Lovely coconut porter with lots of chocolate dark malts with almost a spicy feel from the coconut instead of the typical velvety feel i am used to. Interesting but i don’t think i would buy it very often.

47,3 cl can @ lusikka, BBE 22.12.2014
Aroma has toffee typical to british ales, coffee and licorice. Flavour has somewhat salty licorice, sweet and deep roasted tones, cold coffee and some ash. Quite pleasant for this ABV, I like the sweet cocoa notes here.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can that was a consolation prize when my local beer store tapped their keg of Wicked Weed Coquito Brown Ale. Deep dark brown thin pour, moderately creamy off white head. Mild but nice bitter cocoa nose. Surprisingly bitter, earthy coffee and bitter cocoa notes. Grassy finish. We’re bordering on Black IPA here.
