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.

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 hasnít 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 wasnít disappointed. Yes it was sweet but it has a sticky milk chocolate flavoured body and with a late burnt bitterness, itís smooth and tasty. Good beer, but I didnít 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.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2010
Cask at Pilgrimís Progress (JDW), Bedford, in Spoons Spring Festival í10. Very dark brown, near black. Off white head. Sweet slightly spicy aroma. Taste was mainly chocolate for me, like a well sugared mug of Cadburyís drinking chocolate. A little, but very effective, bitterness. Immensely likeable beer. Canít see anything else in the Festival topping this beauty.

Cask@JDW, Hoylake. A dark brown ruby tinged affair with a medium sized foamy, lingering tan head. Aroma was candy sweet with fruit and coconut notes. Flavour was pretty decent, once again sweetish, with plenty of roast and chocolate, tasty hop bitterness mingling nicely with.... yes sir, some coconut. Liked it plenty. From Maui to Wolverhampton - Maui wowie.....

Cask - The Glass House (JDW), Norwich. Poured black with a big bubbly off-white head that settled to a fine creamy layer leaving a touch of lacing. Coconut comes through in the aroma with chocolate, some roastiness and hints of vanilla. Yes, itís sweet but thereís a good bitterness there to back it up in the finish. Lots of milk chocolate flavours, touches of vanilla and coffee. Thickish body, soft palate texture, a bit oily with low carbonation.
