Alexus (242) - Stavanger, NORWAY - DEC 1, 2011
Pours a very nice light brown head, which leaves nice lacing. Aromas filed with aromas, difficult to separate them. Tastes of dark chocolate, dried dark fruits and roasted malts. A very nice holiday ale!

Bottle (dmg notes). Nice head. Tar in aroma. Slightly acidic flavour with notes of dirt. Remembered it to be better (the last readable part on the note).

j12601 (9581) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUN 24, 2011
Bottle shared by Derek. Pours a deep black with a thin tan head. Touches of smokiness, malt and roast, toast and burning coconut. Very interesting aromas. Medium bodied, smokey and toasty, slightly sweet and definite age. Somewhat burnt rubber flavors. Lingering burnt notes. Still very interesting, but I don’t think I’m a big fan.

Bottle shared with others. Poured black with a creamy brown head that dissipated slowly to the edges. Aroma was full of coconut with a good amount of smoke and an odd burnt note. Flavor was similar with a good amount of coconut backed by a slight burnt note and some dark grains.

Thanks to Bosse for this one. .5l bottle into a tulip glass...The beer pours a dark brown with a light tan head, gone pretty quickly, not much lacing at at all...The aroma is super strong its sweet and very alcoholic, there is a ton going on, hard to put my finger on everything a boozy rum and coke, brown sugar, vanilla, christmas smells, lots of coca cola. Way too much going on, its super super weird, almost afraid to drink it, but here we go...The taste is super light, not a good sign for me., super light taste as well. Light herbal notes, close to a Great lakes christmas ale but made with a porter. Not a huge fan of this at all.

Labeled as Klin Kokos. Dark brown. Aroma is pretty much Malibu liqueur with some chocolate behind. Taste is very thin and watery, with some coconut water and a "old" note to it. Not very good.

Bottle 500ml (Batch #195) @ Apotekergaarden, Grimstad
Pours black with a very small tan head. Aroma has notes of roasted malt, licorice, chocolate, vanilla and coconut. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter with a long chocolate finish. Body is full, texture is thin to oliy, carbonation is flat.

Inte det att den var så jätte god, men det är kul att ha provat den eftersom den inte är lätt att få tag i. Vätskan är mörk, mycket kolsyra, kokos-andelen är inte så distinkt och hela smaken blir lite konstig sötsyrlig. Eftersmaken är nästan helt borta

SuzyGreenberg (1603) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 9, 2010
500 ml bottle; Klin Kokos label; big thanks to deyholla for the bonus bottle; pours opaque light brown with trace off-white head along the edges; creamy roast, pecan shells, light coffee, juniper, sour coconut; watery thin texture with sweet coconut, nutmeg-ish spice, vanilla and some very minor lactic sourness; the coconut and spice mix comes of slightly metallic and doesn’t really jive for my palate; lingering earthy bitterness that is kind of light birch syrup or something similar; raw and sugary with some bite to it; very light mouthfeel; interesting, but not really in my wheelhouse as far as porters go
