COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A brown porter thatíd be a great beer on its own is even better with a subtle toasted coconut character that complements the dark grains wonderfully. A complex and exotic potion thatís an easy drinking, refreshing tropical elixir.

Strong coffee and nutty aromas. Beautiful dark color. High carbonation. Doesnít hit your palate like a porter. Very gentle delivery. Cocoa, coffee, coconut, vanilla. Smooth, smooth finish.

12oz bottle from Brewmasters. Dark amber hue with off-white mostly diminishing fizzy head. Virtually no lacing. Heavy malt & coffee on the nose. Moderate chocolate malt up front with a hint of coconut on the finish, mostly malt though. Fizzy carbonation on the palate. I thought this was pretty good!

12 oz bottle. Pours dark brown with amber hues. Large head that faded to a ring of bubbles fairly quickly. Spotty lacing that slid down into the beer. Aroma and taste of coconut, chocolate, coffee, caramel, and toasted grain. Very nice sweet taste without being too sweet or candy like. Full body, creamy texture, moderate carbonation, dry bitter finish of toasted coconut and malt. Very nice! The inspiration of my next homebrew!

Pours cola brown in color with a thick light tan head. Aroma is heavy roasted malts and light coffee. Taste is coffee, a little chocolate sliding into a easy malty finish - canít really find the coconut, unless it is supplying some smoothness. Not super complex, but pleasant.

Bottle shared by b3shine at Jasonís Stone tasting. Pours a clear brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have toasted coconut, mild chocolate, lighter roast, mild earthy bitterness. OK for what it is.

Bottle from Publix Supermarket, Kissimmee, Florida. A very dark brown-black beer that pours without any head. It has chocolate, vanilla and coconut flavours, a slightly thin body followed by a creamy slight sour red fruity finish.

Decent porter, but a little bland. Barely taste the coconut. Wish this had more flavor, could have been great.
