COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A brown porter that’d 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 that’s an easy drinking, refreshing tropical elixir.

Apparence: D’une couleur noir, elle est coiffée d’une mousse ordinaire d’une courte durée. Bonne effervescence, difficile à dire pour la taille des bulles. Arômes: Au nez, ce sont des notes de malt rôtie qui dominent. On peut également sentir le coconut, mais subtile. Saveurs: Plus légère que j’aurais cru. C’est le malt rôtie qui domine. Ensuite, c’est l’effervescence qui embarque. Manque de coconut. Fiche technique : Style: Porter Format: 12 oz

Bottle. Pours murky brown/black with little to no head. Aroma is coconut, misc. nuttiness, slight caramel/cocoa notes. Taste is combination of those with some faint espresso notes. Really like this guy. Opens up while it warms. Nice use of coconut - subtle but present.

AWISLguy (2450) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 27, 2014
Bottle from Total Wine in Jensen Beach. Pours a reddish brown with a white head leaving a bit of streaky lace. Aroma has ... caramel. Maybe a bit of earth and tabasco. Taste is of sweet caramel, brown sugar and peat, with more earthiness. Oysters? Some alcohol. Not stellar. Old bottle??

KnowThyBeer (26) - Wilmington, North Carolina, USA - DEC 23, 2013
Strong coffee and nutty aromas. Beautiful dark color. High carbonation. Doesn’t 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!

jhp40219 (445) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - NOV 4, 2013
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!
