COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Chocolate and Brown malts contribute a stunningly deep rich color with ruby highlights in this Robust Porter. The slight bitterness from American chocolate is balanced with the sweet roastiness of toasted organic coconut. A great beer before, during, or after a meal!

Have had this before but didn’t rate it. Brown color, tan head, the usual. Some toasted coconut flavor but mostly just coffee and chocolate. I remember this as being richer, more unbalanced. Now it is more refined and just a downright good beer.

One of the best Porters out there. The coconut flavors are a perfect match with traditional Porter flavors, but NoDa balances them better than anyone else I’ve tried. It has the right mouthfeel, flavor, and body for a porter, and the taste is unique and well balanced.

On tap at NoDa. Pours a deep brown color with white head. Chocolate, roasty, malty aromas. Dark chocolate, coconut, roasty, light burnt flavors. Very solid porter.

Draft: pours a dark black with a light brown head. Aromas are sweet chocolate, but the coconut really starts to come in with the taste, it just lingers around on the tounge. Awesome porter, not over the top with the coconut.

On tap @ NoDa with jcnielsen. Pours a hazy orangish brown appearance with a brown head. Fair amount of ash and pecan in the nose. Some molasses and toffee as well and some chocolate. Moderate bitterness. A touch woody / organic. Chewy malty. Chocolate. Vanilla. Fairly nutty. Finishes a little too bitter.

Draft. Great appearance. Nice lacing. Too much on the roasted coffee aroma. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at A Taste of Carolina, CLT. Poured an almost black brown color with coffee, chocolate, roasted malts. Flavor was a bit nutty, malt forward, some toasty notes. Very flavorful, quite an enjoyable porter.
