2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle from ABC Liquor on Thomasville rd. Dark brown pour with a big sturdy tan head. Aroma is toasted malts, vanilla, coconut and caramel. Tastes are disappointing after the pleasant aroma-- cocoa, nuts, burnt malts and light coconut. Acidic milky sour vibe. Eh.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. Poured very dark with a small tan head. The aroma is roasty, burnt sugar, mild sweetness. The flavor is of chocolate, soft coconut flavor. Not overly complex, overall a tasty beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark brown color with tan head. Aromas of toasted malts, chocolate and faint coconut. Toasted malt and nutty flavors with milk chocolate and a hint of coconut. I was hoping for more coconut flavor. Medium body with moderate carbonation.

Mahogany pour to the glass with a wispy head that reduces to a thin cap with little to no lace. The nose is of roasted barley and toasted coffee beans. Flavors show little coconut, but roasted grain and coffee dominate. The palate is a little thin of substance, but has enough going for it to make for a "java" brew, certainly not a "coconut" brew.

nice to see OBP stretch out into some more robust styles. this one isnt bad, plenty of chocolate and tobacco notes with a light coconut flavor. not too heavy too. pretty good.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours coca-cola brown, with a small, beige head. The aroma is toffee, molasses, and roasted malts. The flavor is sweet, with a faint roasted bitterness and a little spiciness. The palate is medium, syrupy, and sticky. Overall, this is a mediocre porter, and the coconut is minimal.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Liz. Pours dark brown with a creamy tan head. Aromas of chocolate and smooth burnt malt. Med body. Flavor is weak chocolate with burnt malt, and a certain slickness that might be coconut fat. Sort of lacking in ingredients, but certainly drinkable.

12 oz. bottle from Bottle Revolution in Raleigh, NC. Dark brown pour with a frothy khaki head. Aroma of dark chocolate and faint floral hops. I think I have a strong case against this brewery for false advertising; there is not even a trace of coconut in the flavor. This is a decent porter but nothing more.
