COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Chocolate and brown malts contribute a deep rich color with Ruby highlights in this robust Porter. Bitterness from American chocolate malt is balanced by the sweet roastiness of toasted organic coconut.

This was poured into a nonic pint glass. The appearance was a dark brown close to black color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than thirty seconds leaving some light lacing sliding into the beer. The smell started off with a sharp roasty to bitter coffee leaning towards a nice cocoa. As it warmed, a little bit of coconut rolls in to balance. The taste was mainly roasty and bitter and sweet through a nice combination between the coffee and cocoa. Once again, the coconut is subtle, still sweet. A quick roasty sweet aftertaste leads into a dry roasty finish. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a pretty good sessionability to sipping quality about it. The carbonation seemed good for the style and for me. Bitterness is there to impart a nice dryness rolling over my tongue. Overall, wow, what a wonderful American Porter. I didn’t mind that the coconut is milder than expected. Still, I would definitely have again.

On tap at Beer Study. Dark full black pour with one finger of tan head. Really nice roast in the nose, grain husk and burnt sugar. Nice body, medium to full bodied with a soft carbonation. Nice roast/dark grain character.

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.
