Bottle- Thanks Bernie. Pretty average porter. Unfortunate, because I love porters and coconut. Didn’t taste much coconut. Got some roasted chocolate notes and some wheaty malt. Otherwise a bit of a disappointment.

Pours a light brown color with ivory head. Pretty much cereal grains on the nose; same for the palate. I picked up no coconut or toasted coconut.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours from 12 oz bottle a very dark ruby brown, nearly black. Thin white layer of foam quickly dissipated. Aroma of dark chocolates, licorice, some faint coconut, roasted malted barley. Flavour is subdued, chocolate and roasted barley, coconut not present on my palate, if so very faint. Marginally decent porter, but yet its not my fave style either.

more rum than coconut and not too much rum which is probably better overall. a bit of richness in the body and some sugar. interesting aroma.

Bottle @ Whole Foods. Smelled great, with a hint of coconut. Tasted smooth but the coconut was not really present. Slightly watery. Only the 2nd Porter i’ve tried but it’s a bit too weak for my tastes.

Bottle. Very, very dark amber. Small off white head. Roasted grain, chocolate aroma that has a touch of sour. Taste is light coconut with chocolate and burnt grains with a sour finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, thanks to my brother! Roasty aroma with notes of chocolate and subtle hints of coconut. Pours very dark brown with a thin tan head and decent lacing. Roasted malt character up front with a hint of chocolate. Finishes clean and dry with the coconut flavor showing up subtly at the end. Pretty good, but could use more coconut.

A good beer but not great needs more coconut. Pour is dark brown with a small cream color head. A very nice aroma that is more porter then anything but it has so great milk chocolate flavor but still more coconut please.
