Have had this before but didnít 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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

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 Iíve tried.
It has the right mouthfeel, flavor, and body for a porter, and the taste is unique and well balanced.
