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.

Beachmaster (434) - Oklahoma, USA - JUL 22, 2016
Tall boy into a pint glass. Pours black, with a medium khaki head that lasts. Nose is cocoa and dark roast malt. Taste follows. Creamy mouth feel, with good cocoa and toasted coconut flavors. Some bitterness on the finish. Nicely rounded, well-balanced. Good stuff.

Aurelius (5004) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 17, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 17, 2016 Nice tallboy, very dark not quite opaque. Rich, nutty and roasty aroma. Sturdy, coffeeish flavors, very lightly sweet. Medium body. Finishes out with a lot of bittersweet chocolate. Thanks to NoleBeerNoleFun from BeerAdvocate.

RRistow12 (661) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - JUN 6, 2016
Tasted from can. Pours very dark cola colored brown with thin beige head that fades very quickly. Aroma is coconut, vanilla and dark chocolate. Taste is big time bitter chocolate. Not so much coconut on the taste. Also flavors of caramel and coffee. A little more bitter than I like but still a well done Porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Another solid beer from this brewery. Roasted barley surrounded by notes of chocolate. Easy drinking for what it is.

Braudog (6247) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - MAY 14, 2016
Draft at CLT airport. Dark and brooding. Bitter chocolate nose. Drinks with a nice cocoa essence. Lighter bodied, despite the flavor heft. (#6191, 5/14/2016)

Berard (602) - Salem, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 30, 2016
Pours burnt brown with a thin white head that lingers at the edges. Coco aroma with slight coffee aroma. Nice chocolate porter that isn't too sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bnokk (447) - Lee, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 10, 2016
APPEARANCE- hard to tell... It’s in a can. He head that pops through looks light and beige. The beer looks brownish, so it gets an average grade for appearance. NOSE- malty sweetness abounds when I pop this open. FLAVOR- sweet at the beginning with considerable (but not too much) bitterness at the end. I don’t taste much in the way of cocoa or coconut.

Brown with a thin foam. Slight coconut and chocolate malt aroma. Very nice body and more chocolate. Nice.
