass. Big dark chocolate nose with lots of coffee notes. Thick creamy body, not quite sticky. Coffee, chocolate, coconut on the mid palate with a long dark roasty finish. Fantastic big beer.

From notes, had at obriens for SDBW. Pours thick and black with a big tan head. Nose is of course, CoCoNuT, vanilla, chocolate, cherries, toffee, brown sugar and molasses. Taste is sweet with some good bitterness for such a big beer. Mouthfeel is crisp and clean, finish is long and the body is medium. Thought it would have been heavier, but still great.
