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.

Intense toasted dark malts, cacao, filter coffee, light, sweet chocolate. Hazy, dark brown, small, creamy, beige head. Light bitter. Dark roast filter coffee, toasted dark malts, cacao, charcoal, some molasses, but immediately turning quite bitter and dry in the finish, lively carbonation, medium bodied. Very nice Porter, intense and rich aroma and palate. Keg at A Taste of Carolina, Charlotte.

RRistow12 (692) - 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.

bnokk (449) - 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.
