Can at North Bar Leeds; black brown with a thin beige head. Big blend of chocolate, vanilla, subtle and amazing coconut flavour. A bit aniseed on the end. Don’t taste like a porter, more likely to be somehow dark IPA or light stout. Easy to drink, very tasty.

Toasty malt aromas. Jet black colour with poor head. Nice coffee malt flavours, roasted malts also a feature. Med to heavy body with med carbonation ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Qual’è uno dei migliori sapori da associare a quello di una porter? Il cocco. L’ho scoperto dopo questa birra incredibile che convince molto più di tante sue sorelle europee. Dalle hawaii con furure: la coconut porter è unesperienza internazionale a lungo raggio che ripaga una scelta coraggiosa. Se la vedete, non lasciatevela scappare.

Consumed on tap at the Spoons by Liverpool St. Coffee, coconut, vanilla and dark chocolate. An enjoyable stout. A good level of hops but could do with more. A little sweet on the finish. The texture is good and the drinkability is high. I enjoy a nice porter every now and then and this is an interesting twist on the classic style. Good stuff.

Currently drinking whilst typing. Aroma is rich chocolate, toasted malt, well rounded sweetness from the coconut. A nice full creamy head sat on a rich black vessel. Flavour is of rich burnt malts, chocolate, subtle coconut is picked up when the beer has warmed suitably. Sweetness and nutty flavours also from the coconut, long cocoa finish very gentle bitterness. On the palate the beer is smooth and creamy, medium bodied and suitably carbonated. Overall this beer is truly lovely, not huge amounts of coconut initially but it is there! And for me that is a good thing. It could well be over powering but less is more in this case! Great beer, go get some! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: APR 19, 2010 April 10, 2010 JDW Spring fest - Rochester. Oooh. Nice. Brilliant idea to use coconut in beer and it works very well in this dark, chocolate flavoured ale, providing an exotic and unusual creamy sweetness to the balance the roasty bitterness. The soft, natural carbonation and freshness of cask conditioning brings this to life. This is lovely. [4.1]
April 15, 2010 JDW Spring fest - Rochester. Coconut, vanilla, lavender, coffee, chocolate, bitterness, raw licorice stick. Pleasant, though hasn’t rocked my world as much as first time. [3.7]

Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Black with tan head. I have been looking forward to this after reading previous comments and I certainly wasn’t disappointed. Yes it was sweet but it has a sticky milk chocolate flavoured body and with a late burnt bitterness, it’s smooth and tasty. Good beer, but I didn’t get a Coconut flavour. Never mind, this was really very likeable.

Hand pulled cask at many Wetherspoon pubs during their Spring 2010 festival. Almost black with a thick beige rocky head. Coffee and chocolate combine with the interesting addition of roasted coco nut to create a unique bitterness that is balanced by some smooth almost buttery coco nuttiness too. Excellent.
