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.

The taste is quite simply good. It is not tremendously complex, it does not taste world-class or ’rare’, but it does not seem to aspire in those directions anyway. It is just beer, and it is a dark roasty beer, and it is easy to drink.

Beerathon (1286) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 8, 2013
A very bitter porter. Super dark brown with quickly disappating head. Aroma has coffee. A bit a sweetness comes from the coconut, but not much. Not special, but okay.

Beerman6686 (4713) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 20, 2013
This poured a light to medium brown color, fairly opaque, with a small beige head. Aroma was of light chocolate, and light coconut and metal. Flavor was very weak and astringent, light roast and coconut, but watery and messy.

Eckato (147) - Gulfport, Florida, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Pours very dark...from bottle, no head whatsoever....aromas of chocolate very strong...tastes chocolatey....with a little kick of coconut at the finish...first sip was nice. Very drinkable, and not weird like I thought it would be.

Jabic (431) - Brigantine, New Jersey, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Ar: Light chocolate, some coffee, toasted coconut. Ap: Deep brown, clear - small light tan head with poor retention and a think ring of lacing. T: Coffee, dark caramel - sharp ash, some blueberry - finish is water coffee and medium-low bitterness. P: Light body, high carbonation - finish is dry. O: Nice aroma, but the flavors sort of fall flat, and the beer lacks any real sweetness or body.

Light cocoa aromas. Light chocolate with a little coconut on the finish. Overall a decent porter.

nearbeer (3847) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 30, 2012
12 oz. Opaque black with a fleeting, sizzling soda pop head. Nose is ash, dark chocolate, caramel and a hint of blackberry. Flavor is char and ash, dark chocolate, and tart apple and blackberry with a metallic tinge. Eventually I catch a faint toasted nut flavor in the long aftertaste that appears to be coconut. Light-medium body is drinkably watery and has low carbonation. The very light touch of coconut is nice, but the metallic twinge (although not overpowering) dampens the enjoyment of this beer.

Digital_Aura (227) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 23, 2012
12 oz. bottle pours a black burgundy (Lovibond 35) with no action and small head - going, going, gone. No real notable aromas. Watery, thin palate with no carbonation. Taste is rather bland, some toastiness, which combined with the flat body makes for a disappointing brew. Don't detect coconut at all. Boring.

Suttree (5266) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 22, 2012
Black, with no head to speak of, Smells like coffee and ash, plus maybe a hint of coconut. Maybe. Taste dry, woody and coffee, with maybe a touch of coconut. Kinda thin and watery, too. Needs more coconut...

12oz bottle. Very dark brown, tan head. Aroma of roasted cereal grains. Tastes like a Porter. Roasted malt, some chocolate. Smooth flavor, creamy body. No real detection of coconut. (3542)
